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.

Add Valve Stem USD +7 each

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.

Which nipple and spoke length do you recommend for these rims using shimano slx flange hubs?


LightBicycle 2020/10/07

Hi Johan, Can you be more specific about the hub and provide the dimension measurements to me so I can do the calculation for you accordingly? Then we can get the spoke length for these wide road disc rims. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'm interested in a FALCON rim WR65 CX/Gravel build. As far as I've seen there's just the rim offered at the moment, right? But I've also seen an exemplary build with DT swiss 240s hubs and sapim spokes. That looks like the one I'd like to have myself for my gravel bike. Would that be possible? I'm also wondering if the rims are going to be released in the pro series in the next time? I would love to have the lifetime warranty option if available. Best regards Ruben


LightBicycle 2020/09/17

Hi Ruben, Yes, only the rim is available online at this point. But you can order a built road disc wheelset by email if you like. Could you be more specific about what you want? Hubs specs, spokes, nipples? Thanks, Lightbicycle
