Lightweight Wheels Adds Limited Edition Meilenstein Obermayer Gold Wheelset
In the 90’s, Heinz Obermayer hand crafted the first pair of carbon fiber Lightweight wheels in his workshop, and he continues to lead their special projects development and sits on the company’s board.
The tubular wheelset takes their and gives it a special Duraflon gold finish for four spokes, his signature and the serial number. Purchase includes invitation to a special factory tour in August and to their booth at Eurobike later that same month. Wheel weights are just 420g front and 565g rear (985g per pair) with 16/20 spokes. Despite the ludicrously light weight, they claim it’s the stiffest wheel in their range.
Each pair includes valve extensions, titanium skewers, brake pads, wheel bags and tire levers. Campagnolo and Shimano/SRAM free hubs are available. Maximum system weight (rider plus bike) is 100kg (220lbs). This follows their recently introduced Meilenstein clincher wheels.
Price? Well, if you have to ask… Seriously, we’ve asked, and we’re waiting to hear back.
