It was just a matter of time before the Uber Lords of carbon fiber would jump on the bandwagon of the roadbike, disc brake revolution, with a high-end offering of their own. And, indeed they have with their newly announced Meilenstein C disc wheelset.
The new Meilenstein C’s feature Lightweight’s unmistakeable full-carbon design, complete with DT Swiss 11 speed hubs, which are available with either traditional quick release skewers, or with thru axles that utilize the Swiss brand’s end caps, along with Centreblock hubs that can be configured into a 6-bolt set-up via the supplied adapters.
According to Lightweight, the Meilenstein C’s tip the scales at a svelte 1390g, which is pretty remarkable for a clincher with a 47mm+ profile.
Additionally, the wheels will be available in both Lightweight’s White and Black edition finishes, along with upgraded bearings from Ceramic Speed.
Price you ask? Expect to pay plenty of deutschmarks.

We are proud to present Lightweight’s newest product, our first disc brake wheelset: MEILENSTEIN C DISC.
Our new MEILENSTEIN C DISC wheelset combines german Engineering excellence with our long-standing, class-leading expertise in carbon fibre manufacturing.
This Lightweight innovation has been hand-crafted with our world-renowned passion for detail and technical excellence. Our unique carbon fibre hub design is the technological “cornerstone” of the wheel design, while retaining our classic and recognized MEILENSTEIN rim profile. The pentagonal hub shell shape reflects the need for a secure connection between the wheel and the braking forces that a disc rotor experiences, as well as the heat generated during the braking process. Our engineering team designed this special mechanical interface in Germany, with the unique hub shell guaranteeing safety, but also enhancing one of our main benefits over any other wheel system in the market:
Power transfer from the rider, direct to the road.
