New Parcours FKT gravel wheels are aero optimised for Panaracer GravelKing tyres

UK aero wheel brand Parcours has a new aero gravel wheelset out. Called the FKT (standing for Fastest Known Time), it’s used the Panaracer GravelKing X1 in 40mm width as its partner tyre in its aero testing. 

Parcours says that most of the best gravel bike wheels aim to mitigate the negative impact of wide gravel bike tyres, with their more aggressive tread pattern than a road bike tyre. In contrast, it claims to have aero optimised the gravel tyre/wheel combo.
