Few riders can put the power into a wheelset the way a track rider can. As the riders fly around the track at speeds great that 60 km/h, their powerful legs hammer on the pedals jumping the bike forward with each stroke.

New for 2016 is the Knight Composites track wheel. Designed using the same TEAM technology as our Knight 35, Knight 65 and Knight 95 rims, this new offering is designed to provide track riders with the strength, stiffness and aerodynamics they need to be first to the line every time.

The Knight 95 Clincher Track rim provides all the benefits of our 65mm rim, in a deeper, more aero format.

Pricing on DT Swiss 240 hubs, incl. shipping:
Knight 95 Carbon Clincher = $2,599 USD
Knight 95 Carbon Track Clincher = $2,899 USD

*All wheels include QR skewers, and brake pads + rim strips when applicable.

The Knight 95 Clincher Track wheelset – engineered to:

> Offer the strength and stiffness required for track riders by increasing the spoke count

> Add lift to reduce the watts required for the same result – provided by our proprietary parabolic shape

> Shatter your PB

This chart shows the remarkable aerodynamic performance of a deep rim. Not only does the Knight 95 completely erase its own initial drag at zero yaw (160g), it yields an additional -112g ‘sail effect’. At 15 degrees yaw, it has 45g less drag than its nearest competitor (4.5 Watts or 22.5 seconds saved over 40km) and 288g less drag than a traditional V-rim. K95 vs Competitors Legend: Company A = Market Leader 1 Company B = Market Leader 2 Company C = Market Leader 3 Notes: Front Wheel Only, 25mph, Strut drag removed, data normalised to Standard Ambient Temperature and Pressure Percentage wise, the K95 doesn’t improve upon its competitors as much as the K65 does. However, measured in absolute grams of drag it eclipses the 60mm class (-160g) with -280g at 15 degrees of yaw.

Frame results exhibit much more ‘scatter’ than wheel only results and are increasingly more asymmetric. Frame components themselves can vary in position no matter how hard you try to maintain consistency. The overall ‘score’ is more heavily dominated by the frame than the wheels. Nevertheless, our internal results show a clear trend that a Knight Wheel combo (60/60, 60/90, 90/90..etc) is a formidable competitor.
