Description

Tokyowheel™ Epic 88 is the Best Maximum Aero Carbon Clincher Road Bike & Triathlon Wheelset. Recommended for riders that want the most aerodynamic wheels available for long road bike rides and triathlons.

Epic 88 is a no compromise wind splitting weapon. Built around the Epic 88mm, 100% carbon, clincher rim, this wheelset is designed to reach max top speeds on flats, and go long distances with as little effort as possible. Tokyowheel Vapor™ road bike hubs eliminate internal friction and boost riding efficiency and durability.

Feel confident when you apply the brakes onto the Epic 88's DuraHeat-R™ High-Temperature Carbon braking surface. Not only does it stop you quicker, with greater stability, but it's much more durable on brake heavy rides, like long descents. Ride fast, ride far with Tokyowheel™ Epic 88 carbon wheels.

Full Carbon Clincher. High Strength Carbon for Lightweight Performance.

Using the latest carbon forming technology, we are able to build a very strong rim from carbon only. A critical area for durability, the tire bead hook of the EPIC clincher rim is up 73% stronger than other carbon clincher rims. This give you a wheel that is very light with positive braking performance and reliable durability.


Extra Wide 27mm Rim Increased Aerodynamics and Improved Handling.

The extra wide rim has multiple benefits. The rim's 27mm max width improves aerodynamics by creating a more uniform airflow over the wheel, balancing the aerodynamic forces of the rim with the leading edge of the tire. The 25mm width at the tire mount and braking surface spread out out the tire, which creates a wider contact patch between the tire and the road resulting in improved handling and reduced rolling resistance. The 25mm outter rim also allows the wheel to fit into most frame and brake setups.

Extra Wide 27mm Carbon Rim

DuraHeat-R™ Carbon Braking Surface

DuraHeat-R™ High-Temperature Carbon. Better Braking Performance.

DuraHeat-R™ High-Temperature Carbon braking surface. Not only does it stop you quicker, with greater stability, but it's much more durable on brake heavy rides, like long descents.
