THIS IS THE HIGHER SPEC PARTNER TO OUR STANDARD 50UC FULL CARBON WHEELS. See Here

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.

Not only does this make for stronger, longer lasting wheels - but also the nature of the "winding process"  facilitates another new technology that massively increases braking capability - especially at high temperatures.  

 

        



The filament winding process enables the injection of a patented ultra heat resistant resin - directly into the carbon filaments - whilst the rim is built. This means the rim's braking surface is fully impregnated with resin during manufacture - rather than a braking surface being added to the surface of the rim post-production.

This makes for better braking - especially on long hot descents. These rims have their braking performance tested up to 250 degrees celcius.  This is 40 degrees higher than our previous rims - and as high as any top-end rims on the market.




Handbuilt by Andy Morgan in the K1 workshop in Gloucestershire. We combine traditional wheel-building techniques with cutting edge technology. And the world of carbon wheel-tech moves endlessly forward! Exciting times!

YOU CAN RUN THESE WHEELS WITH CLINCHERS OR WITH TUBELESS TYRES: IF YOU WANT US TO SUPPLY AND FIT NEW GENERATION TUBELESS TYRES WE CAN DO THIS FOR £133 (Includes tyres/tapes/sealant/valves and extenders - so that you're ready to ride them straight out of the box.


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. Will run 23c tyres also.

The rim width debate will continue to rage and rage. What with rims now available from 19 mm right through to 28mm wide. We've decided to go straight down the middle and our rims are Significantly wider than old-school rims but not crazy wide. We think that's the best place to be!

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.
