“Highly sophisticated design with laminated spokes made in Germany. Unparalleled stiffness that gives rise to a very direct ride feeling”: With an overall grade of 1.7, the OBERMAYER EVO confidently asserted itself in the test by Tour against seven comparable models in the “racing bike wheel with carbon spokes and rims” category.
Extreme stiffness, perfect service: Lightweight won over the testers from Tour
With its extensively laminated spokes and wrapped spoke crossings, the OBERMAYER EVO can impress with excellent stiffness in particular, which its competitors cannot match (detailed test grades: 1.0 at the front and 1.3 at the back). The complex connection of the hub and rims of Lightweight carbon spokes was also praised – laminating of large areas provides for a connection that can reliably withstand even high traction. The OBERMAYER EVO did not fail to impress in the aerodynamics test either, scoring a grade of 1.7.
5 years warranty and crash replacement
The tried-and-tested Lightweight service was also commended: the generous crash replacement arrangement and free warranty extension to cover defects in material and workmanship in the form of a manufacturer warranty for a total of five years also stood out by comparison.
