Knight 95 Clincher DT Swiss 240 S
Used by pro and amateur triathletes and time trialists for maximum speed and watt savings at all yaws, the Knight 95 clincher wheelset offers unrivalled aerodynamics with dynamic and dependable handling.
Throughout the development process of our wheels, lead engineer, Kevin Quan, works closely with his alma mater, the University of Toronto’s Institute of Aerospace Studies (UTIAS). Working with Dr. Phil Lavoie, Associate Professor with a PhD in Aerodynamics, and a number of graduate students the team rigorously tests and analyzes our wheel designs, utilizing no less than three wind-diverse wind tunnels, placing Knight squarely at the forefront of aerodynamic research.
Our design process begins with computer models using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to develop the initial shapes. We then utilize a rapid prototyping process to test the designs in a small-format wind tunnel in the UTIAS labs. This allows us to manipulate the rims on a micro scale—perfecting even the most miniscule details of our shapes.
We are the only rim manufacturer implementing an Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) layup and molding process to produce our rims. This cutting edge process combined with aerospace-grade Toray carbon fiber—the same material used in Boeing’s 777 aircraft—allows us to produce a lighter, stronger, more reliable and more precisely constructed rim than any other manufacturer.
