INTENDED USE: Our ULTIMATE LIGHTWEIGHT / SUPERTOUGH /AERO, multi-use, deep carbon FILAMENT-WOUND 700c ROAD DISC BRAKE wheelset.
At a maximal 29.4mm 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.
Our objective for the 46FW wheelset was simple and clear: To achieve a 'strength-to-weight-to-aero' ratio as high as current technologies will allow.
Weighing in from as little as 1430 grams, they are rated for riders up to 125kg. That’s very light and strong for a 29.4mm wide, (28mm at rim edge), 44mm deep, fully tubeless/clincher compatible wheelset.
Our premium full-carbon wheelset utilises patented “filament-wound”, robotic-built, ultra-high temperature K1-48FW 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.
This extends into the quality control stages where each and every rim is X-Rayed to ensure 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 off road too!
Rated to an amazing 125 Kg its tough enough even for cyclocross. They are 2-way fit for clincher tyres and will also take the new generation tubeless tyres.
Your wheels will be Handbuilt to order here in the uk by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is normally 7-11 days! (Exact current build times are shown at checkout).
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.
This is the newest of our K1 carbon wheelsets. At 29mm 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 Miche hubs and PSR spokes .... They come in at 1530 grams.
Or, for only a few pounds more upgrade to the fabulous BITEX futureproofed hubs with PSR aero spokes get weights down to a tiny 1470 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 .
They 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 in both Centerlock and 6-Bolt flavours.

Brought these last year but not had them on the bike over winter. Have now done around 300 miles and have to say they are fantastic(which is why they are now on my new bike)for the price and customer service you can't go wrong. 100% reccomend these wheels to anyone.
Review: Very pleased. Strong, stiff, fast - all I need. 1000 km under my belt with them now.
Review By Gary from Mallorca
Extremely impressed with how true these wheels have been through full winter training..clean trainer every 3rd day of salt/grime..and they still look smart..bombproof !
Review: I bought my bike from Andy 10 years ago. 1000s of miles later it is still going strong and I love it. So when my old rims became paper thin, there was only one place I was ever going to go to buy replacement wheels.
But these aren't just any old wheels; I've been hitting PB after PB after PB. They hum beautifully and pull me along the flats, they are lighter and quicker up the hills and whistle sweetly in a cross-wind.
And they look fantastic too.
