Rim Warranty This is a required option.

For Recon Pro Series ( MTB rim), Falcon Pro (road rim) and Drift Pro (fatbike rim), 5-year warranty is set as standard, and optional Lifetime Premium Warranty are kindly offered to purchase with minimum charge respectively.

5 Years

Lifetime USD +50/rim

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.

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.

As one of our widest road rims designs, the WR50 is the answer for the gravel rider trying to squeeze out every aerodynamic advantage from their setup.


Designed with racing in mind, the WR50 features a deep U-shape profile that cuts through crosswinds and decreases lateral resistance. With a 50mm deep and stiff profile, the WR50 is designed for experienced bike handlers looking for an aero edge or larger riders. Smaller or new riders may find its brother WR38, a more comfortable and stable wheel option for all their drop bar dirt needs.

ExoTek: ExoTek-applied rims are designed to come out of the molds as a finished product which requires the most high quality manufacturing processes. The new resin system has superior consistency and forms the smoothest and most durable finish we’ve ever created. From a lengthened fatigue life to more robust interlaminar bonds, ExoTek raises the bar in performance and aesthetic.


EcoTek : Built from the highest grade of steel, we’ve engineered a completely new series of molds and developed a process that delivers a near flawless product. More time is taken through the layup and assembly process so that no post-production finishing is required. This new process is more environmentally friendly because it requires less heating cycles, no sanding, and no painting.


BlackTek : Rims featuring BlackTek come out of the molds as a finished product. Traditionally, rims are wet-sanded to remove imperfections like excess resin and then sprayed with a clearcoat. BlackTek rims come with a factory finish and the outer carbon layer is never disturbed after the curing cycle is completed. This is the most hard wearing and scratch resistant finish we have ever produced.


Flyweight: Our lightest construction method uses an exclusive unidirectional prepreg with a very low fiber areal weight. A variable thickness nipple bed reinforces key areas around the spoke holes, eliminating excess material. A blend of Toray T-700 and T-800 offers the weight saving benefits of T-800 carbon without compromising the strength or stiffness of the rim.


AeroTek: Our latest aerodynamic profile decreases lateral wind resistance and is both more stable and faster in a crosswind. A wider profile allows for larger and more efficient tires to be used without an aerodynamic penalty. Traditionally a tire can form a lightbulb shape when mounted on a narrow rim, but the airflow is much smoother with our wider rims.


Tubeless : All of our rims are tubeless compatible with bead seat retention. In most cases a floor pump is all that is needed to seal our rims. The bead shape is tailored to each rim width to achieve the best fit. Our hookless and clincher profiles have a smooth radius to reduce the chance of a pinch flat.


Wider: The wide profile offers improved aerodynamics, better handling in crosswinds condition and faster riding.


For Non-Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 3-year Standard Warranty.

For Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 5-year Pro Warranty as standard and an upgraded optional lifetime Premium Warranty with minimum charge.

Crash Replacement: It is applicable with the same period as the warranty time range that you purchased for the rims with 10% /25% discount for Non-Pro series /Pro series.

J. Finney : Love the wheelset (WR50 w/ DT Swiss 240s)! I have about 2,000 miles on them. Rolling on GP5000 28mm with latex tubes are comfortable and fast. Lots of compliments and shock when people see how wide the wheel is. Highly recommend!!!

Hello what is max recommend tire pressure with 28c tubeless tire on the 25internal rims? Thank you.


LightBicycle 2019/11/11

Hi Matt, For this hook wide road disc rims 700C, the max recommended tire pressure for the WR50 (25mm inner/32mm outer width, 50mm depth) is 130psi. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi - how well would this work coupled with a 28c gp4x or 32c gp5x, just worried that it may be a tad too wide? Have you got any reference, non library photos of rim on bike to give idea of aesthetics? Thanks!


LightBicycle 2019/07/10

Hi Joseph, 700C wide Rim WR50 (32mm wide, 50mm deep) is compatible with 28c and 32c tires. Our recommended range is 28c~50c. Currently, we do not have any bike pictures with WR50 wheelset. I will check with some customers and let them share bike pictures for your reference. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello Could you please post a photo with a 25mm tire (for example a Schwalbe Pro One 25mm) inflated at the right pressure ? As you recommand a size starting at 25mm, i'd like to see how it comes.... i fear it could be "too short".... Thanks in advance !


LightBicycle 2019/05/29

Hi Eric, 25c tires can fit in the WR50 wide disc rims 700C but considered narrow as you worried, our recommendation tire width is 28c~50c. Can your frame ok with 28c tires? If not, you can check out our narrower rims like the RR46C02, or 17.9mm inner/25mm outer width series rims, RRU55C02 or RRU45C02. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Is the finish and color on the 38mm and 50mm the same? I'm thinking of doing a 38 front and 50 back but the photos seem to be a different shade and gloss.


LightBicycle 2019/05/21

Hi Kenny, Yes, the 38mm and 50mm finish will be the same. The reason why the 50mm seemed more glossy is because of the light source and shooting angle. Sorry for misleading to you. Theese 700C bike rims finish is between glossy and matte. What road disc hubs are you looking for? We can quote accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Please make this new shape in deeper rim depths. 50mm is great I’m sure, but I am hoping you go to 65mm and deeper for the time trial and triathletes out there.


LightBicycle 2019/05/03

Hi Tharmor, Currently, 32mm wide disc rims we only have 38mm deep and 50mm deep. Do you like 65mm also in disc version? Thanks, Lightbicycle


H

Harry 2019/05/04

65mm depth with 21-23 wide internal, and 31-32 external would be great with the new carbon blend


LightBicycle 2019/05/05

Hi Harry, Have you check out our RR56C02 (23mm internal/30mm outer width, 56mm depth). This is the closest rim we got to your request. But it's made with the traditional manufacturing process and technologies applied. Do you think our new WR50 road disc rims not meeting your needs? Would you share more of your thoughts on this? Thanks, Lightbicycle


J

Jo 2019/08/08

What i think, ideal rim depth would be 60mm with outer 32mm and inner max 23mm


LightBicycle 2019/08/13

Hi Jo, Thank you for the feedback on this road disc suggestion, I will certainly bring your suggestion to our Technique Research and Development Dept. Will contact you if your suggested rim is approved by our engineers. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Harry 2019/08/21

LB, I actually have a set of the new 50mm rims, and they’re great. I think you would also sell a lot of rims in the deeper depths (eg, 65-80 mm) with similar dimensions to your 56mm rim but with a slightly narrower internal width. The older style 56mm rims look great in person, but the new style is the nicest I’ve seen.


LightBicycle 2019/08/21

Hi Harry, We are happy that you like our falcon pro road disc rims. We have deeper rims, but it is 28mm wide. Is it okay for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle
