A unique wheelset concept With the carbon wheelset WEGWEISER by Lightweight a unique wheelset concept now graces the streets. Breath-taking data and values are not the only fascinations the new carbon wheelset WEGWEISER has to offer. Years of intensive research and development resulted in a breakthrough in rim manufacture: new, revolutionary technology of automated rim manufacture in combination with the manual work that is still necessary and important made it possible to achieve an unparalleled degree of precision in wheelsets.
The modern rim width of 24 mm, combined with a flat rim height of 36 mm and the novel spoke connections from in-house development guarantee the stiffness values and riding characteristics Lightweight is known for. And all of this at a total weight of only 1,495 grams in the clincher version. The directly connected carbon fibre spokes result in braking precision levels that have never before been achieved. In addition, the innovative pentagon-hub system increases safety when braking, in particular on long downhill stretches. The installed DT-Swiss hub allows fast adaptation to various axle standards.
Since its foundation, Lightweight has been working on the professional processing of carbon and is known worldwide for its wheelsets that have won several awards. The part of manual work and the designation ”Made in Germany” play a large role, as this is the only way such high quality is even possible. Every day, the engineers at CarboFibretec (a company of the Wissler group, just like Lightweight) accept the challenge of creating even more precise and high-quality production methods. Not only for wheelset manufacturing, but also for versatile products in space and aeronautics.
