Entire wheel view

With a Bontrager Race X Lite Pro 700 X 22C tubular tire glued on. My preferred tire would be something like the Veloflex Record, but the demo wheel was supplied with the Bontrager tire.

Observe the 8-spoke design, with the 4 spokes on each side spaced to alternate.

Hub and spokes

Observe the way the crossing spokes are bonded with carbon fiber.

Lightweight Obermayer hub and spokes

The carbon fiber is beautifully done, but the evaluation wheel I had showed some asymmetry at the hub edges, as well as a gouge in the carbon fiber.

Valve extender and rim

The valve extender section is elegantly built into the aero part of the wheel. Careful not to glue in the extender, or it can be very hard to change a tire.
