INTENDED USE: Our latest 700c disc brake TARMAC/TRAIL multi-functional wheelset. Balancing superb strength, low weight, with superlative aerodynamics. Equally at home on road or gravel: Our new slightly wider rim profile is designed for the new generation of clincher and tubeless tyres.
Your wheels will be hand built by us here at K1 in Gloucestershire! Current build times are shown at the top of this page).
Light and tough enough for the hilliest and roughest of Sportives, Cyclocross courses and gravel tracks. And fast-accelerating enough for racing, and aero enough to ensure that you gain every possible watt of drag reduction.
Our ultra-modern, full U-Shaped 33mm deep circumferential matte black rims are laced to a choice of superb sealed bearing hubs with 28/28 high-end PSR Aero spokes for max strength/speed).
Whether you’re riding sportives or towpaths, hillpaths or even racing cross, this wheelset will enable you to ride fast, for many years, over varying terrain. It’s all about the combination of aerodynamic profile, superbly light / strong components coupled with the quality and robustness of build that only handbuilt wheels can offer. We use only the highest quality components right down to items as tiny (but nevertheless still critical!) as the spoke nipples.
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.
Handbuilt to order and 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!)
You can run these as conventional clincher wheels or you can set them up as Tubeless. Tubeless wheels can be run at lower pressure than clinchers and this helps provide a more comfortable ride and it also eliminates the possibility of pinch flat punctures (caused from hitting potholes etc.) It's also the case that by filling the tubeless tyre with a sealant such as STANS you can pretty much avoid all punctures forever more - even if you ride over glass or a nail sticks right through your tyre. Just remove it and the tyre will reseal around it!!!
We recommend Hutchinson Tubeless tyres. But even if you're unsure about whether to go tubeless just yet - worry not - you can run these wheels with inner tubes and clincher tyres in the traditional way!
