The 8-spoke-wheel in combination with the black Disc is the best choice when fighting for seconds. Triathletes and time trial specialists will be pleased about this light time trial combination with outstanding stiffness.
The Autobahn VR8
represents a completely new state of the art in the field of full carbon wheels. With its only eight spokes, it offers significantly improved aerodynamics. The use of new carbon materials and an optimized manufacturing process, enabled Lightweight to create a perfect combination of aerodynamics and lateral rigidity. The stiffness value sets a new benchmark!
Aerodynamics, stiffness and minimum weight are three key factors when fighting against wind and time. On the road or in a triathlon race, the black Lightweight Disc
is one of the fastest you will find. On every time trial track around the world this 800g full carbon disc wheel sets the benchmark: top aerodynamics to avoid any kind of air turbulences, best uphill capacities on today's mostly wavy courses and best acceleration combined with an excellent stiffness of 90 N/mm. All this makes the Lightweight Autobahn Disc be a weapon when fighting for the last split seconds.
CeramicSpeed ball bearings
The Autobahn wheelset as SchwarzED will take you a further step closer to success. Lightweight added an additional innovative component to all wheels of their SchwarzED: CeramicSpeed bearings. It doesn't matter whether you are a pro or recreational rider, this wheel will inspire you. Just imagine: on a 180km race like a Grand Fondo or Ironman you could save up to 9 minutes. Minutes that can make the difference between winning and losing. The reduced rolling resistance increases your speed, makes you more effective and gets you faster to the finish line. You will increase your performance by better gear. As a sportsman you will also benefit from the longer service life of the CeramicSpeed bearings. The perfect combination of speed and fun.
CeramicSpeed follows exactly the same philosophy as Lightweight: Ongoing development with a high standard of quality, best materials and continuous quality control. Mixed with the passion for biking and speed. That is what makes their ball bearings a product of the highest professional level and make them fit into Lightweights wheels.
The 28 inch carbon wheels are delivered with one set of Lightweight quick releases, brake pads, aluminium valve extension, pump adaptor and a Lightweight wheel bag for two wheels. The rear wheel is equipped with a DT Swiss hub
and an easily changeable rotor for Campagnolo 9/10/11-speed or for Shimano 9/10-speed and SRAM 10-speed. 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) in every wheel.
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.
The VR8 is also available as Black Edition
, Comp Edition
or Special Edition
with white Duraflon coating.
