    OVERVIEW

RIM

Bead type This is a required option.

Rim width (hook): 28mm external/21mm internal
Rim width (hookless): 28mm external/22.5mm internal

Both hook and hookless rims are built using the same dimensions and materials. The max tire pressure for hooked version of the rim is 160psi. The hookless version of the rims features more impact strength and a max tire pressure of 80psi.

The hookless version is designed with low pressure impact resistance in mind. If you are planning to run a tire pressure above 80psi, the hooked version would be a better choice.

Brake system This is a required option.

Road-Rim-High-TG-Surface-Grooved-Graphene-Surface

Non Disc - High TG Surface: Rim Brake 700C road rims use an advanced High TG resin system with a layer of graphene to help dissipate heat. The braking power and reliability is significantly improved over a basalt braking surface.

Non Disc - Grooved Graphene Surface: Our new resin system and construction method, combined with the 3k rim track, withstands over 280°C, dissipates heat, and lowers rim temperatures faster in between braking efforts. Gain confidence-inspiring brake performance on the steepest descents and wettest conditions with our matching brake pads. Also, graphene added to the rim brake track allows for greater resistance to overheating with improved heat dissipation and reduced temperature accumulation during heavy braking. The grooved track helps evacuate trapped moisture between pad and rim in wet conditions, and brings more resistance and force at the lever when conditions are dry.

Disc: The disc version does not have a rim brake track and features a unique disc specific layup process. Our new layup is about 10g ~30g lighter by reducing the unnecessary material and utilizing elements of our Flyweight construction method.

Valve Stem This is a required option.

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.

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.

The most versatile option in our road lineup, the 36mm can handle cyclocross, road racing, and all-day gravel rides. The mid-depth rim profile has a reassuring stiffness, building confidence through ruts and railing corners. It remains compliant for long distance and weighs at just 410g per rim.


This wide tubeless ready platform has a 21mm internal width, suitable for a wide range of tire choices.

High TG: Our new resin system and construction method, combined with the 3k rim track, withstands over 280°C, dissipates heat, and lowers rim temperatures faster in between braking efforts. Gain confidence-inspiring brake performance on the steepest descents and wettest conditions with our matching brake pads.


Graphene Brake Track : Graphene added to the rim brake track allows for greater resistance to overheating with improved heat dissipation and reduced temperature accumulation during heavy braking. The grooved track helps evacuate trapped moisture between pad and rim in the wet, and brings more resistance when conditions are dry so less force at the lever is required.


AeroTek: Our latest aerodynamic profile decreases lateral wind resistance and is both more stable and faster in a crosswind. A wider profile allows for larger and more efficient tires to be used without an aerodynamic penalty. Traditionally a tire can form a lightbulb shape when mounted on a narrow rim, but the airflow is much smoother with our wider rims.


DuoTek: Our clincher rims are manufactured in two pieces and then joined together. When designing the rims, our engineers, in every detail, demanded fewer joints. Fewer joints mean higher strength and stability.


TuffTek: A high-grade customized epoxy resin is used in our prepreg, creating a stable base for all of our road rims. Epoxy is less brittle than polyester resins and offers excellent flexural strength. Our consistent resin system, coupled with a precise layup schedule, allows for an extremely reliable and durable product.


Tubeless : All of our rims are tubeless compatible with bead seat retention. In most cases a floor pump is all that is needed to seal our rims. The bead shape is tailored to each rim width to achieve the best fit. Our hookless and clincher profiles have a smooth radius to reduce the chance of a pinch flat.


T700: Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.


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.

Hi, Do you guys build with hubs other than 240s and bitex? I was looking at a tune king/kong or newmen gen 2 centrelock hubs for some 35mm deep rims. Also at 72kgs, is 24/24 ample for road bike dise use? Cheers


LightBicycle 2019/03/04

Hi Dave, Of course, we can build with road disc wheelset with Tune KingKong, Hope, Chris King, Extralite(lightweight), Carbon-Ti(lightweight), Hope, etc. Which would you like? Here're some quotes for your reference. The wheelset is USD1064.4/pair built with RR36C02(36mm deep, 28mm wide) or RRU35c02(25mm wide). Tune king kong, 24H/24H, center lock, 12/100mm front, 12/142mm rear, sapim cx-ray bladed spokes. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, will the road rims also be availiable with the new finish of the Recon Pro MTB rims? Kind regards, Michael.


LightBicycle 2019/01/25

Hi Michael, For Road pro rims, they will be availble around March. It is wide road series. Are you looking for road or road disc rims? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Michael 2019/02/04

Hi, a non disc Road Pro rim with the paintless finish would be interesting. Will they have the same dimensions 28 x 36mm and a lower weight? Kind regards, Michael.


LightBicycle 2019/02/05

Hi Michael, The Pro road series is under development, it will apply the same black Tek as the MTB Recon Pro series. So they will have the same rim surface (organic carbon texture). It will be around 32mm wide road rims, currently, we still haven't got the rim weight information about new road disc series from our engineer team. I will contact you when it is ready. By the way, you email address has some problem. We sent a few emails to you a few days ago, but it looks like it failed. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Paul 2018/09/29

Hello, I'm interested in a pair of RR36C02 in this configuration: Hooked Disc UD Carbon 28 hole Matte finish Would these ship from a North American warehouse or directly from China? If from China, would I have to add the new tariff to the indicated price? Thanks


LightBicycle 2018/09/30

Hi Paul, Dear Paul Do you want the disc or non-disc rim? Our North American warehouse has the popular setup (disc version with UD, matte, 28H) offered. it's currently in stock. But if you want a non-disc version, the rim will be ordered to produce, and ship from China. We can discuss more by mail. Note that the decal would be nonremovable waterslide decal in black if you want graphics on the rims. Thanks Lightbicycle

Is the decal "non-removeable black waterslide graphic" the same as the graphics on the photos? Is it available at China warehouse also?


LightBicycle 2018/09/18

Hi, Marvin 1. Yes, the "non-removable black waterslide graphic" is the one you saw from the photos. We stock the RR36C02 (28mm wide, 36mm deep) road rims with this decal on. You may also notice that it's glossy. Yes, the stocked rims are with glossy decals. 2. This decal is available at China warehouse as well, but not online though. You can contact us by mail or through Intercom for more details. We also offer customized decals in case you are interested. Thanks Lightbicycle

I've done a few rides on these now. RR36C02 with Dt240 disc fitted with Conti Force and Attack tyres 25/23. Happy and the profile with the 23 on the front is nice. The transition from tyre to rim is a nice shape.


LightBicycle 2018/08/06

Hi Haydn, Glad to see your comment about your road disc wheels. Will you be kind enough to share some pictures for your bike? I would love to see how they turn out on your bike. And put the picture on our website gallery if it's ok. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Which nipples do you recommend for these rims? Are washers required?


LightBicycle 2018/07/23

Hi Samuel, Normally, we use sapim proyax secure lock nipples for our bike wheels. We do not use nipple washers here for building wheels. The spoke holes’ wall strength is strong enough. But if you insist to use nipple washers, it is okay if you do not mind weight adding. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Sebastian 2018/07/06

Hi, will there be a lighter non disc version of these rims, maybe 420g? And will you do (laser) textured brake tracks as seen on Campagnolo or Bontrager wheels for better braking in the wet? Kind regards, Sebastian


LightBicycle 2018/07/06

Hi Sebastin, Lighter version certainly means sacrificed some strength and impact resistance of the rim. Are you sure you want to make a lighter version? If so, I will need to learn more about your riding. Can you kindly provide below info to me so that I can consult with our engineer to see if there's a possibility to make the non-disc version lighter? Yes, we can make texture brake surface on rims. 1. Your weight. 2. What kind of riding you do? 3. Are you an aggressive rider? Thanks, Lightbicycle


S

Seabstian 2018/07/07

I am 72kg and ride only on the road, with some racing. What is your rider weight limit for the 440g rims? And with - textured - you mean your usual carbon-basalt brake track (picture 1) or something roughened like Bontrager does with its "laser control" (picture 2)? 1: https://forum.tour-magazin.de/attachment.php?attachmentid=620725&d=1502533327 2: https://i1.wp.com/aerogeeks.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/BT18_Aeolus_XXX_Wheels_52.jpg

Sebastian 2018/07/08

And do you also offer Carbon-Ti X-hubs SP road?


LightBicycle 2018/07/09

Dear Sebastian, Yes, Carbon Ti hubs are available. Do you want to build a complete wheelset from us using Carbon Ti hubs and RR36C02 flyweight rims (410g+/-15)? If yes, i can send you this road disc wheelset quotation to your email address. Thanks, Lightbicycle


LightBicycle 2018/07/18

Hi Seabastian, The recommended rider weight is under 90kg. As for the brake track. The RR36C02 is using our new high TG resin technology, which can bear the 240-degree heat. The default weave is 3K (same as your first picture shows). You can customize the brake track weave if you like, both standard or CNC carving pattern like the second picture shows. Note that we will charge extra for customized brake track. Let me know if you need a customized the brake track pattern. Better to provide the graphic for the pattern if possible. Thanks, Lightbicycle
