Knight 95 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240S Road Wheelset - Clincher

Knight Composites as a brand is relatively new to the cycling industry. In fact, the 95 Carbon Fibre/DT Swiss 240s Wheelset is the flagship of its debut line, so we admit to being more than a little skeptical about the impressive claims made by Knight's R&D materials. Considering that the company was founded by three veteran innovators of carbon and aerodynamics, we probably shouldn't have been. Knight's wind tunnel numbers bear the claims out and suggest that the Knight 95 may be the fastest wheel that we carry. The Knight 95's impressive aerodynamic benefits top out at 15 degrees of yaw whilst traveling at 30mph with a claimed -112g of drag force. That's right, negative. The effect of this negative contribution is a claimed savings of 22. 5 seconds over 40km when compared to its most aerodynamically-gifted competitor. Just by changing wheels. To put that in perspective, riding the Knight 95 could very well have put Fignon atop the final podium of the closest Tour ever. Of course, unless you have the engine of a Fignon (or a LeMond, for that matter), 30mph is a bit excessive over the course of a long event, but those advantages also trickle down to speeds in the mid-20s, so the 95s actually help propel you forward once you've spun them up. The inclusion of DT Swiss' smooth 240s hubs also goes some way toward countering the deep rims' increased rotational mass, meaning that You can hit those cruising speeds faster and with less internal friction. To achieve these almost comical test numbers, Knight developed what it's calling Trailing Edge Aerodynamic Manipulation Technology (TEAM Tech), which reinvents the aerodynamics of the wheel by shifting the point of interest from the leading to the trailing edge. This change in focus helped Knight design 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,...

    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.
