Our new wide format All Mountain rim is a show stopper with its new scratch resistant BlackTek finish. Run all your favourite high volume tires and enjoy the benefits of our modern asymmetric profile.


The 30mm internal width has become one of the most popular widths in recent years, and for good reason! With the advancement of lightweight wide carbon rims, you get the traction and high volume benefits of a wide rim without all of the added weight. The AM730’s will give you a more reliable tubeless fit, increased stiffness, and significantly lower weight over a stock wheelset. Breath new life into your bike!


ExoTek: ExoTek-applied rims are designed to come out of the molds as a finished product which requires the most high quality manufacturing processes. The new resin system has superior consistency and forms the smoothest and most durable finish we’ve ever created. From a lengthened fatigue life to more robust interlaminar bonds, ExoTek raises the bar in performance and aesthetic.


EcoTek : Built from the highest grade of steel, we’ve engineered a completely new series of molds and developed a process that delivers a near flawless product. More time is taken through the layup and assembly process so that no post-production finishing is required. This new process is more environmentally friendly because it requires less heating cycles, no sanding, and no painting.


BlackTek : Rims featuring BlackTek come out of the molds as a finished product. Traditionally, rims are wet-sanded to remove imperfections like excess resin and then sprayed with a clearcoat. BlackTek rims come with a factory finish and the outer carbon layer is never disturbed after the curing cycle is completed. This is the most hard wearing and scratch resistant finish we have ever produced.


Asymmetric : Over the years, we’ve optimized an asymmetric profile that maintains the outright impact performance of a symmetric design but enjoys the benefits of offset spoke holes. This design significantly equalizes spoke tension between drive and non-drive spokes which results in a stronger wheel build that stays true longer.


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.


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.

I'd like to add your RM650BC05 or AM730 asymmetric rims to a pair of industry nine 24-spoke trail wheels. I'm not sure if you are familiar with industry nine but they do not use traditional spoke nipples. They use a one piece aluminum spoke that drops in through the rim and threads directly into the hub flange. They claim they require a ERD of at least 556. Please advise.


LightBicycle 2019/01/23

Hi Michael, We got your message! Are you Industry Nine straight pull hubs? If yes, we are not familar with it, I9 straight pull hubs are only used for their own wheels. We only build wheels with I9 J-bend hubs here. You can check our ERD measure on below link. It is Rim Outer diameter-2*rim depth+2* spoke hole wall thickness. https://www.lightbicycle.com/support/technology Thanks, Lightbicycle
