I must admit i bought them on looks - but so releived that when i used them they were a cracking set of wheels too. Would have felt a bit of a lemon otherwise. Keep on rocking and rolling!

Bought some of these wheels back in June as a present for my wife . Correspondance with Andy was first class . These wheels look fantastic , and they perform beautifully too . She has managed to get PB''s on nearly every ride this summer ( i keep saying it''s the wheels that deserve the credit and not her !!!) . Can''t recommend these wheels , or Kinetic-One enough .

Truly excellent!!!! I had my doubts when I read the specs on these wheels and then the price, surely to good to be true! As light as any wheelset on the market, but hundreds of pounds less! After quick and sound advice from the Kinetic team I took the plunge....and never regretted it once! The box when it came was so light I thought it was empty! The wheels look fantastic on my Cube bike and fit my wireless bike computer module fine (even with the aero spokes). I improved my average speed by 2 mph on my first ride, even in a strong winter headwind, and the wheels shook off even the harshest of the South Wests potholes, impressive for such a light wheelset! The wheels hold up well in crosswinds, with no great effect on your heading as is the problem with other lighter wheels with bigger rim sizes. Even these strong winter winds do not knock me off my direction of travel! The hubs on both front and back are incredibly smooth, and roll with a great speed! I had to use my own kit to secure the wheels to the frame as those supplied were a little too small but that caused no great problems. I have had a bad puncture which isn't the wheels fault, just a shame I can't use them until it is fixed which is killing me! Overall, great service, superb wheels for road riding, or triathlons. I look forward to Olympic distance triathlons next year using these wheels! I have yet to ride a considerable distance on them but as soon as the puncture is fixed then I will crank up the miles and review separately. If you want lightweight, strong and value for money wheels, get these bad boys!!!!!

My KI wheels have been everything I could have wished for.I am currently training for a European event from Switzerland to London so have done plenty of miles with no problems.Not suprised that they are the best sellers.

I've done well over 1000k on these and they are terrific. I'm quite heavy and really notice that I am pulling better into a headwind and cresting hills with less effort. They seem to want to roll all day. Ride is firm but not harsh. Service and advice from Andy is what swayed me to buy - couldn't have been more helpful.
Gary - Mallorca
Very pleased. Strong, stiff, fast - all I need. 1000 km under my belt with them now.

I can only add to all the good things said about these wheels. Tremendous.

An update to my previous review now that I've had a seasons use out of them. Really very impressed with these wheels- they have stayed true the whole summer without any tweaking at all and I've hit my fair share of pot holes(one of which wrote of the front wheel of a fellow riders very expensive carbon hoops). When free wheeling down hills i was noticeably quicker than others, though i know there are other factors to consider i have no doubt that there was an increase in speed over my previous wheelset. The hubs spin very, the rims have been mistaken for carbon due to their anodised finish and surprise has been expressed about them being so light and yet not carbon. Great wheels and so pleased i bought these lovely Italian engineered wheels expertly built up by Andy of Kinetic 1

Coming from stock Alexrimms DA22 to these is a massive transformation to a 2009 GT Series Three. Had these wheels just over 6 months now. K1's spin up nice and easy, holding the pace without complaint. Instantly saw average speed jump by 3-4km/h. Rode nicely along national cycling route 23 in the Isle of Wight which is not all tarmac and they stayed true too. They are certainly up to to a daily ride on British roads. Riden with Michelin Pro3s with Schwable light tubes. Tricky to get on/off the wheel following 2 flats but that is down to the tyre. About to try Conti GP4000s with Conti Race 28 Light tubes. Seem to be a lot easier to get on and off. Highly recommend these wheels. Excellent communication and discussion with Andy regarding other wheelsets in similar price brackets. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair of these for race only.

I would give my new wheels a six if I could!
They are quite simply the best road wheels I have ridden.
I previously had 50mm full carbon wheels on my Mekk which I struggled to get on with. They always felt unstable especially when out of the saddle giving it loads and we're difficult to keep up to speed. Well, it is the complete opposite with the K1's, I can now explode up hills with less effort and can maintain better speeds over longer distances.
I have beaten most of my best times on Strava and by a long way on some and I'm nowhere near as fit as I can be due to just coming back from a broken collarbone. A lot of that is down to the wheels.
They are also lighter than my carbon wheelset and quieter!
This is my second pair of Kinetic wheels and probably won't be my last. They are just so well made, extremely durable and look fantastic.
Well done Andy and the team, keep up the good work

Have been on the lookout for a wheel upgrade to finish off my Wilier GTRSL, After some excellent advice from Andy I was pointed towards the K-1 30SL.
Finally had a weather window to try them on the Club run this morning, couldn’t be happier 😀.Smooth , fast & quiet, Perfect for Cornwall’s short steep rolling terrain.Picked up a couple of bonus climbing PR’s 👍(Nothing to do with the tail wind)Many thanks Andy for a top quality product
