This is the newest of our K1 carbon wheelsets. At 24mm wide, with a full carbon u-shaped rim profile - it is aimed at those riders who prefer an ultra-modern wider rimmed wheelset. When specced with the wonderfully aero and light Sapim Race spokes.... They come in UNDER 1690 Grams a PAIR!! And they are also "tubeless ready"!
The new generation wide rims are perfectly suited to disc-brake riding. They are very strong, yet very light and very forgiving to ride. Ideal for tyres from 25c right up to 30c and beyond. Perfect for running tyres at lower pressure and arguably more aerodynamic and faster rolling than traditional hoops!
It's an incredibly fast-moving time for road disc systems at the moment with lots of competing standards for Axle types and frame fitting methods and for rotor fastening.
These wheel are totally versatile and ready to work all the modern variants that different brands are working to ( apart from the crazy specialized system!)
IF YOU CAN STRETCH THE BUDGET TO THE BITEX OR DTSWISS HUB UPGRADE THEN WE THINK YOU HAVE THE MOST FUTURE PROOFED HIGH-END HUBS YOU CAN GET (well without re-mortgaging your house!)
The K1-55UC's are handbuilt to order and are available for the whole wide range of modern axle and rotor fitment systems. Whatever your frame needs we can configure these wheels to your bike. And even if you change your bike - the hubs are all simply convertible to all the other axles standards! We think that's massively important as it future-proofs your wheels! (no one wants to be left with the betamax of hub types and obsolete wheels!)
Or just drop us a line If you don't know what system your bike has (you won't be alone - many people very understandably don't know, they just want to ride their bike after all!)
AXLES : We can configure your wheel axles to meet your frame requirements. So whether you have standard quick release or the more modern "thru-axle" setup, or whether you have 135mm or 142 mm rear spacing, we can supply them ready-to-roll!
ROTOR / HUB FITMENT : We use Novatec 771/772 hub and Upgraded Bitex 6-drive hubs (for 6-bolt rotor and Centerlock builds). WE NOW ALSO OFFER THE ULTIMATE IN PERFORMANCE HUBS. The DTSwiss 350 and 240 series in both Centerlock and 6-Bolt flavours.
