Lightweight is proud of its company history and can look back on a decade of engineering excellence and leading expertise in the field of carbon products.
Back in the early nineties Heinz Obermayer developed the first ever all-carbon wheel in his workshop. Ever since then, manual work processes have been a key feature of the product portfolio, defying the tendencies of our hi-tech and digital world. The sharp eye for detail, the quest for perfection and highly precise work processes enable Lightweight to build the most exclusive wheels on which the best cyclists in the world have ridden to glory.
A large of current World Tour riders pay for Lightweight wheels despite wheels being supplied free of charge by official sponsors.
Notable race wins:
World Championships, Tour De France wins, Classics, multiple World Tour Time Trial wins, Rohan Dennis' Hour record and Ironman events.
