Valve Stem This is a required option.

None

Add Valve Stem USD +7

We include enough valves to cover your individual rim purchase. We use a lightweight black alloy anodized valve with an oversized concave collar for easy gripping. A rubber o-ring goes in between the rim and the collar to help seal the rim and match the contour of the rim profile. The vavle core is removeable so you can add sealant withoutn removing your tire.

Tubeless Tape This is a required option.

None

Add Tubeless Tape USD +6

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 wheelset building page.

With a stable 27mm inner width, U-shaped profile, and strong hookless design, the AM627 (RM26C03) provides an incredibly durable platform.


Versatility is the name of the game. The rim mounts 2.1” to 2.5” tires and tackles a huge range of terrain - all with the playfulness that only a 26” bike can provide. The EN layup has an extra wrap of 3k carbon fiber around the nipple bed, reinforced sidewalls to support G-out forces, and increased rim stiffness, increasing suitability for aggressive riders over 200 pounds. The AM627 features our new U-shaped profile, bead seat bumps, and a tubeless ready setup that is up for whatever the mountain brings.

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


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.


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.


For Non-Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 15 Months Warranty
For Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 3 Years Warranty. Light Bicycle is pleased to offer the options to purchase an extended 5-year Premium warranty or lifetime Premium warranty with minimum charge respectively.

Crash Replacement: It is applicable with the same period as to warranty time range that you purchased for the rim in terms of 15-month/ 3-year/ 5-year/ Lifetime, with 10%+ discount subject to rim model.

David Ford : The wheels arrived last Tuesday, quick service. They are really beautiful, well finished and true. I had to buy different valves, the Stans 35mm valves are too short for the deep rim and I now have 44mm valves.Here is a photograph of the bike now, I love the three levels of carbon weave, frame, fork and wheel.The wheels have made a big difference, the bike is smoother over rough ground and turns better.

Hello I want to use your rims for dirt jumping, because they are light and stiff enough for my riding style, i suppose. But one question left: I will use rim with tubes, and usually I ride 65-70 psi in my tyres. Won't your rim brake under this pressure? i'm 70 kg and have technical riding style. If it will break, will you make some special rims for dirt jumping and pump track in the future? I think they will be popular! Thank you in advance.


LightBicycle 2018/09/17

Hi Mitya, For the RM26C03 (MTB rim, 33mm wide), The hookless version and only OK for the tire pressure under 40psi. There is gravel 650b rim(RG722,29mm wide, 36mm deep) ) here. Is 650b size OK for you? RG722 is OK for 65-70 psi. You can check out more about the rim at https://www.lightbicycle.com/Disc-650B-gravel-rims-29mm-wide-36mm-deep-tubeless-for-cyclocross-and-gravel-bikes.html We will discuss more with you by mail. Please do remember to check your inbox. Thanks,

I prefer to wait until you got this rims in Euro warehouse. As I read, shipping from this warehouse is free, instead $90 from China warehouse. Best regards

Hi Paco, I will let you know when RM26C03 is stocked in EU and quote for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Team, I'm a big fan of your wheels , and currently run the RM26C03 (33mm width / non HD). I'm looking to fit Schwalbe Procore to protect the rims and run lower pressures without burping the tyres. Have you done any testing of Procore on these rims, and are they able to take 6 bar of pressure? Thanks, Callan


LightBicycle 2017/12/28

Hello Callan, Thanks for your support. For the Procore system, we do not have a lot of testing information on it, but so far the customers we've heard from say it's working. Personally, I think our 33mm rims do not have tire burping issues. The larger issue is with g-outs, not impacts from too low of pressure (generally speaking), so I am not sure if Procore is super beneficial. For inner chamber, it can work with 4-6 bar. It will be better if you go with 4bar. For outer chamber, you can try 0.8-1.5 bar. Thanks, Lightbicycle

What is the tire size for the listed max pressure? Interested in running these rims on a dirt jump bike for cruiser class BMX racing, and hoping to get closer to 65/70psi. Is that possible?


LightBicycle 2017/08/09

Hi Crabby, For all our mtb rims, it can hold to 75psi. The rim strength is okay. But we are worring the tires will blow out if you ride around 65/70psi while cornoring. It is better to ride less than 40psi on these rims. Is your bike BMX? We only hear about 20" BMX bikes. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hey LB, i was wondering if the RM26C03 will come with angled holes? Thanks, Martin


LightBicycle 2017/03/28

Hello Martin, Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, the RM26C03 is drilled with angle hole ( /-6 degree). Picture attached for your reference. Angled spoke holes allows the nipple to pull straight in line with the spoke for reduced stress. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi. I am planning to buy the heavy duty version of this RM26CO03. Please let me know the ERD of the heavy duty carbon rim so I can determine the right length os spokes. Thank you


Light-Bicycle 2016/04/25

Hi Winston, For the RM26CO03 with heavy duty, the ERD is 515mm. We will add more carbon materials to the wall thickness to reinforce the heavy duty version. The ERD are the same for the AM and HD version. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Ivan 2016/04/02

Hello, I currently own a pair of Industry 9 Torch Trail 32h 26in Alum and I'm looking to swap the rims to wider carbon rims. I like the Torch hubs and color spokes and was wondering if I can still use the same spokes with the RM26C03 rim. I don't know enough about what the correct spoke lenght is. The Torch Trail rims are 534mm ERD and I think the spokes length 266mm (I think). Thanks!


Light-Bicycle 2016/04/05

Hello Ivan, Thanks for your inquiry. Sorry for the late reply. We were on vacation last 3 days. For our RM26C03 rim, it is with 515mm ERD. For spoke length, it will be also different if the lacing is different. So, you can check below link to get correct spoke length. http://www.prowheelbuilder.com/spokelengthcalculator/ You only have to fill in rim ERD:515mm, and choose the hubs and the lacing pattern you like. Then you will get the spoke length. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Jeff 2017/06/12

Ivan, did you ever find a wider carbon rim that would work with your existing I9 Torch hubs and spokes with the 534 ERD? If so, do you mind telling me which ones you found? Thanks!


LightBicycle 2017/06/13

Hi Jeff, If you use the 26er downhill riding, I recommend you 38mm wide 26er heavy duty rim which is more durable and specially designed for downhill riding. Thanks, Lightbicycle
