We have taken a huge amount of time it seems to get our new K1-Disc ready to roll. Several years in fact and we've resisted all attempts to rush it. Something we're very proud of!
Moreover, It's been exhaustively tested in prototype guise at several World and European Champs by our Elite Team GB / K1 Team riders and at last we are ready. More recently Ben Price of Team K1 won the National Duathlon Championships riding our DISC & 80c combo.
Backed up by our 20 years of know-how when it comes to carbon wheels and racing them we feel we have something very exciting to offer our customers!
It's extremely aero of course - track test data to follow . (Aero tested by Team K1's Ben Price with Wattshop at Derby Velodrome.)
We say "of course" as frankly pretty much every modern disc is super aero! We're always a little shocked how many brands claim their disc to be ......... the fastest-in-the-world!
So what's so great about our disc then, is the next and obvious question?
Well we think it's in real-world testing and moreover in real-world riding that Kinetic-One really stands out.
Firstly - The K1-Disc is both clincher and tubeless ready and is one of only a very very few discs to have this attribute. (Beware those increasingly common ‘disc’ wheels you see, where its a basic spoked road wheel with a carbon sheet glued either side of the rim.... we often wonder what happens if you pop a spoke!
PLEASE NOTE: we recommend Schwalbe Pro Tubeless/clincher, Conti GP5000 clincher or Hutchinson Fusion Tubeless 25-28mm tyres with this disc.
Secondly - we've decided to buck the "super-wide" disc fad and have kept our disc at what we think is a super-sensible 26mm wide at the brake track. This is simply so that it fits people's bikes! So many modern aero bikes have fit issues with the new generation of what we think of as "crazy-wide” wheels to be applied to rim-brake bikes. ; be they 28 or even 29mm wide! We don't dispute that these can be very fast but what if they don't allow your rear aero brake to work - or worse still - rub your frame on cornering or climbing!
Third: It features our highest ever temperature braking surfaces - 230 degrees celcius. Far more than you’ll ever need - but nice to know it’s there! And brake blocks are included too.
Fourth: We offer the reassurance of a 3 year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship to the purchaser of a K1-Disc. Please do note that as your disc is specially built to order, specifically for you - your order cannot be cancelled part way through if you change your mind.
