David : The wheels are really good. Noticeably faster on the flats, and on shallower gradient climbs. The carbon spokes help them feel stiff and responsive when climbing as well, despite being a deep rim.

Nathan : Had this frameset for a couple of years, but basically had it set up on the trainer as a permanent installation. Needless to say, it was time to get this baby some wheels, and light bicycle AR55 was the move

Tim : Love these wheels. LightBicycle are my go-to wheels from now on. Had one set (AR45) built up by them, then ordered some rims (AR55) to build up another set myself. Fantastic build, super light, and will now need these on my mtb too. Can’t wait to build a new set this year. Keep up the good work LightBicycle!!!

Hi, I am about to order a FALCON PRO RIM AR55 disc rim from the NA shop, but I noticed that the global shop as the option for access holes and drain holes, but the NA shop does not. If I order from the NA shop, will the rim have access holes and drain holes? Thank you, Rhys


LightBicycle 2022/07/05

Hi Rhys, If you want to order from the NA warehouse the AR55 road 700C rims, they are with access holes and without drain holes. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I am 176lb and plan to ride fixed gear on city streets with 28 hole configuration. Am I able to choose the fly weight option or would I be better off getting the standard weight?


LightBicycle 2022/07/04

Hi Rhys, For 176lbs, it is okay to ride flyweight version. Do you ride aggressively or gently? Normally, standard version is more durable, it is with much more carbon fiber material. If you prefer wheels more durable, you can go for standard version AR55 700C road disc instead. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi I’m thinking about getting a pair of falcon pro rims from you. Can you let me know how the ar55 and ar45 or ar465 compare in windy conditions please ? Also what availability do you have for a pair of flyweight rims of any of the above ? I’m in the UK. Would probably go for the tax prepaid shipping option. Thanks Tom


LightBicycle 2022/04/05

Hi Tom, AR375 and AR465 rims 700C performs really good at windy weather, because the rims are with much better lateral stiffness and much better control in windy weather. May i know your weight please? Do you ride aggressively or not? Then we can check whether flyweight rims can work for you or not. For UK customers, you can order rims with water drain holes, and also TPD tax prepaid delivery options. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Ciao Marco, Grazie per il contatto! Sono Charlie con la bicicletta leggera. Sì, possiamo spedire 2 sale montate in Italia con tasse prepagate. Il costo di spedizione sarebbe USD278. Hai elencato 3 modelli di cerchi, quindi come ti piace costruire le 2 ruote? Hai già capito tutte le configurazioni? Posso aiutare comunque? Mi scuso per la lingua, sto usando il traduttore. Thanks, Lightbicycle
