TECH

Light enough for racing, the XC724 is tough enough to handle the demands of everyday all-mountain riding. Whether you are running race tires or mounting up some beefier trail treads, the 24mm inner width provides a versatile platform to build up a lightweight wheelset.

Using our modern hookless U-Shaped profile, bead seat bumps, and tubeless ready profile, the XC724 is designed to exceed the demands of today's hard charing trail and all-mountain riders, without added weight. The additional stiffness of carbon fibre over your alloy wheelset will have you railing turns and blasting through rough terrain with new-found confidence.

Bernd: I was looking for a carbon wheelset for my 2014 Santa Cruz Nomad that I could build myself and found Lightbicycle through Ali Clarkson's wheel building instruction video. Getting in contact with Lightbicycle was easy and with their recommendation, I chose the AM724 (RM650BC19) rim with DT comp spokes (they were also helping me to figure out the right spoke length for the existing hubs that I planned to reuse). After ordering I was able to see the progress of the rim manufacturing process every step of the way, which I think is a very nice feature. Rims arrived and building the wheels was a breeze! The Maxxis tires went on the rim with a regular floor pump, which was a first for me - in the past I always had to use air boosts to seat my tubeless tires. I have ridden the wheels for about 300 miles by now and am really happy with their performance and stability - acceleration and stiffness are very good for the riding that I am doing.

LightBicycle 2017/11/07

Hi Todd, Thanks for your inquiry! It is okay to order front wheel only. Which hub and spokes do you like for AM724 front wheel? What hub axle size do you like? 15*100mm? Thanks, Lightbicycle

With these rims are they burly enough to race on or will they brake?


LightBicycle 2017/07/14

Hi sir, Thanks for your inquiry! May i know your weight please? What tire size will you use? Do you ride aggressively? Then we can check whether AM724 rims are strong enough or not. Actually, our rims are durable and tought. It is not easy to break them. Thanks, Lightbicycle
