Dubbing your brand ‘Lightweight’ definitely dials up the anticipation levels for any gram-counting road aficionado, but fortunately this Friedrichshafen-based company has already cemented their reputation for featherweight products. Their latest carbon wheelset, going by the name WEGWEISER (which translates roughly as ‘pioneer’ or even ‘guide’ in English), lives up to the hype with their innovative fully-automated rim manufacturing. The rest of the wheel-building process is still completed by hand, surprisingly done at their home in Southern Germany. Although the DI.A test crew only had access to an unrideable prototype version, the judges crowned the WEGWEISER with an award for their pioneering production method.
