Just a few years ago the idea of a lightweight fatbike rim may have seemed like an oxymoron, but at just 500g, the 650mm width rim proves that there is no need for your fatbike wheels to be heavy. This is the perfect option for year round fatbike riding and racing. While it doesn’t offer quite as much float in deep snow or sand as the 85mm width, the 60mm inner width can still handles up to 4.8″ tires.

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


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


Tubeless: Tubeless (no tube) system performs perfectly at super low pressure. The rim mold is modified with better tubeless tyre setup , this design not only reinforces sidewall, also provides superior tire seal, especially for tubeless tires. Tubeless makes your fat bikes much lighter.


Double-wall: Double-wall construction makes fat bike rim with better stiffness and ride handling.


Fat wide: It is a standard width for a wide variety of fat bike riding. The expansive contact patch makes fat bike rims comfortable to ride.


Ultra low profile: it makes fat rims light-weight and fast-rolling. The super-flat design provides better pinch flat protection.


Fast tire installtion: deeper tire bead channel provides easy tire mounting & dismounting for fat bike wheels.


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.


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.


For Non-Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 15 Months Warranty
For Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 3 Years Warranty. Light Bicycle is pleased to offer the options to purchase an extended 5-year Premium warranty or lifetime Premium warranty with minimum charge respectively.

Crash Replacement: It is applicable with the same period as to warranty time range that you purchased for the rim in terms of 15-month/ 3-year/ 5-year/ Lifetime, with 10%+ discount subject to rim model.

Paul 2018/10/20

Looking to convert your RSNOW03 rims to tubeless. What size rim strip would you recommend? Do you recommend any specific manufactures?


LightBicycle 2018/10/22

Hi Paul, Usually, to make sure the rim strip would work well for the tubeless fat bike rim, we would recommend using a rim stripe that 1~2mm narrower than the rim width itself. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello. I currently run 80mm aluminum wheels with 4" tires on my Salted Bikes Sandfly fat bike. Two questions: 1.) What range of tire widths can I run on your 65mm rims? 2.) Are you considering a 27.5 rim option? Thanks!


Light-Bicycle 2016/09/18

Hello Chris, Sorry for the late reply. Because we were on the vacation in last 3 days. For our 26er fat bike rim, the recommend tires width are 4.0''-4.8'' tires. Recently, we do open the new rim mold of 650B fat bike rim. Rim profile attached for reference. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Kirby 2015/07/29

Can you send me the 3K and 12K glossy finish rim pictures for evaluate the quality! Also, what is the difference between this two finishing? Best regards Kirby


Light-Bicycle 2015/07/30

Hello Kirby, Thanks for your inquiry. Please find attached pictures of the rim weave. For 3k/12k/UD, it is the outer carbon fiber layer to make the carbon fiber with different outlook, and all the inside carbon fiber are the same. So, the rim strength & weight is almost the same. For matte and glossy, it is only the painting different. Glossy looks shinny, a bit thicker painting than matte painting. But matte looks more popular. 3k matte &UD matte are more popular. Which do you prefer? RSNOW03 (65mm wide 26er fat bike rim): 480 /-30g, USD243/pcs Please find attached rim profile. For drilling, do you like centered drilling, offset drilling or dual spoke hole pattern? Please find attached profiles. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Hello Sven, Thanks for your inquiry. Please find the attached cross-section drawing of the 65mm wide 26er hookless rim. For the rims, do you prefer UD, 3k or 12k? Matte or glossy? 32H? Which spoke drilling do you prefer? Offset, dual or centered drilling? Please find the attached pictures. http://www.flickr.com/photos/light-bicycle/sets/72157631432948364/detail/ There are Hope Fatsno fat bike hubs here. What axle size do you prefer for the hubs? For the spokes, they are black bladed Pillar Aero PSR X-TRA 1420, black round DT competition and black sapim cx-ray spoke. The prices are the same for the Pillar and DT spoke. The Sapim spoke will be more expensive. Thanks, Light-bicycle
