Product description

Season :
Code : B5001
Weight : 0KG

Since its foundation, Lightweight has set its focus on the professional workmanship of carbon for its world-renowned and numerous award-winning wheels. Lightweight engineers embrace the challenge of developing more precise and higher quality standard production methods and draw on the technologies used in their aerospace and Satellite production to bring exceptional stiffness, low weight control and overarching strength to their wheels.

Lightweight claims it held off on producing a disc version of it's wheels until it was happy it could deal safely with the heat build-up. The danger with a wheel made entirely from carbon is that the disc rotor might not stay rigidly fixed in the hubshell if the composite’s integrity is affected by excess heat - a disc rotor can generate 400oC when stopping from 60 to 0kph. To combat this, Lightweight has created a unique pentagon-shaped hubshell to combat any chance of rotational movement. The hubs look quite chunky, which means they may give away some aerodynamic proficiency, but it’s likely you’ll be too busy enjoying the thrill of the quick acceleration and deft handling to notice a tiny percentage of extra drag. The Wegweiser uses the same hub and spokes as the Meilenstein Disc but comes in at a lower price thanks to the semi-automation (and thus less time consuming) manufacturing process. Built as an all-round performer, the Wegweiser has a more modern, flatter rim shape that is 36mm deep and which can accommodate a tyre up to 32mm wide, making it ideal for long days in the saddle over tough terrain and as such it will appeal to those looking for the best wheel for endurance riding or those riding less forgiving road surfaces..

Following intensive in-house research and development, Lightweight achieved yet another pioneering breakthrough in the field of rim technology, the result of which is the WEGWEISER Carbon Clincher Disc wheel. Combining their unrivalled attention to detail and craftsmanship, Lightweight have achieved the same precision engineering from their machines as they do from their workforce, this speeds production whilst retaining the qualities that set Lightweight apart and ensure that every wheel is equal to the last.

The WEGWEISER not only proudly presents breathtaking statistics and performance values but the revolutionary rim technology applied to a semi-automated manufacturing process, combined with skilled manual craftsmanship has enhanced the wheels' precision. The modern rim width of 24mm, combined with a flat 36mm rim depth balances modern aerodynamic needs with precise handling and control offorded by the new direct connection between the spokes and the rim - all for a total weight of only 1450 grams for the pair.

The directly connected carbon fibre spokes achieve unparallelled precision control when the brake is applied and in addition the innovative pentagon hub system increases safety during braking. The 20 spoke front and rear design balances braking forces with low weight and the built-in DT-Swiss hub allows for a quick change to different axle standards.
