TECH

Featuring a wide 28mm external width, this tubeless-ready rim set offers a wide and stable platform for everything from road to gravel tires.

With the 21mm internal width and 46mm depth, the 46mm disc rims are well suited as an aerodynamic gravel race rim or a deep dish cyclocross wheelset. The width is versatile enough for 25-28c road tires and lightens up your road bike to give you an edge at the next Gran Fondo!

Bertin: In 2020, I bought an AR46 wheelset for my endurance bike (the red one), I really like these wheels. This year, I decided to buy a Subito e-road bike (the blue one). I also wanted to upgrade my wheels but the problem was the electric motor mounted in the rear hub with a diameter of 110mm and requiring 32 spokes. I send a request to Lightbicycle wondering if it would be possible to adjust the drilling angle to accommodate this larger hub. Their R&D department made the calculation and they customized the drilling of the rear rim for me. The result is stunning! I really like my bikes with the AR46 Wheelset. They have the same geometry, so I go from one to another without barely noticing.

Hello. I want to order the FALCON rim AR46 disc Road/CX/Gravel. But first; Can you tell me the pantone color for orange decals? And how about tax, is this incuded within the shippingcosts to the Netherlands? I want 28 holes for this disk wheels, my weight is 90 kg. I assume this won’t be a problem? Greetings Peter


LightBicycle 2020/09/11

Hi Peter, 1. The orange color code is Pantone Orange 021C. Here's an example photo for your ref. http://pic.lightbicycle.com/order/all/images/compressed/15592898919986261.png 2. We do offer a Tax-Prepaid Delivery for packages to the Netherlands. The cost would be USD139.2 for one pair of wheels road wheels. You don't have to pay for the tax during the process, it's included in the cost. You can see the option listed on the cart and checkout page. 3. 28H spokes would be ok for your riding on AR46 disc Road/CX/Gravel. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, Would it cost extra for me to just have the Lightbicycle decal around the valve stem in white on top of the clear coat? Thanks.


LightBicycle 2020/05/26

Hi Jua, We can offer the stickers for the valve triangle logo to you for free. Are you also considering order any road bike disc rims 700C? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I was wondering, whether the AR46 Disc could be finished as the WR50 disc. I really like the look of the WR50 disc but I like the dimensions of the AR46 better than the ones of the WR50


LightBicycle 2020/01/16

Hi Benno, Yes, we can do finish close to what WR50 looks like, note that WR series (WR38/50) came out of the mold as a finished product, no post painting or finishing what so ever. The closest finish is satin, you can see the comparison between UD, matte, and satin from the attachment. We just sent pictures to your email address for these road disc rims pictures. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Looking on getting these rims to build a set for my gravel bike, I usually run my tires (40C) around 30 PSI, So do you recommend hook-less for this set up, I'll be using I9 28 hole hubs. Also, I would like internal Spoke nipples as well. Do you have any Idea after payment it is done will take for you guys to send them? Thanks,


LightBicycle 2019/09/17

Hi Jeremy, 1. As you run the tire at low pressure (30psi), the AR46 road disc hookless version would be a good fit. 2. We can make the rims with internal nipple use drilling (2.5mm diameter) with no extra charges added. 3. Normally, it would take 12 business day for a rim for manufacturing, another 7~10 days for shipping & delivery. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Sascha 2019/08/12

Hi, For the AR 46 disc wheels, would you recommend the hook or hookless version for tubeless tires? Thanks, Sascha


LightBicycle 2019/08/12

Hi Sascha, For hookless version, it is better to ride less than 60PSI for tire pressure. For hook version, it can hole max 135PSI for tire pressure. How much tire pressure will you ride on AR46 disc wheels 28mm wide? Thanks, Lightbicycle
