This is the newest of our K1 carbon wheelsets. At 23-24mm wide, with a full carbon u-shaped rim profile - it is aimed at those riders who prefer an ultra-modern wider rimmed wheelset (but not too wide!). The handling characteristics and strength of modern U rims is superb - even in pretty serious crosswinds - especially when compared to the V-rims of only a few years ago.
NOTE: These wheels are ideal for UK roads and descents in all but the hottest weathers. If you are intending to race very long descents in hot weathers (such as continental summer sportives or just want a more familiar braking feel - you may want to look at our full-carbon filament-wound wheels. All full carbon rim-brake wheels (from all brands) do need more considered "pulsed" braking on long hot descents to prevent rims from heating too much (Our full-carbon filament-wound rims have amongst the highest temperature-resistant rim tech available!). Keep it safe and keep it simple: If you are in any doubt in unfamiliar conditions - Use your Alloys that day. We also advise avoiding latex inner-tubes in unusually hot conditions and upgrading brake-blocks to SwissStop Black Prince.
The technology has come such a long way in recent years that most riders are now fine with full-carbons, and they are lighter of course. We just like to give our customers all the facts . In fact we have never had a single rim issue on any our carbon wheels - we think this is because we are very straight with people about their relative advantages and disadvantages!
