Product Description

Knight Composites 50 Tubeless Aero Carbon Clincher R45 Wheelset

With a new rim profile making installation of tubeless setups easier and quicker, the Knight Composites 50 Tubeless Carbon Clincher Chris King R45 Wheelset allows you to take advantage of the benefits, including improved comfort and increased rolling resistance, and exceptional puncture protection. The 50m rim depth is optimised for aerodynamics and stability, while you'll remain comfortable on the longest days in the saddle. Chris King R45 hubs are top quality and provide an unmatched ride feel, and the entire construction is stiff and strong and suited to racing and tough training sessions alike.

With a 50mm rim depth to cut through the air at speed, the Knight Composites Tubeless Carbon Clincher Chris King R45 Wheelset will help you achieve your fastest performances. Designed primarily for aerodynamics and stability, these wheels utilise the patented new rim design to make tubeless setups more accessible and easier to install. These TLA (Tubeless-Aero) wheels have a unique centre channel and reduced wall height for simple mounting of tubeless tyres. The ‘hookless’ internal rim profile tapers in and locks down the bead, with a two-fold larger sealing surface than that of traditional 'hooked' rim designs. Another benefit is that the need for an air compressor is eliminated, and the tyres can be inflated via a standard track pump.

Compatible with both SRAM and Shimano 9, 10 and 11-speed groupsets, these wheels are suitable for many rider setups.
