Lightweight Gipfelsturm Schwarz Tubulars
HOW DO YOU MAKE AN ULTRA-TOUGH, HIGH-PROFILE CARBON WHEEL IMPERVIOUS TO THE WIND?
Well, we make pretty light work of it!
Time and time again we are confronted by conflicting objectives which don’t seem to be reconcilable. And it is these that spur us on and keep us on our toes. We’ve always followed the maxim of “find the best solution rather than make lazy compromises”. This is exactly how we went about creating GIPFELSTURM. We wanted a high-profile wheel that would set new benchmarks in toughness, crosswind conditions and comfort. The result is the perfect wheel for both strong winds and hills, a wheel that notably relieves strain on the neck and shoulders. Its maneuverability and steering precision are phenomenal, even in the most adverse weather conditions. The completely sealed design stops water and dirt getting inside the wheel. This is why discerning cyclists opt for GIPFELSTURM. Wise choice, we think.

This wheel will take you a further step closer to success. We have added an additional innovative component to all wheels of our SCHWARZED: CeramicSpeed bearings. It doesn't matter whether you are a pro or recreational rider, this wheel will inspire you. Just imagine: on a 180km race like a Grand Fondo or Ironman you could save up to 9 minutes. Minutes that can make the difference between winning and losing. The reduced rolling resistance increases your speed, makes you more effective and gets you faster to the finish line. You will increase your performance by better gear. As a sportsman you will also benefit from the longer service life of the CeramicSpeed bearings. The perfect combination of speed and fun.
CeramicSpeed follows exactly the same philosophy as Lightweight: Ongoing development with a high standard of quality, best materials and continuous quality control. Mixed with the passion for biking and speed. That is what makes their ball bearings a product of the highest professional level and make them fit into our wheels.
