WHAT IS AVT?

Using a high-tech material normally found in aerospace and military applications, TOKEN is bringing a whole new riding experience to the cycling world. When this technologically advanced material is combined with our carbon wheels the result is a super-high tensile strength wheel which significantly reduces vibration. We simply call it, Anti-Vibration Technology! Or AVT, because it’s just easier and takes less time to say.

AVT shares a lot of the same properties as Kevlar. Now we're not aiming to stop bullets here, but the strength of Kevlar is one of the key factors we wanted from AVT in our wheels. Weight for weight, AVT is eight times stronger than steel and resistant to high temperatures, fatigue, impact and the corrosion from chemicals or salt water.

HOW IS IT USED IN THE WHEEL?

The AVT material found in TOKEN wheels is bound with carbon to form a layer inside the rim that distributes impact evenly (see diagram). When compaired to other existing methods of impact dampening (ie: stitched threads of kevlar on the outer rim) our AVT layer provides greater overall wheel strength. Therefore in the event of an accident the wheel keeps its shape and offers better protection.

AVT is truly an Innovative andvanced wheel techology and the very best that we have to offer riders.

IT’S ALMOST AS IF IT CAME FROM ANOTHER PLANET……

A TOKEN EXCLUSIVE DESIGN

AVT is a TOKEN Exclusive Design (TED). TED means we guarantee that you won't find these products anywhere else!

 

WHEELSETS CONTAINING AVT

Anti-Vibration Technology can be found in the following wheel sets.

Clincher - C28/C45/C50/C590
Tubular - T28
MTX - C18CR

All our wheels undergo rigorous testing above and beyond what is normally required for most wheels.
Each wheel is also put through a 2-cycle spoke tension release process to ensure that the wheel is true and round. This is our basic written standard and something we are very proud of at TOKEN.

All carbon wheels come with a 2 year warranty and a crash replacement policy.

 

Tgx

TgX = Tg-eXtreme. Tg (glass transition) is the temperature at which the epoxy used to treat carbon rims begins to deteriorate. When the epoxy reaches Tg the outward pressure of the tire and tube can cause the rim’s sidewall to deform, potentially resulting in a catastrophic failure. We treat all our rims with a high Tg epoxy to withstand the extreme temperatures created during braking. Coupled with our specially designed carbon rim brake pads, the temperatures from braking dissipate faster and improve overall braking performance. TgX gives you extreme performance.

 

SWIFT-EDGE

The SwiftEdge rim possesses a wider shape providing you, the rider, with better aerodynamics and improved handling and stability, especially through cornering.

TUBELESS FIT

We engineered the rim to ensure a flawless seal for when you want to ride using tubeless tires. You’ll experience a nice slick ride with near puncture-proof performance.
