The ultimate lightweight wheelset. Designed for rides with a lot of climbing and sprinting. The EPIC 3.4 is the lightest aerodynamic wheel, with the best handling.
The EPIC 3.4 is the ideal wheelset for road races involving a lot of climbing or attack sprinting. It's great for gaining speed out of criterium racing corners. The incredibly stable handling keeps things safe when riding in a peleton, and the light weight, high stiffness wheel system is great for breakaways or catching the wheel of a passing rider.
For the best triathlon time savings, we generally recommend a higher rim depth wheelset, like the EPIC 7.10 , but if you are looking for a wheelset for very windy conditions the EPIC 3.4 is for you. Choose this wheelset if your looking for an ultra stable lightweight wheelset for windy days or courses with significant climbing.
The EPIC 3.4 is the perfect recreational wheelset. You will love the dramatic increase in speed over traditional wheels. The highly stable EPIC 3.4 is great for side-by-side or paceline riding in group rides. The lightweight and super stiff rim design will help you on climbs and when sprinting to catch, or break away, from other riders.
