Our testing inferred that the majority of aero wheels available place the design focus on the leading edge – the tire and rim’s outer edge. At first blush, this makes a lot of sense since research has proven that the frontal area has a significant impact on the overall aero performance.
When our engineering team began the design process for Knight Wheels the decision was made to look at the wheel not in isolation, as most manufacturers do, but rather as part of the bicycle system. As our engineers worked through the process, the data revealed that while the leading edge of the wheel should not be ignored, designing around the trailing edge could offer a far greater aerodynamic benefit – this lead to the development of Trailing Edge Aerodynamic Manipulation Technology (TEAM Tech). TEAM Tech focuses on how the air flows from the tire, to the rim, back to the tire, and ultimately to the down tube and the rest of the frame.
The result of our engineers’ knowledge, industry leading experience and hard work, are a selection of wheels designed to offer you superior aerodynamic benefit regardless of riding conditions. Whether you are trying to set a new Personal Best in a race, or leading the charge in the town line sprint, Knight Wheels are engineered to give you an aerodynamic edge.
