TECH

As one of our widest road rims designs, the WR45 is the answer for the gravel rider trying to squeeze out every aerodynamic advantage from their setup.

Designed with racing in mind, the WR45 features a deep U-shape profile that cuts through crosswinds and decreases lateral resistance. With a 45mm deep and stiff profile, the WR45 is designed for experienced bike handlers looking for an aero edge or larger riders.

Hello, is there a reason why the WR rims (including the WR45) do not have an asymmetrical profile? (As you probably know, the asymmetry offers the advantage of more even spoke tensions.) Thanks


LightBicycle 2020/12/02

Hi Julian, The main reason why we don't make an asymmetric version of WR rims wide 700C road is out of aerodynamics consideration. A symmetrical rim would gain more aero benefits. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi there. does the hookless variant of this rim comply with the new ETRTO standard? specifically the dimension of the bead seat diameter?


LightBicycle 2020/11/17

Hi Tom, For hook and hookless, they share the same rim mold. So, the ETRTO is the same on these WR45 road disc rims. Thanks, Lightbicycle

As a 15yo 65kg road and cross rider trying to build a super light aero wheelset do you think the flyweights would be strong enough? Thanks


LightBicycle 2020/03/26

Hi Matthew, The WR45 road disc rim with flightweight version is strong enough for 65KG rider.Do you like rims only or complete wheelset 700C? Thanks, Lightbicycle
