Product Description

The disc brake was first launched in the mountain bike industry in 1997. Offering superior stopping power and lower susceptibility to debris build up, the disc brake quickly became the go to for mountain bikers and the envy of those riding on the road.

Disc brakes were introduced to the road cycling market a few years ago and, despite the ongoing deliberations within the pro peloton; are becoming more mainstream with leading bike manufacturers offering disc brake versions for many bikes in their line-up. If you already love the feel of a disc brake road bike, then you’ll certainly love what the 35 can do to enhance it further.

The Knight 35 Clincher Disc brake wheelset – engineered to:

> Provide a strong aero advantage over a standard disc brake rim

> Reduce rim weight versus our already low weight standard brake version by removing the over-engineered brake track

> Accommodate the loads experienced from disc brakes by increasing the strength of the spoke bed

In this comparison, we show a Knight 35 vs a standard OE box rim as the baseline (in this case – a Fulcrum 5). This chart shows what can be gained from switching from a standard wheel to a Knight 35 Aero. Observe that the OE rim never exhibits any aerodynamic gains at yaw and shows high drag even at zero degrees. The Knight 35 is both light weight and low drag – an unbeatable combination.
