Description

The Tokyowheel™ Epic 50 is what we recommend for riders looking for the best of both worlds. It climbs and handles well but provides noticeable aerodynamic advantage. It’s great for long bike rides, group rides and will hold it’s own in a variety of different competitive settings. Tokyowheel™ Vapor road bike hubs eliminate internal friction - boosting riding efficiency and durability. Feel confident when you apply brakes onto the DuraHeat-R™ High-Temperature Carbon braking surface. Not only does it stop you faster, with greater stability, but it's much more durable on brake heavy rides (like long descents). Ride fast, ride far with Tokyowheel™ Epic 50.

Epic 50mm Deep Carbon Rim. All-Around Aero Performer.

Tokyowheel Epic 50mm Carbon Road Bike Wheels

The Epic 50mm rim is ideal for riders that tackle both long/flat rides (where aerodynamics are particularly advantageous), and fast group rides or hill climbs (where light weight and stability are critical). A great all-around contender.


Full Carbon Clincher. High Strength Carbon for Lightweight Performance.

Carbon Clincher Rim

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 gives you a wheel that is very light, with positive braking performance, and reliable durability.


Extra Wide 26mm Rim Increased Aerodynamics and Improved Handling.

Extra Wide 26mm Carbon Rim

The extra wide rim has multiple benefits. The rim's 26mm 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 creates a wider contact patch between the tire and the road, resulting in improved handling and reduced rolling resistance. The 25mm outer rim also allows the wheel to fit into most frame and brake setups.


Elliptic-Toroidal Rim. Reduce Aerodynamic Drag.

*Epic 38 Shown

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Airflow Simulation

The Tokyowheel Elliptic-Toroidal rim shape reduces Aerodynamic drag by matching the spoke side of the rim to the round shape of a tire. This elliptical shape makes the leading edge and the trailing edge of the rim more symmetric. Our CFD aerodynamic simulations have validated that this Elliptic-Toroidal shape provides more uniform airflow, and reduced drag over the primary Yaw angles between 0 to 20 degrees.


Aero Braking Surface. Less Drag and More Stability.

*Epic 60 Shown

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Airflow Simulation

The 3 degree angled Aero Braking Surface improves the overall aerodynamics of the wheel by: smoothing the interface between the tire and the rim, reducing net drag on the rim in crosswinds, and adding to the elliptical symmetry of the wheel.


2-Way Clincher Tubeless. Tubes or No-Tubes - You Choose.

Tokyowheel 2-Way Tubeless Clincher

*Epic 60 Shown

Use either traditional tires with tubes, or tubeless tires without tubes. Tubeless tires can provide lower rolling resistance and better protection from punctures.

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

DuraHeat-R™ Carbon Braking Surface

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


Spokes

3.2mm Aero Bladed Spokes. Increase Wheel Strength and Improve Aerodynamic Performance.

3.2mm Aero Bladed Spokes

3.2mm Aero Bladed spokes come standard on all Tokyowheels, and offer the improved aerodynamics of the bladed spoke shape.


Sapim CX-Ray. Premium spokes Included with all hub upgrades.

Sapim Cx-Ray Spokes & Sapim Sils Nipples

Arguably the best spokes in the world. The aerodynamic shape of the CX-Ray is also 30% lighter than standard round spokes.

Hubs


Standard Hubs and Spokes
Tokyowheel™ VAPOR 2 Hubs & Aero Bladed Spokes

Lightweight, durable road bike hubs and strong aerodynamic spokes. Available with optional Sapim Cx-Ray Spokes and Ceramic Bearings


Optional DT Swiss Hubs and Sapim Spokes
DT Swiss 240s Straight-Pull Hubs + Sapim CX-Ray Spokes

One of the most well known names in hubs. DT Swiss components have a long history of quality and high performance.


Tokyowheel Vapor Disc. Premium spokes Road & Cyclocross Disc Brake Hubs.

Tokyowheel Vapor Disc Front Hub

The Vapor Disc's super light-weight hub shell is specifically designed for road disc bikes, and much lighter then a MTB designed hub set. It has a minimalist ISO 6 bolt disc mount and quick releases. We've paired it with Sapim CX-Ray straight pull spokes and SILS nipples laced 2x all around. The free-hub is a 6 pawl design, with 2 teams of 3 pawls working independently. This gives very quick engagement, and redundancy for durability. The Vapor disc is a great choice for a lightweight high performance road disc bike. Get this upgrade and your wheels come with disc specific rims.


DT Swiss 240s Straight Pull Disc.Premium spokes Premium Center Lock Disc Brake Hubs with Thru-Axels

DT Swiss 240s Disc Brake

This hubset is compatible with center lock brake rotors, and mounts with 15mm front and 12mm rear Thru-Axels. Laced 2x to 28 Straight Pull Sapim CX-Ray spokes per wheel. The DT Swiss 240s Straight Pull Disc Brake is a great choice for a super strong cyclocross, disc road wheelset. Get this upgrade and your wheels come with disc specific rims.
