TECH

Wider, stronger and stiffer. When aggressive riding is in your DNA, the 933 is the rim answering the call. With a wide profile, this rim is designed to work perfectly with the new breed of ultra wide trail tires. This huge air volume will give you stability and an insane amount of traction that will encourage riding in the nastiest of conditions. The ability to safely run lower pressure while enjoying the lightweight, quiet and dampened ride carbon provides, will have you shredding the trails like never before.

This rim comes in two different layup styles. While the standard layup is suitable for most riders, the EN version features an extra layer of 3k carbon for heavier riders, or those notoriously tough on equipment. Not only does this help support G-Out forces, but it also makes the EN933 one of our stiffest options.

E-bike Approved! This wheel's Enduro Version is designed to be compatible with mid-drive e-bikes.

Oliver: I came across LightBicylce whilst researching for new carbon wheels for my Specialized Levo Comp. Hands down the best site in terms of product information and responsiveness from the team. This gave me great comfort ordering and the LB team were contactable throughout the process and helpful at every step which was greatly appreciated. Cannot recommend more highly, a pleasure to deal with and when the wheels arrived clearly a great product. Thanks Team LB!

Sahril: What an awesome LB rims for a raw project. I rode a Stumpy Evo which had the raw carbon finish and I was searching next for the highlight upgrade the wheelset. Found LB after much recommendation from fellow MTB rider. I decided to "engaged" them directly instead of buying from the dealer. What a pleasant surprised that the customer service was top notch. Swift email reply almost on every encounter pre-sales and post-sales. I've not completed the wheelset project yet as I'm still awaiting for Maxxis DHR/DHF skinwalls. So those are some pictures I shared at the current moment. Model: AM933/29"/28H/12K Matte Twill finish Hubs: i9 Hydra Nipple/Spokes: DT Swiss

Looking to buy my 2nd set of rims from you (actually a whole wheelset this time!). Wondering if there are any current coupon codes for return customers like me? Most likely going to order from the USA inventory (if that matters) so I get them faster. Looking at a AM928 wheelset combo. Thanks! Joe


LightBicycle 2019/05/31

Hi Joe, We do offer some discount for returning customers, let me know the AM928 29er wheel specs you like to order and we can check on the discount accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Your rims look great. I am most interested in the 933. My question is about it’s rider weight limit. Most other mtb rims in your line set a weight limit of 145kg, but the 933 has a significantly lower 125kg limit. Being it is a DH capable rim, can you please briefly explain the eason for it’s lower weight limit rating? Thank you, Dj


LightBicycle 2019/02/27

Hi Dj, 135kg is ok for AM933 29er rims. What's your weight? Are you worried about the weight limit of the rims? We 've been Conservative about the rider weight to prevent some heavy rider riding aggressively make rims less durable. Normally, 135kg won't be a problem. You can choose the enduro version 933 to make the wheels stronger. With durable hubs like DT SWISS, you will get a great wheelset, what configuration are you looking for? Maybe I can make some recommendations for you if you like. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Just wanted to know if you would note the cost of the item as $350 nz dollars in the shipment documentation to assist with costing at this end?


LightBicycle 2018/11/21

Hi Tim, Sure, we can set the declared value on the shipment document so you can pay less or none tax as you wish. Usually, we put US$220 on the documents, which is about NZ$320. This will fit your requirements. Thanks, Lightbicycle
