INTENDED USE: This wheelset is ideal for Shorter Time Trials and Triathlons. Where speed and aerodynamics are king  .... yet handling and responsiveness are still important considerations. 
 


YOUR WHEELS WILL BE HANDBUILT TO ORDER HERE IN THE UK. TURNAROUND TIME IS 4-7 DAYS!


The 65mm deep front wheel is superbly aero yet retains reassuring stability in cross winds. (Unless you are a very confident bike handler or you really genuinely need every single second - such as in drag-strip time trial courses), we feel that 65mm is as deep as most riders would want to go on a front wheel! (We do offer an 80mm front wheel combo also!)

The front 65 is coupled with our ultra-deep rear 80mm deep rear - to minimise drag and give you every watt of power. 


We can supply these wheels with a range of clincher tyres - NOW INCLUDING what we reckon is the fastest all-round clincher combination known to humankind: This is the Conti GP4000iiS tyres, paired with latex inner tubes. The combination of rolling resistance tests and formal aerodynamics assessments affirms this is the best way to go for all out speed. And when we say all round we mean for real world riding. There are slightly faster tyres ... but they won't last 5 minutes on UK roads! (The GP4000's have puncture protection and are strong as well as blisteringly fast).

With alloy braking surfaces you don't need special brake pads and braking is better than with Full-carbon clinchers (particularly on very long descents)

These are our stunning 2017 K1 Carbon 80mm (rear) / 55mm (front) deep section 700c clincher wheels (for inner tubes and tyres). For Road or Time Trial or Tri bikes. They have alloy braking surfaces.  Upgraded from the 2016 model thanks to the inclusion of lovely new 20/24 spoke choices - some lighter, some more aero, and some in superb new colours to make your bike simply stunning!


Whilst we don't formally have maximum rider weights, these wheels are aimed at riders up to about 100 kg.


The 80/65's are built around our modern "semi U" shaped structural carbon semi-toroidal aero rim. designed to run best with 25c to 40c wide tyres).  The rim is designed to cut through the air going forward, whilst maintaining a superb lateral integity to cross-winds across a full range of wind "yaw" angles.  

Unlike the vast majority of carbon deep-section aero wheelsets, the K1-80/65c's are also designed to be super-strong. Perfect for racing and still strong enough to train on. Within the carbon rim is a structural alloy cross section that gives these wheels hugely enhanced strength compared to most carbon wheels in the market.


We also wanted to keep it simple and versatile! The inclusion of an alloy braking surface means you can use your K1 wheels without having to use carbon specific brake blocks. This is a massive benefit for most riders. 

This is by no means the lightest wheelset on the market - and are by no means our lightest wheelset! This is because we have gone for strength and durability as our primary objective. There are very few carbon wheels on the market which are designed in this way and with this objective in mind!  

​Our view is that the majority of carbon wheels are light mainly because of scant structural strength rather than because of any serious design rationale. (Combine any modern carbon rims and virtually any spoke and hub combination you will end up with a pretty light wheelset!)  But that's only half the story ...  After all it says nothing of its build quality or as importantly,  it's structural strength or integrity!
