This high end carbon wheel has been designed for all who like it even faster and lighter. The DT-Swiss
rear hub combined with a special made extra light layer construction at the rim bring the weight down distinctly. The basics for developing the Obermayer wheels have been a demand from one of the leading pro tour teams at this time for having a uphill only wheel. Lightweight did that wheels and named them L´Alpe d´Huez. These wheels were used especially at the uphill time trial during the Tour de France 2004 with great success. The further developments out of this super lightweight wheels ended in the current Lightweight Obermayer. The ideas while developing the uphill only wheels and all this innovations ended up in a super light and aerodynamicly optimized wheel perfectly made for real competitions with absolute top performance and a remarkable stiffness. The Obermayer wheels offer nearly the same stiffness like the Standard wheels, in spite of saving more than 100g of weight!
The most important optical and technical feature, that makes the Special Edition wheel so unique is the revolutionary white Duraflon-coating
. It is not a simple wet paint but a real special coating that is stoved into spokes and rim. This Fluropolymer matrix is absolute intrinsically tied to the wheel and known for its unbeatable durability against UV radiation and other atmospheric attacks. Thanks to the Duraflon coating the Special Edition Lightweight wheel is facing an extremely longlife, scratch resistant and unbelievable flush surface. With approx. 20 grams additional weight.
In bike business Duraflon is a premium coating, that is used by professional cycling teams.
