Lightweight Fernweg 80 Tubular Carbon Front Wheel
With carbon fibre engineering and technology borrowed from the space satellite industry, the Lightweight Fernweg 80 Tubular Carbon Front Wheel is the absolute ultimate in carbon fibre wheel building, providing strong, aerodynamic performance with the lowest rolling resistances out there.
Making use of Lightweight's own brand carbon fibre, this wheel is built around a rim with a 79.5mm depth, making for a supremely deep wheel, providing top of the line aerodynamic performance and allowing you to forge forwards with impressive efficiency on that flat long stage or, indeed, on that all or nothing time trial. A rim width of 20mm externally allows for tyre widths between 19-27mm, and this front wheel is versatile and strong, transferring all your power without even a hint of flex.
Weighing just 845 grams overall and with a unique spoke pattern featuring bonded spokes to further improve the lateral rigidity of this wheel, and improving the overall strength for the rider going all out and at pace. Each spoke boasting a tensile strength enough to support 1.6 tons, this super strong, supremely aerodynamic wheelset is ideally conceived for the very best in performance riding.
Taking tubular tyres exclusively, and making use of a centre lock, 6-bolt adapter mounting surface on which to take disc brake rotors, this wheel retains a supremely strong breaking power, and allows for a further improved aerodynamic profile without considerations for a braking track around the course of the wheel.
Please note: This wheel is a thru axle and is recommended for use with tubular tyres exclusively.
