Video: Unboxing the Lightweight Meilenstein Carbon Clincher Disc

Disc brake version of the amazing Meilenstein. Only £4,779...

Just landed at road.cc HQ are these stupendously expensive wheels from Lightweight.

These are the disc version of the already reviewed Meilenstein carbon clinchers. Our set here come with 12mm centre lock disc hubs although there is a 6 bolt option available. 

Lightweight Meilenstein Tubular Review

The rims are 47.5mm deep with a dated-looking 'V' shaped rim. 

The rim is also very narrow at only 12.5mm internally. This does give a very narrow profile, with Lightweight recommending either 23 or 25mm tyres.

At just 1,370g for the set, these will be ones for the climbers although there is a sizeable 120kg rider weight limit. 

Lightweight are know for their exceptional stiffness and these look to be going the same way with 20 pure carbon spokes in each wheel laced 2 cross. The spokes are also tied where they meet each other for that extra stiffness.

The price is also quite exceptional. At £4,779 they are some of the most expensive wheels in the world.

The disc hubs represent a step forward for Lightweight and it will be interesting for cyclocross riders to see if they release a tubular version. They are after all, some of the best race wheels going.
