The T55 is TOKEN’s best selling carbon fibre tubular wheelset and it’s easy to see why because of the amazing balance of aerodynamics, weight and stiffness. We put this wheel into a wind tunnel and stacked it against some of the best-known wheels on the market. Overall, it ranked among the best we tested. It’s no surprise, really, because from the start we built this wheelset with aerodynamics as the most important consideration.
Thanks to its shape and low weight the T55 excels in all kinds of conditions, from windy and flat to hills and winding roads. The rim shape and width makes it very fast in straight lines, but when the wind comes from the side, you won’t be fighting for control, even if you’re using these wheels on a time trial or triathlon bike. These wheels aren’t limited to races against the clock - they are just as fast on climbs and under power.
To help cut the weight and make climbing easier, we build the T55 around our super light Arsenal hubset using Sapim CX-RAY spokes using the Diametric Spoke Pattern. This build ensures that the wheel is stiff and responsive but retains an ability to absorb road buzz and cushion bumps.
With such a great set of features and versatility, it’s no wonder this wheel has been raced by road race pros and triathlon stars including Cameron Brown. The T55 will spin up quickly and give you a boost of speed, regardless of what kind of terrain you face and what kind of rider you are.
