UD

Center Channel Hole This is a required option.

WITH HOLES: This is the traditional method. Holes are drilled in the center channel to allow the nipples to easily be fed through the rim. Tubeless tape is required to seal the rim.


WITHOUT HOLES: No holes are drilled in the center channel. Feeding the nipples through the rim is more challenging, but it allows for a tubeless setup without the need for tape. This kind of system is known as "road tubeless" and was made popular by Mavic. Some companies still refer to it as "UST style", however, UST is actually a specific interface between the tire and rim which was developed by a partnership between Mavic, Michelin, and Hutchinson.

Without Holes

Decal This is a required option.

Road rims use super light waterslide decals (matte colors). The decal is very thin and applied under a clearcoat so they are non-removeable.

Valve Stem This is a required option.

We include enough valves to cover your individual rim purchase. We use a lightweight black alloy anodized valves with an oversized concave collar for easy gripping. A rubber o-ring goes in between the rim and the collar to help seal the rim and match the contour of the rim profile. The valve core is removable so you can add sealant without removing your tire.

Tubeless Tape This is a required option.

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.

TECH

The RG922 is one of the newest members of the Flyweight family and part of our Falcon road line. With an asymmetric profile and 22mm internal width, this rim is designed for high performance ultralight wheelset builds.

Our Flyweight construction method uses a blend of Toray T700 and T800, and a thinner pre-preg for a lighter rim weight without reducing the actual number of layers in the layup schedule. Our spoke hole patching treatment removes unnecessary weight from the nipple bed, making this rim a truly light, high pressure-capable product with a weight of just 380g.

Philippe : A combination of 650b with 48mm tires at the rear and 700c with 38mm tire at the front is just right for gravel: good traction and comfort, slacker geometry. AR36 (RG722) rear and AR28 (RG922) front with 28 J-bent spokes, light (1440g/pair) should be plenty strong and durable. Good mid clearance at the back mud.

Neil 2020/07/29

Regarding the FALCON rim AR28 disc Gravel- I tried to build this into a set but could not select DT240s and the discount code did not work. It also would not let me select 28 holes for the front. What I need is 28x28 with DT240s (if discount code works) or DT350s if code does not work.


LightBicycle 2020/07/30

Hi Neil, We have new 240 exp hubs in front 24H/rear 24H or front 24H/rear 28H options. For old 240S hubs, we have front 24H/rear 24H and front 28H/rear 28H. Which do you prefer for AR28 disc wheelset? Thanks, Lightbicycle

I would like a rim the width and height like the "29er disc bike rims 29mm wide 28mm deep clincher for cyclocross and gravel bikes" But for use with 700c tires.


LightBicycle 2020/01/23

Hi Daniel, Thanks for your reaching out!For RG922, it is the same size as 700C. This rim is actually 700C size. You can mount 700C 23C~50C tires on these RG922 gravel bike rims/wheels. Don't worry. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Are these rims compliant with the ISO 5775 tubeless standard?


LightBicycle 2019/10/22

Hi Paul, Thanks for your inquiry. For our RG922 700C gravel rim, yes, it is in the ISO 5775 standard. It is okay to fit 700C*28C~ 700C* 45C tubeless tires. Don't worry about it. We have sold this model bike rims for more than 2 years. There are no tire fitting problem at all. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, What is the sidewall height for the GR922 rims? Specifically I am asking about the G Height of the rim as per ETRTO standards see: https://www.google.com/amp/s/janheine.wordpress.com/2019/04/10/safety-advice-non-standard-rims-and-rene-herse-tires/amp/


LightBicycle 2019/10/18

Henry 2019/02/11

Hello. I'm am interested in the RG922 29er Rim in 32H. I weigh exactly 275 pounds (125 kilos). Is there another rim you recommend, or is this one OK? Do you offer the RG922 32H in a version for a heavier rider/bike? Thank you!


LightBicycle 2019/02/14

Hi Henry, What kind of riding you usually do? What tire width you plan to use? Normally, road riding won't be too aggressive, so your weight is ok for RG922 gravel rim. With 32 spokes, the wheelset you built would be very strong for big rider. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Is there a hookless option for this rim?


LightBicycle 2018/11/29

Hi Rod, The gravel rim you are looking at RG922 (29mm wide, 28mm deep) only provide the hook version for now. If you are looking for a close profile rim, you can look at our RM29C06 (27mm wide, 24mm deep) or the newly launched scratch proof rim XC925 (30mm wide, 23mm deep). You can check out the rim profiles from the attachment. Details are as follows pages. Let me know if you have any questions or want quotes for a wheelset.
