Valve Stem This is a required option.

None

Add Valve Stem USD +7

We include enough valves to cover your individual rim purchase. We use a lightweight black alloy anodized valve 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 vavle core is removeable so you can add sealant withoutn removing your tire.

Tubeless Tape This is a required option.

None

Add Tubeless Tape USD +6

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.

Teleport to the wheelset building page.

Light enough for racing, the XC724 is tough enough to handle the demands of everyday all-mountain riding. Whether you are running race tires or mounting up some beefier trail treads, the 24mm inner width provides a versatile platform to build up a lightweight wheelset.


Using our modern hookless U-Shaped profile, bead seat bumps, and tubeless ready profile, the XC724 is designed to exceed the demands of today's hard charing trail and all-mountain riders, without added weight. The additional stiffness of carbon fibre over your alloy rims will have you railing turns and blasting through rough terrain with new-found confidence.

Cuopon code (15.00% off per rim): 2CPWY4D8

Hookless: Carbon fiber flows continuously over the bead area to provide the best impact resistance and a significant strength increase compared to a clincher rim.


Manufacturing process: Our air bladders are made from a special material which produces smoother walls, result in a lighter rim, and are completely removed without harsh chemicals. They are removed through the valve hole with a unique process so that the rim does not have to be patched like traditional manufacturers use. This significantly improves the strength of the rims. Read More about our process


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


Precise layup: Each rim carries its own layup schedule documents which are followed meticulously by the layup workers. Our Engineering team creates a unique fiber orientation which amplifies the desired riding characteristics for a given rim.


Angled Holes: Angled spoke holes allows the nipple to pull straight in line with the spoke for reduced stress. This results in fewer broken spokes and nipples.


U-Shape: U-shape profile spreads the force of impacts and creates a more robust product.


Bead lock: The small ridges on either side of the drop channel help secure tubeless tires in place. The bead lock makes it easier to seal up tubeless tires with a floor pump, and they are incredibly hard to burp.


Asymmetrical: The profile allows for equalized spoke tension which creates a stronger wheel that stays true.


Tubeless: While the rims are optimized for a tubeless setup with the addition of tubeless tape, they also work with tubes.


Pro Series: from date of purchase, 3 years warranty
Non-Pro Series: from date of purchase, 15 months warranty

Crash Replacement: from date of purchase, 30 months with 10%+ discount subject to rim model

I'm concerned with tires fitting correctly. Can you tell me how tall the sidewalls are from the bead seat to the top? Will the rim work for high pressure road plus?


LightBicycle 2017/10/24

Hi Jim, For AM724 rim, it is 5.5mm from the top of the rim to the bead seat. We recommend to use less than 40psi on AM724 rims. There will be a risk to have tire blow out problem if it is with higher tire pressure. We recommend our RG722 rim for you(as attached). It's 650b rim and hook design. Hook rim can run as much as 120 psi tire pressure. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Is the weight limit per wheel or for both? I assume bike rider bags


LightBicycle 2017/04/24

Hello Andrew, Thanks for your inquiry. The weight limit is for a complete wheelset. But it is just an approximate estimation. Sorry, what do you mean of “I assume bike rider bags”? The AM724 is design for gentle all mountain riding. Or we have a wider and stronger wheel 34mm width. May I know your weight? What is your riding terrain normally? Do you ride aggressively? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Can I put a 2.5 wide tire on this rim?


Light-Bicycle 2016/08/22

Hello Andrew, Thanks for your inquiry. The recommended tire width for AM724 are 2.0''-2.4''. In theory, the rim is able to work with 2.5'' tire also. May I know what your riding terrain is normally? Do you ride aggressively? What is your weight? Then we will double check which rim is more suitable for you and quote accordingly. Because we have some wider rims worked with 2.5’’ tire well. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Andrew 2016/08/22

Ok thank you for replying. I am a very aggressive rider, and are terrain is very lose dirt, I weigh 110 lbs and I already bought these rims and they are great.


Light-Bicycle 2016/08/23

Hello Andrew, We are happy to hear that you like our rims! You can email us at sales@lightbicycle.com We can reply your questions directly through email. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Light-Bicycle 2016/08/24

I assume that when you say asymetric you mean that the spoke holes are offset from center. If so how many mm are the holes offset?


Light-Bicycle 2016/05/20

Hello Dennis, Thanks for your inquiry. The asymmetrical rims are with 2.6mm offset. Rim profile attached is for your reference. Thanks, Light-bicycle

I just purchased the AM724 (650B). Going to build them up with Industry 9 torch hubs. Can you tell me the right spoke length? Thanks! Dave


Light-Bicycle 2016/03/21

Hello Dave, Thanks for your support. For spoke length, it also depends on the spoke pattern you use. The AM724 rim ERD is 553mm. You can use below link & attached picture to get correct spoke length. http://www.prowheelbuilder.com/spokelengthcalculator/ You have to fill in rim ERD 553mm, choose the I9 hubs and spoke pattern. Then you can get correct spoke length. Or you can calculate the spoke length once getting the rims, to ensure the correct length you order. Thanks, Lightbicycle
