This is the new Limited edition version of our best selling alloy deep section wheelset! A high-end ALLOY aero wheelset for riders who want all the aero benefit and lightness of carbon - but want to stick with a more robust material.
Standard setup is with our superb Italian sealed bearing MICHE hubs and high end Belgian Sapim LAZER or RACE black spokes. (Choose Laser for lightness or choose Race for strength).
We offer various upgrades to spokes and hubs. Contact us if you’re not sure what’s best for you! Upgrades can help you get lighter, get even more aero or add to the lifetime of your wheels.
We also offer 2 spoke count options on this model. 20/24 is fine for most riders up to around the 95 kg mark. But for heavier riders (or those who are tough on their wheels!) we offer a 24/28 spoke super-strong option.
The use of such wonderful components enables us to produce a true "pro-level" multi-functional aero wheelset, at a reachable price point. And Handbuilt in Gloucestershire.
Offered With Full 2 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.
This wheel has a very specific place in our range (and in our hearts!). A super deep-section lightweight alloy wheel is the perfect "do-everything-wheelset" for multi-gradient triathlons, time trials and even sportives. Designed to run best with 25mm or 23mm tyres.
Light enough and comfortable enough to get you up those hills in good shape, (with silky smooth bearings to help even more), and aero enough to gift you free-speed on the flats and the downhills. At the same time these wheels have an additional benefit compared to carbon wheels: Their durability and strength.

I actually have 2 sets of these - one with track hubs for my singlespeed (that Andy built specially for me) and one for my Bianchi with gears. Both sets perform great and look great and I would recommend them. A Kinetic shop in Ireland would do well!

I purchased a set of wheels from you some 3 or 4 months ago. First impression was they looked very good but I wanted to give them a good road testing before I made my mind up about them. I am very pleased to say I think these wheels are great and I have no hesitation in recommending them to a lot of people who have asked me about them.will be coming back to you when they need replacing which I think will be along while off yet.thanks very much Bob G
