TECH

Our new generation of Flyweight XC rims are updated with a wider profile and a front/rear specific layup. They are targeted towards cross country racers who seek every possible edge on the course.

Our goal with this iteration was to produce the lightest possible rim-set without sacrificing performance or reliability. The ultralight front rim utilizes a blend of Toray T700 and T800 carbon fiber and receives our spoke hole patching treatment, which maximizes weight reduction. The rear rim uses a continuous spoke bed and a stiffer reinforced layup design to create a balanced feel between the front and rear wheels.

Now with a wider profile, increased resistance to impacts, as well as a tailored front/rear design, the XC725' build the ultimate XC race wheelset.

Any experience using these rims with 47-48mm road tubeless tires like the Rene Herse Switchback Hills or WTB Horizons?


LightBicycle 2019/09/28

Hi Paul, Our recommended tire width for XC925 (30mm wide, 23mm deep) is 2.1~2.4 inch. So 47~48mm (about 1.9 inches) would be too narrow. You probably would have trouble with the tire mounting. Wider tires have better tracking and performance. Why not go for wide 650B bike tires? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I have a 2015 Giant trance 2 27.5 with stock wheels. I currently run 2.4” tyres and would like a really lightweight wheelset. I mostly do cross country and single track. I don’t do much downhill but once in a while we try some easy downhill stuff. I weight 78kgs and currently have shimano 1x11 XT system. I don’t mind any brand of hubs but I prefer them to be silent. What do you recommend? Thanks, Nigel


LightBicycle 2019/05/28

Hi Nigel, 1. DT hubs are the quiet and good quality hub that we offer at the moment compare to other brands. We have DT Swiss 240S/350/Chris King hubs If you like. 2. The XC725 27.5 XC wheelset would be a good fit for you since you are riding XC and not a heavy rider. If you somehow riding aggressively, you can choose the standard version of XC725 for both the front and rear. Here are a recommendation specs for your ref, let me know if you want anything different. You can add the wheel to your cart by https://www.lightbicycle.com/site/share-cart?id=450 Thanks, Lightbicycle
