INTENDED USE: Sportives, Bunch races and Triathlons (from Sprint to IRONMAN distance.) This is the 'SUPERLIGHT' K1-45SL Deep Alloy wheelset.
Available in weight options as low as 1698 grams per pair! - which is stunningly light for a deep alloy wheelset. They also feature our superb and rather beautiful full matt black ‘graphite’ alloy rims.
RECOMMENDED BUILDS: The AeroFlow model - complete with ultra-low drag MICHE hubs: the lowest rolling resistance of any hub set! Or for the lightest build go for the Superaerolight version Learn more>>>
THE STUNNING MATT BLACK FINISH IS CHEMICALLY BONDED TO THE RIM USING AN AEROSPACE APPLICATION THAT OFFERS EXCELLENT RESILIENCE. WE’VE BEEN BUILDING/IMPROVING THESE WHEELS FOR 5 YEARS NOW AND LOVE THEM.
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 8-12 days. (current build times are shown at checkout).
This is the new Limited edition version of our best selling alloy deep section wheelset! A high-end ALLOY aero wheelset for riders who want all the aero benefit and lightness of carbon - but want to stick with a more robust material.
We offer various upgrades to spokes and hubs. Contact us if you’re not sure what’s best for you! Upgrades can help you get lighter, get even more aero (Bitex hubs) or add to the lifetime of your wheels. (Miche hubs).
We also offer 3 spoke count options on this model. 20/24 is fine for most riders up to around the 100kg mark. But for heavier riders (or those who are tough on their wheels!) we offer a 24/28 spoke super-strong option. For very light riders we also have a 20/20 version.
The use of such fabulous components enables us to produce a true "pro-level" multi-functional aero wheelset, at a reachable price point. And of course they are hand-built in Gloucestershire!!
Offered With Full 2 Year Warranty Plus A 14 Day "No Quibble Returns Policy" - If You're Not In Love With These Wheels The Moment You Get Them Just Send Them Back For A Refund Any Time Within 14 Days Of Receipt.
This wheel has a very specific place in our range (and in our hearts!). A super deep-section lightweight alloy wheel is the perfect "do-everything-wheelset" for multi-gradient triathlons, time trials and even sportives. Designed to run best with 25mm or 23mm tyres.
Light enough and comfortable enough to get you up those hills in good shape, (with silky smooth bearings to help even more), and aero enough to gift you free-speed on the flats and the downhills. At the same time these wheels have an additional benefit compared to carbon wheels: Their durability and strength.

Just bought some of these - They will be replacing a pair of K1 wheels that I purchased from you just over 10 years ago (June 2009) and I have to say that they've been absolutely faultless. At the time a few hundred seemed a lot to pay for a set of wheels but they've covered well over 10,000 miles on some challenging road surfaces and haven't skipped a beat until recently when the freehub began to slip. A very shrewd investment and a testament to Kinetic One quality!
Loved the colour scheme of the decals from the first moment I saw them, so decided to take a chance on other reviews. Happy to say that the reviews I read were good and true. The wheels are very well built and to an extremely high quality! They are slightly heavy compared with similar on the market at this price, but, with the aero rim, the nice free wheeling hub, the ride is still fantastic! I love these wheels...they are fast, smooth and very pretty.
Excellent value for money, quality and looks. The wheels roll nicely, feel very firm and strong with no hint of flex and do look at least twice the price thanks to the modest graphics and bladed spokes. Would recommend them as TT, road or training wheels.
I've been running my K1 wheels since September 2014 for both long weekend rides and the daily commute. They still look as good as new and are rolling perfectly. The wheels are proving to be bomb proof as advertised, built reassuringly well, they remain tight and stiff as the day they arrived. Add the stunningly good looks and you have a fantastically priced set of top quality wheels. So, take the great experience I have had so far with these wheels and add the flawless service Kinetic-One provided in processing my order and delivering (updates by email all the way including the name of the delivery driver and the name of my neighbour who took the delivery as I was out!) and your left with one option.
