Teleport to the rim page.

The 38mm wheels are very popular amongst riders looking for a strong and wide carbon wheelset. 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.

Tom 2016/05/22

Hello Light bicycle, I am a highly agressive Enduro and All mountain rider, I weigh 85KG and I have a Transition Patrol, 650B wheel, large frame. I have a few questions: 1. Do you think the 38mm is overkill? 2. I wanted to know if there was any difference between this wheelset and the RM650BC13 RIM you have for sale on it's own? I see there are more options on the RIM only page, the decals look different and you have a "Heavy Duty" option not available on the wheelset page. 3. Can you do this build with purple or blue anodised spokes? 4. How much extra is the customised decal? Do I just send you the text I want or how does this customisation work? 5. What does hookless mean and does this wheel set have it? 6. If I purchase this wheel today with Blue Hope Hubs, decal customisations and purple or blue spokes, when will it arrive in Scotland? 7. Some of your wheels say "tubeless compatible", some "tubeless ready", and others nothing at all. Can you confirm what the differences are in your 650B, AM category? Thanks, Tom


Light-Bicycle 2016/05/23

Hello Rick, Thanks for your inquiry. According to your details, we’d like to recommend the 34mm width or 35mm width 29er wheels for your riding. WM29C21 (with 34mm width asymmetrical rims, Hope pro4): USD941/pair WM29C07 (with 35mm width rims, Hope pro4): USD813/pair Hope pro4 is our most popular hubs. The DT Swiss 350 and 240S are available also. If you have some change requests, we would be pleased to review your quote. Thanks, Light-bicycle
