With a stiff 50mm deep profile, the WR50 is designed for experienced bike handlers looking for an aerodynamic edge, or for larger riders wanting a really solid feeling wheelset. Smaller or less experienced riders may find the WR38 a more comfortable and easier rim to control.

Paul-Julien : I love my custom wheelset! I have built my bike and rode the whole summer with it. I mostly shopped the Journey frameset for those characteristics: Carbon (lightweight) Many mounting points Possible to mount fenders and a rack Possible internal cable routing Accommodate large tires (700x45C) Accepts 2x drivetrain

Ben : Configured with 28 spokes, brass nipples, and 3x lacing for increased strength and reliability. Although far from being a light build wheelset I’m really impressed with these so far. The ability to completely configure the wheels to anyone’s liking really sets Light Bicycle apart from the rest.

You can check with your bike supplier. https://www.scott-sports.com/us/en/product/scott-addict-rc-ultimate-bike?article=286406 We just sent you the WR50 road disc wheelset 700C with DT 240 EXP hubs quotation to your email. please check.

Maxime 2021/09/06

Hi, I’m interested in the WR50 DISC model. However, the wheelset is intented to be used on a Cannondale Supersix Evo SE/CX, which required the rear wheel to be offset by 6mm to be fully centered between the chainstay. https://cannondale.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/219101107-Ai-Asymmetric-Integration- Is it possible to build these wheels according to these specs?


LightBicycle 2021/09/07

Hi Maxime, Yes, we can build the rear disc wheel 700C with a 6mm offset for your rear wheel with no problem. In fact, we build offset wheels for our customers with the Cannondale AI system all the time, so don't worry. Can you provide the wheel specifications that you want to order so I can send you the order accordingly? You can proceed with the order via email since the option is not listed online. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Johnson 2020/10/06

Hi, I am interested in purchasing a Falcon Pro WR50 wheelset for my bike. I would like to get the DT Swiss 350 hub, but my bike has SRAM Force AXS 12 speed, meaning I would need the SRAM XDR driver which is not an option for that hub for some reason. Is there any way to get the 350 hub and the XDR driver? Thanks, Johnson


LightBicycle 2020/10/07

Hi Johnson, Yes, you can order the XDR drive body for the DT SWISS 350 hubs. There will be USD85 more than standard XD freehub body. I can prepare the road disc wheelset WR50 order and send it to you via email if you can provide detailed specs that you desire. Thanks, Lightbicycle

1) Hello, can I purchase a complete wheel set without it being built? I have experience as a bicycle mechanic and have the ability to build my own wheels. However, I’d like to save on the build service fee if possible. 2) What is covered by the warranty? Crashes, impacts, etc? 3) Does the hooked bead make mounting a tubeless tire more difficult? There is no option for a hookless rim in my preferred build. I would prefer the hookless option as I plan on running tubeless tires at low pressures. Thanks!


LightBicycle 2020/08/25

Hi Sir, 1. Yes, you can get the rims, spokes, hubs from us without being built. 2. The road disc wheelset 700C that you are interested in is the pro WR50, so the standard warranty is 5-years. You can learn more details from our support > warranty & guarantees :> warranty policy > premium warranty policy The crash should be listed under crash replacement policy on the same page. The process is very easy if anything does happen. send over the photos and serial number, we will analyze and determine solutions with you. You don't need to send the old rims back. 3. What configurations that you are looking for? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Wolfgang 2020/03/09

Hi, I configured a WR50 Disc wheelset. 1st of all I want to know if you will ship to germany with what costs. (Should I expect a delivery delay regarding the actual corona situation?) If shipping is possible, I have 3 tech. questions: what about the flyweight option: Is this thinner (and lighter) in this option? hook/hookless? what I must have in mind for tire compatibility? Do you plan an AR56 with a hookless bread? regards Wolfgang


LightBicycle 2020/03/10

Hi Sir, 1. Yes, there will be a delay given the current corona situation. But it will become normal at the end of March. 2. We do offer tax-prepaid delivery service to Germany, you can compare the shipping plan in the checkout page. 3. The flyweight version road disc rim is made with Toray T700 and T800 mixed carbon fiber in a certain percentage in a different layup method to reduce some weight. 4. The hookless are more compatible with tubeless tires, but you should check with the tire manufacturer just in case. When you plan to run over 60psi, hookless rim can't hold the tires on the rims, you should choose hooked version instead. If you are running under 60psi, hookless would be fine. 5. We don't have plan to make AR56 a hookless version in the near future. Thanks, Lightbicycle
