I received my Kettlebell Concepts 32kg. bell a few days ago and had a chance to throw it around a bit. For those familiar with Dragondoor bells, it is very comparable in its dimensions, however the handle is a bit thicker. Some might not like a thicker handle, but i look at it as a plus for added grip training. My only other issue with the bell is the finish. It comes with a thick and smooth gray enamel-type finish which reminds me of something you'd paint a naval battleship with. The handle will have to be sanded as it does not receive chalk very well.

Other than that, it was a great purchase and i highly recommend it for those seeking cheaper alternatives to the DD Bells.

I like the handles on them too.
I've got 4 KBC bells, with another on the way.
Great value!

Where did you guys get your KBC Bells? I've got two 16kg from DD and enjoy them but there's got to be a cheaper alternative.

I also own two 16kg. DD bells, and although they are the "cadillac" of KBs, the KBC bells are definitely comparable and much cheaper. is their website.

I have a 16, 24, and 32k kettlebells from KBC, awesome bells! A couple minor issues though. The 16k bell ought to be designed so it's a little bit more proportionate (less weight in the handle, more in the ball), and they need to be consistent with the diameter of the handles. My 24k bell is noticably thinner than my 16 and 32k bells. But, it doesn't matter, they are amazing nonetheless!
