TECH

The overall depth alternates between 18.1mm to 21mm, creating a ribbed inner circumference. The unique combination of a stepped sidewall and shapely rim bed gives the carbon rim extra vertical compliance. A finely-tuned Toray T700 layup features layers of carbon nanotubes in key areas to further the vibration damping properties. Carbon nanotubes increase impact resistance by 10% without adding weight. The final result? An all-around player making light work of tough trails.

The thickened rim bead, along with the smooth edge, offers great protection for your tires when hitting an obstacle - the impact energy gets dispersed faster on the broad surface. This greatly reduces the risk of pinch flats (snakebites). The wide profile provides a stable platform with less force required to mount tires.

Hi do you recommend 2 cross or 3 cross lacing for the 28hole?


LightBicycle 2022/05/10

Hi John, For the straight-pull head, only 3-cross lacing is available for 29er wheels mtb. If the head is J-bend and you want to get a more stiff wheel, then 3-cross lacing is a better option. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Are these AM930S rims offered in 28h?


LightBicycle 2021/10/25

Hi Merrick, I am sorry that we only have 32H mold for the AM930S-37mm 29er mtb bike rim at the moment. 28H will be ready a few weeks later. Thanks, Lightbicycle

LightBicycle 2022/04/07

Hi Johnny, Yes, the AM930S 28H 29er mtb bike rim is available now. Do you need two rims or the whole wheelset 29er? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi how dos the AMS930S Fly weight compare to the RM29C07?


LightBicycle 2022/04/02

Hi James, For starters, AM930S 29er bike rim and RM29C07 are from different lineups. AM930S was designed to gain extra vertical compliance and be able to keep the weight down by 10%. The use of T700 carbon fiber and nanotubes in key areas to further the vibration damping properties. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'm interested in the new S flow wheels. Would you tell me the difference between the new AM930S flow rim and the regular AM930. I now they both use the Recon Pro rim. What do you give up as far as strength goes with the new S flow rim. I have a Ibis Ripley v4, its a 120/130mm trail bike. I am 165lbs with gear. Looking for a light weight trail wheelset. I have a alloy wheelset that I will use for rougher trail riding/enduro . Thank you


LightBicycle 2022/01/18

Hi hariz, Here're some key differences between 29er bike rims AM930S and AM930 that might help you. 1. The riding experience. If you are riding a hardtail, you will feel a big difference during riding. AM930S provides more comfort due to the special design of the rim profile. But AM930 is better in vertical stiffness if that's what you are after. Or for a suspension bike. 2. Weight The "凸" structure makes the rim strong and is able to reduce 40g/rim compare to AM930. 3. Asymmetric design. Wheelset with AM930S can reach a better balance of spoke tension between the drive and non-drive side of the wheel thanks to the 3.3mm offset. AM930 is also an asymmetric rim, but it's only 2.0mm offset. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Eugene 2021/10/23

Hi! Are there any plans to release the s-flow profile in a 27.5 rim? Thanks!


LightBicycle 2021/10/25

Hi Eugene, I am sorry that we don't have a plan to make the AM930S in 27.5" at the moment. Because of the special design shape, every different spec would require a new mold and design process. So it might take some time. But I will inform you if we do have a plan to make a 650b version. Do you consider other models right now? Thanks, Lightbicycle
