Lightweight's Fernweg wheels are established names in time trial and triathlon competitions. Each time aerodynamics meets acceleration, stiffness and high speed, those speed weapons are present.
The Fernweg range now has a new member: The Fernweg 60 front wheel. Of course Lightweight offers both versions: tubular or clincher.
With the Fernweg 60 Lightweight extended the field of use of this range with the focus on better handling. The wheel stays unperturbed, even at squally crosswinds. The athlete can remain in the aero-position and can bring his maximum performance.
In combination with the Fernweg 80 rear wheels, every triathlon- or road bike turns into a speed-weapon. Be faster but with full control - safe the decisive watt - for the win.
The unique sandwich-construction of the Lightweight wheels is one of the reasons for the low weight paired with maximum stiffness and directional stability at the same time. The special foam inside enables minor laminate wall thickness, especially in the area of the spokes and the braking surface. Extremely high torsional stiffness of the rim is the result. Additionally the sandwich-construction increases the resistance against fracture and sound insulation. Therefore Lightweight wheels are less noisy and brake as smooth as aluminum wheels. The cohesive rim construction also prevents the ingress of water, which leads to more weight while riding in the rain.
- 60mm rim height
- 16 spokes
- 625g light – tubular
- 710g light - clincher
- 23% less lateral surface means less drag at crosswinds
- thus longer turns at the aero-position
- more controll - more speed – reduced effort on the bike – more reserves for the run section
- perfect symbiosis with the Fernweg 80 rear wheel
Fernweg front wheel 60 - arguments:
- optimized aerodynamics at crosswinds
- for the aerodynamic allround-road-use
- first choise for mountainous or very curvy and windy tracks
- also suitable for the usage in the high mountains
- redefined brake performance at dry and wet conditions
The 28 inch carbon wheel is delivered with Lightweight brake pads. The new Lightweight front hub offers more compatibility with narrow forks. With laminated magnet (for bike computer) and individually numbered read-only microchip (important for the registration and Wheel Protection).
All Lightweight products are the result of manual labor. Slight deviations in color or surface finish are characteristic features from this high quality manufacturing procedure.
Lightweight wheels offer different possibilities of individualization. We do not sell Lightweight wheels without consultation. Please contact us!
