    OVERVIEW

RIM

Brake System This is a required option.

Road-Rim-High-TG-Surface-Grooved-Graphene-Surface

Non Disc - High TG Surface: Rim Brake 700C road rims use an advanced High TG resin system with a layer of graphene to help dissipate heat. The braking power and reliability is significantly improved over a basalt braking surface.

Non Disc - Grooved Graphene Surface: Our new resin system and construction method, combined with the 3k rim track, withstands over 280°C, dissipates heat, and lowers rim temperatures faster in between braking efforts. Gain confidence-inspiring brake performance on the steepest descents and wettest conditions with our matching brake pads. Also, graphene added to the rim brake track allows for greater resistance to overheating with improved heat dissipation and reduced temperature accumulation during heavy braking. The grooved track helps evacuate trapped moisture between pad and rim in wet conditions, and brings more resistance and force at the lever when conditions are dry.

Disc: The disc version does not have a rim brake track and features a unique disc specific layup process. Our new layup is about 10g ~30g lighter by reducing the unnecessary material and utilizing elements of our Flyweight construction method.

Hole Count This is a required option.

Please note that our valves are drilled for presta and spoke holes are made for external nipples only. If you have a custom drilling requirements please e-mail us and we'll send you a purchasing link.

Weave This is a required option.

The layup schedule is predetermined for each model, but you can choose the outer layer.
3k/12k/UD are the 3 choices for cosmetic appearance.The rim strength & weight is virtually identical.
UD Matte is the most popular and has a subtle look.
3k weave has a more traditional carbon fiber look.

Center Channel Hole This is a required option.

WITH HOLES: This is the traditional method. Holes are drilled in the center channel to allow the nipples to easily be fed through the rim. Tubeless tape is required to seal the rim.


WITHOUT HOLES: No holes are drilled in the center channel. Feeding the nipples through the rim is more challenging, but it allows for a tubeless setup without the need for tape. This kind of system is known as "road tubeless" and was made popular by Mavic. Some companies still refer to it as "UST style", however, UST is actually a specific interface between the tire and rim which was developed by a partnership between Mavic, Michelin, and Hutchinson.

Without Holes

Decal This is a required option.

Road rims use super light waterslide decals (glossy black). The decal is very thin and applied under a clearcoat so they are non-removeable.

Valve Stem This is a required option.

We include enough valves to cover your individual rim purchase. We use a lightweight black alloy anodized valves with an oversized concave collar for easy gripping. A rubber o-ring goes in between the rim and the collar to help seal the rim and match the contour of the rim profile. The valve core is removable so you can add sealant without removing your tire.

Add Valve Stem USD +7 each

Tubeless Tape This is a required option.

One 10 yard roll of tape will be included. It is typically covers 2 rims with two laps each or 4 rims with one lap each.The high tensile tubeless tape features a natural rubber adhesive that does not leave a residue on the rims. On mountain bike rims, one layer of 18mm width tape is strong enough to seal the access holes which makes for the lightest tubeless setup.

With an incredibly aerodynamic 88mm depth, the R88 is the perfect partner for your time-trial, triathlon, or crit racing bike. These build up into some of our stiffest and most aerodynamic wheelsets and maintain top speed like no other. The 26.54mm outer width keeps things aerodynamically optimized with smoother rolling for your 25C ~ 28C tires.

High TG: Our new resin system and construction method, combined with the 3k rim track, withstands over 280°C, dissipates heat, and lowers rim temperatures faster in between braking efforts. Gain confidence-inspiring brake performance on the steepest descents and wettest conditions with our matching brake pads.


Graphene Brake Track : Graphene added to the rim brake track allows for greater resistance to overheating with improved heat dissipation and reduced temperature accumulation during heavy braking. The grooved track helps evacuate trapped moisture between pad and rim in the wet and brings more resistance when conditions are dry so less force at the lever is required. At this stage, with this newest brake track, you could order road Non-disc rims only directly online, however, please contact us at sales@lightbicle.com if you want to order a complete wheelset with that.


AeroTek: Our latest aerodynamic profile decreases lateral wind resistance and is both more stable and faster in a crosswind. A wider profile allows for larger and more efficient tires to be used without an aerodynamic penalty. Traditionally a tire can form a lightbulb shape when mounted on a narrow rim, but the airflow is much smoother with our wider rims.


DuoTek: Our clincher rims are manufactured in two pieces and then joined together. When designing the rims, our engineers, in every detail, demanded fewer joints. Fewer joints mean higher strength and stability.


TuffTek: A high-grade customized epoxy resin is used in our prepreg, creating a stable base for all of our road rims. Epoxy is less brittle than polyester resins and offers excellent flexural strength. Our consistent resin system, coupled with a precise layup schedule, allows for an extremely reliable and durable product.


Tubeless : All of our rims are tubeless compatible with bead seat retention. In most cases a floor pump is all that is needed to seal our rims. The bead shape is tailored to each rim width to achieve the best fit. Our hookless and clincher profiles have a smooth radius to reduce the chance of a pinch flat.


T700: Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.


For Non-Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 3-year Standard Warranty.

For Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 5-year Pro Warranty as standard and an upgraded optional lifetime Premium Warranty with minimum charge.

Crash Replacement: It is applicable with the same period as the warranty time range that you purchased for the rims with 10% /25% discount for Non-Pro series /Pro series.

Hey I am looking for a set of rim to build with my PowerTab hub. - Are these listed Rim sold as a pair? - Can I use PowerTab power meter hub with your Rim? - Do you sell spokes/nipples to complete my built? Thank you. Yuhao


LightBicycle 2019/11/13

Hi Sir, - It is okay to order 88mm deep clincher rim 700C at just one single rim. - Yes, it is okay to build powertab hub on our carbon fiber bike rims. - Yes, it is okay to sell you spokes and nipples. Please let us know which spokes you like and the spoke length. - Your email looks wrong, we can not reach you actually. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I'm looking to purchase R88 in 20 holes and R65 with 18 holes both drilled for internal nipples. How would I go about specifying internal nipple holes when I order? Thank you! Lance


LightBicycle 2019/10/23

Hi Lance, The internal nipple option is currently not available online, you can order the rims you want and leave the request to the message aera in the checkout/cart page. Then we can double check with and will manufacture these road bike rims with internal nipple holes. Or you can send us the road rims 700C rim order specs here and your delivery address here, we can work on invoice accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle
