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.

MTB carbon rim profile

Teleport to the wheelset building page.

The 36mm deep rim is one of the newest members of our Road/Gravel lineup and the perfect partner for your next adventure. As more drop bar bikes become compatible with multiple wheels sizes, utilize these 650b rims with burly tires when the road gets rough.


Running larger tires brings better bump compliance, greater flat protection, and more grip. With a hooked bead and an internal width of 22mm, the 36mm can run anything from the super low pressures for gravel, right up to high pressure when the ride turns to pavement.

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


U-shape: The aerodynamic shape makes road tubeless rims lightweight but still stiff, keeping them stable in cross winds.The advantages of the U-shaped Road bike rim 700C


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.


Tubeless ready: beadlock design making this light weight road rims better tubeless setup and better sealing.


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.


Aerodynamic profile: Improved aerodynamic design for a better crosswind protection.


Wider: Idea for wider tyres, disc brake equipped road bikes, road races, gravel races and cyclocross.


Flyweight layup: It is with Hybrid construction of Toray T-800 and T-700 lightweight gravel layup for weight saving.


For Non-Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 15 Months Warranty
For Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 3 Years Warranty. Light Bicycle is pleased to offer the options to purchase an extended 5-year Premium warranty or lifetime Premium warranty with minimum charge respectively.

Crash Replacement: It is applicable with the same period as to warranty time range that you purchased for the rim in terms of 15-month/ 3-year/ 5-year/ Lifetime, with 10%+ discount subject to rim model.

Hello, is it possible to buy a wheelset with this rim with a Cannondale Lefty 1.0 hub at the front? I am riding a Cannondale Slate. I am weighing 71 kg. Are 24 spokes at the front and back possible for me? Had no problems on my other gravel bike with 700c wheels with DT Swiss 511db rims and 24 spokes at the front and back. Thanks Chris


LightBicycle 2018/06/04

Hi Chris, Do you like lefty hub with 24H? Currently, we only have lefty hub with 32H in stock. I have to check with hub suppliers and will get back to you soon. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, Can you tell me whether you can build these rims with a 36 hole straightpull DT Swiss j bend rear hub and a SP Dynamo 32 hole front hub? If you cannot supply the dynamo front hub do you have other dynamo hubs you can offer? Otherwise, please can you provide a price for the rear wheel and the front rim. Thanks Justin


LightBicycle 2018/03/30

Dear Justin Thank you for your inquiry! I am Charlie from LIGHT BICYCLE. Sorry to tell you that we don't have 36H hubs. For road wheels, 32H is strong enough. It's very rare that people ask about 36H. So, we do not order 36H hubs in stock. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Serge 2018/03/05

Hello, I am trying to decide which rim to use for a 650b bike that will see use on the road as well as on light trails. I weight 175lbs and I prefer to err on the side of durability. I plan to run 650b x 2.1" MTB tires (like the WTB Nano) at about 20-25 PSI, or 650b x 48cm road tires at about 35-40 PSI. I would like to run tubeless rims/tires. Also, I would like the rear rim to be drilled asymmetrically (offset 3mm ideally) while the front is symmetrical. With that list of requests, which rim would you recommend?


LightBicycle 2018/03/06

Hi Serge, The best we can do is drilled RG722 with 1.0mm offset. But it would require adding 35g to reinforce the rim strength. Does it work for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle


S

Serge 2018/03/06

How about the AM724 as an alternate?


LightBicycle 2018/03/07

Hi Serge, The best we can do is drilled RG722 with 1.0mm offset. Is it okay for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Nick 2018/02/13

Hi I've just purchased a pair of your RG722 rims. Before building them, I have a couple of questions: 1. Do you recommend the use of nipple washers between the spoke nipple and rim - with aluminium rims I normally use these washers on rims that do not have eyelets on the spoke holes. 2. With aluminium rims, I apply a little oil to the nipple where it bears against the rim. Do you recommend lubrication between the nipple and rim on your rims, and if so, what sort of lubrication. Regards Nick


LightBicycle 2018/02/13

Dear Nick, 1. We do not use nipple washers here for building wheels. The spoke holes’ wall strength is strong enough. But if you insist to use nipples, it is okay if you do not mind weight adding. 2. We do use lubrication oil while wheel-building. But it's a local brand, you probably can't find it in your country. I suggest you can buy it from your local bike shop. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I would like to know if this rim profil is avialable in 700c? Thank you Philipp


LightBicycle 2018/01/23

Hello Philipp, Thanks for your inquiry. There is a new 36mm depth 700C rim which is similar to RG722. Please find attached rim profile for reference. Does that work for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle
