Unbeatable in the fight against time - The Lightweight Autobahn wheels for your tri or Time-Trial bike
Aerodynamics, stiffness and weight are decisive factors in the battle against the clock. Our full carbon disc, weighing only 800g and with a stiffness of approx. 90 N/mm, offers you all the advantages you need to become even faster in triathlon competitions or time trials: Top aerodynamics to avoid air turbulence, excellent climbing characteristics on the mostly hilly time trial courses and best acceleration values especially out of the curve. The carbon spoke construction not only looks stunning, but also offers excellent lateral stiffness that you can feel on the road. Our AUTOBAHN disc has become an indispensable part of the triathlon scene. It is undisputedly one of the best full carbon discs currently available on the market. To complete the wheel set you can use the eight spoke front wheel from the Lightweight AUTOBAHN series or combine it with a Lightweight FERNWEG high profile rim.
In the end, every millisecond in the oval counts - The Lightweight Rundkurs Disc
On the track when it comes to 1/10 second, the stiffness and low accelerating mass are the means to success. Lightweight RUNDKURS is a 1165 gram light carbon track wheel with absolute cornering precision paired with ultra-precise handling. The RUNDKURS full carbon wheels have been specially developed for conditions in which inexhaustible athletic effort is to achieve impressive results. Our specially tuned disc construction absolutely withstands the demands of the oval. You won't find any other wheel that is as stiff and agile at the same time, enabling ultra-precise handling. Only the track oval itself will perhaps show you the limits. You will not experience the limits of RUNDKURS!
Every Lightweight wheelset is carefully handmade in Germany. This can lead to slight variations in surface structure and colour. This is a characteristic quality feature of this particularly high-quality production method. For more information we can be reached at 503-699-8665 or at Info@Lakeside-Bikes.com .
An ideal carbon wheel for triathlon should be light, stable and aerodynamic. The less weight a triathlete has to move when cycling, the more energy-saving he or she can realize. Disc wheels are unbeatable in terms of aerodynamics. Numerous studies prove that disc wheels have the lowest air resistance when the wind blows from the front. There is no air turbulence whatsoever due to spokes and a maximum possible sailing effect when the wind blows from the side is made possible by the construction of the disc.
However, a disc wheel (Disc) offers the full contact surface for wind, due to its design. Therefore, the front wheel and its rim height is of decisive importance in terms of the controllability of the racing bike. When it comes to comfort, you have to make concessions with a carbon disc wheel. Due to its design, the disc wheel cannot compete with an aero wheel with spokes. The enormous stiffness for more propulsion is at the expense of comfort.
The typical solution for a time trial bike (TT bike, triathlon bike) is therefore a disc in the back and a high profile rim or trispoke in the front.
The eight spoke front wheel from AUTOBAHN is the perfect companion for time trials or triathlons. The AUTOBAHN VR 8 is slightly heavier than the front wheel from the FERNWEG series. However, due to the slightly higher rim weight, it is less sensitive to external influences, such as cross wind. As a result, you will experience an even safer ride on triathlon and TT handlebars. In addition, the additional weight results in a higher gyroscopic force, which makes it much easier to maintain high speeds on flat terrain. With half the number of spokes compared to the FERNWEG, we still guarantee the same high stiffness.
