TECH

The Flyweight rim targeted specifically towards racers who seek every possible edge on the race course. Our goal was to produce the lightest possible rim without sacrificing performance.

Drawing on our engineers’ years of experience and countless revisions in each step of the manufacturing process, we are able to produce a strong and stiff gravel rim while dramatically reducing the weight.

Construction: We used a special uni-directional pre-preg with a very low fiber areal weight. This is an exclusive process to our Flyweight rims. To further reduce the weight we used a blend of Toray T700 and T800 specific layups. We opted for a new subtle ultralight waterslide graphic in glossy black with a matte finish overtop in the spirit of keeping these as funny cyclocross cross riding oriented rims.

Saad: Finally got my wheels in and went on a 40-mile gravel ride which I always get dropped on with my 650b wheels with the 2.35” mtb tires that the Open Wide comes with as well as tried 42mm wtb resolute. This wheelset with 45mm WTB riddlers saved me a couple lbs but this has been the first ride where I was leading the pack on both flats and climbs. I’m amazed and would highly recommend getting a set of these ultralight wheels.

Hi! I bought these wheels with the novatec d411/412 hubs. Are these considererd road hubs and should I use a spacer when installing a shimano mtb-cassette?


LightBicycle 2021/03/17

Hi Erik, Thanks for reaching out! You can take our freehub compatibility recommendation chart for ref. https://www.lightbicycle.com/newsletter/Bike-Freehub-Cassette-Compatibility-Manual.html On the other hand, you can configure the wheelset with MTB Novatec hubs here. https://www.lightbicycle.com/beadless-carbon-29er-XC-light-weight-mtb-tubeless-wheelset-hand-built-27mm-wide.html Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi , looking for Your most comfortable And light carbon Préférable clincher Wheel set for my road bike with rim brakes . I like climbing and fast rides. What do you suggest .


LightBicycle 2020/07/01

Hi Jean, Could you kindly answer a few questions for me before I make any recommendations for you? 1. What's your weight? 2. What tire are you plan to run? 3. Is there any chance that you will run with high pressure? over 80psi? rim brake or disc? 4. Do you have an ideal estimated weight range for the wheelset 700C? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Valtteri 2020/04/23

Hello! I'm looking for something truly light, as I'm giving my bike a diet to lose weight and I'd like to gain more performance out of my riding. I ride on gravel and tarmac, and occasional steep hills. So something fast but also comfortable on longer rides. Out of curiosity, how would wheels like the AR24 disc, as they seem to be your lightest, handle on long mixed road rides? I am not looking to race them. I'm also interested in the AR28 and WR35 disc models. How would these compare?


LightBicycle 2020/04/24

Hi Valtteri, 1. Yes, AR24 is the lightest rim we have. In fact, it's one of our oldest model (on the market for many years now). It was intended to design for XC riding (MTB model RM29C06) at the time. But as the disc road bike industry changes, road rims become wider and wider nowadays. Some of our customers use this XC rim as gravel rim. The reason why we put AR24 under the gravel category recently is that people always ask for lighter road rims. That been said, the AR24 only available in the hookless bead version, so you cannot run high pressure with it. 2. AR28 gravel bike rim(22mm internal, 29mm outer width, 28mm depth) on the other hand, was a specific design for gravel riding. You might notice that AR28 is an asymmetrical rim with a 2mm offset. This will help the wheels become more balanced. 3. We do have another superlight rim released recently, it's the AR35 (21mm internal, 28mm outer width, 35mm depth). The flyweight version is only 350+/-15g. The other highlight of this model is the manufacturing technologies (first launched in 2018) that applied to the rim. The rim comes out of the mold as a finished product by using a special release agent and high accuracy mold. The rim won't need any post-production because the finish itself is strong and without flaws. You can easily notice the carbon fiber texture. This requires high accuracy and meticulous production. The outcome for rim performance is stronger and high scratch resistance. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Looking for a light, low profile, disc brake climbing wheel. The AR 24 recommends tires above 28C. What if I run 23-25C?


LightBicycle 2020/04/17

Hi Keith, For 22mm internal width rim, 23-25c tires would be a bit narrow to fit, which the 700C rim wouldn't hold the tires on as good. So it would be better to keep the tire within the range 28~50c. Thanks, Lightbicycle
