INTENDED USE: Our Ultimate SPORTIVE disc-brake wheelset. Combining all the knowledge and experience we've built up over the past 20 years. The 46's combine low weights, with maximal aero gains, married to the latest rim profiles (to get the most from modern tyre systems). And on top of all this: the FILAMENT-WOUND construction makes them prodigiously strong. Rated in fact to 125kg.
At 27.7mm wide they are slightly wider than last years model, are marginally lighter, and are equally at home on TARMAC, TRAIL and CYCLOCROSS.
We designed them specifically to get the best out of the new generation of clincher/tubeless tyres. Optimised for road tyres from 25mm-32mm they are also suitable for gravel/cross tyres from 32mm right through to 60mm.
Our objective for the 46FW was simple and clear. To achieve a 'strength-to-weight-to-aero' ratio as high as current technologies will allow.
Weighing in from as little as 1430 grams, they are rated for riders up to 125kg!
Our premium full-carbon wheelset utilises patented “filament-wound”, robotic-built, ultra-high temperature K1-46FW rims.
Sounds fancy: Filament winding technology is an automated method which has revolutionised rim consistency in the manufacture of full carbon wheels. Each rim is made from single carbon filaments precisely wound into shape - with no joints or junctions - this enables a uniformity and strength that builds into the roundest and most balanced wheels possible.
This extends into the quality control stages where each and every rim is X-Rayed to ensure uniformity and compliance.
Built with super-strong/light/aero PSR spokes and excellent Bitex and DTSwiss hubs.
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 is the newest of our K1 carbon wheelsets. At 27.7mm wide, with a full carbon u-shaped rim profile - it is aimed at those riders who prefer an ultra-modern wider rimmed wheelset. When specced with the wonderfully aero and light PSR1422 spokes as standard .... They come in at 1460 grams - or upgrade to the ultimate DT240s hubs and CXRAY SPOKES and get weights down to 1420 Grams a PAIR!! And they are also "tubeless ready"!
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.
The K1-46FW’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!)
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!
HUBS : We use Miche (ultra low drag hubs) and Bitex 6-drive hubs. WE NOW ALSO OFFER THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE HUBS: The DTSwiss 240 series in both Centerlock and 6-Bolt flavours.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL HUB OPTIONS ARE SHOWN AS CENTERLOCK - WE CAN SUPPLY ALL OUR HUBS IN 6-BOLT FITTING TOO.
