Random New Lightweight Goodies from Stronglight, THM and Lightweight Wheels

THM-Carbone lightweight Clavicula crankset now comes with compact chainrings and SRM power meter options

The usual suspects had an array of feathery new goodies on display at Eurobike.

THM-Carbone showed off a new SRM PowerMeter option for its Clavicula cranksets, as well as a two-piece spider that lets you swap to compact chainrings. Claimed weights for the cranksets with bottom bracket (w/o chainrings) are 470g standard, 460g compact and 420g for the SRM compatible setup as they don’t include the carbon fiber spider. Obviously, that weight is without the actual SRM unit.

Plenty more wish list stuff after the break, including a eight-spoke aero wheel from Lightweight…

The new Clavicula M3 has a two-piece carbon spider assembly that separates from the crankarm to let you swap in the SRM power meter or go from standard to compact gearing.

They make a wide range of bottom brackets for Shimano pressfit, Cervelo’s BBRight, BB30, PFBB30 and now even BB386EVO.

LIGHTWEIGHT WHEELS

Lightweight Wheels Aero Concept Studie 6-spoke carbon fiber triathlon time trial bicycle wheels

Lightweight Wheels’ 8-spoke wheel is a total concept for now. I asked if it was laterally stiff and they said yes…

Of course this isn’t the first octo-spoked wheel. Spinergy’s original Rev-X wheels use four paired carbon blades, but they were wide. And paired. If nothing else, these things sure garnered a lot of attention. No weights or specs were given.

STRONGLIGHT

Stronglight has new SRAM 2×10 compatible chainrings with Ceramic Teflon coating. Claimed weights are 107g / 28g for the 42/28 rings. Other sizes are also available. €75 and €36 MSRP. That’s not quite Carbon-Ti weight, but close. They also have some Dura-Ace and Ultegra compatible rings that match up to the cranksets’ design.

stronglight carbon fiber topped mega oversize headsets

New Mega Oversize headsets for tapered headtubes are available for several frame standards without integrated lower bearings. Weights range from 137g to 147g.

stronglight aluminum bicycle fenders

Lastly, they have a new aluminum fender to accompany their plastic ones. Still in prototype phase, so they’re developing sizes and pricing.

That isnt Lightweights first 8 spoked wheel either…They already make a tt specific front. This is just a new rim design.

The fenders look pretty poorly designed. Flat fenders allow water to escape out the sides which pretty much defeats the purpose of fenders. The mounting hardwear also looks like the same rattle prone junk you find on most plastic fenders. I’ll stick to my Honjo fenders instead.
