Product Description


This is the wheel that most heads will shake over. This is the lightest, stiffest wheel in the Lightweight line. The Meilenstein Obermayer Tubular Wheel does the impossible. Lighter and stiffer than the standard Meilenstein; the folks at Lightweight boast this is the lightest and most rigid carbon wheel on the planet. You should be able to do anything and everything with this wheel.
This is the craziness that is Lightweight taking the Meilenstein to 11. They were looking how to improve on their best. And they were able to. They changed their lay-up and resin. And they realized they could do more. They redesigned their hubs as well. The result is a 395g front wheel, 540g rear wheel, that accelerates better, has greater lateral rigidity, and even brakes better. At less than 950g for the set, these wheels are too light for the pro's. They give you an even bigger edge—and your friends won't realize it until you drop them.
Because this is the Obermayer, so named for one of Lightweight's founders, they come with Lightweight's titanium skewers. But the rest of the build is the same. You get the embedded spoke magnets, the Lightweight brake pads, the Lightweight wheel bag. And the Lightweight microchip (name another company that chips their wheels).
Lightweight strongly urges buyers to register their wheels on the Lightweight website within five days of receiving wheels. Each wheel has a unique ten-digit number that is encoded on a microchip embedded in each wheel. This helps you with both their crash replacement program and Wheelprotection program-and can come in handy if your wheels are lost or stolen. The first applies to all wheels and entitles you to 30% off a replacement wheel if you destroy one in a crash. The second is their insurance program, which means that by paying up front, your Lightweight wheels are protected for three years from any damage that might occur. Go here (http://lightweight.info/gb/en/service/registration) to read up and register.
Lightweight offers the Meilenstein Obermayer in their Weiss Edition variant. The spokes and hub are coated with white Durflon polymer for a glossy custom look. The coating adds about 20g per wheel, which still makes this a sub-1000g wheelset, and it's got more bling.
Lightweight Meilenstein Obermayer Tubular Wheel will almost feel like cheating, but cheating you won't want to live without.
