INTENDED USE: Our reinforced 28/28h carbon disc wheelset designed specifically for HEAVIER RIDERS
Combining all the knowledge and experience we've built up over the past 20 years. The 46ST's combine superlative strength, low weights, with maximal aero gains, married to the latest rim profiles (to get the most from modern tyre systems).
Rated up to 135kg riders.
At 28mm wide with superb aero characteristics married to superlative strength - they are specified for TARMAC and also suited to TRAIL and CYCLOCROSS.
We designed them specifically to get the best out of the new generation clincher and tubeless tyres. Optimised for road tyres in the range of 25 to 32mm range - they will also take gravel/adventure tyres right through to 50mm and beyond.
Our objective for the 46ST wheelset was simple and clear: To meaningfully bring carbon wheel technology to heavier riders: Combining a super tough carbon lay-up, which is drilled to safely and effectively handle the increased forces that disc-braking generates - especially under heavier riders. Add to this a choice of extremely strong high-performance hubs and spokes- and the result is the K1-46ST.
With a particular focus on Sportive type events - and weighing in from as little as 1550 grams. That’s very light and tough for a 46mm deep, fully tubeless/clincher compatible wheelset aimed at bigger guys.
Your wheels will be Handbuilt to order here in the uk by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. (Exact current build times are shown above).
Offered With Full Warranty and professional mechanic support in-house.
This is the newest of our K1 carbon wheelsets. At 28mm wide, 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 fabulous BITEX futureproofed hubs with PSR aero spokes get weights down to a tiny 1550 Grams a PAIR.
(Max weight limit 125kg)
Or for heavier riders up to 135kg - go for the DTSwiss 350 hubs with cxray spokes. The best engineered, and most durable setup possible.
The new generation wide rims are perfectly suited to disc-brake riding. They are very strong, yet very light and very forgiving to ride. Perfect for running tyres at lower pressure and more aerodynamic and faster rolling than traditional hoops!
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.
They 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 superbly versatile and lightweight Miche and Bitex 6-drive hubs, WE NOW ALSO OFFER THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE HUBS: The DTSwiss 350 in both Centerlock and 6-Bolt flavours. Weights below for C/Lock. Add approx 100 grams for 6 bolt.
