Lightweight Meilenstein SCHWARZ ED T Disc Tubular
Black is the new black. With black logos and CeramicSpeed bearings to make you even faster. This black beauty is now even faster and more elegant.
This wheel will take you a further step closer to success. We have added an additional innovative component to all wheels of our 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 our wheels.
How do you bring extremes closer together to redefine the characteristics completely?
Nothing could be easier.
We are consistently looking for the optimum. And when we get this certain feeling, that something could be better, we improve it. That‘s why we redefined our benshmark. So we focussed, we worked meticolously, we puzzled and we filed - on the design, the weight and the aerodynamics. The result: Even more control while riding and even better charateristics on the brake than ever. So we pushed the limits once again and created a wheel, that is really impressive: It is the best MEILENSTEIN, we have ever built. MEILENSTEIN. Newly defined.
We are proud to present Lightweight’s newest product, our first disc brake wheelset: MEILENSTEIN T DISC.
Our new MEILENSTEIN T DISC wheelset combines german Engineering excellence with our long-standing, class-leading expertise in carbon fibre manufacturing.
This Lightweight innovation has been hand-crafted with our world-renowned passion for detail and technical excellence.
Our unique carbon fibre hub design is the technological “cornerstone” of the wheel design, while retaining our classic and recognized MEILENSTEIN rim profile. The pentagonal hub shell shape reflects the need for a secure connection between the wheel and the braking forces that a disc rotor experiences, as well as the heat generated during the braking process.
Our engineering team designed this special mechanical interface in Germany, with the unique hub shell guaranteeing safety, but also enhancing one of our main benefits over any other wheel system in the market:
Power transfer from the rider, direct to the road.
