LIGHTWEIGHT MEILENSTEIN OBERMAYER 11S GOLD EDITION
SKU : LWWHSB9001GE0CTSHWSP
Lightweight decided they needed to top their already impressive Meilenstein. They do it here with the Meilenstein Obermayer Limited Edition. It’s even lighter and stronger than the already crazy light and strong Meilenstein. And it’s rare, with only 99 sets available worldwide.
Here are the numbers that make our point. The front wheel weighs 420g. The rear 565g. 985g for a wheelset with 47.5mm deep, 20mm wide rims and only 16 front and 20 rear spokes.
The magic comes from their ability to manipulate carbon-fiber. When riding it, you’ll only notice how much easier it is to spin up, but otherwise, it’s the same Meilenstein, an all-rounder of wheel that’s light enough for long and steep climbing.
Braking is excellent, with a resin that doesn’t soften with heat and provides consistent braking in the wet and dry.
The front hub is built by Lightweight. The rear hub is also built by Lightweight but includes a DT/Swiss cassette body, splined for either Campagnolo or SRAM/Shimano 9/10/11-speed cassettes.
The wheel comes with CeramicSpeed bearings, four Gold spokes per wheel, Gold signature of Heinz Obermayer on the rim and a number indicating which set you are riding. A certificate is also included, along with: wheel bags, valve extenders, SwissStop pads, and Lightweight quick releases.
The only limitation on the Lightweight Meilenstein Obermayer Limited Edition Wheelset is system weight: the limit for bike and rider is 90kg.
