    OVERVIEW

RIM

Brake system This is a required option.

Non Disc USD +30

Disc

Non-disc: 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.

None

Add Valve Stem USD +7

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.

None

Add Tubeless Tape USD +6

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.

MTB carbon rim profile

Teleport to the wheelset building page.

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.


Pro Series: from date of purchase, 3 years warranty
Non-Pro Series: from date of purchase, 15 months warranty

Crash Replacement: from date of purchase, 30 months with 10%+ discount subject to rim model

Robert Clark : I LOVE these new wheels from Lightbicycle.com. Stepping up from my alloy rims, I am riding a full ten percent faster from day one. My bike accelerates way faster now also, and I am generally able to be much more aggressive on it (which is helpful because I commute through Beijing traffic to work ;-) ). These wheels are definitely worth the money, and I will buy from this company again when I am ready to get carbon wheels for my daughters once they are ready to start riding on road bikes. On top of a stellar product, Lightweightbicycle.com has stellar customer service to match. Lightweight Bicycle's responsiveness to customer concerns is hard to find in any industry.

Mihai 2018/09/17

Hi there, is it any time soon that you will build a u shaped rim with a depth of 35 to 50 mm, but much wider, around 24, 25 mm inner width? I recently rode a pair of Enve SES 4.5 AR DISC, owned by a crazy enough friend of mine, and they basically convinced me to have a pair of wider wheels. Cornering it's simply amazing, rolling just as. I'm interested in these two; RRU35C02 and RRU45C02, willing to build two pairs of this at your work shop, with dt swiss and pilar maybe, but they have to be that wide. So any chance for that to happen?


LightBicycle 2018/09/17

Hi Mihai. Since you are after a wider and deeper rim profile. Our new RR56C02 (23mm inner/30mm outer width, 56mm depth) might be the closest rim for you. We can build it with DT SWISS hubs, yes. Or you can check out the wheelset configurations at https://www.lightbicycle.com/700C-V-shape-46mm-depth-hand-built-carbon-road-disc-wheels---28mm-wide-and-tubeless-compatible.html We will discuss more details with you by mail. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Guys My local wheel builder recommended to you, have question, can you have spoke arrangement like campag rear 55mm 21spokes tubeless and 45 mm front 16 spokes straight Pull ,Dt hubs will it be strong enough Regards Peter


LightBicycle 2018/07/25

Hi Peter, For rear 21 spoke count RRU55C02 rim, is it 2:1 drilling? Do you like road rims only or complete wheelset? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, please, is 24 spoke enough for 90kg rider on rear wheel? Endurance and light gravel riding. Thanks


LightBicycle 2018/07/09

Hi Milan, If you are no riding aggressively, you can go with 24H. The max rider weight for RRU35C02 road clincher 700C rim is 135KG. We use over 300kg weight to do the test in our lab. You can choose Sapim CX-Ray to reinforce the wheels when you building the wheel. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Phil 2018/01/02

Hi, I'm looking to buy a set of 35mm rims and have a question about the decals. What comes as standard? I like the subtle square 'LB' logo over the valve stem but I'm not a fan of the huge graphic around the rim. Do you have a representative photo of what would be supplied if i ticked the option box for the logo? Thanks


LightBicycle 2018/01/02

Hello Phil, Thanks for your inquiry. RRU35C02 (clincher): 435+/-15g, $163/pcs We have newest road decal also. If you like the small logo on the value hole, that is fine. Pictures attached for your reference. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Larry 2017/11/22

I am looking at purchasing some rims to build up some road wheels and was curious if you rims need nipple washers and what is the max spoke tension? thank you Larry


LightBicycle 2017/11/23

Hi Larry, Our spoke hole is strong enough, so you don't need to add nipple washers. Normally, we do not make the spoke tension higher than 135kgf while building wheels. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Brian 2017/08/08

Is it possible to have spoke hole drilling for triplet spoke lacing? I plan to build 24/24 hole triplet wheelset. Every third hole would need to be drilled angled toward the non-driveside rear, and non-disc side front. The key spoke holes on either side of the valve would need to be angle drilled toward the drive side rear and disc side front. This would be the same lacing pattern of all Industry Nine road/cx wheelsets, for example. Thanks!


LightBicycle 2017/08/09

Hi Brian, For the triplet spoke lacing, is it 2:1 drilling? Are all spoke holes evenly spaced on the rim? If yes, we have two drilling as attached. Which do you prefer? Is it the method B? Are both front and rear rims with the same drilling pattern? Thanks, Lightbicycle

dams 2017/07/06

Hi, What is the maximum pressure for a 25 mm tubeless ready tire ?


LightBicycle 2017/07/07

Hi Dams, Thanks for your inquiry! For road RRU35C02 rims, it can fit 25mm tubeless tires and the maximum pressure is 160psi. However, while riding, normally, riders will make the tire pressure around 100~130psi. Please check our quotation as below. RRU35C02 rims: clincher, 25mm wide/35mm deep, UD matte? Front 20H/rear 24H? With brake surface(or not for disc)? With decals or not? USD163 each Thanks, Lightbicycle

I previous purchased the 45U wheelset with dt swiss 240. If I purchase the 35U rims can I use the existing spokes and nipple from my 45u?


Light-Bicycle 2016/10/24

Hello Mike, Thanks for your continued support. Both U35mm and U45mm rims ERD are different, so they cannot be shared the same spokes length. You have to get some new spokes for U35mm. Thanks, Light-bicycle
