The Lightweight WEGWEISER not only proudly presents breathtaking statistics and performance values. Revolutionary rim technology applied to an 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, and the newly designed direct connection between the spokes and the rim, guarantee Lightweight`s renowned stiffness and handling characteristics at a total weight of only 1,495 grams for the Clincher version.
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 built-in DT-Swiss hub allows for a quick change to different axle standards.
