INTENDED USE:
  This is our "max-aero multi-functional Sportive/TT/Tri" carbon wheelset.  It features an alloy braking surface for reassurance, best braking and for all-round versatility. Ideal for road work and also for Time Trials, Triathlons, and also spot-on for bunch racing.

Performance characteristics are maximised through combining a slightly deeper rear rim (for better aero performance) - with a shallower 50mm front wheel, (for perfect handling in technical/windy conditions.)


YOUR WHEELS WILL BE HANDBUILT TO ORDER HERE IN THE UK. TURNAROUND TIME IS 4-7 DAYS!



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)

These are our stunning 2018 K1 Carbon 50mm deep front /58mm deep rear -   700c clincher wheels (for inner tubes and tyres). For Road or Time Trial or Tri bikes. They have alloy braking surfaces.  This is the new deeper version of our best-selling K1-55c wheels - new rim depth but same spec and equipment options!  Includes lovely new 20/24 spoke choices - some lighter, some more aero, and some in superb new colours to make your bike simply stunning!


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).



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

The K1-65mm wheelset is aimed at Triathletes and Time Triallists, where aero is king but you don't want to add the weight of 80mm rims to your bike. Also ideal for flatter/less windy sportives and bunch races -  We've also 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 50/58's are built around our modern "semi U" shaped structural carbon semi-toroidal aero rim. designed to run best with 25c to 40c wide tyres).  The rim is designed to cut through the air going forward, whilst maintaining a superb lateral integrity to cross-winds across a full range of wind "yaw" angles.  

Unlike the vast majority of alu-carbon deep-section aero wheelsets, the K1-50/58c's are also designed to be super-strong. Perfect for racing and still strong enough to train on. Lighter wheels are available but we have decided to prioritise strength and durability ... as this is what we have become known for! (We do of course offer some superb weight saving upgrades too).


We also wanted to keep it simple and versatile! The inclusion of an alloy braking surface means you can use your K1 wheels without having to use carbon specific brake blocks. This is a massive benefit for most riders. 

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!  

​Our view is that the majority of carbon wheels are light mainly because of scant structural strength rather than because of any serious design rationale. (Combine any modern carbon rims and virtually any spoke and hub combination you will end up with a pretty light wheelset!)  But that's only half the story ...  After all it says nothing of its build quality or as importantly.

Reviewer: Ben LLewellyn from Dalston, London   5 Stars
Andy built me a great set of Aero Wheels. I've used leading wheel brands in the past (some you see in the Pro Peloton) and comparing the amount I spent with Andy vs. my individual performance gain, it's definitely been worth the investment! My speed results/segment results are much better than expected and in addition to this: the service from Andy is fantastic, he's a very experienced and talented wheel builder. The breaking surface on the Deep Section Aero Alloy Rims is very very good and they hold speed ~38-40kph in the bunch as if I'm riding a motor bike! I highly recommend Kinetic One.
