The Tokyowheel™ Elite 38 is what we recommend for people interested in fast group riding and climbing. It’s light, responsive and crosswind friendly - guaranteed to handle well in all conditions. Tokyowheel™ Vapor road bike hubs eliminate internal friction - boosting riding efficiency and durability.
Feel confident when you apply brakes onto the DuraHeat-R High-Temperature Carbon braking surface. Not only does it stop you faster, with greater stability, but it's much more durable on brake heavy rides (like long descents). Ride fast, ride far with the Tokyowheel™ Elite 38.
Stability in Windy Conditions
Acceleration & Climbing
The Elite 38mm rim is our lightest and most stable. Great for sprints, climbing and riding in high winds.
Using the latest carbon forming technology, we are able to build a very strong rim from carbon only. A critical area for durability, the braking surface of the tubular rim is up 73% stronger than other carbon tubular rims. This gives you a wheel that is very light with positive braking performance and reliable durability.
The extra wide rim has multiple benefits. The rim's 26mm max width improves aerodynamics by creating a more uniform airflow over the wheel - balancing the aerodynamic forces of the rim with the leading edge of the tire. The 25mm width creates a wider contact patch between the tire and the road, resulting in improved handling and reduced rolling resistance. The 25mm outer rim also allows the wheel to fit into most frame and brake setups.

Tokyowheel rims are balanced for the weight of long inner-tube valves.
3.2mm Aero Bladed spokes come standard on all Tokyowheels, and offer the improved aerodynamics of the bladed spoke shape.
Arguably the best spokes in the world. The aerodynamic shape of the CX-Ray is also 30% lighter than standard round spokes.Learn More
Lightweight, durable road bike hubs and strong aerodynamic spokes. Available with optional Sapim Cx-Ray Spokes and Ceramic Bearings
Choose any hub upgrade and we will also upgrade your quick release skewers to Titanium.
Tokyowheel BlueStop 2G carbon brake pads (1 pair per wheel). We also recommend Swiss Stop Yellow King brake pads.
Use standard tubes and extend the valve length to accommodate deep carbon rims.

14-21 days is our estimated delivery window. We make this window 95% of the time. If you have an event coming up or something we can put a rush on the order. This means it will be processed preferentially where possible, which will shave a few days off the lead time.
We include the correct length valve extenders for every order. If you prefer to not use extenders and go with longer tube valve stems please be aware that the exact valve length required can be affected by your pump head. With most pumps you should be safe with 15mm of valve left showing out of the rim and some work with as little as 12mm.
