The 55mm aero profile sits right in that sweet spot of aerodynamics versus handling, so you'll find it easy to control even in crosswinds. Firing up for sprints is effortless thanks to the TBT bearings inside the Arsenal hub which are designed to minimize rolling resistance. The C55 has the added benefit of AVT to dampen impact and reinforce the overall strength of the wheel without compromising on weight. Finally, TgX e poxy and our specially designed brake pads for carbon rims ensure that extreme temperatures created during braking dissipate quickly preventing any damage to the rim.
AVT (Anti-Vibration Technology)
Token have fused a top-secret material with carbon to create AVT (Anti- Vibration Technology). Weight for weight, AVT is eight times stronger than steel, resistant to high temperatures, fatigue, impact and the corrosion from chemicals or saltwater. A layer of AVT is cvast inside of the rim which gives you a super high tensile strength wheel and significantly reduces vibration.
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. Token have treated their rims with a high Tg epoxy to withstand the extreme temperatures created during braking. Coupled with their specially designed carbon rim brake pads the temperatures from braking dissipate faster and improve overall braking performance. TgX gives you extreme performance.
TBT Bearings (Tiramic Bearing Technology) deliver outstanding performance. Ceramic balls are 60% lighter than steel, extremely durable, smoother and accelerate faster than their steel counterparts. The starting torque of Tiramic Bearings is only 74% of normal bearings while the turning torque is only 67% of normal bearings. Both these factors significantly reduce chain drag making pedaling lighter and your ride much smoother.
Weapons Grade Machining
Built using weapons grade 5-axis CNC machining processes that ensure
a very high level of accuracy in the hub’s construction.
Diametric Spoke Pattern
On the drive side of the rear wheel you’ll find double the number of spokes compared to the non-drive side. The two sides are metaphorically at war with each other as their battle to keep balanced spoke tension across the wheel rages on. Neither side wins, but they equally contribute to creating perfectly balanced power transfer allowing you to confidently fight your own cycling battles.

I'd presume this is all pretty standard figures though because my bike shop was amazed by how light they were. When compared with other wheels in the store it did feel like it deserved to be around the number advertised.
I have SRAM gears on my bike, does that mean I should be looking for the SRAM version? For this wheel to be fitted would that be something to do with the sizing of the cassette or something like that?
Any idea what it is for?
