AUTOMATION MEETS MANUAL LABOR:
A NEW ERA BEGINS!
Since its inception, Lightweight has been dealing with the professional processing of carbon for its globally renowned and award-winning wheels. The topic of manual work and made in Germany plays a major role, because only this way can such a high quality standard be fulfilled and achieved.
Every day, CarboFibretec engineers (as well as Lightweight, a Wissler Group company) face the challenge of developing more precise and high-quality production methods. And not just for wheel production, but also for a variety of products in the aerospace and aviation sectors. After years of intensive research and development, a new breakthrough in rim production was achieved.
The result: The WEGWEISER.
The WEGWEISER not only offers breathtaking data and values. A new and revolutionary technology with an automated production of the rim in combination with the still needed and important manual work increase the degree of precision of the impeller.
The modern rim width of 24mm, combined with a flat 36mm rim height and the in-house developed and novel spoke connection guarantee the Lightweight typical stiffness values and driving characteristics with a total weight of only 1,495 grams in the Clincher version.
An incomparable braking precision is achieved by the directly connected carbon fiber spokes. In addition, the innovative Pentagon hub system increases safety during braking, especially on long descents.
The installed DT-Swiss hub allows a quick change to various axle standards.
That's why the latest Lightweight product is not just a wheel of the future,
it's the future - and it's starting right now.
