Whether you’re chasing KOMs, racing criteriums, or preparing for your first Gran Fondo, the R35’s are ready to take you to the next level. The deep profile is easy to handle in crosswinds, and comfortable to ride on rougher roads or rolling terrain.

Coming in at only 435g per rim, the U35 is designed to help you soar up the climbs while still given you that aerodynamic edge when the road becomes flat. The 17.9mm internal width works with anything from a 23mm to 33mm road or Cyclocross tire.

Mohsin: R35 rim brake wheels with Novatec hubs. I've been on these wheels since May and they are still in great shape after nearly 8,000km. Added to this, they weigh very little, which makes them a perfect fit for a light build. I just ordered the R45 wheels with DT350 hubs and I'll upload some pictures once they arrive. Ride safe and happy new year to you all.

David: As a long time fan of Light Bicycle wheels, I've purchased a few sets, however the ones on this 1980's Colnago Super (masquerading as a Master) are the lightest. With R35 rims, in gloss UD, laced to Carbon Ti hubs, via Sapim CX Ray spokes and alloy nipples, this wheelset came in just under 1,320g, without resorting to flyweight rims. I chose the R35s due to tight frame tyre clearances and because the shallow rim depth, visually suits the narrow steel frame tubes; whilst keeping the overall weight down to 7.9kg (without pedals or cages).

Emacdo: Bought a set of 35MM and 45MM rim brake rims and built them up over the winter with a pair of Campy Electron hubs (completely rebuilt). The 35/45 configuration is a great all-rounder setup - climber in the front, aero in the back. They were fantastically easy to lace up due to their very tight construction tolerances. Finally have been able to take them on a couple of shorter rides in the last couple weeks (now that Spring is here where I live) and they were fabulous. Rode 90+ miles today on chip seal and washboard roads and the rims handled really well. These are now my favorite wheels. I can't say as much about the Conti 5k tires, but that has nothing to do with the rims (switching to a set of Vittoria Corsas after today's ride). The roads around here are passable at best, so I have done my best to beat these rims around and they have responded perfectly. I can't wait to put many more miles on them.

Murph: I’m loving my new wheels, I just finished refreshing my Moots with a new Enve seat post, stem, fork, Easton EC90 Aero bars and wanted to share an updated picture of my bike. This bike has 30,000 miles on it.

Aladino 2021/08/21

Good evening. I'm very interested to buy a wheelset of R35 Road/CX . However there is two (2) things that I would like to get on them. 1. Red Novatec hubs. I already have several wheelsets with this hub color. 2. A rear wheel with 50mm deep if is possible, obviously with 35mm in the front. I can take care of the other features options during the buying process. Can you make this possible? Please, give me any instructions to be follow to make this process have a happy ending. Thank you very much for your help.


LightBicycle 2021/08/21

Hi Aladino, It is okay to get Novatec red hubs here. Do you like R35 disc or rim brake wheelset? We have R35 front /rear R45 or rear R55. Which do you prefer? You can list the order specs and your delivery address in the email, then we can work on invoice accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Cosimo 2021/01/19

Hi, I have a Shimano 105 2x10s road bike...I only need a thickness to make wheels compatible right? And there is a shipping method to not pay custom tax? Thank you.


LightBicycle 2021/01/20

Hi Cosimo, Are you also using the Shimano 105 caliper on your bike 700C rim brake? If so, the compatible rim width range is 20.8-28mm. The R35 (17.9mm internal, 25mm outer width, 35mm depth). would be ok to mount on your bike. What would be the shipping address of your order? We do have tax-prepaid delivery available for EU countries and the UK. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello Lightbicycle - Team, i am a heavy biker - 120 kg - and I am looking for a RIM Carbon wheelset. I would like Hubs from White Industries T11 (in red) as Campagnolo. And maybe Sapim RX spokes. 38-45mm depth and 23-25mm are okay. If you ship to Germany do you offer pre paid tax duty ? Thank you for your quote. Cheers, Charles


LightBicycle 2019/08/31

Hi Charles, We can make a reinforced version rim for you since you are a heavy rider. I will get back to you when I have the estimated weight of the reinforced version rim, note that there will be USD8 added to each rim for additional carbon fiber. For non disc wheelset hubs White Industries hubs T11, we only have front 20H/rear 24H in stock here. If you like front 24H/rear 28H hubs, is it Hope RS4 or Novatec hubs okay for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

George 2019/05/05

Are the WRU35C02 wheelsets (or any of the other 25mm width wheelsets) only available from the Global site? Also can this wheelset only be made with the Bitex hub if I want a Campagnolo freehub?


LightBicycle 2019/05/06

Hi George, 1. Our North America warehouse only stock some popular models and configurated product. Mostly MTB rims/wheels. 2. We do have DT SWISS hubs (350/240s) came with the Campagnolo freehub, will this ok with you? The reason why the option is not available online is that we only make the most popular options available so most people don't have to face too many options. The fact is that the Light Bicycle offers a lot of hub options, Bitex, Novatec, DT SWISS, I9, Onyx, Hope, Tune, Carbon Ti, Extralite, White Industries, etc. Which hubs do you prefer for your road wheelset 700C? We can quote accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'm in the US. Are you able to build a road rim brake clincher wheel set using the RRU55c02-25mm rims, DT 240 front hub, and a power tap G3 rear hub. I would be interested in J-bend CXray spokes and red nipples, no graphics, UD matte finish, brake pads, no valve stem and no rim strips. thanks, mike


LightBicycle 2019/04/15

Hi Michael, yes, we can get power tap G3 hub from our North American warehouse. I have our US team to reach you and make a quotation of RRU35C02 road brake clincher wheelset for your check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, for all your non-disc U-shape clincher wheelset e.g WRU35C02 do they have the High TG Resin with Graphene brake track as standard?


LightBicycle 2019/03/20

simon 2017/01/12

hi guys, Just enquiring: is the braking surface on the U Shaped rim a high temp resin or a basalt surface of similar rims? I have had previous rims -(others) and they squeal and pulse under braking. Can you cost up a U rim in 35 front, and 50 rear Shimano on Novatec A/F rear, Pillar suitable for 85kg - 28 spoke set up..? thanks Simon


LightBicycle 2017/01/13

Hello Simon, Thanks for your inquiry. Our U-shape rim is with special material and New high TG resin, it will provide better braking surface performance than basalt braking surface. For 50mm depth rim, it is V-shape. We suggest you to try our U-shaped 45mm or 55mm wheels. Please find our quotations as below. All pricing in USD. -U35 front/ U45 rear wheelset (with Novatec A291/F482 SL version 28H hubs): $558/pair -U35 front/ U55 rear wheelset (with Novatec A291/F482 SL version 28H hubs): $566/pair If you would like to place an order, please confirm the full order details (weave, finish, hole count, decal requirements), then I can create the purchasing link for you.

Tommy 2016/10/24

LB, I configure this bike with Bitex hub and total weight is somehow lighter than using DT240s, is that correct? Total weight with Bitex is Weight: 1352.14g /-25. While with DT240s, weight is 1414g. Do you mind posting a screenshot of the actual weight on the scale of both front and back wheel, please? Tommy


Light-Bicycle 2016/10/25

Hello Tommy, Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, Bitex are the lightest hubs we have here. It is much lighter than DT 240S non disc hubs. -Bitex RAF10/ RAR9: 259g/pair -DT 240S J-bend non disc hubs: 320g/pair We can take pictures of the wheelset weight before shipping. Does it work for you? Thanks, Light-bicycle

Tommy 2016/10/25

But are you confident of the listed weight ie. that the final weight won't be far from there? Sorry, I climb mountains a lot so weight is very important for me. Cheers, Tommy


Light-Bicycle 2016/10/26

Hello Tommy, It will be great if you reply us by email directly And once you are ready to order, we will create the purchase link based on the record we discussed. Thank you. Yes, we are sure that the final weight is with a tolerance /-25g, so it won’t be far from there. Any question please feel free to contact us. Thanks, Light-bicycle
