When Knight conceived the 29 Race, they wanted one wheel to combine the design elements of the road, trail and cyclocross, be fast enough for race day, and durable enough for every day. This is that wheel.
In fact, the Race started out as a gravel-specific wheel but performed so well for their UCI Elite OMX Team, that they couldn_ put it in a single box. The wide and hookless rim is constructed using our super durable EPS molding process, giving it our signature smooth vibration damping and quick acceleration when you step on the gas.
A stiff, light and compliant multi-surface wheel, the 29 Race is fast enough for race day and tough enough to serve daily duty, where ever you ride gravel road, single track, or race track.
