  • Manufacturing process
    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. Read More about our process here
  • Wider
    The wide profile offers improved aerodynamics, better handling in crosswinds condition and faster riding.
  • U-shape
    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
  • Hand-Built
    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.
  • Precise layup
    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.
  • Tubeless ready
    beadlock design making this light weight road rims better tubeless setup and better sealing.
  • Angled Holes
    Angled spoke holes allows the nipple to pull straight in line with the spoke for reduced stress. This results in fewer broken spokes and nipples.
  • T700
    Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.

Patrick Javier : Here is the complete bike with my new Light Bicycle U-Rim "4.5" UST wheelset (45mm front/55mm rear). I'm using Maxxis Padrone TR 25mm tubeless road tires, they went on very easy without any tools! I spent an entire evening installing tubeless tyres on my Shamal wheelset, in conparison this was a breeze. The ride was very comfortable, but wheels still ultra responsive. It was quick on flats, spun up quickly, and light enough for hills. No flex or rub at all under power in hills or sprints. These are very nice all around wheels, the fit and finish is excellent.

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
LightBicycle : (2017-06-28)
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

Hi Kurt, Thank you for your continuous support! We have DT 350S road disc hubs with front 12*100mm/rear 12*142mm. What spoke count do you like? 24H or 28H? What spokes do you prefer for wheelset? Then we can quote accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

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
LightBicycle : (2017-03-29)
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

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.

Hello Paul, Thanks for your support. Happy to hear that you like our rims. We are continually working to improve our products, and look forward to serving you again in the future. It will be nice if you can share us some pictures of your complete bike. Then we can share your bike pictures on our facebook or instagram page. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, Do you also have Bitex RAF12(20) and RAR12(24) hubs? How much more would this cost extra?
Light-Bicycle : (2016-08-19)
Hello Bran, Thanks for your inquiry. Currently, only Bitex RAF10/ RAR9 are available. I will double check if the Bitex RAF12/RAR12 are available and get back to you asap. Thanks, Light-bicycle
nick : (2016-12-18)
i would also be interested if you can get the RAF/R12 hubs from Bitex
LightBicycle : (2016-12-20)
Hello Nick, Thanks for your inquiry. Currently, only Bitex RAF10/ RAR9 hubs are available, not RAF12/RAR12. Sorry about that. The U45mm wheelset built with Bitex RAF10/ RAR9 and Pillar x-tra 1420 aero spokes is $560/pair. Or we have better spokes Sapim cx-ray, and the price is $44 added. All pricing in USD.
