Aero Rim: The full carbon Epic aero wheel 38 mm rim features a 27.2 mm Toroidal profile which integrates well with a 25 mm or wider tire, the U shape carbon aero wheel also allows for increased stability in crosswinds. The real show-stopper is the improved braking performance and heat tolerance capability of the wheel thanks to some innovative technology in the rim track that helps manage and dissipate the heat generated from braking.

Hub: Straight pull hubs are made for straight spokes with no bend at the head. Same as the classic DT Swiss hubs they have earned their legendary reputation for quality and performance. There are multiple features that make this product a winner: The Ratchet System driver mechanism is extremely durable, reliable and can be serviced without special tools in minutes, thanks to its simple press fit assembly. The press fit assembly also allows most hubs to work in almost any currently existing axle configuration, making them compatible with almost every bike. The contact free seals and high precision build guarantee smooth bearings; every bit of the rider’s energy is transformed into forward momentum. These features and the super lightweight design of all the hub parts highlights the racing legacy of this classic hub.

Spokes:  Our Epic 38 mm aero wheels use the Pillar 1420 spoke. Pillar receives one of the best results in fatigue vs weight testing of any spoke. Its unique strength and flexibility make the 1420 the perfect choice for our wheels. We have the ability to design our wheels to your requirements. If your preference is CX-RAYs let us know.
