Ratchet This is a required option.

DT Swiss hubs use star ratchets and are available in 3 different models with varying points of engagement.

18T - Deepest teeth, slowest engagement, least amount of maintenance, suitable for powerful riders.

36T - Happy medium, doubles the engagement points.

54T - Super fast engagement, but shallow teeth require more careful re-greasing and the thru-axle should be checked every ride.

EXP 36 - With only a singlel spring, making the hubs faster and lighter, more complete engagement of the 36 ratchet teeth for more precise contact, and therefore a longer lifespan.

TECH

Is it possible to get fatter and lose weight at the same time? Thanks to a lightweight single wall design, the FS680 rims save a pound of rotational weight compared to most alloy wheelsets, all while adding lateral stiffness. Weighing in at just 500g per rim, you’ll drop a significant amount of rotational weight from your fatbike without compromising strength or stiffness.

Example Wheelset Build: ONLY 1700G! Rims: FS680 Hubs: Tune Fat King/Fat Kong Spokes: Sapim CX-RAY Nipples: Sapim Polyax Secure Lock

Each wheel from Light Bicycle is built using the best industry practices by professional builders, ensuring your investment stands the test of time.

Tech Notes: 1. Bladed spokes or Sapim D-Light's are recommended for the FS680 wheelset. DT Swiss Comp Race or Revolution spokes stretch out too easily and would cause a poor wheel build with a single wall rim. 2. Use nipples with a standard head or Sapim Hex nipples only. Nipples with a tall head will cause an issue with the tubeless tape. 3. DO NOT use tire levers to install a tire or to unseat a tire on FS680 rims. The wall thickness is quite thin just past where your tire sits, and you may damage this area by prying on it!

Kim : I Received a pair of FS680 with Hope Fatsno hubs a few weeks ago to go on my Diamant fat bike , they are very true and nicely finished, have only done 2 rides so far, one a nice flowing single track and the other a rough as fire trail, so far so good, very happy

I would like to have a wheel built using the FS680 rim, but i would like to have it built with Onyx hubs. Is this a possibility? Thanks


LightBicycle 2019/05/05

Hi Nathan, Yes, Onyx fat hubs are available. Which size are you looking for? Do you like fat bike wheelset with front 15*150mm/rear 12*197mm? Thanks, Lightbicycle

When will this size be available in 27.5? Several bike companies are moving to that wheel size.


LightBicycle 2018/11/16

Hi Marc, In fact, we do have future plans for making a 650b fat bike rim version of this rim (single wall profile). But I am afraid that have to wait till we got the result from our market analyzing. We need to see if there's a market demand on this. Thank you for bringing this to us. I will let you know when this is settled. You can also follow our on social media to get the fresh news. Thanks, Lightbicycle
