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.

One 10 yard roll of tape will be included. It is typically covers 2 rims with two laps each or 4 rims with one lap each.The high tensile tubeless tape features a natural rubber adhesive that does not leave a residue on the rims. On mountain bike rims, one layer of 18mm width tape is strong enough to seal the access holes which makes for the lightest tubeless setup.

Teleport to the rim page.

Built to handle the most technical trails on the mountain, the AM733’s 33mm internal width is a perfect fit for the new breed of ultra wide 2.4-2.8” tires. You’ll appreciate the confidence boost with the massive air volume, impressive traction, and bead seat bumps to keep those big tires in order.


Available in two layup styles, the standard layup is suitable for most riders, but if you are over 200 pounds or tend to ride your equipment really hard, consider the extra layer of 3k carbon in the EN version. Not only does this support G-Out forces, but it also makes the EN733 incredibly stiff and perfect for the hardest charging of riders.

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.


Asymmetrical: The profile allows for equalized spoke tension which creates a stronger wheel that stays true.


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.

Adam Mitchell : My YT Capra Al Comp..650bPimped with EN733 rims and DT Swiss Hubs..Magic Mary's 2.35 (seriously wide tyres)Looks and rides beautifullyNew Zealand..Thanks Light Bicycles. I really like them, they're certainly a lot lighter , even with wider tyres. And feel really well built. My bike shop even commented on the quality of the build. Also I've had a lot of positive comments while out riding.. And I've been recommending Light Bicycles to everyone.

How do I order a single replacement front wheel? I want to match my rear wheel but your website seems to only allow me to order a complete set of front & rear. Thank you.


LightBicycle 2019/02/01

Hi Philip, Purchase a single bike wheel is currently not available online, however, I can create the invoice for you. What wheel configuration are you looking for? Pls tell me the detailed specs and I will quote and create invoice accordingly. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Brandon 2018/04/22

Why is the equivalent wheel build of the B13 wheelset cheaper than the AM733? How do they really differ?


LightBicycle 2018/04/23

Hi Brandon, The essential difference between those two model is the rim profile. AM733 is with asymmetrical rim profile while RM650BC13 is symmetric. Asymmetrical rim profile, it provides better spoke tension balance between drive-side and non-drive side. It will make rims/wheels more durable, and it provides 2 years warranty service. So asymmetrical rims/wheels are with much higher price You can choose the rims building on your own condition. Or if you like, I can make some suggestion to you. But I will need some info from you. 1. your weight 2. tire width 3. what kind of riding you do? aggressive or not? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Stefan, Thanks for your reply! We would recommend you our AM728 and WM650BC05 wheelset. They are suitable for the 2.4"~2.5" tire and strong enough for your weight. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Please can you suggest what wheels for a 2016 Santa Cruz nomad 3 for trail and enduro riding. I am 185 lb. 110-15 front and 142- 12 back. Am looking for a light weight build and wondering what hub and spoke build you would recommend. Many thanks.


LightBicycle 2017/11/06

Hi Stefan, We recommend our WM650BC05 wheelset and WM650BC13 wheelset to you. We recommend DT SWISS 240s hub and Sapim CX-RAY spoke for you, which is lighter and stronger. What do you think about that? May I know your tire width? Then we can check which wheelset is better for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Is it possible to build these with i9 hubs?


LightBicycle 2017/08/11

Hi Weston, Thanks for your massage! Currently, we have DT Swiss 240S/350 and Hope hubs in our China wheel building lines, no I9 hubs available. If you like wheels with I9 hubs, you can place an order on the our North America website under https://us.lightbicycle.com/(please find attached pictures for your reference). The wheelset will be built and shipped through our US office. Does it work for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi LB, Im 180 lbs and does drops and not so crazy big jumps what do you recommend? I got 2017 pivot mach 6 carbon 27.5 boost rear axle 12x148 and 15/110 front not sure if its boost or not, It would be great if i could purchase a lime green hub color and decals and UD matte rims. Pls reply asap. TY


LightBicycle 2017/03/06

Hello Elmer, Thanks for your inquiry. I saw your other message on our website only. According to your info, I think our 34mm wide 650B enduro asymmetric wheels are strong enough for your riding. For your front hub, I'm not sure if that is with 15*100mm thru axle or 15*110mm boost. Please measure your fork spacing to confirm the correct axle size, thank you. Thanks, Lightbicycle
