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 FibreDT 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 RD 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 while 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'll 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 focus 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,...
