Our precision handbuilt asymmetrical 34mm wide wheelsets are incredibly durable but at a respectable weight. Light enough to enter an XC race one day and strong enough for a full-on Enduro race the same weekend! The 28mm internal width maintains a modern tire profile without squaring off the side knobs too much.


For this product line, we decided to produce only the most popular and best product styles so that we can maintain inventory. DT Swiss 350, 240, and Hope Pro 4 Evo 32h 6-bolt wheelsets laced to UD Matte rims can ship within 3 business days !

* For unique hole drilling and alternate options, please contact us for special orders.

* In a addition to our standard 1 Year Warranty, Crash Replacement covers you for rider errors like chasing a big jump. This policy provides you with a 25% discount off the current retail price of the rim for up to 2-years after your original rim purchase.

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 here
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.
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 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 profile spreads the force of impacts and creates a more robust product.
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.
While the rims are optimized for a tubeless setup with the addition of tubeless tape, they also work with tubes.
The profile allows for equalized spoke tension which creates a stronger wheel that stays true.
Carbon fiber flows continuously over the bead area to provide the best impact resistance and a significant strength increase compared to a clincher rim.
Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.

Ed :

Hi. I'm looking at the dt swiss 240s hubs for a build. Can you supply them set up for a 20mm front axle on the 100mm width hub (no boost), and how much extra would it be to upgrade to the 36 or 54 tooth star ratchet?

2016-09-26

Light-Bicycle :

Hello Ed, Thanks for your inquiry. Currently, only front 15mm TA/ rear 12*142mm TA are available. You can buy an adaptor to convert the front hub. Does that work for you? Or you can buy the rims only and build the wheels at your local shops also. Thanks, Light-bicycle
