The new generation wide rims are perfectly suited to disc-brake riding. They are very strong, yet very light and very forgiving to ride. Ideal for tyres from 25c right up to 30c and beyond. Perfect for running tyres at lower pressure and arguably more aerodynamic and faster rolling than traditional hoops!
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 K1-55UC'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!
ROTOR / HUB FITMENT : We use Bitex 6-drive hubs (for 6-bolt rotor and Centerlock builds). WE NOW ALSO OFFER THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE HUBS. The DTSwiss 350 and 240 series in both Centerlock and 6-Bolt flavours.

After looking for several months for a set of carbon aero tubeless wheels I finally decided to give Andy a call. Very professional & knowledgable I decided to order a set with CXray spokes & bitex centre lock. When you think a set of Mavic’s or Zipp of similar speck is nearly double the price it’s a no brainier. Arrived well packaged. After riding several hundred miles I’m really pleased & best of my bike looks great & had lots of compliments

I gained 1 mile extra per 30 minutes of riding. I am still new to the sport only 450ish miles on the new bike. The ride is so amazing its like riding on cotton. I also had to adjust the seat again, but overall 8.92 miles in 30 minutes. That was with a pretty stiff 20ish mile an hour head wind a good part of the ride. Will do a few shots of scenery of where I ride this weekend and thanks so much for the rims, they are excuse the language but f*****g amazing as far as softness, the cross winds do move the bike when its breezy for sure, the rolling resistance @ 60 lbs is the sweet spot at least for me. I think I could run 55, but will stay at 60 for the time. I have posted you all over facebook and I have a few overseas friends who might order.

What a fantastic set of wheels. Built with (my own) Hope hubs which are my go to hubs for MTB and road. The build quality and finish is exceptional and the service I had deciding on the build was expertly given. They finish off the look and performance of my Kinesis gf-ti build and I couldn't be more pleased.

Can't fault Andy's service. After a good deal of online research, I dropped Andy a line and within 30mins he called me to discuss. He then did a load of research on my bike and independently identified that the manufacturer had published an inaccurate measurement, and made allowances for this in the build. Had he not done this due diligence (or I had chosen an off the peg set from elsewhere) I'd have bought wheels that didn't fit. I went for six bolt Bitex hubs and CXRay spokes. They're light, spin beautifully (a genuine, noticeable gain on downhills and flats), stiff in the climbs, great value and look the business. Highly recommended.
