This high end carbon wheel has been designed for all who like it even faster and lighter. The Lightweight front 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 an 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 aerodynamically 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!
Lightweights best wrapped in black now: MEILENSTEIN OBERMAYER as SchwarzED is even more focused on performance – not only because Lightweight optimized the rim layup by inventing and using new production processes and optimized fiber flow of newest state of the art carbon. They also added CeramicSpeed ball bearings to increase speed even more. Because they want their black beauty to be even faster and feeling more agile.
