The layup schedule is predetermined for each model, but you can choose the outer layer.
3k/12k/UD are the 3 choices for cosmetic appearance.The rim strength & weight is virtually identical.
UD Matte is the most popular and has a subtle look.
3k weave has a more traditional carbon fiber look.

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.

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 WR35 was built with one goal in mind: making the best rim possible for long distance gravel racing or riding.

With a massive 25mm inner diameter, the WR35 provides a stable profile for even the widest gravel tires.

Thanks to its mid-depth profile, the WR35 is deep enough to provide aerodynamic help when riding alone across gravel plains, but not so deep that is hard to control in crosswinds.

Whether you find yourself racing across the Midwest or month long backpacking trip, the WR35 might just be the perfect match.

Hi, I am interested in a wheel set built using your Falcon 32mm wide 35mm deep carbon rims, ideally with both rims being the flyweight version. I realize you only recommend the flyweight for the rear wheel, but I am only ~70-72kg rider + ~9.5kg of gravel bike. The rear hub would be a 28h Hope Pro 4 and the front hub a Cannondale Lefty 1.0 28h being used with a lefty Oliver Fork. I would use Sapim D-light spokes with brass nipples. Can you advise if you feel this would be a suitable/safe build? Many thanks, Paul


LightBicycle 2020/08/08

Hi Paul, Yes, we usually don't recommend running the flyweight rim on the back. We suggest standard rims on the back to make the wheelset stronger and durable for long term use. You are not a big rider if you insist on using the flyweight rim on the back, it shouldn't be a problem. However, I would still suggest running the standard on the back. The weight difference is 55g. The brass nipples are heavier than alloy ones if you want to prevent corrosion (raining, wet conditions), they would be wonderful. If you want to get lighter, alloy nipples will also be a good option. For road disc wheels 700C, we mostly built with Sapim CX-Ray spokes, they are lighter than D-light and durable, and also aero. Thanks, Lightbicycle

What’s the fastest you can do to ship? Also the design graphic how much do you charge and how long dies that take as well?


LightBicycle 2020/06/20

Hi Michael, 1. Could you be more specific about the road disc wheelset 700C you want so I can check the availability and lead time for you? 2. Normally, custom decal would extend the lead time. It would take a week or so to produce and confirm with you and then apply on the rims. Do you have a sketch or design idea so our designer can make a mockup with? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Knut 2020/04/27

Hi. How is the flyweight version of this rim to a powerful rider that is 80kg? Could I get a quote on these rims with DT240 straight pull centerlock, 24holes front and 28holes rear, withSapim CXray spokes. How is shipping to Norway for rims? Thank you:)


LightBicycle 2020/04/27

Hi Knut, 1. The max rider weight we recommend for the flyweight WR35 (25mm internal, 32mm outer with, 35mm depth) is 90kg. However, we also recommend using the flyweight rim for the front wheel only. It's better to run the standard version rim on the back. 2. Given the fact that DT SWISS is about to upgrade the 240s hubs to the new EXP system soon. So many 240s hubs are hard to purchase now. I would suggest 24H/24H for the wheelset. 3. The cost for DT 240s hubs with WR35 rims, Sapim CX-Ray spokes would be USD $921.4/pair for 32mm wide road disc wheelset. let me know your thoughts on this. I will prepare the invoice for you when you are ready to order. 4. We are offering $1 shipping for all orders now, the offer is about to end at the end of this week. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, do you recommend the WR35 disc rim for mountain biking? I am 85kg and race XC. Thanks, Ken


LightBicycle 2020/04/07

Hi Ken, What would be the tire width that you planning on using for your XC bike? Normally, the MTB tire is wider than gravel tires. We need to make sure the tire fitting is ok. For WR45 (25mm internal/32mm outer width, 45mm depth) itself, the strength and stiffness would be enough for your weight (85kg without gear?) and XC riding. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Joseba 2019/12/01

I am interested in WR35 disc but I see that it has an internal width of 25 mm Isn't it too much for the 700x28c road tire? Schwalbe says .. mounting, the drop center of the rim should be 2.6 to 3 mm deep, concave and at least 12 mm wide. The rim’s inner width should be at least 17C, while 19C or 21C is optimum.


LightBicycle 2019/12/02

Hi Joseba, We did tire mounting test on our 32mm wide rims and the Schwalbe Pro One 28c tires are very easy to install. On the other hand, 25c tires are relatively harder. But still easy to install, no leaver needed. We also have 28mm wide/36mm deep road disc rims if you like, Please check below link. https://www.lightbicycle.com/Road-bicycle-disc-rims-28mm-wide-36mm-deep-aero-clincher.html Thanks, Lightbicycle

Nick 2019/11/24

Are the spoke holes drilled or molded? Are they angled to reduce stress at the spike hole? Thanks!


LightBicycle 2019/11/25

Hi Nicholas, All our carbon bike rims are drilled by a 4-axis CNC machine. The spoke holes are angled drilling with forward/backward/left/right angle to make spoke direction going on well in wheelbuilding.If you use special hubs, you can let us know your hub specs. We can customized angle drilling to match your hubs on WR35 32mm wide road disc rims. Thanks, Lightbicycle
