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.

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 XC925' build the ultimate XC race wheelset.


ExoTek: Our Recon Pro rims are designed to come out of the molds as a finished product which requires the most high quality manufacturing processes. The new resin system has superior consistency and forms the smoothest and most durable finish we’ve ever created. From a lengthened fatigue life to more robust interlaminar bonds, ExoTek raises the bar in performance and aesthetic.


EcoTek : Built from the highest grade of steel, we’ve engineered a completely new series of molds and developed a process that delivers a near flawless product. More time is taken through the layup and assembly process so that no post-production finishing is required. This new process is more environmentally friendly because it requires less heating cycles, no sanding, and no painting.


BlackTek : Rims featuring BlackTek come out of the molds as a finished product. Traditionally, rims are wet-sanded to remove imperfections like excess resin and then sprayed with a clearcoat. BlackTek rims come with a factory finish and the outer carbon layer is never disturbed after the curing cycle is completed. This is the most hard wearing and scratch resistant finish we have ever produced.


Asymmetric : Over the years, we’ve optimized an asymmetric profile that maintains the outright impact performance of a symmetric design but enjoys the benefits of offset spoke holes. This design significantly equalizes spoke tension between drive and non-drive spokes which results in a stronger wheel build that stays true longer.


Tubeless : All of our rims are tubeless compatible with bead seat retention. In most cases a floor pump is all that is needed to seal our rims. The bead shape is tailored to each rim width to achieve the best fit. Our hookless and clincher profiles have a smooth radius to reduce the chance of a pinch flat.


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.

Hi. I'm Lee.This is Korea.The wheel set I want to order is about $1220.How much is the shipping and handling charge?If it's over $150, I have to pay a lot of taxes. Is there any good way?


LightBicycle 2019/02/12

Hi Lee, Thanks for your inquiry! For shipping cost, it is USD49.7 for one wheelset to South Korea by EMS delivery. For paypal fee, it is 3.5% handling dee charged. We can write the value lower on the shipping document, then you will not have to pay high tax cost. How much do you expect us to write on the shipping document? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Henrik 2018/10/27

Hi If the flyweight rim is going to be used as a rear wheel for normal XC riding (no big drops and alike), what would the weight limit bee ?? Kind regards Henrik


LightBicycle 2018/10/29

Hi Henrik, Using the flyweight as the front 29er wheel is only our recommendation to make sure your riding performance in the best condition. But if you are a lightweight rider and riding light XC, you can use the flyweight as the rear wheel if you insist. We will still recommend you using the flyweight for the front just to be safe. The rider weight would be 100kg. Thanks, Lightbicycle
