We’ve got some new wheels for the deep-of-pocket this week. If you’re sticking to the road, may we suggest the latest wheels from Lightweight, which manage to shed 130g from their predecessors? Yours for just £8,799/$10,895.

If you prefer gravel, DT Swiss has two new rim profiles to suit your riding style, each of which is lighter and more aero than its predecessor. A little less expensive than Lightweight’s offering, but still pretty eye-watering for a wheelset that’s going to take a hammering.
