Intro Offer: 2023 Kinetic-One “K1-42ST AERO (SuperTough)" Deep Alloy Wheelset (up to 150kg)
Rated to 150kg - Quite simply... The world’s first and only deep-section Tubeless/clincher alloy wheelset aimed at bigger guys.
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 sportives and TT's, but also tough enough for 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.
Super aero rims complimented by superb black spokes and hubs. 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! Available in several build options:
Our standard “go to” set rated to 125kg riders is our superb AEROLIGHT, performance build with excellent Italian Ambrosio sealed hubs, PSR aero spokes.
Our mid-weight build is the the fabulous AEROFLOW option - with PSR AERO spokes and superb MICHE PRIMATO hubs, the lowest drag hubs available anywhere - and prodigiously strong too! (More>>) This build is rated up to a maximum 135kg
Or for really big guys we have the AEROTOUGH build. Using Sapim CXRAY spokes and the amazing Bitex BX103 hubs - this is a true high performance/reliability wheelset. (The BX103 rear hub uses double the number of hub axle bearings of normal hubs - 6 in fact - spreading the load incredibly effectively.) Rated to a maximum 150kg rider loads.
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!)
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. (current build times are shown above).
Offered With Full Warranty and professional mechanic support in-house.

Kinetic one’s Amazing deep section aluminium wheels
It hardly ever happens that an Amazing product comes with Amazing service by genuinely decent people. This isn’t just a product review as that would give enough credit to the service that you get.
The product is fantastic, I’m a heavy rider and went through 2 standard sets of wheels in my first year of cycling. I stumbled across kinetic one and was contacted by the genius behind the product Andy. He took my concerns and built me a set of wheels to a spec that are just about bomb proof. When looking at prices it’s easy to think that’s too good to be true but stop there!
I opened the box and they looked WOW, I fitted them to the bike and the bike looked extra WOW, I rode them the first time and they rolled so smooth with a fantastic free hub sound. They have put up with a 125kg rider who quite often rides with a sadistic friend who rides virtually anywhere.
Now onto the service. Andy took my concerns with other wheels, details of my size and riding style and made the recommendation. I placed the order and was given an estimated delivery time. Did they arrive on time? No they were 5 days early which made it all even better, I had them on the bike then straight on the road.
Andy also offers servicing for wheels he has built which is very open in what’s offered at a decent price.
Finally I have a set of wheels I wanted to store from another bike and Andy kindly supplied for a reasonable fee solid packing boxes to keep the wheels safe.
I can not recommend Andy and his team high enough they do business and in a nice and genuine but professional way possible. Thanks very much for everything
Very nice wheels look great and strong can’t go wrong with buying a set of these I’m even thinking of getting another set for my other bike.
Hey Andy, just back from the trip and the 42 toughs withstood the Paris - Roubaix and Flanders cobbles amazingly. Happy if you want to use these words for your website! Regards Geoff Shaw (Staines Surrey)
