INTENDED USE: Our ULTIMATE LIGHTWEIGHT 700c carbon FILAMENT-WOUND DISC wheelset. At 27.7 mm wide they are slightly wider than last years model, and weigh from as little as 1385 grams, with superb aero characteristics married to superlative strength and handling - they are our lightweight climbers disc wheelset.
The filament wound construction also confers great strength - meaning these wheel are equally home on TARMAC, TRAIL and CYCLOCROSS. Optimised for road tyres in the 25-32mm range, we designed them specifically to get the best out of the new generation of clincher/tubeless tyres. Should you choose to venture onto trails/gravel they will take tyres to to 50mm and beyond.
Using the very latest filament-winding carbon lay-up processes - This DISC wheelset combines the lightest weight and highest strength that current technologies will allow - Rated to a superb 120Kg its tough enough even for cyclocross.
Our premium full-carbon wheelset utilises patented “filament-wound”, robotic-built, ultra-high temperature rims.
Sounds fancy: Filament winding technology is an automated method which has revolutionised rim consistency in the manufacture of full carbon wheels. Made from single carbon filaments - the manufacturing process enables precise control of every step - resulting in the roundest, strongest, lightest wheel combinations.
This level of precision and care extends throughout the entire quality control process - with each and every rim X-Rayed for structural uniformity and compliance.
Built with super strong/light PSR aero spokes and excellent Bitex and DTSwiss disc hubs. 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. (Current build times are shown above).

This is the newest of our K1 carbon wheelsets, 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 the wonderfully aero and light CXRAY spokes and Bitex hubs .... They come in at 1430grams. And they are also "tubeless ready"!
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 K1-34FW'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!
HUBS : We use the superb Bitex 6-drive hubs. WE NOW ALSO OFFER THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE HUBS: The DTSwiss 350 and 240 series.

I was immediately taken by how light these wheels are. I mean even in the box. I struggled with tubeless - but learned a lot!
The wheels are excellent. 1000 miles plus now. My bike (Cannondale Synapse) is like a new machine. Thank you.
