An asymmetric rim profile is a well known method to gain better balanced spoke tension when designing a symmetrically perfect wheel is not an option. After many cups of coffee and meetings with various engineers, we realized that the asymmetric properties for different rim widths, different riding conditions, and different materials used should not be the same. Our research has shown that rims should have a relevant spoke bed offset, and that's what the term RAR (Relevant Asymmetric Rim) refers to.
CONTI-FIBRE is an innovative carbon rim manufacturing process that we've invested in for more than 3 years. The main part of the rim is pre-formed by machine so the structure is uniform and symmetrical. Excess material overlaps and human error are eliminated, so the rim structure has virtually no weak point. This results in not only a lighter, but also a stronger rim. We can even tweak the rim structure in the machine to optimize it for different applications, such as rim brake or disc brake.
There are a lot of advantages to running tubeless tyres including a more comfortable ride, better traction and fewer flats. To make it easy for you, our Tubeless Ready wheels come with airtight rim tape installed and the required valve. Simply mount your tubeless tyre, add sealant, inflate then enjoy the ride!
Premium Bearings are our high carbon steel bearings. We make these bearings to higher standard so they run smoother and last longer. They are suited to people who ride often in all conditions.
The military uses 5-axis CNC machining because they need to have very precise parts to make sure missiles land in the right place. We also use 5-axis machining, though our high-end hubs aren’t equipped with missiles. We use this kind of CNC machine because it allows us to build hubs very precisely; this means they are stronger, lighter and more durable than standard CNC machined hubs.
Accidents happen and we can’t prevent them but if you break your rim in a crash or some other incident then we will give you 35% off a replacement rim. *Some conditions apply, contact your local distributor or us through the contact form under the "About" section at the top of the page.
All TOKEN products come with 2 year warranty. All our wheelsets are covered by TOKEN’s crash replacement policy.
