  • 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.

  • Wider
    The wide profile offers improved aerodynamics, better handling in crosswinds condition and faster riding.
  • U-shape
    The aerodynamic shape makes road tubeless rims lightweight but still stiff, keeping them stable in cross winds.The advantages of the U-shaped Road bike rim 700C
  • Tubeless ready
    beadlock design making this light weight road rims better tubeless setup and better sealing.
  • 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.
  • 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. The disc rim features a separate layup that removes access material to create the lightest rim possible without compromising its strength.
  • T700
    Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.

steve becraft : I did a few group rides and I got a lot of compliments on the wheels.
Look695UK Edition 100miles : I agonized over what wheels to put on this frameset for months. I wanted carbon and tubeless. There are not many to choose from. I have always built my own wheels, I ran a shop for almost 20 years and have built hundreds of wheels over the years. I chose these as several of my friends run their carbon MTB rims and have been flawless. I opted for these purely based on the timely responses to all of my questions. I built them up over a snowy weekend. Laced them with different color nipples untill I decided on red alloy nipples. Sapim CX-Ray Aero spokes on Hope Hubs ( love Hope, have everything they make on all my bikes) Front went together easily, the rear was a pain. I had a hell of a time making it perfectly round. I go to 0.5mm on my truing stand, and had a hard time meeting that number. Once built, I was very impressed with the weight, 1459g for the pair. They look fantastic on the bike, and I'm now toying with building up a second set in the 45mm depth. Then I can switch them out between my 2 road bikes. ( my other is a custom Titanium) As for the ride, I have only put 100 miles on them, I am running Schwalbe Pro One 700x25C tires with stans sealant, orange seal rim tape and WTB ally valve stems. The rims are 25mm wide, this actually pushed the tire out to 28.4mm width. So this makes the ride very plush, but without the squishyness I feel on my standard conti GP4000's. The overall feel of the bike is of speed, yet with a layer of comfort I have never felt on a road bike before. The wheels are stiff ( I weigh about 160Lbs ) super responsive, no flex, and using Reynolds cyro pads, no howling from the brakes. Infact the braking is excellent, although I have yet to try them in the rain. Of course it is still early days, but overall I am very impressed with the product and would absolutely recommend anyone to try them.

I'm interested in purchasing they U Shape 45mm rim (20h) and U Shape 55mm (24h) rim in 25 wide to build up with DT Swiss 240 hubs that I have already. I would like to use the Sapim CX Ray spokes for this build. I would like to get the spokes from you. Is there something specific you need to know about the DT Swiss 240 hubs tht I have so you can provide me the right spoke length? Also what will cost be for Sapim CX Ray spokes? Thanks, Adam

Hi Adam, Quotation is as below. Please check and let us know if there is any questions. For spoke length, we can get it for you can provide your hubs specs. --Rims: Front RRU45C02, clincher, 25mm wide, 45mm deep, UD, matte, 20H is USD170 each Rear: RRU55C02, clincher, 25mm wide, 45mm deep, UD, matte, 24H is USD178 each. --Spokes: A pair of Sapim cx-ray is USD2.7 (one spoke and one nipple) Thanks, Lightbicycle

Good evening, Are the prices I'm seeing in my cart in USD or AUD? Thank You Trevor

I have a rear hub with an asymmetric spoking pattern - 16 spokes on the drive side and 8 spokes on the non-drive side. Can the angled spoke drilling be done to accommodate that (i.e. a 2:1 ratio of left-to right holes?).
LightBicycle : (2017-07-11)
Hello Sir, It is okay to drill 2:1 pattern for you. Are all the 24 spoke holes evenly spaced on rims? For attached two 2:1 drilling, which do you prefer? Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'd like to build a 45mm U shaped wheel (24 holes) with a Powertap GS or G3 hub. If I order the rim and spokes through you, would you be able to supply spokes at the correct length so I can build it out? Thanks, Tyler
LightBicycle : (2017-04-11)
Hello Tyler, Thanks for both of your support. Currently, only Novatec and DT Swiss non-disc hubs are available, not Powertap hubs. Sorry about that. Or you can order the rims only and build the wheels at your local shop. Then you can get the hubs you like for wheels building. Does that work for you? Thanks, Lightbicyle

Hi there I have a pair of ZIPP 404 (60mm) 2008 clincher wheels. The rear rim split some time ago, had it repaired but now plan to replace the rims. After looking through your website, I am thinking of replacing them with the U shaped 45mm depth clincher rims. Will have a chat with the pro at the local cycling shop, but do you supply spokes that are compatible with ZIPP hubs? Moreover what size tyre is suited for these rim, 25mm
Light-Bicycle : (2016-10-25)
Hello Joao, Thanks for your inquiry. Our U45mm rims will work with ZIPP wheels. Due to the complexity and variations with calculating spoke lengths, we cannot guarantee the spokes will be the perfect length for your wheels. For this reason it is best to source the spokes locally, however we can also sell them if they cannot be purchased locally. Also, please confirm the spokes length with your local builder, then we will check if we have the spokes length in stock. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Hi, Is the hole is oriented so yes can for mounting 2:1 ? You can have sapim super cx-ray and cx-sprint ? TY, Damien.
Light-Bicycle : (2016-10-13)
Hello Damien, Thanks for your inquiry. Our rim is with angle hole drilling. For 2:1 drilling, we have to manufacture your rims separately, and make the rims with 2:1 drilling accordingly. Please find attached pictures of this special drilling, which do you prefer? Recently, only Sapim cx-ray is available, not Sapim cx-spint. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Hi: I am looking for a 25mm internal width carbon 700c rim for disc brake. 35mm to 45mm deep and tubeless. Enve are now making them - do you have plans to make them too?
Light-Bicycle : (2016-10-14)
Hello Panda, Sorry for the late reply. We were on National Day vacation during Oct 1st ~ 7th. Yes, we have discussed with our engineers and will have a plan to manufacture the wider road rims for disc brake. I will keep you posted on this new rim. If you need the rims urgently, our 30mm outer/ 24mm inner 29er mtb rim is suitable for cyclo cross bike also. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Dear Sirs, I've read about the soon to be realeased 26 mm wide U-shaped road rim. I understand that it's not yet ready but as you are already testing prototypes I'm sure the dimensions are already fixed. Would you mind giving us the inner width, outer width and depth of that rim. And what's your target weight for this rim in a 45 mm depth? Thank you
Light-Bicycle : (2016-08-09)
Hello Horst, Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, our new 26mm wide U shape high-end road rims will be available in next month. There will be 3 kinds of depth, and one of rim depth is between 45mm-55mm. We will keep you posted on this and email you the rims profiles when they are ready. Thanks, Light-bicycle
Loren : (2016-11-15)
Good day, Is this new 26mm road rim that you mentioned above available yet? Looking to set up some wheels soon. Thanks!
LightBicycle : (2016-11-16)
Hello Loren, Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, we have the new road rims. But it is much wider with 28mm width. Rim profile attached for your reference. Do you like rim brake or disc brake? The rims will be ready at the end of November. Thanks, Lightbicycle
