SOLD OUT - NEXT STOCK EXPECTED 26th AUGUST

INTENDED USE:  The 80c's are about all out max speed. 

Cutting edge tech. With their super deep U-shaped 23mm wide rim, with aero spokes and ALLOY braking surface, this wheelset is ideal for Time Trials and Triathlons, but is too deep for sportives and road bikes.

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.

The K1-80mm wheelset is new to our range and is aimed squarely at Triathletes and Time Triallists. We've  designed them to be a super-tough "investment" wheelset. We believe carbon wheels should be as strong as alloy wheels. (more on this below!)

The 80's are built around our modern "semi U" shaped structural carbon semi-toroidal aero rim (which is designed to run best with 25mm wide tyres but can also take 28's).  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 K1-80c'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 wheels without having to use carbon specific brake blocks. This is a massive benefit for most riders. 

 

We can supply them 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).



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

After investing in a set of the K180c - 80mm Deep Carbon / Alloy Clinchers, I have not been disappointed! A solid set of deep section wheels, providing a smooth ride whilst rolling fast, look great & British built to boot! Cannot recommend these wheels enough!
