Sapim Race – Our strongest and stiffest spoke. These spokes are suitable for heavy or extremely aggressive riders who need a stiffer wheel.
Sapim CX-Ray – The lightest spoke in our lineup is still quite strong due to the elasticity and amazing fatigue life.

DT Competition Race - All Mountain and XC spoke used by the Chinese location as a substitue for the D-Light (depending on availability)

Pillar PSR X-TRA 1420 - An inexpensive bladed spoke, great for road and cyclocross riding.

Teleport to the rim page.

The XC924 wheels blur the lines between XC race and All Mountain. The 24mm internal width can handle narrower 2.1” tires, but can also mount up to 2.4” with confidence when the trail conditions turn nasty. Whether attacking the climbs on technical XC courses on the weekend, or shredding the descents on your local trails mid-week, this wheel is equally at home.


This high-value modern U-shaped profile has become one of our most popular wheels for trail riders. Oversized hookless lips, bead seat bumps and a sensible sub-400 gram layup design keep things competitively light and reliable.

Hookless: Carbon fiber flows continuously over the bead area to provide the best impact resistance and a significant strength increase compared to a clincher rim.


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.


T700: Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.


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.


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.


U-Shape: U-shape profile spreads the force of impacts and creates a more robust product.


Bead lock: 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.


Tubeless: While the rims are optimized for a tubeless setup with the addition of tubeless tape, they also work with tubes.


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.

Hello, What is the tire width range for the 29er 38mm rim? I'm torn between skinnier XC specific tires and plus size. Thank you, Jason


LightBicycle 2017/10/19

Hi Jason, Thanks for your inquiry! We have got your message on our website. For RM29C14(38mm wide) rim, it can fit 2.3"~2.8" tire. Which tire width will you use? Then we can check on whether it works. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Cam 2017/04/25

Hello, I'm looking to upgrade my wheels off me 2017 Trek Fuel EX 9.8, they are Bontranger Line 30's, looking for something the same width. Would also like a decent Hub with good engagement, but also as light as possible. Would you please have any recommendations? Cheers Cam


LightBicycle 2017/04/26

Hello Cam, Thanks for your inquiry. According to your info, we’d like to recommend the 30mm wide 29er wheels which are similar to your current wheels. However, may I know what your riding terrain is normally? Do you ride aggressively? What is your weight? Then we will double check if 30mm wide wheels are strong enough for your riding. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi LB, Can you email me a quote for this build? - All Mountain Cross country carbon 29er MTB wheelset 30mm wide tubeless compatible (29C19). I ride mostly Single track trails and fairly "ok" downhills. Nothing crazy. But i want something strong and light. I don't feel like I need enduro wheels. I weigh 70kgs. If you have some recommendations I'm open to them as well. Note in my specs below that my FRONT is a Boost Fork. My REAR is 12/142mm standard. Front axle: 15 / 110mm BOOST Rear axle: 12/142mm (NON-Boost) Freehub body: Shimano MTB 10/11S Brake system: 6-bolt Front holes: 32H Rear holes: 32H Spoke head: J-bend Hub Color: Orange Hub Brand: Hope Hub Model: Pro 4 44T Spoke: Sapim CX Ray Nipple: Brass Black Finish: matte Weave: UD Decal: Black Valve Stem: Add Valve Stem Tubeless Tape: None


LightBicycle 2016/12/13

Hello Patrick, Thanks for your inquiry. The 30mm wide 29er wheelset price as required (with Hope pro4 front boost/ rear 12*142mm standard hub and Sapim cx-ray spokes) is $887/pair. The valve stem is $7 each. The delivery cost is $78 for one wheelset to USA by EMS. All pricing in USD. The 30mm width is design for gentle all mountain riding. If you take downhill riding also, it will be great to choose the wider 34mm/ 35mm/ 38mm width wheels. They are much stronger and durable enough for aggressive riding also. What do you think of this? Thanks, Lightbicycle

I want to put 3.0 inch tires on a 29 rim. I am not a technical mountain bike rider. 1. What is the recommended tire size range to put on this rim? 2. If not this rim, do you have a suggestion for rims for 3.0 inch tires?


LightBicycle 2016/11/15

Hello Chris, Thanks for your inquiry. The recommend tires width for 30mm width rim are 2.1’’-2.7’’. Our 38mm and 50mm wide 29er rims are able to work with 3.0 inch tires. May I know what your riding terrain is normally? Do you ride aggressively? What is your weight? Then we will do some recommendations and quote accordingly. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Mat 2016/10/26

Looking for the lightest possible wheelset with boost hubs and rim inner width of 24 mm. The choice is obviously then the DT240. Would you recommend the 28 spoke version? I ride cross country and weigh approx 85 kg.


Light-Bicycle 2016/10/26

Hello Mat, Thanks for your inquiry. Normally, we recommend 32H spoke version. More spokes give the rim greater strength and rigidity. According to your details, it will be great go with 32H. It is much stronger. Thanks, Light-bicycle

I didn't see an option for 28h J-bend DTSwiss 240 Boost hubs on your build options. Is this option available? Thanks. BTW I've been riding and racing (XC) for two seasons on a set of wheels I built with your rims (RM29C19 Front, RMXC923 Rear). They don't need to be trued and are holding up really well. I'm very happy with the rims and have been recommending them.


Light-Bicycle 2016/10/08

Hello Cris, Thanks for your continued support and happy to hear that you like our rims. Currently, only 28H DT 240S straight pull boost hubs and 32H DT 240S J-bend boost hubs are available, not 28H J-bend boost hubs. Does that work for you? Thanks, Light-bicycle
