Dear LB Team! I really find the AR365 and 465 Series really interesting. Most new rims from other vendors are produces HOOKLESS in the meantime. The rim is a bit wider in the bed, offers better tirefitt for TLR TyreS/more aero and I am quite sure the rim itself could be a bit lighter and is wider. Are there plans to built the AR-Series hookless as an option? I know you have some rims of the WR and AR Series already with an hookless option. THX!


LightBicycle 2022/06/07

Hi Benjamin, Glad to hear that you are taking interest in the X-Flow design 700C bike rim. The width of the rim is dynamically changing to provide a better aero performance. We have to make the layup design specific for the design in order to maintain the weight to stiffness ratio. The flyweight version is what we offer currently. We can certainly make the rim lighter if it's a consistent profile rim. We acheive 360g for AR35 and 390g for AR45 if you prefer a lighter rim. The hookless rims are limited in tire pressure. which is less than75psi/ 5.17bar. Hook rim can hold higher tire pressure. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Will AR465 Rims be available in a hookless version anytime soon? I run 28/30 mm GP5000TR S and would like to run hookless. Or do you recommend wider rims (WR) for this tire combination?


LightBicycle 2022/04/05

Hi Philip, Thanks for your inquiry! How much tire pressure do you ride? For hookless, it is better to ride less than 60PSI, to prevent from tires blowing off. We also have wider gravel rims 700C in the same design, like WR40( it is 32mm wide/40mm deep). https://www.lightbicycle.com/700C-road-bicycle-rims-32mm-wide-40mm-deep-symmetric-clincher-road-disc-brake-available.html Thanks, Lightbicycle

Want a set of falcon pro wheels from 40 to 46 in depth and 28 width preferably with bites hubs and for disc brakes- I would prefer from us/Canada warehouse- is this possible? Otherwise the overall price probably won’t be cost effective - I’m willing to wait a few months


LightBicycle 2021/12/24

Hi Piers, We can send the parts or wheels to the North America warehouse, and then ship the AR465 road disc wheelset 700C to you. But it would not be cost-effective or fast. What's the reason that you prefer to ship from Canada or US? If you are concerned about the tax, don't worry. We do have shipping options that include the tax. So my recommendation would be to order from the Global warehouse. It would be easier, and more customized options. Also, be cheaper. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I have a 32 spoke hole SON Dynamo hub, Is there any way to get 32h drilled rims?


LightBicycle 2021/07/27

Hi Joe, I am sorry that the AR375 & AR465 700C road disc special rim shape makes custom hole count impossible. The spoke hole position is aligned with the wave surface by mold. We only have 20H and 24H mold made. But, we can make other rims in 32H without any problem. Will AR45-28mm wide ok for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Have you guys tested this in a tunnel? Do you know how many watts faster it is at 40kph vs. the AR45 or WR50?


LightBicycle 2021/05/03

Hi Julien, Currently, the test is computer simulation on X-flow proflies. What is your tire width? For different tire width, the result will be different. Because WR50 is 32mm wide, and AR45/AR465 are 28mm wide. For AR465 X-flow, they also have much better lateral stiffness than all other models, so they provide better bike control, not just aerodynamics. Thanks, Lightbicycle
