Description

After many years of trying different clincher / tubeless ready carbon products sourced from Xiamen province in China (where most of the world’s carbon bicycle components come from), I’ve settled on my own branded  Toray carbon T700/T800 full carbon rims which I believe provides the best of everything available in a rim – lightweight, aerodynamics and stiffness that is truly reliable.

I have extensively tested and ridden these rims myself in the worst weather and terrain in the Peak District and they take a lot of abuse. Each wheelset is laced using either black Sapim CX-Ray’s or black Sapim Laser and Sapim Race on the rear drive side and your choice of hubs – DT Swiss, Chris King, Extralite, PMP, Shimano Dura-Ace as well as the Powertap G3. Budget option hubs are also available from Miche and Ambrosio.

Due to ordering in bulk I can offer these rims at a bit less than rims with different depths / spoke hole counts. They’re available either unbranded or with my 23MM fluro orange/grey logo.

All rim-brake rims are 20 or 24-spoke front and 24 or 28-spoke rear only.
