Our new rim brake specific EP30 SL carbon clinchers are a cutting edge option for those looking for a lower profile, lightweight carbon tubeless-ready rim with a modern, 19mm internal rim width. For the rim brake specific EP30 design, we of course prioritize the heat dissipation and braking performance at the brake track. Braking is excellent with the HiFi Stellar carbon brake pads, as well as other popular aftermarket carbon pads. But the EP30 SLs aren't about slowing down; they're about going fast!

More Info

Want to talk about responsiveness? The light weight carbon rims will spin up to speed super quickly. The EP30 SL are ideal for general road racing and riding; hill climbs; and gravel/cyclocross. The jam up climbs and fly on the flats. The extremely high-grade carbon fiber we use is stiff for accelerations but is also good at dampening bumps and chatter. The shallower profile coupled with our Anti-Flutter technology and toroidal rim shape mean that crosswinds won't push you around, and that they're even faster at a larger range of yaw angles.

Road, Cyclocross, Gravel Ready

Our EP30 SL Anti-Flutter non-disc wheel sets spin on the latest iteration of our Fidelity R36SL straight pull hubs, which use a 4-pawl system engaging with a 36-tooth ring. The R36SL hubs offer quick and reliable engagement, light weight, and dependability. They're also easy to service when the need arises, with bearings that are easy to access and no proprietary tools required. The EP30 SL rim depth is ideal to provide quick acceleration with some aerodynamic advantage, but without the extra bulk of a deeper profile. We lace up our EP30 SLs with top-tier Sapim bladed spokes for their ideal blend of lightweight, aerodynamics, high strength, and sublime ride quality.
