Disc: The disc hub has optional 6-bolt or center lock version.The matched disc rim does not have a 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.

Non Disc(Rim brake): By default, the rim brake 700C road rims come with an advanced High TG surface whose braking power and reliability is significantly improved over a basalt braking surface.

Our newest Grooved Graphene Surface is ready now. The price is $30 added for each rim. If you would like to update with newest brake tracks, please contact us at sales@lightbicycle.com.

54T - Super fast engagement, but shallow teeth require more careful re-greasing and the thru-axle should be checked every ride.

EXP - With only a singlel spring, making the hubs faster and lighter, more complete engagement of the ratchet teeth for more precise contact, and therefore a longer lifespan.

Sapim Race – Our strongest and stiffest spoke. These spokes are suitable for heavy or extremely aggressive riders who need a stiffer wheel.
Sapim CX-Ray – The lightest spoke in our lineup is still quite strong due to the elasticity and amazing fatigue life.

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 valves 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 valve core is removable so you can add sealant without 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.

Teleport to the rim page.

Weighing in at only 405 grams, the R25 is built to fly up the climbs like never before. Our lightest road option will have you chasing KOMs and personal bests every time the road begins to tilt upwards.


The New Gen Aero shaped 25mm deep profile is easy to control in crosswinds and comfortable on long rides. The 17.9mm inner width is a great match for a 23mm road tire, a 33mm Cyclocross tire, and everything in between.

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. At this stage, with this newest brake track, you could order road Non-disc rims only directly online, however, please contact us at sales@lightbicle.com if you want to order a complete wheelset with that.


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.

Lionel 2019/10/13

Hello, I get one pair of these rims but I don't understand what is the "sense" of the "brake wave" to build the wheels? Can you please give me some informations because I don't want to build the wheel in the wrong "brake wave" direction. Thanks in advance Lionel


LightBicycle 2019/10/14

Hi Lionel, The rim brake track weave should follow the wheel rotating direction as the following sketch shows. Please install the wheel in the right direction and the wheel will good to go. We just emailed you a picture to show the direction. Thanks, Lightbicycle

LightBicycle 2019/10/09

Hi Greg, 1) Sorry that we do not have silver spokes, only black sapim cx-ray bladed spokes are available here. 2)And for the polished hubs, do you mean glossy black or matte black for this 700C clincher wheelset? Thanks, Lightbicycle

LightBicycle 2019/05/02

Hi Dave, Do you like to order RRU25T02 tubular 700C rims + sapim cx-ray bladed spokes? You will build wheelset by yourself. Is that right? Or do you like complete wheelset? For complete wheelset, we donot rotor hubs that you sent. But we have DT Swiss 240S and 350 straight pull non disc hubs. Is it okay for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

What’s is the lightest tubular wheelset you make. Rider weight 55kg.


LightBicycle 2018/12/10

Hi Richard, The weight of road tubular wheelset affects by many factors. What kind of hubs the wheelset use, the rider's riding style, rider's weight, etc. However, we can certainly make a lightweight wheelset that best suit your needs. So, would you kindly provide more infomation about your ridiing so I can know what specs are the best fit for you? 1. Are u looking for disc wheels or rim brake wheels? 2. Any specific hub brand or model that you have in mind? We offer two super light hubs, Extralite and Carbon Ti. But compare to other hubs, they are more expensive. Will this be ok with you? 3. What kind of riding you usually do? Thanks, Lightbicycle
