    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.

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.

UD

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.

With Holes

Without Holes

Decal This is a required option.

Road rims use super light waterslide decals (matte colors). 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.

PEK : Very stiff wheels and hold speed really well! Only felt the weight penalty starting from a stand still at traffic junctions and climbing up NTU Hill. Quite stable too with varying wind conditions, though some twitches when there were back gusts from heavy vehicles passing by. Very comfortable too with the 28mm tyres (actual measure width close to 30mm).

Hi, Can I get a quote for a R65 front wheel, 20 spokes, and R88 rear wheel, 24 spokes with DT Swiss 350 hubs or with Bitex (BX301F / BX301R) hubs, drilled holes, no valve stems, no rim tape? Thanks a lot!


LightBicycle 2020/07/21

Hi Mathias, I need to confirm some details before we jump into placing the order. 1. What caliper do you use? The widest area of the R65 700C rim brake is 28.03mm, And it's 30mm for R88. So I want to make sure that the max rim width fits your bike. 2. Here's the hub list for all the hubs we can get, the most used Bitex hubs are RAF10/RAR9. Thanks, Lightbicycle
