INTENDED USEOur ULTIMATE Max speed, max aerodynamic, carbon FILAMENT-WOUND, 700c, ROAD DISC BRAKE wheelset. Aimed primarily at road riders using tyres up to 28c.

Weighing in from as little as 1495grams, they are rated for riders up to 125kg. That’s very light and strong for a 26mm wide (19mm internal), fully tubeless/clincher compatible wheelset.

Our premium full-carbon wheelset utilises patented “filament-wound”, robotic-built, ultra-high temperature K1-55FW 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 a single carbon filament 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.

It is ideal for General road riding including sportives and bunch racing or it’s tough enough and wide enough to take off road too!  

Rated to a superb 125 Kg its tough enough even for cyclocross.


Built with super-strong/light Sapim spokes and excellent Bitex and DTSwiss hubs. They are 2-way fit for clincher tyres and will also take the new generation tubeless tyres.

Your wheels will be Handbuilt to order here in the uk by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is normally 7-11 days! (Exact current build times are shown at checkout).


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 26mm wide, with a full carbon u-shaped rim profile - it is aimed at those riders who prefer an ultra-modern wider rimmed wheelset. (It is 2mm narrower than oor other filament wound road disc rims. This is because of the max aero focus).

When specced with the wonderfully aero and light PSR1422 spokes as standard .... They come in AT 1540 grams - or upgrade to the ultimate DT240s hubs and CXRAY SPOKES and get weights down to 1490 Grams a PAIR!! And they are also "tubeless ready"!


The new generation wide rims are perfectly suited to disc-brake riding. They are very strong, yet very light and very forgiving to ride.  Aimed primarily at road riders using 25c to 28c tyres. Though it will take tyres up to 48c 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 K1-55FW’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 l. 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.
