epoché 700 - rim only
ep·o·che | \ ˈepəˌkē \Definition: the suspension of judgment; a setting aside assumptions and beliefs
We designed our epoché 700c wheel system to defy expectations and be as at home climbing into the clouds on tarmac as grinding out a gravel century. These wheels will take any tire you throw at them (including tubed) and feel whip quick, whether you're riding knobbies or featherweight road slicks.

We’re on this ride together.
Put simply, you’re supporting us with your purchase, and we’ll be here to support you in your ride experience. If one of our products fails due to a manufacturing defect within the first five years of ownership, we’re going to take care of you by repairing or replacing it. And for everything else, we’re still going to take care of you via at-cost crash replacements and service guidance.
At-Cost Crash Replacements
Even the most thoughtfully-engineered products have their limits, and in the unlikely event that you exceed ours, we’ll want to get you back in the saddle as quickly and painlessly as possible. That’s why, rather than heavily marking up our products and offering “discounted” crash replacements from which we still profit, we offer at-cost replacements on non-wear items and direct pricing on everything else. Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with photos and a description along with any serial numbers (under the rim tape in the case of a rim) and we’ll get you sorted out.
Flawless, Right Out of the Mold
Our High-Precision Molding Process achieves a consistently clean raw matte carbon finish free of excess resin, fillers, or post-mold coatings for a beautiful rim with exceptional strength-to-weight.
Optimized Layups put tough mid-modulus carbon in impact zones and stiff higher-modulus carbon in non-impact zones while reinforcing spoke holes and other high-stress areas.
Engineered for Excellence
Asymmetric Profiles with individually-reinforced and angle-drilled spoke holes balance spoke angles and tensions to increase wheel strength and durability without increasing spoke counts.
Aero Optimized for a 30mm road slick, but wide enough to support supple high volume knobbies. Our epoché 700 can keep up on a road ride, without getting knocked around in a crosswind, or rail berms when your gravel ride starts tiptoeing towards mountainbike territory.
Universal Tire Compatibility
High-Impact Bead Hooks on our 700C rims are as tough and light as hookless while also allowing the safe use of both tubeless and tubed clincher road tires at pressures up to 110psi. No pressure or compatibility constraints, no blow-off anxieties, no compromises.
Beadlocks keep tire beads securely in place under constantly changing loads to prevent burping and blowoffs.
