Coach Conversations: Hunter Allen on Advantages of a PowerTap
As a cycling coach, the ease at which PowerTap goes on your bike is a huge advantage! Athletes stop by our PCG headquarter all the time and want to test power, and with PowerTap, we just stick it on their bike and go! As coaches we know that trusting the power numbers is big! You can't change an athlete's threshold if you are not sure that the numbers are accurate.
I've been using PowerTap since '98 and as a company they have been innovating and improving their product every year! When I see power data from a PowerTap, I know I can trust it! Plus, PowerTap is the only power meter you can buy that will instantly make you faster! I can speak from experience that the super-fast Smart ENVE wheels make you go faster from the start...then get on-board with training and watch out!
