    OVERVIEW

RIM

Brake system This is a required option.

Non Disc USD +30

Disc

Non-disc: 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.

Hole This is a required option.

Weave This is a required option.

12K

3K

UD

The layup schedule is predetermined for each model, but you can choose the outer layer.
3k/12k/UD are the 3 choices for cosmetic appearance.The rim strength & weight is virtually identical.
UD Matte is the most popular and has a subtle look.
3k weave has a more traditional carbon fiber look.

Decal This is a required option.

No

stealth

blue

green

magenta

orange

red

white

yellow

Road rims use super light waterslide decals (glossy black). The decal is very thin and applied under a clearcoat so they are non-removeable.

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.

Brake Pads This is a required option.

None

Add Brake Pads USD +10

4 pads will be included. These high performance brake pads are designed for carbon bike rims only and offer excellent stopping power even in the wet.

Our widest road rim yet, the new 30mm external and 23mm internal width 56mm road disc rim provides the perfect platform for anything from a 28C to 50C road, gravel, or cyclocross tire and makes tubeless set up a breeze. Available in both disc and rim brake specific models, this incredibly stiff and aerodynamic 56mm road rim is just as at home on your road race bike as it is on your gravel rig. Whether you're sprinting for primes or tackling a 200 mile gravel epic, the versatile RR56C02 is up for the challenge.

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

Hi there, I am excited to see the dimensions on these new rims, they are some of the very few rim brake rims available that will maintain a proper aero profile with a 28mm tire. I am also very excited to see the reference to the "Grooved brake track", as I have been hoping and waiting that LB would introduce a textured track to improve wet braking, as so far only the "Big (overpriced) Brands" have offered that feature. My question is, do you have any more information and photos of these new brake tracks? The pics above only seem to show the disc brake version of the rim, and I am curious to see what the new braking surfaces look like. Also, can you provide any more info on how you are using graphene? Is it graphene powder added to the liquid resin, or do you have carbon plies that have graphene integrated into them? Is the graphene only used in the brake track, or the whole rim? Since heat related failures have historically been a problem with carbon clinchers it would nice to know more about the improvements you've made and if they have finally put that industry wide problem behind us.


LightBicycle 2018/11/10

Hi Kai, We sent pictures for rims brake with texture to your email address. For graphene material, it is added into the resin and used on the whole rim. Please let us know if there is any other questions. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Would the RR56CO2 be suitable for a tandem? Rider weights total about 300 lbs, plus say 35 for the bike and water, etc. We were thinking 36 hole. Eyelets needed? Thanks


LightBicycle 2018/11/03

Hi Evan, Yes, our this road disc rims will work on a tandem bike. We would add more carbon fiber to the rims to reinforce the wheels. But it would require USD20 for each rim, will it be ok with you? What will be the tire width you using? Our recommended tire width for RR56C02 is 28~50c. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I really like the depth and weight of these rims, and I fully intend to get a set for my gravel bike. However, for my road bike, I think they'll cause 28mm tires to become too large for my frame so I wanted to ask if you could do these rims with a slightly narrower internal width? Like the 46mm/36mm versions that have the 21mm internal width?


LightBicycle 2018/10/08

Hi Adrian, For RR56C02 gravel rim, we recommend to use 28C~50C tire size. We do not recommend to use 25C. But some customers do use 25C on these rims/wheels. They do not complaint the tire match problem. We think it should be okay for them to use 25C tires. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Adrian 2018/10/08

Thanks for the response. What is the cheapest total cost, including shipping and tax, to the UK for a pair of these rims? I’m a repeat customer (I now 4 sets of your rims at the moment) and you’ve previously been able to offer a loyalty discount. Is there any way to keep the tax and paypal fees etc. to a minimum? Thanks Adrian


LightBicycle 2018/10/09

Hi Adrian, Our quotes are included the PayPal fee now. We will certainly offer a discount for a repeat customer like you. Appreciated for your loyalty. We just sent you this road disc rim/gravel rim cost to your email address. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Adrian 2018/09/28

Hi, would you consider making this rim in a width that was suitable for 25mm tires? I intend to run them on a frame that has tight tire clearance and given the 23mm internal rim-width i think 28mm tires would balloon up too much. Also, the current 23mm internal width means it wouldn’t be safe to run 25mm tires on these rims. Ideally I’d like this exact rim but with an internal rim-width that was as wide as possible while still being compatible with 25mm tires.


LightBicycle 2018/10/07

Hi Adrian, Sorry for the late reply, we just got back from our national vacation. I will highly recommend our RRU55C02 (25mm wide, 55mm deep). We have improved our disc road rims technology so the disc version could be 20~30g lighter than the old ones. The result of the tech revolution is that RRU55C02 is reaching 490g+/-15 each rim. Still be heavier than RR56C02 you are looking at. Also, the U-shape would be more aero and a better fit for your frame. As for the narrow internal width version for RR56C02, I don't think we would launch anything like that anytime soon. For RR56C02, it is okay to use 28mm tires. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Peter 2018/09/23

Hello, Is this v-profile good in sidewinds? And do you think the deeper model will be before available before end of 2018? Also you FAQ #18 says that you ship from europe so does that mean there is no customs fee (shipping to the Netherlands) above what I see at checkout? Thanks


LightBicycle 2018/09/25

Hi, Peter 1. Usually, we would recommend shallower U-shape rims for sidewind riding. So if you are riding somewhere often windy, especially sidewind. you can check out the RG922 (29mm wide, 28mm deep) RG922: https://www.lightbicycle.com/29er-disc-bike-rims-29mm-wide-28mm-deep-clincher-for-cyclocross-and-gravel-bikes.html If thinner rims also work for you, you should probably consider rims like our RRU25C02 (25mm wide, 25mm deep, U-shape) or RRU35C02 ( (25mm wide, 35mm deep, U-shape). You can learn more details from the links below: RRU25C02: https://www.lightbicycle.com/Carbon-700C-25mm-wide-road-rim-clincher-25mm-deep-U-shape-tubeless-compatible-with-basalt-braking-surface.html RRU35C02: https://www.lightbicycle.com/carbon-700C-25mm-wide-road-rim-clincher-35mm-deep-U-shape-tubeless-compatible-basalt-braking-surface.html 2. We only have few MTB rims stocked in European warehouse, so the RR56C02 is currently not available. If you are worried about the import tax, we do offer a TPD (Tax-Prepaid Delivery) method for shipping. We will discuss more by mail, please check your inbox for our reply e-mail. Note that our quotes only valid for one month. Please contact us to check if the quote still valid or for updated quotes. Thanks Lightbicycle

Is this rim not available at the North American warehouse?


LightBicycle 2018/09/18

Hi, Yes, as you can see, the RR56C02 (30mm wide carbon gravel rim) is currently not available at the North American warehouse online. So you can't find the tab for the North American warehouse. As well as all other carbon rims/wheels in our site. As long as you see the North American tab, it means that you can order it and will be shipped from Canada or USA warehouse. If you are looking for building a complete wheelset, you should also know that we offer different hubs for China warehouse and the NA warehouse. If you want to build with DT Swiss 240S, DT SWISS 350, Hope, Novatec, etc. You should buy from China warehouse. On the other hand, if you like to build your wheelset with Onyx hubs or Industry hubs for the wheelset. You should buy from the North American warehouse. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions. Thanks Lightbicycle

Robn 2018/09/06

Can RR56C02 rim be made hookless?


LightBicycle 2018/09/07

Hi Robn, RR56C02 was designed for gravel use. So the profile is hooked to hold up the higher pressure (over 40psi). Hookless profile rim's recommendation tire pressure is 40psi. Could you tell me more about your riding? what type of riding you do? What is the tire width and tire pressure you will use? I would love to provide some recommendations for you if you like. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hey ! I will buy 2 rims soon Just wanted to know how much weight does the stealth decals add per rim ? I think they look great and make the rims look less '' generic '' But weightweenies inside of me needs to know ;) thanks


LightBicycle 2018/07/31

Hi Sir, The steal decal is really light. It is around 5g only for each rim. We can make sure the rim weight is 460g+/-15 for you. The rims without decal are actually the same weight as rims with decal. Thanks, Lightbicycle
