Our widest Fatbike rims feature a massive 85mm width, fitting the largest tires on the market. The low profile 22mm height keeps the weight down to a minimum while still retaining excellent side stiffness.


A wide shelf with sloped bead seats aids tubeless tire setup and retention, and you can expect to shave 1.5 pounds off a similar alloy wheelset in rim weight alone.

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


T700: Constructed with premium Toray T700 carbon fiber. The best strength to weight ratio with no expense spared.


Tubeless: Tubeless (no tube) system performs perfectly at super low pressure. The rim mold is modified with better tubeless tyre setup , this design not only reinforces sidewall, also provides superior tire seal, especially for tubeless tires. Tubeless makes your fat bikes much lighter.


Double-wall: Double-wall construction makes fat bike rim with better stiffness and ride handling.


Ultra low profile: it makes fat rims light-weight and fast-rolling. The super-flat design provides better pinch flat protection.


Fast tire installtion: deeper tire bead channel provides easy tire mounting & dismounting for fat bike wheels.


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.


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.


Bead lock: The small ridges on either side of the drop channel help secure tubeless tires in place. The bead lock makes it easier to seal up tubeless tires with a floor pump, and they are incredibly hard to burp.


For Non-Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 15 Months Warranty
For Pro Series Rims: From the date of purchase, 3 Years Warranty. Light Bicycle is pleased to offer the options to purchase an extended 5-year Premium warranty or lifetime Premium warranty with minimum charge respectively.

Crash Replacement: It is applicable with the same period as to warranty time range that you purchased for the rim in terms of 15-month/ 3-year/ 5-year/ Lifetime, with 10%+ discount subject to rim model.

What are the weights of the different wheelset options. I'm looking for a 150*15 front axle and 197*12 rear with Shimano drive and Alloy nipples. I'm undecided on hub or spoke option until the weights are posted. Thank you.


LightBicycle 2016/11/23

Hello Jared, The weight will be different with different hubs. Which hubs and spokes do you like? Then we can get the wheelset weight accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

@Mervin. Have you ordered already? I'm new to fatbikes and researching on building my first... just have the frame and fork. :-) Did you end up ordering? Would be helpful to compare notes...

Hi, what is the price for a rim only (not made up into a wheel) for: - 90mm width - 32H offset - UD weave - delivered to UK? And what is the price if I ordered two rims instead of one? Thanks - JR

Hello John, Thanks for your inquiry. RSNOW02 (90mm width fat bike rim): 650 /-30g, $263/pcs Rims in UD, 32H and offset are fine. Is that UD matte? Shipping with EMS for one rim is $50, and it is $64 for two rims. All pricing in USD. You can save much shipping cost if order two rims. Thanks, Lightbicycle

David 2016/01/23

If you plan to make a 650b (27.5") fat bike rim I'd suggest making it 100 mm wide rather than 80 mm. Wider seems to be the trend. Note the HED B.F.D 26x100 mm rims. I have a Trek Farley 9.8 w/ 27.5x80 rims. I'd be very interested in going 100 mm wide to give the tire more volume. Please email me if a 650b x 100 mm becomes available.


Light-Bicycle 2016/01/25

Hello David, Thank you so much for your suggestion. We will discuss with our engineers, and will let you know once we have a plan to manufacture the 650B 100mm width fat bike rim. It would be best to keep in touch with us by signing up for our newsletter for the announcement. The newsletter sign up is located at the bottom left of our website. Thanks, Lightbicycle

andrew 2015/08/20

hi. Does the Nipple need special washers to install in the rim? Or is it ok to directly put Nipple inside the rim?


Light-Bicycle 2015/08/21

Hello Andrew, Thanks for your inquiry. And all our wheelsets are built without washers. The spoke hole strength is ok for without washers, and you can pi the nipple inside the rim directly. RSNOW02 (90mm wide 26er fat bike rim): 650 /-15g, USD268/pcs Please find attached rim profile. Rim weave in 3k matte & UD matte are more popular. Do you like it? For drilling, do you like centered drilling, offset drilling or dual spoke hole pattern? Please find attached profiles. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Are you guys making any 27.5" x 80mm carbon rims in the future?


Light-Bicycle 2015/06/26

Hello Bob, Thanks for your inquiry. Currently, we only have 50mm wide 650B rims. We will discuss with our engineers and will let you know once we have a plan to make the 80mm wide 650B rims. Is that popular now? Thanks, Light-bicycle


B

Bob 2015/10/13

Yes, Trek is making their 2 high end fat bikes (Farley 9.8 & 9.6) with 27.5' x 80mm rims.


Light-Bicycle 2015/10/14

Hello Bob, Thanks for your contact. Are you interested 27.5inch with 80mm width? Or 26er? Single-wall or double-wall? If yes, do you have the rim profile? Currently, we also have some plans to open new fat bike rim mold. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks, Light-bicycle


J

Jeff 2016/01/11

Where did you guys end up with this? I'd love a set of 80mm 27.5 rims.


Light-Bicycle 2016/01/12

Hello Jeff, Thanks for your inquiry. Currently, only the 50m wide 650B plus rim is available. We will discuss with our engineers and will let you know once we have a plan to make the 80mm wide 650B rims. If you need rims urgently, we’d like to recommend the 650 plus rim which is lighter and more nimble than a fat bike. Also, it is more capable in sand or snow, and perfectly suited to 2.8-3.3" tires. Please find attached rim profile. RM650BC14 (50mm width plus): 450 /-15g, USD200/pcs Thanks, Lightbicycle
