Token  Konax Pro Zenith Carbon Tubeless Ready Wheelset - Shimano

Although we don't like to use the term 'a great all-round wheelset', here is an exception. The Token Konax Zenith Pro tubeless-ready carbon road wheelset is designed for riding fast, regardless of the terrain. With a 52 mm deep aerodynamic carbon rim, this wheelset performs exceptionally well on flatter courses, however, weighing just 1452 grams per pair, this wheelset certainly won't slow you down on mountainous roads either. Similarly, thanks to the 27.4mm wide, tubeless compatible rim design, the Token Konax Zenith wheelset allows you to run larger tyres at lower pressures for optimum grip, comfort and puncture protection on the roughest cobbles. Due to the lower-quality resin used by some manufacturers, other carbon wheelsets can wear alarmingly quickly under sustained braking. However, by constructing the braking track with a highly heat resistant 'TgX' resin, Token has ensured that this wheelset can effectively dissipate high temperatures caused by extensive braking on longer descents. This highly durable design feature results in a rim with a much longer life-span. At the core of this wheelset lies the 5-axis machined precision hubset, which are stronger, lighter and more durable than standard CNC-machined hubs. Using the TFT bearing system which utilises both ceramic and stainless-steel bearings, along with Token's proprietary washer system, the internals of these hubs spin smoother for longer, resisting both poor weather conditions and wear. These hubs are laced to the rims via 18 spokes on the front and 21 spokes on the rear. To maximise wheel performance, Token has employed their diametric spoke pattern which uses a radial spoke pattern on the non-drive side and a triple crossed spoke pattern on the drive side of the rear wheel. As a result, this wheelset is lighter, using fewer spokes than a standard wheelset, without sacrificing any strength.
