Center Channel Hole This is a required option.

WITH HOLES: This is the traditional method. Holes are drilled in the center channel to allow the nipples to easily be fed through the rim. Tubeless tape is required to seal the rim.


WITHOUT HOLES: No holes are drilled in the center channel. Feeding the nipples through the rim is more challenging, but it allows for a tubeless setup without the need for tape. This kind of system is known as "road tubeless" and was made popular by Mavic. Some companies still refer to it as "UST style", however, UST is actually a specific interface between the tire and rim which was developed by a partnership between Mavic, Michelin, and Hutchinson.

Decal This is a required option.

Road rims use super light waterslide decals (glossy black). The decal is very thin and applied under a clearcoat so they are non-removeable.

Valve Stem This is a required option.

We include enough valves to cover your individual rim purchase. We use a lightweight black alloy anodized valves 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 valve core is removable so you can add sealant without removing your tire.

Tubeless Tape This is a required option.

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 rim page.

The 36mm deep 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 AR36 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


Hand-Built: Each wheelset is painstakingly built by hand to tension within 5% variance. Each spoke's tension rating is recorded in our system, as is the roundness and lateral tolerance.


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.


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


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, 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.

David 2019/04/23

I ride a recumbent bike with a 650B in the rear and a 406 in the front. I am working with SMC to have a carbon clincher wheel produced. I am interested in purchasing a single rear wheel from LightBicycle. The wheel that fits my needs is the "Disc 650B gravel wheels 29mm wide 36mm deep tubeless for cyclocross and gravel bikes". The hub spacing is 135mm What would be the pricing for this configuration. Thanks I have not finished the specification of the front wheel and would like many of the components to match. So I can make some changes before I place my order. On the front wheel I specified DT Swiss, with center lock and straight pull spokes in a Matte finish. The front wheel: 406-C30-30 Matte finish Presta valve 100mm Hub DT-Swiss Hub with center disc lock and QR skewers


LightBicycle 2019/04/25

Hi David, Yes, you can order the rear gravel wheel only from us, here's the quote for your ref. Rear wheel WG722 is USD333 with below configurations. --Rim: RG722, 29mm wide, 36mm deep, UD, matte, 24H, no brake surface? --Hub: Black DT SWISS 350, 135mm*QR, Straight pull, center lock, freehub? --Spokes: black Sapim CX-Ray, SP --Nipples: black alloy Do you like to include QR skewers? It's USD58/pair. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Colin 2019/05/10

Light bicycle, I have a Cannondale slate. Can you build me up a set of these wheels with the lefty front hub? I did not see the option for the front hub while browsing on my phone.


LightBicycle 2019/05/11

Hi Colin, We do have Lefty hubs available, mostly for MTB model wheels. For lefty 1.0 (lefty 50 or fork Cannondale Lefty Oliver), we offer DT SWISS 240s. Is that ok with you? What about rear hub size you like for 650B grave bike wheels? 12*142mm? Thanks, Lightbicycle
