Knight Composites 65 Carbon Clincher Chris King R45 Wheelset
It's not often a young start-up brand hits the ground running, with a range that's at once simple, but comprehensive, yet that's just what Knight Composites have done. With the Knight Composites 65 Carbon Clincher Chris King R45 Wheelset this brand's ultimate offering for use by dedicated road riders, you can ride with assurances of the most extensively wind tunnel tested wheelsets ever, designed and made to the most exacting standards.
Built for speed, the stand-out feature of the 65 Carbon Clincher Chris King Wheelset is undoubtedly the unique shaping. The product of one of the world's most precise wind tunnels, Knight's engineers focus their attention on shaping their rims not to split air, but to neatly slick it around the trailing edge of the rim and direct it onto the down tube of your frame, giving you vastly improved efficiency and boosting the speed at which you forge onwards. With a design forged to reduce wind steer by improving the stability of the air flowing around your wheel, you can be sure to ride with renewed confidence on deep section rims.
Composed of Knight's carbon fibre, these wheels stand apart due to the sheer quality of construction. Taking a lead not from what other manufacturers are doing, but from what leading engineers suggest, all Knight's carbon fibre wheels are moulded using a proprietary EPS system, leading to a cleaner, smoother, and more uni-directionally layered structures in the carbon fibre, both internally and externally. The consequence? You can be sure of a far better level of strength from your wheel, making it far more reliable and robust in comparison with traditional offerings.
Weighing an impressively light 1610 grams per wheelset, the wheelset also boasts a double thickness brake track to further the reliability and longevity of this wheelset. Strong and allowing use with 25-28mm tyres, this wheelset is ideal for the modern racer. Chris King's highest quality R45 hubs at the core of these wheels, you can be sure of smooth rolling and swift engagement, giving you the rigid transfer of power you need to surge ahead.
