  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Tubeless
    While the rims are optimized for a tubeless setup with the addition of tubeless tape, they also work with tubes.
  • Asymmetrical
    The profile allows for equalized spoke tension which creates a stronger wheel that stays true.
  • 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.
  • T700
    Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.

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

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.

My friend orders the rims for me and they are the AM724
Light-Bicycle : (2016-08-24)
Hello Andrew, Okay, thanks for both of your support. We are so happy you are enjoying your new rims. It would be great to see some pictures of them on your bike. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Hello Chris, Thanks for your inquiry. The rim price on our website is for single rim. Thanks, Light-bicycle

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
