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. When specced with the wonderfully aero and light PSR AERO spokes .... They come in AT 1450grams
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 40c 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 K1-42UC'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 the fabulous - Miche and Bitex 6-drive hubs. Light, fast pickup, robust, durable, easy to work on ... and at great prices. That's a lot to love"

I was immediately taken by how light these wheels are. I mean even in the box. I struggled with tubeless - but learned a lot!
The wheels are excellent. 1000 miles plus now. My bike (Cannondale Synapse) is like a new machine. Thank you.
