FEATURING OUR SIGNATURE "GRAPHITE" MATTE ANODISED RIM. ALL DARK GREY - INCLUDING BRAKING SURFACE.
THIS IS OUR HARDEST EVER ANODISED FINISH. IT IS ACHIEVED USING THE REVOLUTIONARY “PEO” METHOD. PLASMA ELECTROLYTIC OXIDATION IS AN AEROSPACE APPLICATION THAT OFFERS UNPARALELLED RESILIENCE. WE’VE BEEN BUILDING THESE WHEELS FOR 4 YEARS NOW AND LOVE THEM. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT PEO click here
INTENDED USE: Superlight, new style slightly wider rimmed version of our best selling "all purpose" superlight wheelset.
Tough enough for the hilliest and roughest of Sportives, Fast-accelerating enough for the busiest of bunch races and aero enough to ensure that you gain every possible watt of drag reduction. Several build options available - some lighter, some tougher and some both!
Beautifully finished, very light, superbly strong and are packed full of the latest tech.
Your wheels will be handbuilt to order here in the uk by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is 4-7 days!
Utilising top end spokes (PSR 1422 AERO BLADE or SAPIM CXRAY) and top-end materials on rims and hubs means we can get weights down to a very small number.
We also offer lots of upgrade options: For example, the SUPERAEROLITE CXRAY/Bitex SL hub version at 1335 GRAMS a pair (undecaled)
Features a superb new rim profile compatible with clincher tyres from 23c to 28c. Slightly wider rims are the future of road wheels. They enable seamless tyre interfaces for max aero gain, they allow for wider tyres for shorter 'contact patch' and less rolling resistance. And to top it all - they are tremendously comfortable - easing the lower back in the final miles of those long long rides.
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.
The 21.8mm wide rim has fabulous cross-sectional strength whilst maintaining a tiny weight. It represents the very apex of the latest developments in the understanding of how to balance forces and tensions in a wheel. It's a joy to be able to partner these rims with CX-Ray spokes (always the peloton pro's choice) with the beautifully made Bitex hubs, with Japanese ezo bearings.
