Glorious Gipfelsturms

We're really looking forward to opening the UK's first Lightweight Concept Store next year, inside our new Canary Wharf flagship store. In the meantime, we have the complete range of Lightweight wheels in stock right here in Farringdon.

These awesome full-carbon Gipfelsturm black edition wheels arrived yesterday, and were sold within hours of arriving... but I did manage to sneak them into the photo studio for a few quick snaps.

The "SchwartzEd" wheels have a distinctive all-black look (even the wheelbags have black Lightweight logos on them, rather than the usual white - now there's attention to detail!). But the difference is more than just skin deep - they also boast CeramicSpeed bearings for increased lifespan and decreased resistance.

With a shallow section and 20 spokes front/24 spokes rear, the Gipfelsturms are Lightweight's all-rounders - strong enough to ride hard, but only 1065g per pair. I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of these soon.
