Our precision handbuilt asymmetrical 28mm 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 23mm 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-year after your original rim purchase.

  • 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 here
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Asymmetrical
    The profile allows for equalized spoke tension which creates a stronger wheel that stays true.
  • 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.
  • T700
    Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.

Les Hegedus : I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much I have been enjoying my Light Bicycle wheelset - they are awesome! I have a season of hard riding on them, and they are holding up great! They are light, stiff and fast! Everything I was hoping for! They also look AMAZING! The stickers matched up very well with my bike - I love my Light Bicycle wheels! I will be in the market next year for a set of Cyclocross wheels, and I am definitely coming to Light Bicycle for them!

Hi, Can these be built up using a 32-hole Shutter Precision PD-8 Dynamo Hub 9x100mm? Could I buy three wheels total (one pair built on DT240S, one front wheel on the custom hub)?

Hello Mauro, For tax, it is different for different country. We do not take charge of tax cost, so not sure how much you have to pay. But we can declare the value lower, then you do not have to pay high tax cost. Please let us know the value you expect us to declare, then we will do accordingly. It is okay to ship to Guangdong China. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi,what type of carbon wheel set would you suggest for me I race in cross country events in new zealand.
LightBicycle : (2017-12-09)
Hello Tony, Thanks for your inquiry! We have 29er 27mm wide standard/flyweight rim and 28mm wide asymmetric rim for XC riding. May I know your weight? Do you ride aggressively? Then we will do some recommendations. DT 240S hubs and Sapim cx-ray spokes are the lightest hubs and spokes we have here. Does that work for you? What hubs axle size for front and rear? Thanks, Lightbicycle
