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.
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.

Great service. The wheels are excellent. My only complaint is I have not got out on my bike more this summer.
Great value and they look fantastic too.
The staff were very good with advice and answered all of my emails quickly. All in all I would certainly say give it a go.
Wheels: K1-42S Duo Stealth. Are there lighter wheels out there? Probably - in fact with admirable candour Andy makes the same point but at this price you will be doing extremely well to find anything better in terms of both looks and function. These wheels want to go and by crikey do they look the part. This is my second round of K1 wheels and I won''t be going anywhere else for the next set, though these look like they will check out long after I do. And a huge chapeau / thanks to Andy for getting them to me way ahead of schedule. You are an absolute star.
Give this man your business - you will be very pleased you did.
Normally I'm a sceptic. With these wheels, it was no different. I'd never heard of Kinetic before and didn't know anyone who owned their wheels. Until a fellow club rider raved about them on his Strava. I also didn't believe how great he said their wheels were....until I rode a pair myself.
The ride is smooth and comfortable. Surprising for deep section alloy. They're responsive up climbs and manageable in crosswinds. I rode them on a windy day across Dartmoor and they were sublime. The hubs are phenomenal too. On my club ride, despite being at least 30kg heavier than most, I found myself losing a lot less speed up crests than the other riders.
I'm very happy with my purchase and they are better than the Shimano RS11s they replaced. Kinetic really are a best kept secret and the value is unbelievable too. A great frame needs great wheels and my frame finally has them.
so far i am very impressed with the wheels,they seem to roll really well ,they feel strong enough with my weight around 90 kilo,i have two bikes and these wheels compliment both bikes really well so will have to purchase another set in the future.overall very happy with the service from Andy and i am looking forward to getting some km,s in
I Got In touch with Andy form Kinetic-1 who was very helpful, i ordered new wheels and they were delivered very promptly. Over the moon when they arrived & looked just great on the bike. I would definitely recommend people to these guys, Superb wheels with a fantastic friendly service.
Dear sir, I purchased a set of wheels from you some 3 or 4 months ago.
First impression was they looked very good but I wanted to give them a good road testing before I made my mind up about them. I am very pleased to say I think these wheels are great and I have no hesitation in recommending them to a lot of people who have asked me about them.will be coming back to you when they need replacing which I think will be along while off yet.thanks very much Bob G
Love these wheels, absolutely love them. They ride like a dream, hubs are silky smooth and before I installed them on the bike I spun them in my hand and that’s is when I started smiling. It becomes a big decision buying a new set, having been through ‘big’ brand wheels and been relatively happy (ish). I phoned/emailed Andy and had a chat with him, he pointed towards these ‘beauties’, the K1-40S wheelset after discussing my preferences. Strong and true out of the box I find they are definitely a step up from the wheels I have had previously and I cannot tell that they are slightly, very slightly heavier than my current wheels, Cosmic Elites, if anything, they respond better on pick up and roll faster at speed. They also certainly feel like they can take more punishment, which on UK roads is a huge bonus and I am looking forward to testing them out for many miles, Thanks Andy, I can’t stop grinning 😊
I would recommend using Kinetic One for an upgrade on wheels. A mix of wheels to suit all budgets. All I can say is
Andy is so helpful on e mail
Order process simple
Delivery tracking process easy
Delivery bang on time
The end result, a happy customer!!! And a great looking bike!!!
Thank you Kinetic. Will use again!!!
I bought these wheels as a bit of a treat to myself before a big charity ride, I can't recommend them highly enough. I have certainly noticed a difference on how well they roll on the flat and pick up speed on the down-hills, if only they could magic me to the top of some of the hills around here!
I have done a few thousand km's on them now and they haven't missed a beat, they inevitably get some punishment with potholes and I can't see that they have moved an millimetre out of shape in that time.
The customer service from Kinetic was absolutely exemplary, when I had a small issue (my making) it was dealt with swiftly and very fairly, genuinely some of the best service I have ever encountered.
Bought these on finance as I could not outright purchase them and could not be more happy with the product. Great buy from a great company!
