INTENDED USE: Sportives, Bunch races and Triathlons (from Sprint to IRONMAN distance.) This is the 2018 K1-45SL Superlite Alloy wheelset with superb and rather beautiful full black ‘graphite’ (anodised alloy) rims.
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
Your wheels will be handbuilt to order here in the UK by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is normally 4-7 days!
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.
Standard setup is with our superb Italian sealed bearing Ambrosio hubs and high end Belgian Sapim RACE black spokes or Aero and light PSR black spokes. (Choose "PSR1422 Aero" for aero/lightness or choose "Race" for strength).
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 or add to the lifetime of your wheels.
We also offer 2 spoke count options on this model. 20/24 is fine for most riders up to around the 95 kg mark. But for heavier riders (or those who are tough on their wheels!) we offer a 24/28 spoke super-strong option.
The use of such wonderful components enables us to produce a true "pro-level" multi-functional aero wheelset, at a reachable price point. And Handbuilt 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.
