Lightweight’s wheels are popular and highly sought after in both top end time trialling and triathlon.
The latest front wheel joins the existing successful FERNWEG line up. The FERNWEG VR 60, available in both tubular and clincher models, has a 60mm deep rim and is said to provide stable handling even in strong cross-winds. In theory, this should mean you are able to stay in an aerodynamic tuck for longer.Lightweight recommend combining the FERNWEG VR 60 with its existing FERNWEG 80 rear wheel. The tubular version of the FERNWEG VR 60 weighs only 625g and when combined with the FERNWEG 80 the wheelset weighs 1,420g. The clincher version of the FERNWEG VR 60 weighs an additional 85g.
The pricing is expected to be similar to the existing FERNWEG line up. Production has already started!
