INTENDED USE: Our ULTIMATE LIGHTWEIGHT / SUPERTOUGH 700c multi-use carbon FILAMENT-WOUND DISC wheelset. At a maximal 29.4 mm wide with superb aero characteristics married to superlative strength and handling - they are equally home on TARMAC, TRAIL and CYCLOCROSS. We designed them specifically to get the best out of the new generation of 28c to 40c-plus multi-terrain clincher/tubeless tyres.
Using the very latest filament-winding carbon lay-up processes - This DISC wheelset combines the lightest weight and highest strength that current technologies will allow - weighing in from as low as 1385 grams it is 29.4mm wide, 28mm at rim edge, 34mm deep and is fully tubeless compatible! Rated to a superb 120Kg its tough enough even for cyclocross.
Our premium full-carbon wheelset utilises patented “filament-wound”, robotic-built, ultra-high temperature rims.
Sounds fancy: Filament winding technology is an automated method which has revolutionised rim consistency in the manufacture of full carbon wheels. Made from a single carbon filament - the manufacturing process enables precise control of every step - resulting in the roundest, strongest, lightest wheel combinations.
This level of precision and care extends throughout the entire quality control process - with each and every rim X-Rayed for structural 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 seriously off road too!
Built with super strong/light PSR aero spokes and excellent Bitex and DTSwiss disc hubs. They are 2-way fit for clincher tyres and will also take the new generation tubeless tyres.
Offered With Full 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, 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 CXRAY spokes .... They come in AT 1430grams - or upgrade to the ultimate Dt240s hubs and get weights down to 1395 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. Ideal for tyres from 28c right up to 60c 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 K1-34FW'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!
HUBS: We use Miche (ultra low drag hubs), Bitex 6-drive hubs. WE NOW ALSO OFFER THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE HUBS; The DTSwiss 240 series.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL HUB OPTIONS ARE SHOWN AS CENTERLOCK - WE CAN SUPPLY ALL OUR HUBS IN 6-BOLT FITTING TOO.

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.
