2016 Lightweight Autobahn Tubular Front Wheel

Product Description

General Information

Lightweight's Autobahn VR Tubular Front Wheel slices through the wind in two ways. First, it's 81mm deep. Second, it has only eight spokes. Eight. Four per side. Very little eggbeater effect here. Yet it's also Lightweight's laterally stiffest front wheel.
                  
The lateral stiffness is good not only for sprinters. But also for time trialists who want a stress-free time when groveling in their aero bars. A stiffer front wheel wanders very little; good for those races (basically all), when you're putting all your effort into propulsion.
 
The lateral stiffness comes with something else. A more aero front hub. And other thing. Weight. This one of the few occasions when extra weight can help.  The Autobahn VR is a wheel for flatter, straighter courses, the kind when you get up to speed a few times over the distance and want to hold it for long periods of time. The weight helps it roll better and it also helps with front-end stability.
 
The Lightweight Autobahn VR Tubular front wheel comes with a steel Lightweight quick release skewer for better clamping strength. It also comes with Lightweight-specific brake pads made by SwissStop, and a wheel bag. The rim has an embedded magnet for your speed sensor to pick up; cleaner, lighter, and better looking.
 
The Lightweight Autobahn VR Tubular Front Wheel is solid to ride but barely there to the wind.
