Christian : Really satisfied with the rims. Very light for this size. The size is perfect either for flat or uphill. The aero features make these rims going very fast. Meanwhile the standard brake track performance is not impressive, but works well enough. If there is an option for 30mm wide, 65mm depth would be nice. Definitely will recommend these rims. Once again thank you Light Bicycle.

Hi, Would these fit on my 2020 Supersix Evo rim?


LightBicycle 2020/10/05

Hi Ryan, From SuperSix Evo website, it is hard to find its clearance, you will have to check with bike supplier whether the bike and brake caliper is wide enough for 30mm wide rim brake wheelset. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi - which wheelsets are compatible with a 2014 cannondale supersix evo running SRAM red 22 with rim brakes? Thank you!


LightBicycle 2020/07/29

Hi Lucas, I think the AR36 (21mm internal, 28mm outer width, 36mm deep), AR46 (21mm internal, 28mm outer width, 46mm deep) 700C would be a good fit for you. For 700C rim A56 30mm wide, it will be too wide for your bike or brake caliper. You have to check whether your bike is wide enough. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I saw you reply to another poster about the RR56C03 wheelset. How would I go about ordering them? I don’t see them anywhere on the site. What are your current lead times to the U.S.?


LightBicycle 2020/07/20

Hi Bobby, The RR56C03 700C road disc with 28mm wide is not available online, you can order it by email. What specs are you looking for? Please be more specific so I can make the quote accordingly. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Rod 2020/07/10

Hello, would these fit my rear ultegra 6800 direct mount and front normal mount ultegra 6800 brake calipers?


LightBicycle 2020/07/11

Hi Rod, The AR56 with 30mm wide 700C wheel would be too wide for your Shimano Ultegra 6800 brakes. However, if you like the profile of AR56, we do have an RR56C03 (21mm internal, 28mm outer width, 56mm deep) that would fit the brake and with the same shape of AR56. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, my bike is a 2018 Giant TCR Advanced Pro1 (Rim Brake). I am looking at your 700C-FALCON-wheelset AR56-30mm wide-56mm deep (complete wheelset). I have a tight budget so please help me spec these out. I will run 25mm tires, however I will ask if these can accommodate 28's? I look forward to hearing from you. I live in North America (San Gabriel Valley) Thank you Kevin By the way. I learned about your company from Intheknowcycling.com


LightBicycle 2020/05/29

Hi Kevin, 1. AR56 fits well with both 25c and 28c tires. 2. We do have Novatec hubs that will lower the cost down. But I notice that TCR ADVANCED PRO 1 cane with 16H/21H. Our most common build comes with 20H/24H for rim brake wheels, will this be ok with you? If not, I can check if we can get Novatec hubs with 16H/21H for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I am wondering if you offer a Sram XDR freehub option on the hubs for your rim brake AR56 or RR55 wheelsets?


LightBicycle 2020/02/20

Hi John, Yes, we do have XDR freehub available for DT SWISS hubs. Are you looking for 180, 240s, or 350 for your road disc wheelset 700C? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Are the AR56 rim brake wheelsets available in North America (USA)? I am only getting the option for “Global”. Thanks, Jeff


LightBicycle 2020/01/23

Hi Jeff, Thanks for your reaching out! For AR56 30mm wide/56mm deep rim brake version, we do not keep any stock in North American warehouse. If you like to order, we have to manufacture in our global production line, then ship them to North American warehouse for you, or ship to you directly.Does it work for you? Is your bike and brake caliper wide enough for 30mm wide wheelset 700C? If yes, you can list your order specs here, i can work on invoice accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Craig 2019/05/08

Hello! I would like these wheels in a 12K twill weave, is this possible or only 12K plain weave? Thanks in advance


LightBicycle 2019/05/09

Hi Graig, Yes, we can make 12k twill of the RR56C02 wide gravel bike rim if that is what you desire. Have you figured out the configurations of the wheelset yet? List me the details and I will create the invoice for you since the weave you want is not available online. Below is the picture of 12k twill for your ref in case you want to see how it turned out. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Which caliper brakes suit best, if i dont want to use disc brake? Because all the shimano calipers are limited to 28mm rim width.


LightBicycle 2019/03/15

Hi Jeremy, We found shimano BR-R8000 brakes are okay for wider tires like 28C. Please find attached pictures. But we are not sure whether you bike can fit 30mm wide wheelset. Our RR56C02 road disc rim is 30mm wide. You will have to check with your bike. Thanks, Lightbicycle
