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.
Stability in Windy Conditions
Rim depth is the defining characteristic of a carbon wheel. The Epic 88mm rim is the most aerodynamic rim we offer. Ideal for long flat rides, triathlons, and time trials.
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.
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.

Standard 3.2mm Aero Bladed spokes comes standard on all Tokyowheels, and offer the improved aerodynamics of the bladed spoke shape.
Arguably the best spokes in the world. The aerodynamic shape of the CX-Ray is also 30% lighter than standard round spokes.Learn More
Lightweight, smooth rolling, and durable. Vapor hubs, feature a 6 pawl cassette (Industry standard is 3 pawls), for better power engagement to the wheel. With 4 sealed cartridge bearings in the rear hub and 2 in the front, Vapor hubs are great all around durable road bike hubs.
A lighter version of our Vapor hub, with ceramic bearings for the ultimate in low friction rolling. 4 USA Enduro Ceramic bearings are used in each of the front and rear hubs (Industry standard hubs use only 2 bearings per hub). The extra 2 bearings per hub distribute forces across a greater number of bearing balls and improve durability and bearing life.Get this hub upgrade and we will include Titanium quick release skewers.Learn More

Our build process starts with support. Choosing your new wheels can be a difficult decision. We understand that and are here to help. Send us an email or give us a call and ask us a few questions about your future wheels. We will help you choose the best wheelset for you. Once you've placed an order, we keep in touch with you while your order is processing and support you after you've received your new wheels.
Building wheels is one of the few things that machines can't do as well as humans. Although a handmade wheel and a machine made wheel might look the same initially, the hand made wheel will ride faster and more comfortably and stay truer over time. Tokyowheel master wheel-builders assemble, true, balance, and test every wheelset to exact precision standards, to ensure that your wheels perform perfectly, for as long as you own them.
Your wheels are built to within very strict tolerances limits, to guaranteed you the most durable highest performing wheels
