INTENDED USE: Our ULTIMATE AERO/LIGHTWEIGHT / SUPERTOUGH multi-use, deep carbon FILAMENT-WOUND ROAD DISC BRAKE wheelset.
Our objective of the 55FW was simple and clear. To produce our fastest general road/sportive/tri disc wheelset.
Balancing the superb aerodynamics associated with our 55mm deep semi-u rims with a weight that would be well specced for hilly riding - whilst still being rated for riders up to 120kg.
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.
It is ideal for General road riding including sportives and bunch racing or it’s tough enough to take off road too!
Rated to an amazing 120 Kg its tough enough even for cyclocross.
Built with super-strong/light PSR AERO spokes and excellent Bitex 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.
At 24mm wide, with a full carbon u-shaped rim profile - it is aimed at those riders who prefer an ultra-modern ‘max aero’ wheelset. When specced with the wonderfully aero and light PSR AERO spokes as standard .... They come in at only 1645 grams.
The new generation rims are perfectly suited to disc-brake riding. They are very strong, yet very light and very forgiving to ride. Optimised for 25c tyres - they will also take tyres right up to 32c. 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.
