The K1-33 RAD is the latest highly specified stage in the evolution of our best selling wheel ever! We've been selling the K1-33's for 11 years now and it improves each year. Commissioned to our own design, It is one of 2 factory wheelsets we produce. Whether racing, training or even commuting they do the job.

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.

Compared to last years model, they are now hand finished and hand-trued. We are a bespoke custom bike builder and our offer is based on quality products rather than cheap products. We have worked extremely hard to keep the price down to fit within the budget of most riders. The K1-33's are built to our specification and entirely in the EU.

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. 

 IF YOU WANT A GOOD, ALL-PURPOSE, LONG LASTING WHEEL TO MAKE YOU FASTER AS WELL AS MAKE YOUR BIKE LOOK GREAT IN AN INSTANT, WE'D SUGGEST GOING FOR THE K1-33's.

Loved the colour scheme of the decals from the first moment I saw them, so decided to take a chance on other reviews. Happy to say that the reviews I read were good and true. The wheels are very well built and to an extremely high quality! They are slightly heavy compared with similar on the market at this price, but, with the slightly aero rim, the bladed spokes and a nice free wheeling hub, the ride is still fantastic! I love these wheels...they are fast, smooth and very pretty.

I've been running my K1-33 wheels since September 2014 for both long weekend rides and the daily commute. They still look as good as new and are rolling perfectly. The wheels are proving to be bomb proof as advertised, built reassuringly well, they remain tight and stiff as the day they arrived. Add the stunningly good looks and you have a fantastically priced set of top quality wheels. So, take the great experience I have had so far with these wheels and add the flawless service Kinetic-One provided in processing my order and delivering (updates by email all the way including the name of the delivery driver and the name of my neighbour who took the delivery as I was out!) and your left with one option. Buy these wheels now! A top end product at bottom end prices supplied by a thorough and professional UK company! What more do you want?
Neil Turner - United Kingdom (Norfolk Riviera)
Excellent value for money, quality and looks. The wheels roll nicely, feel very firm and strong with no hint of flex and do look at least twice the price thanks to the modest graphics and bladed spokes. Would recommend them as TT, road or training wheels.
Sara Dias-Ayton - Hampshire
Lovely light pair of wheels. Good enough to race on yet the price of a training wheel. Very pleased with these.
Kevin McDermott - .
had these wheels for 2 years. The wheels have done over 10000miles in that time and remained true. This News Year Day whilst out riding I had a crash when riding through a puddle that turned out to be a 5 feet x 3 feet and 7 inches deep pot hole at over 20mph. The impact caused me to kiss the tarmac and sustain the usual road rash. The impact took out both front and rear tubes and the front wheel to become untrue. At the LBS they were amazed that the wheels had survived such a major impact with such little damage. 2 dents in the rim which were knocked out and the wheel retrued. The wheel is as good as new and rolling out the miles again. The wheels are superb, fab rollers and almost maintenance free. At the price you knock them out for they are a true steal. Just thought I would let you have feedback on the endurance and strength of a truly super product.
Neil Harrison - UK
Excellent set of wheels,sturdy enough to take the pounding of Cheshire tarmac (and potholes) no problem. Light and durable at this price - excellent value. Bling rating - 5/5 really look the D's B's.
Chris Watts - Tynemouth
I bought these wheels for my Specialized winter (cyclocross) bike. They're superb. Aside from the fact they look great (I bought the black/white option) and appear far more expensive than they really are, the roll like a dream and have coped really well with the pothole-ridden Northumberland countryside. No punctures so far and the wheels are still as true as they day I put them on the bike. My carbon summer bike has DuraAce C24s. I've no complaints with them, but they they don't roll as well as my Kinetics. I'm now trying to work out how to convince my wife I need a pair of the red/black/white Kinetics for the summer bike. Unfortunately she knows the DuraAce are half decent and cost about 3 times the price of the Kinetics.
Russ Hardman - Northampton
An upgrade for a largely novice cyclist, have been very impressed, have had them on my bike for around for 4 months covering circa 500 miles, still running true despite a few potholes, decals not everyones taste but wheels represent good value for money when compared to competitors,, preferred my old skewers, more on looks than anything else.
Andy Wescott - Barton on Sea
I have covered over 1000 miles on these rims and can only say they are fantastic. The graphics are very stylish and the rigidity is second to none which is very confidence inspiring. They have remained absolutely true, roll very freely and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
