Lightweight Meilenstein C clincher (Lightweight)
Lightweight say that by using new carbon fibre composites and methods of construction, they can make the wheels even stronger than the current Standard IIIs. Although with a claimed weight of 1180g/pair for the 16/20 spoke front/rear Meilenstein C, they’re actually 100g heavier than the Standard III Cs that we reviewed. Make of that what you will but Lightweight say the Meilensteins have a greater resistance to heat build up on the rim and a harder wearing brake surface, which is good news for riders.
The other good news is that the upgrade won’t add any more onto the price of the wheels, although at €3830 (EU price, excluding Germany where they are cheaper) they are still very much premium items.
