    OVERVIEW

RIM

Bead type This is a required option.

hook USD +8

hookless

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 hook version is 160psi and it is 40psi for hookless version. For hookless design, it makes the rim with better impact strength.

The hookless version is designed with low pressure impact resistance in mind. If you are planning to run a tire pressure above 40psi, the hooked version would be a better choice.

Brake system This is a required option.

Non Disc USD +30

Disc

Non-disc: available with hook design only
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: available with both hook and hookless design
The disc version does not have a rim brake track and features a unique disc specific layup process. Our new layup is over 25 grams lighter by reducing the unnecessary material and utilizing elements of our Flyweight construction method.

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.

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.


Pro Series: from date of purchase, 3 years warranty
Non-Pro Series: from date of purchase, 15 months warranty

Crash Replacement: from date of purchase, 30 months with 10%+ discount subject to rim model

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

Do you offer these rims with black graphics (the stealth color looks more grey)? Thanks Mike


LightBicycle 2018/08/01

Hi Mike, For your information, the Pantone color code for the stealth decal is Cool Gray 10 C. You can go to the Pantone website to see the exact color. Attaching with a rim with stealth decals on for your ref. Is this the color you are looking for? We also offer customized decal service for our customer. Let me know if you want a customized color.

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

Robert 2018/05/18

Hello, do you also plan a rim with 30mm outside and 21mm inside? The aerodynamic optimum is a rim that is 5 to 10 percent wider than the tire. A Continental 4000S II 25mm tire is 28.5mm wide on a rim with 21mm inside, so 30mm outside would be perfect. With 23mm inside, the tire will be even wider, so that would not match. Thanks!


LightBicycle 2018/05/18

Hi Robert, Most customers like to ride wider tires. So, our RR56C02 rim is 30mm wide and 56mm deep. If you like, we can send you the rim profile. Thanks, Lightbicycle


R

Robert 2018/05/19

Hello, maybe you could do the 30mm wide rim hookless with 23mm inside (for wider tires that will be no problem) and a hooked version with 21mm inside for people who want to run 25mm tires for best aerodynamics and crosswind stability. Thanks!


LightBicycle 2018/05/31

Hi Robert, The new 56mm rim is compatible with 25~50mm wide tires. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Omar 2018/05/15

I'm interested to a pair of RR36C02 model rims. What are the delivery times for Italy? How much does delivery cost?


LightBicycle 2018/05/16

Hi Omar, There are two delivery options for you to choose from. Quote as below for two rims to Italy. Let me know which delivery method works the best for you. If it's EMS, you can place your order online because EMS is the default delivery method. If it's TPD, pls provide the rim spec so I can create the invoice for you. EMS (Tax not included): Cost USD50, take 5~10 days to deliver. TPD (Tax-Prepaid Delivery): Cost USD89.1, take 2~4 weeks to deliver. Rims manufacturing takes around 12 days. We do not have this rim in stock currently. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, as you will offer a new rim with 23mm inside and 30mm outside and 56mm height, will there also be a lower 36mm high version for rim brakes (new rim brakes open wide enough)? Kind regards!


LightBicycle 2018/05/03

Hi George, Do you mean you are interested in 30mm wide/36mm deep deep rims with brake surface. Right? For wider road rims, we will release in 2 months. Thanks, Lightbicycle

George 2018/05/03

Hi, yes, I am looking for a ~36mm deep road rim with 30mm external and 23mm internal width for rim brakes. Then I am looking forward to your new rims. Do you also plan to use textured or machined brake tracks in the future, like Zipp, Enve oder Campagnolo? Thanks, George


LightBicycle 2018/05/04

Hi George, Yes, our new wide road rims with textured brake track will be ready in 2 months for sale. If you are not urgent to order wheels, you can wait for our new products. Is that okay? Thanks, Lightbicycle
