Time and time again Lightweight is confronted by conflicting objectives which don’t seem to be reconcilable. And it is these that spur Lightweight on and keep them on their toes. They’ve always followed the maxim of "find the best solution rather than make lazy compromises". This is exactly how Lightweight went about creating Gipfelsturm. They wanted a high-profile wheel that would set new benchmarks in toughness, crosswind conditions and comfort. The result is the perfect wheel for both strong winds and hills, a wheel that notably relieves strain on the neck and shoulders. Its maneuverability and steering precision are phenomenal, even in the most adverse weather conditions. The completely sealed design stops water and dirt getting inside the wheel.
The wheel that combines many contrasts and sets benchmarks in stiffness, handling and comfort. Now Lightweight is adding two further references to the wind and mountain wheel: Speed and visual appearance. The "increase" in speed is due to the CeramicSpeed bearings and the "improved" visual appearance to the totally black design.
CeramicSpeed ball bearings
This wheel 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, one set of Lightweight brake pads and aluminium valve extensions as well as a Lightweight wheel bag for two wheels. The rear wheel is equipped with a hub with DT Swiss technology and an easily changeable rotor for Campagnolo 9/10/11-speed or for Shimano 9/10/11-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.
