gallery   why us    


This is the newest of our K1 carbon wheelsets. At 23-24mm wide, with a full carbon u-shaped rim profile - it is aimed at those riders who prefer an ultra-modern wider rimmed wheelset (but not too wide!). They come in at approximately 1700 Grams a PAIR in their standard format - which can be reduced to sub-1500 grams with a spoke/hub upgrade!!

It's the partner to our long established K155c wheelset (which has a more conventional toroidal/semi-u shaped narrower rim and an alloy braking surface).  Ideal for tyres from 23c right up to 30c and beyond. Perfect for running tyres at lower pressure and arguably more aerodynamic and faster rolling than traditional hoops! Though this debate will continue to rage and rage!

We can supply them with a range of clincher or Tubeless tyres - NOW INCLUDING what we reckon is the fastest all-round clincher combination known to humankind: This is the Conti GP4000iiS tyres (23cFront/25cRear), 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).

Whether you intend to go wider or narrower - we'll have the right wheelset for you!


 With Full 1 Year 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.



NOTE: If you are intending to race alpine descents in very hot weathers, you may want to look at our 2018 full-carbon clinchers or our carbon clinchers with Alloy braking surface, which have a more familiar braking feel. All full carbon clincher wheels (from all brands) do need more considered "pulsed" braking on long hot descents to prevent rims from heating too much (Our new 2018 full-carbons have the highest temperature resistant rim tech available!).

The technology has come such a long way in recent years that most riders are now fine with full-carbons, and they are lighter of course. We just like to give our customers all the facts .

Reviewer: Peter Chapman from SE10   4 Stars
I bought these on recommendation from a friend. I've nothing to compare them with as they are my first and only (ever i suspect) pair of carbon wheels. I do know they make me go faster and make my bike look very nice. Being able to choose the finish colour is a very nice touch. Thank you.

Reviewer: David Thomas from West Glam   5 Stars
I do love these wheels. It did take some serious soul-searching before i finally hit the button and went for wider rims. (I used to race on 16mm rims back in olden-times!) I did have a few problems with setup as My Tektro brake calipers could not really handle the width of the rim. As soon as I put some Shimano brakes on all fine and I have not looked back - 28c tyres are so comfortable too. Brave new world!

Reviewer: Paul Bradley from Dublin   5 Stars
I carried out a lot of research before deciding to purchase the K155UC carbon clinchers wheels with 28mm wide tyres. I decided to go for lighter Sapim CRray on Bitex hubs, so they would be lighter than my existing wheel set. I have found a marked increase in speed on the flat using the same effort / power & down hill speed has increased also. Really like how they look. So all in all I'm very happy with my purchase at a very competitive price & would highly recommend these wheels to others.

Great wheels, they look and feel great to ride. A great improvement on the standard wheels that came with the bike. Excellent communication and delivery information.

Didn''t have the money for Zipps - wanted wheels that were aero, and a bit nice - but also had to be tough - as i''ve not alot of dosh! The kinetics have done me proud in sportifs and doing a few tri''s. For the money they are really something. They did forget to include Quicl Releases - but i rang up and they came next day.
