I’m wondering if the Epic 5.6 Wheelset (non-disc) is UCI Approved or not. I’ve been seeing conflicting information. On the main page for the wheelset (https://www.tokyowheel.com/products/epic-5-6-carbon-clincher-wheelset), there’s a graphic that implies it is approved, but I’ve seen several forum posts (by James) that state otherwise. Many of these forum posts are quite recent.
I’m aware that the company is only a few years old, and things are probably moving very quickly on things like this, so it’s certainly possible that the new 2016/2017 model of the wheelset is UCI Approved while older models are not.
While we’re on the subject, how often and when is the product line for Tokyo Wheels updated? I’m interested in buying a pair of the 5.6 Clinchers and would like to buy the newest model possible. When do the 2017 or 2018 models drop, so to speak?
