The LP18 rim is particularly light due to its 18mm profile. It has stainless-steel spokes, sealed bearing hubs and double aluminium walls. Although it doesn’t have a machined braking wall, brakes can be mounted without problems.
It is a classical, elegant wheel that is good quality for money. And, although radial spoking is possible, we recommend cross spoking as it makes the wheel stronger.
The size is 700c, meaning it is compatible with all road-bike tyres. You can mount 23, 25 or 28 tyres and will need a 30mm-valve inner tube. And it is crucial you mount a rim strip between the tyre and the inner tube to reduce or prevent punctures.
Weinmann, an attractive brand born in Switzerland, has over the years become a great world brand specialising first in the manufacture of aluminium brakes and later of bicycle rims. It was founded in 1933 and during its evolution it has made important changes in its logistics and in the manufacture of its products. In its beginnings it was a brand dedicated exclusively to the manufacture of bicycle brake parts, and over the years it has specialised in the manufacture of wheels and spare components.
It is a brand that stands out for having a wide catalogue of wheels for bicycles with different diameters and for different modalities at a really competitive price.
