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.

Featuring a wide 28mm external width, these tubeless ready Falcon Pro rims offer a wide and stable platform for everything from road to gravel tires.


With the 21mm internal width and 45mm depth, the AR45’s are well suited as an aerodynamic gravel race rim or a deep dish cyclocross wheelset. The width is versatile enough for 25-28c road tires and lighten up your road bike to give you an edge at the next Gran Fondo!

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.
