Introducing what we are sure is the worlds first fully clincher/tubeless compatible deep-section alloy disc wheelset. With a superlative rim designed here in the UK and hand-made for us in Loria Northern Italy - this has been several years in development. (we also have the rim brake equivalent in our alloy's section!)
It may also be the world's fastest Alloy rim.... we should wait till we've tunnel tested it against the Aforce AL33 |(the current acknowledged fastest rim .. but early track tests conducted by ourselves are pretty clear to us! (It does need verifying of course.. just very excited .. we must be more patient!)
INTENDED USE: Road , Sportives, TT's and Tri's. This is our mid-range TARMAC/GRAVEL FOCUSSED deep section alloy road disc wheelset for clincher tyres - Super-aero, tough and a beautiful matt black finish.
In short: It looks like carbon, has the same aero-profile as deep-section carbon, weighs very similar to carbon - and rides more like carbon than any alloy wheel we’ve ever made. It is also tough as they come. It is also the only seriously deep alloy to be tubeless and clincher compatible..... AND .. It’s half the price of carbon!
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).
THIS IS OUR BRAND NEW MID-RANGE, 42mm Deep, DISC SPECIFIC AERO wheelset. Designed simply to bring pure aero benefit to your Disc equipped bike.
Light and tough enough for the hilliest and roughest of Sportives, And fast-accelerating enough for racing, and of course, aero enough to ensure that you gain every possible watt of drag reduction.
The k1-42TL AeroDisc is built around our class leading deep aero alloy rim, with it's pure speed profiling and its stunning "Graphite" finish.
The rim has an external width of 24mm and an internal width of 18.6mm - making it perfectly optimised for 25c/28c/32c tyres in terms of both performance and seamless aerodynamics.
We marry the rims to the hubs via top end Belgian SAPIM spokes, always the pro's choice! You can elect to have Sapim Race spokes for strength or upgrade to Sapim CX-Ray spokes for absolute aero gain. The CX-Ray is still the most aero spoke on the market and about the toughest spoke available too.
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
The K1-42TL AERO DISC's are handbuilt to order and are 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!)
AXLES : We can configure your wheel axles to meet your frame requirements. So whether you have standard quick release or the more modern "thru-axle" setup, or whether you have 135mm or 142 mm rear spacing, we can supply them ready-to-roll!
ROTOR FITMENT : We use Bitex 6-Drive and DTSwiss hubs (for Centerlock and 6-bolt rotor builds).
Hand built in Gloucestershire, and utilising top quality build components. We carry spare hubs, bearings, and should you ever need one - spare spokes!
