Knight 65 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240S Road Wheelset - Clincher

Knight Composites may be a new name in the cycling industry, but the 65 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240s Road Wheelset proves that the veteran design team behind the label knows that, with regards to race wheels, less is more. At a claimed 1,604g, the Knight 65 Wheelset compares favorably to the two industry leaders, gaining just 40g (but costing hundreds of dollars less) compared to one and losing over 200g compared to the other. Of course, the less-is-more truism isn't at all times accurate, as more millimeters in depth and more pre-production R&D result in more aerodynamic benefits and more secure handling. Plus, a little more DT Swiss 240s never hurts, either, on this model of the 65 includes two hub-shaped scoops. Whatever the metric, though, Knight was formed by three industry veterans who largely designed the standards of today and wanted a vehicle to push those standards into the future. To achieve this, Knight developed what it's calling Trailing Edge Aerodynamic Manipulation Technology (TEAM Tech), which reinvents the aerodynamics of the wheel. Instead of creating an aerodynamic leading edge, or even just an aerodynamic tire-to-rim transition, TEAM Tech designs wheels as part of a bicycle-wide system of aerodynamics that includes tires, rims, fork, and frame. This system began with Computational Fluid Dynamics software, proceeded through no fewer than two rounds of wind tunnel testing, and ate up hundreds of test models and multiple extra months to even produce the Knight 65's final test models. The result of the laborious TEAM Tech process is a cross-section that describes a tapered parabola rather than the sharp point of a NACA airfoil or the overly-rounded "U" shape of wheels that are dominating the market today -- and that Knight's founders were instrumental in creating. This new shape meets TEAM Tech's mandate by gradually widening airflow across the rim, which swells from 25. 5mm at the slimmest part of the brake track up to 28mm at the widest point be...

    About Us

    We get people who get outside - plain and simple. Backcountry began in 1996 with two guys and a stack of avalanche beacons in an apartment in Park City, Utah. Our roots were humble, but our vision was clear: to provide the best outdoor gear to connect people with their passions. Sometimes, even the path less traveled can feel well worn, so we make our own way. We owe it to ourselves and our customers to be innovative, to take risks, and to reach remarkable new territory.

    Today, we offer a broad selection of gear from premium outdoor brands, we back that gear with guaranteed returns, and our shipping is lightning-fast.

    We have deep roots in Utah, and we thrive on the trails and in the mountains surrounding Park City. Our corporate headquarters sits just north of old town Park City and within a quick pedal or a few footsteps of the Wasatch mountains.
