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. 



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 85 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!
  • RIMS: 30mm deep semi-aero - Aluminium welded 6005
  • SPOKES: SAPIM cx ray spokes Front Radial & Rear 2 cross
  • HUBS: BLACK Novatec light sealed bearing / Or upgrade to Bitex 6 Drive Superlight
  • QR: Forged aluminium black Quick Release skewers (Supplied with all hubs except Bitex)​
  • WEIGHT: BITEX RAF12/RAR12 HUBS / Sapim Lazer spokes :  1370grams (campag freehub) 1387grams (Shimano/SRAM freehub)
  • WEIGHT: BITEX RAF12/RAR12 HUBS / CX ray spokes 1350grams (campag freehub) 1367grams (Shimano/SRAM freehub)
  • WEIGHT: BITEX RAF10/RAR 12HUBS / CX Ray spokes 1327 grams (campag freehub) 1339 grams (Shimano/SRAM freehub)

My mate Stuart goodliffe bought a pair of these last year after riding them for thousands of miles with no problems whatsoever I decided to purchase a pair and iv got got to say I'm glad I did these run so smoothly and are lightweight great for straight roads and hill climbing what a bargain for a pair of lightweight wheels and good quality,I recommend these to anyone looking at purchasing a good pair of wheels at a affordable price why pay 700-800 when u can pay half that for these!

I would give my new wheels a six if I could! They are quite simply the best road wheels I have ridden. I previously had 50mm full carbon wheels on my Mekk which I struggled to get on with. They always felt unstable especially when out of the saddle giving it loads and we're difficult to keep up to speed. Well, it is the complete opposite with the K1's, I can now explode up hills with less effort and can maintain better speeds over longer distances. I have beaten most of my best times on Strava and by a long way on some and I'm nowhere near as fit as I can be due to just coming back from a broken collarbone. A lot of that is down to the wheels. They are also lighter than my carbon wheelset and quieter! This is my second pair of Kinetic wheels and probably won't be my last. They are just so well made, extremely durable and look fantastic. Well done Andy and the team, keep up the good work Clint

Coming from stock Alexrimms DA22 to these is a massive transformation to a 2009 GT Series Three. Had these wheels just over 6 months now. K1's spin up nice and easy, holding the pace without complaint. Instantly saw average speed jump by 3-4km/h. Rode nicely along national cycling route 23 in the Isle of Wight which is not all tarmac and they stayed true too. They are certainly up to to a daily ride on British roads. Riden with Michelin Pro3s with Schwable light tubes. Tricky to get on/off the wheel following 2 flats but that is down to the tyre. About to try Conti GP4000s with Conti Race 28 Light tubes. Seem to be a lot easier to get on and off. Highly recommend these wheels. Excellent communication and discussion with Andy regarding other wheelsets in similar price brackets. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair of these for race only.

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

I can only add to all the good things said about these wheels. Tremendous.

Reviewer: Gary from Mallorca   5 Stars
Very pleased. Strong, stiff, fast - all I need. 1000 km under my belt with them now.

Reviewer: Mike Farrugia f from Stroud , Gloucestershire   5 Stars
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

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.

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.

Reviewer: Luke from Devon   5 Stars
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!!!!!

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 .

Reviewer: Dan from Loughborough   5 Stars
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!

Reviewer: Stuart Goodlffe from Peterborough, England   5 Stars
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.
