The new MEILENSTEIN 24E: the consistent development of the legendary carbon wheelset with a wider rim (24mm) by the German exclusive manufacturer Lightweight.
Lightweight's MEILENSTEIN has not only written race bike history and reached top scores in any test it entered - Over the past years it dominated every test for clincher wheels. And now this allrounder wheel has received an update featuring new geometry and all-new layer structure.
MEILENSTEIN 24E is even stiffer than its predecessor. the rim width increased from 20 to 24mm and now allows the use of tires ranging from 23 to 32mm. The result is more comfort, lower rolling resistance, and improved cornering abilities. Furthermore, the Lightweight engineers managed to reduce the weight of the clincher version to 1290g - despite the wider rim. The outstanding stiffness to weight ratio is unmatched among full carbon clincher wheels.
High heat resistance and durability
The unique carbon matrix features optimized fiber angles, further reducing the probability of heat damage due to braking. This not only vastly benefits the durability of the rim but makes MEILENSTEIN 245E the safest full carbon clincher wheel on the market.
The acceleration values are unparalleled thanks to continuous CFK spokes linked directly to the hub as well as ta tensible load of up to 1.5 tons. This allows for direct power transition without any energy loss and makes Lightweight wheels barely need to be centered.
MEILENSTEIN 24E proves to be an allrounder wheel with exceptional braking performance in both, wet and dry conditions - it also performs well on mountainous roads.
MEILENSTEIN 24E is available as a clincher and a tubular version and allows for a total system weight of 100kg (and up to 120g with the 20 spokes version). For riders that prefer classic rim widths, there is the MEILENSTEIN 20C featuring a 20mm width. The production of the new wheelset remains the same: in usual Lightweight manner, every set is manufactured by hand in Friedrichshafen. The MEILENSTEIN wheels are available NOW.
