Valve Stem This is a required option.

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.

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.

Whether you’re chasing KOMs, racing criteriums, or preparing for your first Gran Fondo, the U35’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.

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.


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.

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

Are the dt 240 hubs that you use convertible between QR and thru axle?


Light-Bicycle 2016/09/27

Hello Scott, Thanks for your inquiry. For DT 240S hubs, do you like road or MTB? Because only DT 240S mtb hubs are available to be converted between QR and thru axle, but you have to buy the convert kit separately. Thanks, Light-bicycle
