Our 2018 series sees the introduction of brand new filament-wound fully robotic-built ultra-high temperature K1-52UC ULTIMATE rims. Sounds fancy: Filament winding technology is an automated method which has revolutionised rim consistency in the manufacture of full carbon wheels.

Not only does this make for stronger, longer lasting wheels - but also the nature of the "winding process"  facilitates another new technology that massively increases braking capability - especially at high temperatures.  

The filament winding process enables the injection of a patented ultra heat resistant resin - directly into the carbon filaments - whilst the rim is built. This means the rim's braking surface is fully impregnated with resin during manufacture - rather than a braking surface being added to the surface of the rim post-production.

This makes for better braking - especially on long hot descents. Our 2018 rims have their braking performance tested up to 220 degrees celcius.  This is 60 degrees higher than our previous rims.


YOU CAN RUN THESE WHEELS WITH CLINCHERS OR WITH TUBELESS TYRES: IF YOU WANT US TO SUPPLY AND FIT THE NEW GENERATION SCHWALBE ONE TUBELESS PRO TYRES WE CAN DO THIS FOR £133 (Includes tyres/tapes/sealant/valves and extenders - so that you're ready to ride them straight out of the box.
