Automated production meets skilled craftsmanship: A new era has begun!
Since its foundation, Lightweight has set its focus on the professional workmanship of carbon for its world-renowned and numerous award-winning wheels. Craftsmanship and “Made in Germany” play an important role as it is the base for fulfilling and reaching standards of quality required.
Every day CarboFibretec’s (a subsidiary of the Wissler Group, just like Lightweight) engineers embrace the challenge of developing more precise and higher quality standard production methods for not only producing bikes, but also a variety of products in the fields of aviation and aerospace. Following intensive in-house research and development, Lightweight achieved yet another pioneering breakthrough in the field of rim technology.
The result: the WEGWEISER.
The 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.
All this makes the latest product from Lightweight much more than a wheel for the future, this wheel is the future – and the future can start right now!
