Lightweight Ventoux Gen-3 Wheelset Shimano Tubular Continental Competition :
The holy grail. Lightweight is generally considered to be the premier wheel manufacturer in the world. They have pushed the envelope on composite bicycle wheel construction since the later '90s. Lance Armstrong famously paid retail for his Lightweight wheels because the company didn't sponsor "anyone," not even a Tour De France winner*. All Lightweight wheels represent the best money can buy for weight and strength, the Ventoux, however, add an important third benefit, a low-profile rim shape to better adapt to an environment that is both mountainous and windy.
Mont Ventoux is notoriously both. This is awheel made for winning uphill races - this special demand out of the pro rides mouth was the first ignition of the first idea to develope the Ventoux wheels. After a long and hard time of research and developement with thousands of test kilometers and various lab testings of a huge number of different prototypes Heinz Obeermayer, the inventor and father of the first wheels made of 100% fibre material, came out in 2005 with a revolutionary new set of wheels - Lightweight Ventoux! It should be light, having a relatively small rim design, offer some more comfort without cutting back in terms of acceleration and stiffness. And they should look simply beautiful of cause. All this topics characterise our current Lightweight Ventoux III wheels perfectly. With a total target weight of only 999g per set of wheels the Ventoux are the reference for wheels with that kind of rim shape in the market.
These wheels are in excellent shape, have never been crashed on, and are as true as the day they left the factory. They feature DT-Swiss Internals in the rear hub meaning that you could, if you wanted, replace the free-hub body and end-cap with a Campagnolo compatible version. These wheels are also equipped with Continental's excellent Competition Tubular tires (in 25mm), these weigh in at an impressive 1.66kg with tires and cement (easily 550-600g).
