INTENDED USE: Sportives, Bunch races and Triathlons (from Sprint to IRONMAN distance.) This is our 'SUPERLIGHT' K1-45SL Deep Alloy wheelset. Available in several build options - with weights as low as 1698 grams per pair. Superbly light for a deep alloy wheelset. They also feature our superb and rather beautiful full matt black ‘graphite’ alloy rims.
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).
This is the Limited edition version of our best selling alloy deep section wheelset! A high-end ALLOY aero wheelset for riders who want all the aero benefit and lightness of carbon - but want to stick with a more robust material.
The K1-45SL is incredibly versatile: a raceday wheelset, A 'Sunday best' set for your posh bike, and all-season/heavy load wheelset.
The standard AEROLIGHT option is built with our superb Italian sealed bearing Ambrosio hubs and PSR Aero spokes.
We offer various upgrades to spokes and hubs. For example - our recommended AEROFLOW build with Miche hubs uses the toughest and lowest drag hubs available anywhere!
And the Bitex SL hubs used on our SUPERAEROLIGHT build are among the lightest high-performance hubs available. Contact us if you’re not sure what’s best for you!
We also offer 3 spoke count options: 20/24 is fine for most riders up to around the 100kg mark. But for heavier riders (or those who are tough on their wheels!) we offer a 24/28 spoke super-strong option. For very light riders we also have a 20/20 version.
The use of such fabulous components enables us to produce a true "pro-level" multi-functional aero wheelset, at a reachable price point. And of course they are hand-built in Gloucestershire!!
Offered With Full Warranty and professional mechanic support in-house.
This wheel has a very specific place in our range (and in our hearts!). A super deep-section lightweight alloy wheel is the perfect "do-everything-wheelset" for multi-gradient triathlons, time trials and even sportives. Designed to run best with 25mm or 23mm tyres.
Light enough and comfortable enough to get you up those hills in good shape, (with silky smooth bearings to help even more), and aero enough to gift you free-speed on the flats and the downhills. At the same time these wheels have an additional benefit compared to carbon wheels: Their durability and strength.
