The Knight Composites 27.5" Enduro wheels are designed to be the do-it-all wheelset that can conquer any discipline of mountain riding. Combining their expertly designed EPS-molded 433g carbon rim with Project 321's Boost spaced alloy hub, the result is a light and vertically compliant wheel with 30% more impact resistance and even more lateral rigidity than the competition.
Straying away from the traditional carbon fiber molding process, Knight Composites is the only rim manufacturer to use the Expanded Polystyrene molding process. Rather than using an inflatable bladder that gets left inside the rim, resulting in ripples and folds on the inner surface, the EPS molding provides a lighter, stiffer, and cleaner inner surface free of imperfections. With a 30mm internal diameter, the Knight 27.5 Enduro wheel can easily support tires up to 2.5" wide, while the 25mm of depth keep the rims light enough to charge up the steepest climbs with ease.
Paired with Project 321's Boost hubs, you get a lightweight, smooth spinning boost-spaced hub to make these wheels even more bombproof. Project 321 has made a name for themselves with their magnetic pawl-operated drive ring. Replacing the traditional spring, Project 321's magnetic pawls provide 216 points of engagement for nearly instantaneous engagement with less drag than the competition.
