Sapim Race – Our strongest and stiffest spoke. These spokes are suitable for heavy or extremely aggressive riders who need a stiffer wheel.
Sapim CX-Ray – The lightest spoke in our lineup is still quite strong due to the elasticity and amazing fatigue life.

DT Competition Race - All Mountain and XC spoke used by the Chinese location as a substitue for the D-Light (depending on availability)

Pillar PSR X-TRA 1420 - An inexpensive bladed spoke, great for road and cyclocross riding.

One 10 yard roll of tape will be included. It is typically covers 2 rims with two laps each or 4 rims with one lap each.The high tensile tubeless tape features a natural rubber adhesive that does not leave a residue on the rims. On mountain bike rims, one layer of 18mm width tape is strong enough to seal the access holes which makes for the lightest tubeless setup.

Teleport to the rim page.

The 38mm wheels are very popular amongst riders looking for a strong and wide carbon wheel. The 31.6mm internal width works well with high volume tires and the wide bead seat helps to prevent tire burping on tubeless setups. These imposing rims have a 32mm depth so you will get a very responsive wheel that can hold it’s line through rough terrain.


For really aggressive riders or those using the bike park from time to time, we have an HD version. The HD version receives an extra wrap of 3k carbon fiber for additional wall thickness and reinforcement so they can handle G-outs better than the normal version.

Hookless: Carbon fiber flows continuously over the bead area to provide the best impact resistance and a significant strength increase compared to a clincher rim.


Manufacturing process: Our air bladders are made from a special material which produces smoother walls, result in a lighter rim, and are completely removed without harsh chemicals. They are removed through the valve hole with a unique process so that the rim does not have to be patched like traditional manufacturers use. This significantly improves the strength of the rims. Read More about our process


Hand-Built: Each wheelset is painstakingly built by hand to tension within 5% variance. Each spoke's tension rating is recorded in our system, as is the roundness and lateral tolerance.


T700: Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.


Precise layup: Each rim carries its own layup schedule documents which are followed meticulously by the layup workers. Our Engineering team creates a unique fiber orientation which amplifies the desired riding characteristics for a given rim.


Angled Holes: Angled spoke holes allows the nipple to pull straight in line with the spoke for reduced stress. This results in fewer broken spokes and nipples.


U-Shape: U-shape profile spreads the force of impacts and creates a more robust product.


Bead lock: The small ridges on either side of the drop channel help secure tubeless tires in place. The bead lock makes it easier to seal up tubeless tires with a floor pump, and they are incredibly hard to burp.


Tubeless: While the rims are optimized for a tubeless setup with the addition of tubeless tape, they also work with tubes.


For Non-Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 3-year Standard Warranty.

For Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 5-year Pro Warranty as standard and an upgraded optional lifetime Premium Warranty with minimum charge.

Crash Replacement: It is applicable with the same period as the warranty time range that you purchased for the rims with 10% /25% discount for Non-Pro series /Pro series.

Hello, Wondering if you can do the new graphic decal in a special order color to match my frame color. I'm looking to match YT Industries new "Storm Grey" frame color. How much extra is a special order color and how much is shipping for a wheelset to Hong Kong?


LightBicycle 2018/05/07

Hi Jamie, Could you kindly provide the color code for us so we can make the closest decal? It's very hard for us to make a correct color only by photos. Pantone color code would be great!

Is that possible? I didn't see an option to mix & match the version on your online order form. Thanks, Scott


LightBicycle 2017/04/20

Hello Scott, Thanks for your inquiry. The max weight limit for WM29C14 all mountain wheels is 140g. Don’t worry, the weight limit is just an approximate estimation. If you take normal all mountain & enduro riding, the AM version is strong enough for your riding. If you ride aggressively (with lots of big jumps), please go with HD version. The HD version has extra layers for increased stiffness and sidewall reinforcement. Ideal for large and aggressive riders. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, Considering purchasing a built up set of your 29C14. The weight limit you have on that wheel's description page is 140KG. Is that the weight limit for the standard all mountain build? Or is that the weight limit with the heavy duty build? My riding weight (with gear/camelbak etc) is 92kg. So I just want to be sure which is the right build for me. Thanks.
