The new 28mm width road wide bicycle rim has a deep profile for improved aerodynamic, offering greater stability with wider tyres. Wider rims and tyres will give you better speed, comfort and more secure in corners. They are ideal for disc brake equipped road bikes, cyclocross bike wheels and gravel cycling. It is available for both rim brake version and road disc version, hook and hookless design.

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.

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.
beadlock design making this light weight road rims better tubeless setup and better sealing.
Improved aerodynamic design for a better crosswind protection.
Idea for wider tyres, disc brake equipped road bikes, road races, gravel races and cyclocross.
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.
Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.

Todd :

What is the internal width of the hookless rims?

2017-06-22

LightBicycle :

Hi Todd, Thanks for your inquiry! The internal width of RR46C02 hookless rim is 22.5mm. Please find attached rims tech drawing for your reference. The max tire pressure for hookless version is 80 psi and it is 160psi for hook version. If you are planning to run a tire pressure above 80psi, you have to go to hook version. How much tire pressure will you ride? Then we can check whether hookless is okay for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, Could you do 50mm rear and 46mm front, with dt350 or dt240 hubs? And do prices include postage? Thank you

2017-05-16

LightBicycle :

Hello Mark, Thanks for your inquiry. For 50mm depth rim, it is V-shape with 23mm width. For 46mm depth rim, it is V-shape with 28mm width. Recently, most of our customers choose the new 28mm wide 46mm depth rim or 25mm wide U shape rim. They are much wider and stronger. We can build the wheelset with different rims depth for front and rear. May I know what this wheelset used for? For normal road bike or disc bike? Also, what the tire width you use normally? What is your weight? Then we will do some recommendations and quote accordingly. Our wheelset price isn’t including postage. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Jon :

If I want to run tubeless road tires, do I get hook or hookless?

2017-05-15

LightBicycle :

Hi Jon, Both hook and hookless designs are tubeless compatible. For tubeless, you can use the tubeless rim tape, sealant and tubeless tire. Then the rims can ride tubeless perfectly. May I know what the tire pressure you run normally? 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. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Steven :

I am 72kh weight. How many spoke count do you recommend? I was thinking 24h but is it better to go 28h?

2017-05-10

LightBicycle :

Hello Steven, Thanks for your inquiry. Normally, more spokes give the rim greater strength and rigidity. You are not a large rider, so the 24H rim is suitable for you also. The rims are for disc bike, right? If so, both versions work for you. For hookless design, it makes the rim with better impact strength. However, if you are planning to run a tire pressure above 80psi, the hooked version would be a better choice. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Pete :

Hi, on the same subject: would you recommend 28H rims for a 90 kg rider rather than 24H? I need disc brake rims. Thanks!

2017-05-12

LightBicycle :

Hello Pete, Thanks for your inquiry. According to your info, we’d like to recommend the 28H rim. It is much stronger, and more spokes give the rim greater strength and rigidity. No brake tracks for disc brake, right? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Ermanno :

What is the ideal nipple lenght for these rims? Would 12 mm be ok?

2017-04-07

Christian :

can you build these up with DT SWISS 240 hubs?

2017-03-27

LightBicycle :

Hello Christian, Thanks for your inquiry. Do you like 46mm disc wheels? If so, we can build it with 24H/24H DT 240S J-bend center lock disc hubs. The 46mm hookless wheelset price as required (with DT 240S disc hubs and Sapim cx-ray spokes) is $994/pair. If you like non-disc wheels, only 46mm hook version and 20H/24H DT 240S hubs are available. The wheelset price is $960/pair. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Ben :

Can you please confirm the maximum recommended spoke tension applicable to this rim design.

2017-02-21

LightBicycle :

ello Ben, Thanks for your inquiry. The max spoke tension for 46mm rim is 180kgf. During building, please bring the spokes to an even tension, with a maximum tolerance 5% for all drive side and all non-drive side. During and after building, have the wheel stress relieved properly. Normally, it is better to use less than 135kfg while building wheels. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Daniel :

What is the minimum recommended tire width for the hooked version?

2017-02-15

LightBicycle :

Hello Daniel, I double checked with the engineers, and the recommend tires are 23mm-40mm. It will be better if you go with 25C. I think it will be more compatible. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello Shane, Thanks for your contact. Are you interested in road disc rim? The 46mm depth rim is our new design and suitable for disc brake equipped road bikes, cyclocross bike wheels and gravel cycling. It is much wider and stronger. Would you like to have a try? Thanks, Lightbicycle
