The K1-33 Duo is the latest highly specified stage in the evolution of our best selling wheel ever! We've been selling the K1-33's for 10 years now and it improves each year. Commissioned to our own design, It is one of 2 factory wheelsets we produce. We feel the K1-33 leads the way in high performance road/tt/tri wheels at a sensible cost. The K1-33's do whatever you ask of them.
Designed for the new generation of 25mm tyres (they will still take a 23mm tyre too). They are for clincher rims - that is to say that the wheels require tyres and inner tubes rather than the specialist tubulars.
Please note: These wheels aren't for kit obsessives - They are designed to be a good investment and (courtesy of super tough rims and spokes and sealed bearing Formula R-Series hubs) to be used day-in and day-out with no maintenance. To roll very fast but also to take the knocks and to keep on going, sweet and true for years. They have evolved over the years and we feel even more now that there is nothing quite like this aero-all-purpose wheel anywhere in the marketplace.
Deeper section, faster rolling and better finished than many other wheels around the £200-£300 price point, and a damn site more attractive in our humble opinion. Compare them with, Mavic Cosmic Elites, Mavic Aksium Elites and wheelsets like the Shimano RS330 and you'll see what we mean.
Weightwise the K1-33's compare favourably too, especially when you consider that you are paying only a tiny weight penalty for significantly deeper aerodynamic rims and aero bladed spokes than those offered by the big box shifters! What's more the tiny extra weight is for a reason - Its all in the strength of the rims. And they are strong!
The combined effect of this essential balance is quite simple: A faster rolling and super tough wheelset . We would argue that the K1-33's convincingly occupy their own unique position!
Super strong deep-section aero rims and new generation stainless bladed aerodynamic spokes cut through the air like a knife to offer blistering speed. We keep spare spokes, freehubs and hubs in stock should you ever need them! In short whether you want to race these wheels, train with these wheels or even commute they are spot on for the job. Aero enough to race, light enough for sportives - without going so light that strength gets compromised.
