INTENDED USE: Our latest 700c disc brake equipped super-light tarmac focused wheelset. Utilising lightweight hubs and a 485 gram aerodynamically optimised 33mm deep rim - coupled with aero spokes. This wheelset will take your disc equipped bike to the next level in sportives, bunch races and club chaingangs. At 24mm wide (19mm internal), it is designed specifically for 25 and 28mm tyres.
THIS IS THE "DISC" SPECIFIC (2-WAY FIT: CLINCHER AND TUBELESS COMPATIBLE) VERSION OF OUR TOP-END “SUPERLITE” AERO ROAD WHEELSET: BUILT FROM RACE PROVEN HIGH-END COMPONENTS AND COMBINING SUPERB STRENGTH, WITH SUPERB AERODYNAMICS ...... WEIGHING AS LITTLE AS 1548 GRAMS WITH CXRAY SPOKES. OR AT ONLY 1565 GRAMS A PAIR WITH STANDARD PSR1422 AERO SPOKES.
Light and tough enough for the hilliest and roughest of sportives. And fast-accelerating enough for racing, and aero enough to ensure that you gain every possible watt of drag reduction. These are our premium lightweight/ aero PERFORMANCE DISC wheelset.
Features our new offset OCR rim with asymmetric spoking to perfectly balance spoke tensions. At 485 grams this is also an extremely light disc rim.
Your wheels will be hand built to order here in the UK by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 Wheels. (current build times are shown above).
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!)
RIMS: Beautifully constructed from the incredibly light and tough Niobium Alloy. It may sound like something from star-trek! In reality its the perfect alloy for road disc wheels. The rim profile further enhances the specificity of the wheels to the requirements and peculiarities of road disc usage. The rim shape means we can generate higher spoke tensions than conventional rims allow on the disc-side of the wheel. The result being far more responsive and affirmative braking.
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 Bitex 6-Drive and DTSwiss hubs (for Centerlock and 6-bolt rotor builds). Weights below for c/lock. Add approx 100 grams for 6-bolt rotor hubs.
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!
