2019 Kinetic-One K1-85/85UC Full Carbon Clincher wheelset


Product information

​​​​​​​IN STOCK


INTENDED USE: This wheelset is ideal for both shorter and longer Time Trials and Triathlons. Where absolute top-end speed and aerodynamics are king. This is the brand new, full carbon clincher (not tubeless) version of our 80c/80c carbon-alloy wheelset. 

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! (A little longer at peak times).



The 85/85UC  deep wheelset is superbly aero, beautifully balanced, and reassuringly well constructed by hand here in the UK.

The 85mm semi-toroidal front wheel is both superbly aerodynamic and extremely light.(this is the advantage that full carbon offers) The rim shape gives it superb cross-wind handling characteristics too.

Please be aware that this is our deepest front wheel and should not be used by novices or in very windy conditions. Deep section front wheels are steering wheels so need good solid bike handling skills. If you like the look of this wheelset but are unsure about the front wheel depth - then go for our K1-55/85UC instead

This is coupled with our ultra-deep rear 85mm deep rear - to minimise drag and give you every watt of power - and at superbly low weight. As little as 1895 grams a PAIR  in its lightest build option.

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 23-24mm wide 85/85UC's 's are built around our modern "semi U" shaped structural carbon semi-toroidal aero rim. designed to run best with 25c to 40c wide tyres but will also run 23c tyres fine).  The rim is designed to cut through the air going forward, whilst maintaining a superb lateral integrity to cross-winds across a full range of wind "yaw" angles.  

In terms of rim width we think we've really hit the sweet spot at 23-24mm wide. We carefully explored all of the many possible widths that aero wheels are being developed in. We developed and continually honed our own testing protocols to this effect - and critically we looked at a whole raft of practical issues too that many rim makers simply overlook. For example frame spacing: Yes its possible to go wider than 23-24mm but at what point do wheels begin to compromise the frame. The last thing you want is to find that your carbon wheels rub your frame the moment you get out of the saddle! 23-24mm wide is in our view the best blend of performance and practical usability in our experience.

PLEASE NOTE: if you have a narrow clearance frame - we can special order in some 20mm wide rims for you and we do find that's the only solution for users of many brands of bikes (Notably Scotts for example!)

I have now bought 2 sets of aero wheels from KineticOne now, first a set of 50mm road carbon wheels and more recently a set of 80mm carbon wheels. Both sets perform brilliantly, and Andy''s service has been outstanding. When I managed to melt off the rim tape on the road wheels (nothing to do with the quality of the wheels. A combination of badly adjusted brakes touching the tyre, and me dragging the brakes on a 14k alpine descent did them in) he replaced the rim tape, safety checked, and shipped the wheels back at no extra cost. Don''t believe I have received better service anywhere else. Chapeau!
