£150 OFF CLEARANCE: 2023 Kinetic-One K1 - 42TL Alloy Road Disc Brake Wheelset
INTENDED USE: Road, Sportives, TT's and Tri's. This is our TARMAC, GRAVEL, CYCLOCROSS FOCUSSED deep section alloy road disc wheelset for clincher/tubeless tyres - Super-aero and super tough.
Now in its 4th year of evolution - we are sure this is the worlds only fully clincher/tubeless compatible deep-section 700c alloy disc wheelset. With a superlative 42mm deep rim, designed by Andy Morgan here in the UK and hand-made for us by craftsmen in southern Italy - it now has a stunning matt black hard-carbon anodised finish. Meaning it looks carbon but has the strength and pricepoint you would associate with alloys. So you really can have it all!!
Your wheels will be hand built to order in the UK. (current build times are 14-21 days).
Specced with Italian Miche DX hubs as a very reliable standard version.
Or upgrade for a few pounds to our superb SUPERAEROLIGHT build with Bitex hubs and super light PSR aerospokes, tipping the scales at a modest 1790 grams It is extremely light for a 24mm wide, fully 'deep-section' alloy wheelset.
Or upgrade to Bitex’s lightest hubs and world-leading SAPIM CXRAY spokes to save another 45 grams and further enhance the aerodynamics.
In short: It looks like carbon, has the same aero-profile as deep-section carbon, weighs very similar to carbon - and rides more like carbon than any alloy wheel weve ever made. It is also tough as they come. It is also the only seriously deep alloy to be tubeless and clincher compatible..... AND .. Its half the price of carbon!
Light and tough enough for the hilliest and roughest of Sportives, And fast-accelerating enough for racing, and of course, aero enough to ensure that you gain every possible watt of drag reduction.
The k1-42TL AeroDisc is built around our class leading deep aero alloy rim, with it's pure speed profiling and its stunning "Hard-Carbon Anodised" finish.
The rim has an external width of 24mm and an internal width of 18.6mm - making it perfectly optimised for 23-40mm wide tyres - in terms of both performance and seamless aerodynamics.
We marry the rims to the hubs via our own K1 Aero spokes. Or you can upgrade to PSR 1422 class leading spokes - for aero gain and weight-saving.
We offer a choice of superb hubs. These are the fantastically light and reliable Taiwanese Bitex hubs.
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.
The K1-42TL AERO DISC'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!)
Technical details below.
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 quality Miche, Bitex 6-Drive hubs (for both Centerlock and 6-bolt rotor builds). Weights below for c/lock. Add approx 100 grams for 6-bolt.
Hand built in Gloucestershire, and utilising top quality build components. We carry spare hubs, bearings, and should you ever need one - spare spokes!
