TECH

As one of our widest road rims designs, the WR45 is the answer for the gravel rider trying to squeeze out every aerodynamic advantage from their setup

Designed with racing in mind, the WR45 features a deep U-shape profile that cuts through crosswinds and decreases lateral resistance. With a 45mm deep and stiff profile, the WR45 is designed for experienced bike handlers looking for an aero edge or larger riders.

Do you have any of the Pilar spokes in rainbow color? If not, what color do you have?


LightBicycle 2020/11/13

Hi Sean, Yes, we do have colored spokes available, we will have to special purchase for you if you need it. Have you figured out the full wheelset configurations that you plan to have yet? If not, maybe I can help? But I will have to learn more about your needs and riding conditions. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I’m checking out the 700c WR45 disc Wheelset options. With the flyweight rim and the carbon ti hub, is it possible to increase the spoke count to 28 or 32 spokes? Thanks


LightBicycle 2020/06/12

Hi Calum, Yes, we can get 28H or 32H spoke count Carbon-Ti hubs for you if you want. The reason why we only have 24H online is that most people after the super lightweight of Carbon Ti hubs, tend to get fewer spoke count to get the wheelset road disc lighter. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Considering the hooked vs hookless have the same internal width, which would recommend for a road bike? I don’t mind running tubeless tires, so that isn’t an issue. Would hookless rims and tubeless tires hold up in tight cornering crit races? I think the tire shapes out better on hookless rim, so I’m leaning that way.


LightBicycle 2020/02/11

Hi Jeff, If you are planning on running high pressure (more than 80psi, less than 130psi), you should go with the hook version to hold the tires on. If you will only run under 80psi, hookless would be ok for the condition. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'm interested in something with at least 45mm depth, 23-28 internal width, external isn't as important, whatever is strong. Also want 32 spoke holes per wheel, what do you have for me, please send an email. Thanks, Anton


LightBicycle 2020/02/10

Hi Anton, We have below road disc rims 700C close to your specs. Which do you prefer? WR45: width 25mm inner/32mm outer, 45mm deep WR50: width 25mm inner /32mm outer, 50mm deep. It is okay to order 32spoke count. Don't worry. Thanks, Lightbicycle
