We couldn’t quite decide what single label justified this do-everything wheel, so we named it the Race for it’s superlight weight, fast ride and truly amazing handling qualities. In fact, the Race started out as a gravel specific wheel, but performed so well for our UCI Elite Novus OMX Team, that we couldn’t do it such a disservice. So, combining elements of road, trail and cyclocross, the Race provides riders the opportunity to fully optimize both their endurance and strength for a truly world class result.

Product Description

Cross country races are becoming more and more aggressive, with rock gardens and descents to test even the most skilled riders. And because of its growing popularity, a number of race promoters are beginning to offer gravel specific races to allow riders to really test their fitness levels. The joy and excitement of heading out on a gravel course is that it combines the best elements of so many types of riding. While that variety is exciting for the rider, it places many different, and sometimes competing, requirements on the wheels.

While gravel specific bikes are based on a broad spectrum of frames – road, cross, trail – the Knight Composites engineering team developed our hookless and tubeless Race wheel on the 29” platform. By going with wider format, we were able to develop a wheel that is shallow, lightweight and incredibly durable. Perhaps the most versatile wheelset in our off-road line-up, it can also be used for cross country racing, cyclocross and heavier duty touring.

The Knight 29″ Gravel wheelset – engineered to:

> Cushion the impact of the roughest trails

> Offer a low weight alternative to other gravel rims

> Be your everyday wheel
