2020 Kinetic-One K1-42TL AERO 42mm deep Alloy wheels


Select Currency


Quite simply... The world’s first and only deep-section Tubeless/clincher alloy wheelset


INTENDED USE:  Sportives, Bunch races, time trial and Triathlon (from Sprint to IRONMAN distance.) This is our multi-functional custom built ALLOY aero wheelset. This is a super tough - super aero racing and training wheelset that is equally at home on Summer TT's and fast winter commutes!


It’s for riders who want all the aero benefits of carbon - but want to stick with a more robust material and also save a significant sum of money at the same time. Not the lightest wheels we do of course but an enduring best seller ... now with the added benefit of being tubeless ready

It seems inconceivable to us: There was not a single deep-alloy TUBELESS & CLINCHER READY wheelset available anywhere on the planet... yet the benefits and need for them is so self-evident. So, in keeping with our long experience of innovation in wheel design... we came up with our own wheels. 

Fully clincher and tubeless ready they are 23mm wide externally and 17.5 internally. Fully performance optimised for 25c and 28c tyres (will also take a 23mm if you have frame clearance issues ... or if you are old skool!)


Super aero rims complimented by black aero bladed spokes. We offer a range of build options - to suit your budget, your weight and depending whether your focus is on ‘all out aero’, or on reducing weight... or on the sheer look of these wheels!

The rims are handmade for us in Northern Italy by craftsmen who we’ve worked with for almost 20 years.


Your wheels will be hand built to order here in the UK by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is most often 7-11 days. (current build times are shown at checkout).

Offered With Full Warranty Plus A 14 Day "No Quibble Returns Policy" - If You're Not In Love With These Wheels The Moment You Get Them Just Send Them Back For A Refund Any Time Within 14 Days Of Receipt.

Bought these wheels (the previous version) to go on my own bike build (from scratch - every single bit) ready for the etape cymru. I rode the dragon on a hire bike with enve wheels so wanted something similar without the price tag and a better braking performance. These were the best purchase I have made for any bike, strong, not too heavy, aerodynamically effective and look damn sexy too and they let you stop, even in the wet. Love the lacing too and as you can see on the photo my build looks very professional with these wheels.....so get some!!!!!! lol Rode the etape in 6hrs 40 mins and did the timed horshoe pass section in 21 min 55secs....the wheels just eat the climbs, rip up the flats and accelerate smoothly downhill....bring on the next dragon!!!!

Really pleased with these wheels, I use them for everything from training days to racing. Great value for money and they look absolutely spot on. They perform really well and are sturdy enough to handle even the worst roads of sheffield - overall I highly recommned them. The service I''ve had from Kinetic-two has been great and personal which is rare when buying online.

I bought these wheels for my Scott CR1 Team road bike, after months of agonising over the high prices of wheelsets that were being recommended to me by other riders. I couldn't believe the realistic prices that I was seeing when I came across the Kinetic website by pure chance, and the supporting comments from other purchasers were extremely positive. I'm now pleased to add myself to that list of positive purchasers. These wheels are fantastic, and have really made a difference to my riding, plus they are much, much stronger than I would have ever have expected. Check out my full, first ride report, complete with pictures here: http://www.mtbe.co.uk/putting-the-new-wheels-to-the-full-test-t39355.html Already thinking about another set for Cannondale Super Six!!!

Great value for money..have them on my Cube and will put them to good use on time trials in the New Year. already done 500 miles around Dartmoor and these are far more rigid than my Rolf Vector rims on my focus..... which cost alot more !!
Gary - Bristol
Very good service, extremely pleased with the wheels, very well built, may not be the lightest out there but definitely one of the best looking ones.Will be back for something lighter when I've finished shedding weight and dont require such a robust wheel.Would recommend these to any one wanting a very solid wheel, that rolls very well, is a bargain price and is different from the crowd..........ps They look the dogs danglers which is what its all about really aint it..cheers

Great wheels. They have improved the times on my routes by minutes and look great as well. Get some, you'll not regret it!

Lovely wheels. Have definitely noticed a big difference and managed to knock 3 mins of my 10 mile time at Castle Coombe recently
Eugene - Birmingham
Wheels have been great, light and fast. Not affected much by cross winds at all. Really pleased with the performance and the look.

I spent a while wondering whether or not to get some deep rim wheels and I obviously considered more expensive brands but when I saw the value for money offered by Kinetic 1 I immediately bought from them. These are easily the best alloy wheels I've had, solid, stable and they really look the part! I would definitely recommend them to anybody. (Photo is in the gallery)
