As the latest result of Lightweight's tireless R&D work in the field of full carbon wheels, Lightweight presents their 8-spoke front wheel. The VR8 represents a completely new state of the art spoke count and construction. With its only eight spokes, it offers significantly improved aerodynamics. The use of new carbon materials and an optimized manufacturing process, has enabled Lightweight to create a perfect combination of aerodynamics and lateral rigidity. The stiffness value of about 55 N/mm sets a new benchmark! Together with the new black Disc, the new wheel set provides the non-plus-ultra in the fight for seconds.

  • Carbon fiber Time Trial Front wheel in 700C size / 28"
  • Front wheel / VR8 with Lightweight hub
  • Laminated magnet (for bike computer)
  • Individually numbered read-only microchip laminated (important for the registration and ServiceUp) in every wheel 


Aerodynamics, stiffness and minimum weight are the three key factors when it comes to fighting the wind and the chrono in a time trial. Wether on the track, on the road or in a thriathlon race - when what matters is the very last quantum of speed, you need Lightweight's new black Lightweight Disc. On every time trial track around the world Lightweight's new 780g disc wheel sets the benchmark: top aerodynamics to avoid any kind of air turbulences, best uphill capacities on today's mostly wavy courses and best acceleration combined with an excellent stiffness of 90 N/mm. All this makes the new Lightweight Disc an unbeatable weapon when fighting for the last split seconds.

  • Carbon fiber wheel / Disc in 700C size / 28"
  • DT Swiss 190s rear hubs
  • Easy to change Cassette Body for Campy 9/10/11-speed or for Shimano 9/10-speed and SRAM 10-speed
