The New 24mm Meilenstein

Lightweight are known for carbon innovations and pushing the boundaries of super light wheels. For year now the Meilenstein has been THE wheel when it comes to stiffness, weight and desirability. Some changes have been subtle over the past decade, such as resin and carbon layers being added for better braking. However this is something much more radical.The new Meilenstein 24mm Endurance edition wheel set changes everything.

Launched in March 2018 the Meilenstein 24 E is the latest innovation from Lightweight. A new 24mm width to take a wider tires (Up to 32mm Clincher / 34mm Tubular) while adding more stiffness and still they are incredibly lightweight.

The Classic 20mm Width wheels stay in the range, for those looking for a leaner, narrower wheel that doesn't need such large tires.

Lightweight Urgestalt Disc Review

November 17
Cyclist magazine's Stu Bowers is a lucky guy, he gets to ride the world's best bikes all year round. Stu is also one of the most credible journalists within the UK cycling media, with a very respectable racing pedigree on the UK circuit. So his 'luck' is well earned. 

Stu's luck in this case came in when we sent down the first Urgestalt Disc in the UK for review in the magazine. Stu had ridden the first generation rim brake frame, so was aware of the lightweight ride characteristics.

The Urgestalt disc was designed as a complete system, wheels and frame designed in harmony together, something that's not lost on Stu in his review. The 56cm Urgestalt disc bike was reviewed with Dura Ace Di2 disc and a Lightweight Meilenstein C disc wheels. Complete bike weight was 6.7kg
