Knight Riders kill it at Kona World Champs

Just how do you put into words a team effort that results in all four of your athletes killing it on the world stage that is the Ironman World Championships? Heather Jackson, 1st American woman and 3rd overall; Ben Hoffman, 1st American man and 4th overall; Matt Russell, 3rd American man and 12th overall; and Jesse Thomas pulling off an incredible 16th overall in his first IM Worlds. Kudos to all of our pros and age-group Ironmen and Ironwomen – you did us proud.

To share a podium with the worlds best athletes is nothing short of amazing…but then…I have to take my hat off to the entire global team at Knight Composites, because it is exactly this teamwork and commitment that that binds us to make the fastest wheels for the fastest athletes. We are still the new kids on the block…just with more wrinkles than most kids…but today we have shared the top men’s and women’s results with our friends and industry leaders Zipp, DT Swiss, Shimano, HED, Bontrager, Mavic and Citec. In an ocean of brands, I believe we just joined you as a bigger fish, and we’re pretty proud of that.

Congrats to all of our bike industry colleagues who shared such an amazing day and, of course, to our pro and age group athletes, without whom we would have little to continue pushing the envelope for.

Thank you guys, for making this life incredible.
Beverly Lucas, CEO, Knight Composites
