Powertap hub: need help identifying

Hello all,

I just got a bike that has a Powertap read hub. I have done some searching but could not get a solid answer on which one the attached picture is. One thing the pic does not show is there is a very small white square on the outside area that has “Ant+” on it. Does anyone know which Powertap hub this is, and is it worth building a new set of wheels around it?

thanks for all the help!

PowerTap SL+. 412 grams. Works great, looks great.

With no marking, it could have been a SL which was upgraded to ANT+ or in its original proprietary 2.4 GHz form that only worked with the CycleOps computer.
