Speed shouldn’t be only reserved for those who can afford a set of racing wheels and a set of training wheels. The C590 combines the speed of a deep carbon wheel with the everyday usability of a clincher wheel.
Token have paired a 50mm deep front wheel with a 90mm rear so you can slice through the air. In order to increase stiffness and durability Token use a Diametric Spoke Pattern on the rear wheel which pairs two spokes on the drive side with a single spoke on the non-drive side. The spokes are laced to the low profile Arsenal hubset.
This hubset is small in size so there is less drag and less weight. At just a touch over 1700 grams, this certainly isn’t a climbing wheel but it’s light enough that you can keep up your speed on rolling courses. And to keep you rolling fast with little effort, Token’s premium bearings are used. These bearings have noticeably less friction than other bearings, but they are equipped with high quality seals to keep out water.
These wheels can take abuse from Monday to Friday but when it comes to race day, they can also carry you to victory. They are ideal for training and competing in triathlon or time trial races.
In addition to all the performance features, these BBR wheels come with black reflex decals that will match almost any bike thanks to their stealth look. But hit them with a flash from a camera or car lights and the decals become bright white.
