As more and more companies come forward with their own iteration of performance tuned carbon components for race enthusiasts, it becomes more difficult to sift through the endless stream of false promises, or down-right misleading results. One company stands out however, as a beacon of genuine innovation. Although a new name in the cycling community, Knight Composites is a powerhouse of industry hardened professionals with many years of combined experience at the forefront of bicycle component manufacturing. Hailing from some of the most renowned carbon fiber manufacturers on the planet, such as ENVE, Cervelo, and Reynolds, the unique team at Knight Composites is a powerful force with the ability to create some truly impressive components.
In an attempt to go above and beyond the current standard for aerodynamic carbon wheels, Knight Composites set out to not only make a great rim, but to make the most aerodynamic rim in the world. No easy task with a market saturated in a multitude of carbon fiber manufacturers. By looking at the problem of aerodynamics from a different angle, Knight Composites was able to yield an impressive outcome. While most carbon rim manufacturers focus of the “leading edge” of the wheel for aerodynamic refinement, Knight chose to focus their attention on the “trailing” edge of the wheel. By refining the trailing edge of the wheel, the way each rim interacts aerodynamically the frame and rider can be fine tuned and perfected for real world results.
The Knight 35 rim is designed to be the ideal all around rim for those who desire aerodynamic performance, as well as low weight. With a shallower profile than other carbon rims, the Knight 35 is a great choice for enthusiasts and pros alike who find themselves consistently climbing steep ascents and battling monstrous headwinds.With an outstanding feel over all road conditions and climates, the Knight 35 is sure to outperform many of it’s competitors. With each rim in the Knight series being rigorously tested well beyond typical European safety standards, Knight is able to ensure the durability of their products, and back each rim with a 5 year warranty against defects.
