The history of Lightweight wheels has largely been shaped by some of the world's top competitive cyclists. It was them who first used the revolutionary wheels at championship races and major cycling tours, thereby establishing the brand's reputation in the sport. Lightweight wheels have been available in their current shape ever since 1995, albeit subject to continuous refinement.
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.
