INTENDED USE: Our latest 700c WIDE disc brake TRAIL/OFF-ROAD/TARMAC multi-functional wheelset. Balancing superb strength with superlative aerodynamics it's Equally at home on road or off, our new wider rim profile takes clincher and tubeless tyres 28c right through to 60c.
ARRIVES FEB 2020
Light and tough enough for the hilliest and roughest of Sportives, Cyclocross courses and gravel tracks. And fast-accelerating enough for racing, and aero enough to ensure that you gain every possible watt of drag reduction. These are our mid-range PERFORMANCE DISC wheelset.
Our ultra-modern, full U-Shaped 33mm deep circumferential matte black rims are laced to a choice of superb sealed bearing hubs with 28/28 high-end Sapim Race or PSR Aero spokes. (Race spokes are for pure strength and the PSR's for max strength/speed).
Whether you’re riding towpaths, hillpaths, forest trails, or flat out sportives or cross this wheelset will enable you to ride fast, for many years, over varying terrain. It’s all about the combination of aerodynamic profile, superbly light / strong components coupled with the quality and robustness of build that only handbuilt wheels can offer.
Your wheels will be hand built to order here in the UK by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is most often 7-11 days. (current build times are shown at checkout).
It's an incredibly fast-moving time for road disc systems at the moment with lots of competing standards for Axle types and frame fitting methods and for rotor fastening.
These wheel are totally versatile and ready to work all the modern variants that different brands are working to.
Handbuilt to order and available for the whole wide range of modern axle and rotor fitment systems. Whatever your frame needs we can configure these wheels to your bike. And even if you change your bike - the hubs are all simply convertible to all the other axles standards! We think that's massively important as it future-proofs your wheels! (no one wants to be left with the betamax of hub types and obsolete wheels!)
Technical details below.
Or just drop us a line If you don't know what system your bike has (you won't be alone - many people very understandably don't know, they just want to ride their bike after all!)
You can run these as conventional clincher wheels or you can set them up as Tubeless. Tubeless wheels can be run at lower pressure than clinchers and this helps provide a more comfortable ride and it also eliminates the possibility of pinch flat punctures (caused from hitting potholes etc.) It's also the case that by filling the tubeless tyre with a sealant such as STANS you can pretty much avoid all punctures forever more - even if you ride over glass or a nail sticks right through your tyre. Just remove it and the tyre will reseal around it!!!
We recommend Hutchinson and Continental Gp5000 Tubeless tyres. But even if you're unsure about whether to go tubeless just yet - worry not - you can run these wheels with inner tubes and clincher tyres in the traditional way!
If you'd like the advantage that superlight wheels give you - but don't want to hand over the £700 or so that the Ksyrium Pro DISC wheelset will set you back, then these wheels at a little more than half the price and only a tad more weight may be what you are looking for. Handmade by us in our workshop in Gloucestershire, and utilising top quality build components.
