In 1971 our founder, Alan Uke, started Underwater Kinetics out of his dorm room at UCSD and it has been his labor of love ever since.
In 1974, we were the company that invented the high-powered, small flashlight, revolutionizing the world of hand held lights. Our products continue to deliver the most cutting-edge technology, rugged durability, and superior performance.
Only UK combines long-lasting reliability with ground-breaking design and ideas. We continue to do what we’ve always done best: innovate technology that raises the bar and blazes the path. Smaller. Lighter. Brighter. Better. It’s what we’re all about.
