Product information


INTENDED USE: General road riding, Sportives, Tri & TT. This is are our upgraders "Do Everything" wheelset. Aero spokes, sealed bearings & great styling choices. Built with our trademark "DUO" spoke pattern.  Whether racing, training or even commuting they do the job.

Offered With Full 1 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.

The K1-33 Duo is the latest highly specified stage in the evolution of our best selling wheel ever! We've been selling the K1-33's for 10 years now and it improves each year. Commissioned to our own design, It is one of 2 factory wheelsets we produce. We feel the K1-33 leads the way in high performance road/tt/tri wheels at a sensible cost. The K1-33's do whatever you ask of them.

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.


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, es
pecially 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
peter creasey - Guernsey
Exceptional value for money, roll very nicely, very silent. They look great on the bike as well. Two reasons not to give them 5 stars: 1) I didn't manage a PB in the Granite Man Middle distance tri last Sept! 2) I can't see or feel anything, but there is a hint of brake judder from my front wheel. I don't think the braking surface is deformed, but equally have no idea why I am getting this judder. However it's not a problem and for the price I paid I am still delighted with the wheels. I use the same bike for daily commute, duathlons and triathlons. Andy also managed to deliver them to me in Guernsey very quickly when my pre Granite Man service identified the need to replace my existing wheels!

These kinetic-One K1 Deep Section Aero Wheels are excellent! I used to suffer often from have punctures as my wheels where pinching my inner tubes if I went over a bump. Now I have the kinetic-One K1 wheels I am able to ride freely with no punctures! These wheels are fantastic to ride on, When they first arrived the I was not sure how strong they where as they have minimal spokes, but they are much stronger than my other wheels even though they have less spokes. They look great on my bike and seem to help whilst riding downhill because of there aerodynamic shape! Kinetic-One are great the wheels came in 2 days and I did not have to pay anything for postage! The communication was great because I was updated and regularly and I could freely ask any questions I needed. One problem though, on the website it does not say the size of the wheels, they are 23 - 25 x700c. Thanks to good communication this was shortly resolved! Thanks!
Steve P - Norfolk
Great support from K1 during the purchase process. The wheels seem to have shaved time off my regular practise route, and also handled a couple of unexpected bumps in the road so pretty tough too. They do look great which is a bonus. Only had them a few weeks so cannot comment on longevity but all in all a really good value purchase.

I believe you’ve had a few of these to build recently as quite a few members of our cycling team have ordered these & swear by them. Nothing but positive reviews. I’ll get the other riders to send in their reviews as the Club Administrator sent out the video of a set being built stating ‘Bomb Proof Wheelset’ 😂
