Product information

STANDARD RIM  ---  IN STOCK

GRAPHITE RIM --- IN STOCK ( UPGRADE PRICE WAS £55 - now £42)


INTENDED USE: Our premium climbing / sportive wheelset. They are our lightest wheelset and are specified to save weight whilst retaining serious strength. If you want to pimp your ride we also offer a full black hard anodised "graphite" version of these wheels. 

Your wheels will be handbuilt to order here in the UK by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is 4-7 days!




Offered With Full 2 Year 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.

Fully upgraded for 2018: Over the past 12 months we've been repeatedly asked to produce an even lighter, lightweight climbers sportive aero-wheelset. A Lightweight wheelset for those diagonals - but one that retains the aero & strength benefits we have become known for.

These are handbuilt wheels of the highest order - utilising only the most highly regarded components: Incredibly light and strong Bitex hubs, Sapim CX ray / Lazer spokes and Alpina blue power self-locking ultra light nipples. 

These wheels offer significant aero benefits on the flats and descents, but critically enable us to build a tough, high performance wheelset that can tip the scales at well below the 1400 gram mark

With standard hubs and Lazer spokes they weigh in at 1370 grams for Campag and a tad more for Shimano/SRAM. By upgrading to Bitex Superlight hubs and CX Ray spokes you can reduce this to a stunningly light 1327 grams!

We also now offer a stunning stealth "graphite" rim upgrade option - The graphite anodising process gives the rim a total dark grey finish - including the brake tracks - adds about 45 grams but makes the wheels even tougher and looks fantastic of course!

Whilst you can get lighter wheels - we believe this wheelset represents the best balance between weight, strength and aero benefits. We would not want to go any lighter than this as one of these 3 elements would suffer if we did!

I bought these wheels after extensive research of other brands and they build their products themselves in Italy, not some mass production factory in the Far East, after having already bought a pair of Mavic ksyerium equipe s wheels that didn''t blow me away as a replacement to the stock Shimano RS10s that came with my bike. Anyway after a long and informative conversation with Andy- from Kinetic 1, I decided on the Ultralites. The lightweight and semi deep rims fitted perfectly with what i wanted and the price I could afford. I oredered the wheels trimmed with gun metal grey decals and the look very stealthy and upon opening the box i was really pleased their looks and build quality. Out on the road they spin freely and pick up is great and the cross winds were of no concern at all. I''ve not had them long enough to make comment on durability but what i can say is that my friend thinks they''re a great looking wheel and is saving to replace his rather heavy and less aero Mavic Cosmics. So in summary- I''ve had great service from Kinetic 1 and received an amazing product at a great price and fully recommend them.

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!
Dave Lumb - West Yorks
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.
Alan Joyce - East Kent
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.

Only had a couple of short rides on the new wheels, but first impressions are very good. They feel and ride much lighter than my Fulcrums and they are stiff with no flex or brake rub when hammering it out of the saddle up the climbs, where the lightness is really noticed. I have also hit a few pot holes ( hard not to around here) and no problems there so they are tough as well. Looking forward to getting a few decent miles in on them. Overall then .....5 stars , excellent value for money and to top it off Andy is a real good bloke and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Kinetic Two Mike

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
