BIG news and toys from CycleOps

Wow !!!!

Today was a big day for new toys from Cycleops. In one day they announced a complete new set of power meter hubs, new power meter enable wheelsets, new head units and even a heart rate strap that calculates power based on your heart rate and sends it to a head unit… Cycleops has been busy !!!

The new powertap hubs

PowerTap hubs

Dubbed G3, and coming in August, the PowerTap G3 weighs 325 gram and is a smaller hub than the previous powertap models. Starting at only $799 (for the Pro model) these are aggressively priced and aim at making power meter more common place (hooray !!) … Still some way to go, but certainly a move in the right direction. The lighter G3 will sell for $1,299  An even lighter model called the G3C will also be available.

Joule Computers

Only available in November, CycleOps to have two new head units, including a version with GPS. The $169 Joule features upgrades from the company’s 2.0 and has the same features like TSS, IF, customizable dashboard, etc…

The $269 Joule GPS is similar to a Garmin 500 where it does not have maps, but records GPS data for upload to a computer so we can look at the route and all data. GPS is a great feature and I think more important to analyze it after the ride, than during the ride. During the ride, GPS can proved speed and distance (even directions), and map data can be analyzed after the ride.

My only complaint is… these units are REALLY ugly… I mean, look at the previous Joule 2.0 unit…. much nicer.

Joule 2.0

Hopefully since these are prototypes, the new Joule will improve on it’s look and screen readability before it is launched into the market.

The new CycleOps wheelset with integrated power meter hubs

Together with the new hubs, CycleOps will make available new wheelsets with the G3 hub pre-built. Using ENVE 45mm and 65mm carbon tubular and clincher rims, CycleOps will be selling G3 carbon-rim wheelsets for $2,999 and alloy-rim wheelsets for $1,399. The Pro hub will also be sold as a wheelset with alloy rims for $999… Great intro-level price !!!!.

The all-new (and intriguing) CycleOps wheelset with integrated power meter hubs

The most intriguing new product has to be the $199 PowerCal computer head converts heart-rate data to a power reading. This ANT+ heart rate strap has a special computer that converts hear rate data into power from a previously performed graded power test. The test must be done and the calibration transferred to the computer inside the hart rate strap. It calculates your work in watts and kilojoules based on your heart rate and sends it to a head unit (Joule, or even a GARMIN) via ANT+.

Heart watts

Very intriguing… but how accurate can it be?? CycleOps claims that it will be 5% accurate, but I reserve my opinion until after I test it.

The software side of new products

What would any of these new toys be, if it weren’t for software?

Cycleops introduced a new web based service for comparing performance. The CycleOps Training Camp. The service will compete directly with a host of others, like Strava, Garmin Connect,  and others in this already very crowded, allowing profile set up, uploading of ride data, “friend” other cyclists, create teams and see where you rank on a global scoreboard in any number of categories including ride time, intensity and distance. This will debut in July around the Tour de France.

Also, CycleOps is introducing PowerTap’s VR Training. The Virtual Reality program will allow for course duplication, allowing ride data to be loaded into Training Camp. Any videos will be either popular routes provided by CycleOps, or will be user-generated, with Google map fly-over video. The rides can also be downloaded to your home power trainer. The software will now come included with 400 Pro and PowerBeam trainers, or stand-alone for $200.

WOW !!! This was a big day for cyclist and tri-athletes who love numbers !!!!!! Smile 

Hooooray !!!!!
