Lightweight Meilenstein Obermayer Tubular Schwarz Edition Wheelset
If top-of-the-range and world-beating lightness and stiffness is what you are searching for then the Lightweight Meilenstein Obermayer Tubular Schwarz Edition Wheelset is for you. Lightweight have devised a new layering system for this wheelset, which further optimises the application of fibres and resin. What this produces is an unbelievably light wheelset that also tops the charts in terms of stiffness and agility.
Both hubs come with CeramicSpeed bearings that add more propulsion, frictionless acceleration and in the end, this leads to more speed. The reduced rolling resistance increases your acceleration, making you more effective in getting you to the finish line faster. Lightweight have also rejuvenated their braking surface so that the stopping smoother and safer in dry and wet conditions.
The renovated front hub bolsters rolling proficiency whilst at the same time reducing the weight of the wheel by 25 grams and doubling the wheel's stiffness and agility.
For aerodynamics, Lightweight have looked to aerospace science to revolutionise their rim shape. The 47.5-millimetre rim depth makes these the perfect all-around set of wheels; as at home in the mountains as they are on flat TT course. The tubular compatible 20 millimetre wide rims are perfect for riders looking for the best possible riding experience with enhanced speed and acceleration. Carbon bladed spokes cut through the air whilst at the same time providing integral strength to the hub and rim.
Despite all of this revolutionary technology and lightweight stiff performance, what will probably strike you first about these wheels is the stunning looks. The black on black colour scheme and woven carbon fibre detailing means they look like they would be just as at home hanging in a gallery as they would blazing personal bests up the legendary climbs of the Dolomites.
Please note that these wheels are also available in a 20mm rim width option. To find out more information or to place an order, please get in touch.
