INTENDED USE: This is the Kinetic-One built version of what A-Force claim to be the worlds fastest alloy rims. They back it up with tunnel data so we've no reason to doubt them! The rims are also beautifully made, use fantastic technological innovation and are extremely fast accelerating too. More details about them here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aforcewheels/al33-the-fastest-aluminum-bicycle-wheels

Tough enough for the hilliest and roughest of Sportives, Fast-accelerating enough for the busiest of bunch races and aero enough to ensure that you gain every possible watt of drag reduction.
Your wheels will be hand built to order here in the UK by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is most often 7-11 days. (current build times are shown at checkout).
Features a superb wider rim profile compatible with both tubeless and clincher tyres. Slightly wider rims are the future of road wheels. They enable seamless tyre interfaces for max aero gain, they allow for wider tyres for shorter 'contact patch' and less rolling resistance. And to top it all - they are tremendously comfortable - easing the lower back in the final miles of those long long rides.
Featuring a MATT BLACK 26.2mm wide TUBELESS & CLINCHER rim, light and strong with an asymmetric offset drilled rear rim profile to enable perfectly balanced spoke tensions for a much more responsive ride.They will take a tyre from 25c up to 40c width!
Offered With Full Warranty Plus A 14 Day "No Quibble Returns Policy" - If You're Not In Love With These Wheels The Moment You Get Them Just Send Them Back For A Refund Any Time Within 14 Days Of Receipt.
Tubeless 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 the new Hutchinson Fusion 5 Performance tubeless tyres or for pure speed the Continental GP5000 Tubeless tyres.
