This is the "Ready-to-Roll" NEW version of our stunning K1-42s Wheels. Built up wiith black Sapim semi-aero spokes OR PSR AERO spokes - they are READY TO SHIP NOW with no custom-build waiting time! Available with choice of decal colours.

Alternatively If you'd like a set of these wheels custom built for you, and featuring your choice of SPOKE COLOURS etc then take a look at the drop down menus above for custom build options.

The latest updated version of our tried and tested K1-42S wheelset: Fully styled, faster rolling WITH NEW SEALED BEARING HUBS, NEW SAPIM AERO SPOKES and a slightly deeper rim:  Fully updated for 2017.

Not only does it have a higher spec than its predecessor (it now uses our superb 42 mm super Aero alloy rim and now includes superb Sapim aero spokes  -  The combination of these rims and spokes results in a superbly aero and superbly strong wheelset.

The new model K1-42S DUO differs from our earlier versions in another way too: The rims are now even tougher to maximise the strength and responsiveness. This is particularly useful to heavier riders of course but also to lighter riders in terms of ensuring the best energy transfer while cornering and most responsive acceleration out of the corners.

The K1-42s DUO wheelset is one of 2 recommended wheelsets for heavier riders. The paired nature of the drive and non drive spokes means that lateral forces are balanced more evenly than on a traditional spoked wheel (where the spokes alternate.) They are of course still ideal for lighter riders looking for a fast durable investment wheelset.
  • RIMS: 42mm deep  BLACK aluminium welded 6005
  • SPOKES: 16 SAPIM BLACK AERO spokes Front,  20 SAPIM BLACK AERO spokes Rear (paired X1 crossing)

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.

Reviewer: Mike Danny Hamilton from Plymouth   5 Stars
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.

Reviewer: Dale Hunt from Lincolnshire   5 Stars
I spent a while speaking with Andy before buying my wheels and I have to say he is a real gentleman, couldn't be more helpful. The delivery was fast and tracked at every stage too. The packaging was very professional and the wheels arrived without a scratch. I had them fitted to the bike straight away, they look fantastic and they ride as well as they look!!! The wheels are very sturdy, which is good as I am not the lightest rider... overall very happy and I will definitely recommend Andy and his wheels to my friends and fellow riders

Reviewer: mark carroll from location   5 Stars
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

Reviewer: James Curtis from Kidderminster   5 Stars
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.

Reviewer: Bob Gaylard from Peckham   5 Stars
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

Reviewer: john hennessy from Barnet, Hertfordshire   5 Stars
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 😊

Reviewer: Oliver Worsfold from Cambs   5 Stars
SInce i weight in at 230lbs, i was nervous about buying K1-40S 40mm aero wheels due to the low spoke count compared to my normal wheels. In fact, my clubmates were taking bets of 0.5-50miles before i broke a spoke. I am happy to say that after nearly 600miles of small hills (cambridgeshire!!), chaingang rides in the dark and clubrides through the potholes of cambs, beds and northants, the wheels are strong as ever and no problems at all. Do the wheels make me faster, difficult to say. Do the wheels make me feel faster.....DAMN right! Oh and they make a great noise freewheeling.....which i never do of course...ahem! Great communications from Andy, rapid delivery and cracking looking wheels. I can safely say i am well happy at the moment. Hopefully, it will be a long time before i need to access the repair / maintenance aspect of the service. I could not recommend these wheels strongly enough

Reviewer: ANTHONY NORRIS from ESSEX   5 Stars
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!!! Anthony

Reviewer: James Worsley from Huddersfield   5 Stars
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.

Reviewer: Craig Edmonds from London   5 Stars
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!

Reviewer: Michael from North Wales   5 Stars
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)

Reviewer: Eugene from Birmingham   4 Stars
Wheels have been great, light and fast. Not affected much by cross winds at all. Really pleased with the performance and the look.

Reviewer: Edgar from Bristol   5 Stars
Lovely wheels. Have definitely noticed a big difference and managed to knock 3 mins of my 10 mile time at Castle Coombe recently

Reviewer: Neil Burrows from Warwickshire   5 Stars
Great wheels. They have improved the times on my routes by minutes and look great as well. Get some, you'll not regret it!

Reviewer: Chris Brewer from Camberley Surrey   5 Stars
Great set of wheels at a great price with super fast delivery many thanks.

Reviewer: Gary from Bristol   5 Stars
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

Reviewer: Antony from Devon   4 Stars
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 !!

Reviewer: joe rodgers from Stainton   5 Stars
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!!!

Reviewer: Mike McCartan from Sheffield   5 Stars
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.

Reviewer: arthur Kelly- Pure amateur cyclist from UK   5 Stars
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!!!!
