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.

The wide profile offers improved aerodynamics, better handling in crosswinds condition and faster riding.
The aerodynamic shape makes road tubeless rims lightweight but still stiff, keeping them stable in cross winds. The advantages of the U-shaped Road bike rim 700C
Each wheelset is painstakingly built by hand to tension within 5% variance. Each spoke's tension rating is recorded in our system, as is the roundness and lateral tolerance.
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.

Mark :

Hello, with dt240s hubs and the 45mm deep rims, what weight ride do you recommend? I'm 70-75kg.also ,how low would they take to make and send to Japan? How long is guarantee? Do you give free spokes too? And 可以打折扣吗? $990! Thanks a lot

Hello Mark, Thanks for your inquiry. Please find attached rims profile of U45mm and U55mm. According to your info, you are not a large rider, so the U45mm wheels are strong enough for your riding. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I am a returning customer and looking for road bike wheels for disc brakes, centerlock. I need 12mm thru axle. It seems like the only option are the dt swiss 240 hubs. They are too expensive. Is it possible to get cheeper alternatives? Regards Kurt

Adam :

Hi, I'm looking at the 45mm U wheelset with 12mm thru axle on both front and rear wheels. The only option available is the DT Swiss 240S. The Novatech D771SB hubs are only available from you with a 15mm thru axle, but can be purchased by themselves with a 12mm endcap. Is it possible to get a wheelset with the 12mm Novatec hubs? If not is it possible to convert them afterwards? Thanks, Adam

2017-03-29

LightBicycle :

Hi Adam, Due to time difference, sorry for missing your call online. For hubs, do you like front 12*100mm thru axle/ rear 12*142mm thru axle? Please confirm the hubs axle size then we will check with hub agent accordingly. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Paul :

I have had my 45s for two years and I can't recommend these rims, and LB's builds more strongly. I literally have hhad to touch one spoke in two years, and I'm a big heavy dude. Was tough at first finding pads that didn't screech but I finally tried Token pads and they work great. Very stable rim even in crosswinds. Couldn't be happier.

LightBicycle :
