Introducing Falcon Pro AR375 & AR465
FIND YOUR FLOW.
What is the future of road wheels? Reduced drag, better handling, quicker acceleration
and greater impact resistance. We took a bold new direction to bring a new level of
performance to the road market. Introducing Light Bicycle’s X-Flow profile, available in
two models: AR375 and AR465.
Sounds too good to be true? We have many years of in-house test data to compare against,
and we’ve sent our profiles out to third-party test facilities to confirm our design
intentions ring true. Rider feedback shows that these laterally stiff rims feel smooth
yet responsive, and are FAST! Read on to find out if the new X-Flow rims are right for
* S = Standard, F = Flyweight
1. X-Flow Aero Profile
The key to excellent aero performance gains found in the AR375 and AR465 rims
lies in the X-Flow profile. We sent several R and AR counterparts along with the
newly designed X-Flow rims for comparison, to a third-party testing institute
using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Removing crosswinds from the equation
for a fair rim comparison, based on the samples tested, the X-Flow rims perform
the best: 37.33% lower aero drag compared to R-rims, and 26.57% less compared to
AR-rims, at a speed of 60km/h.
Fluid Velocity (No Crosswinds)
Pressure Field (No Crosswinds)
* Test data source: Aerodynamics and Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Institute,
Northwestern Polytechnical University, China.
2. Lateral Stiffness
Lateral stiffness in a rim speaks to the level of
movement from side to side.
Laterally stiff rims feel more responsive during powerful accelerations like
sprinting; a direct power transfer. Also, steering and handling feel sharper.
Under the max load of 50kgf, the AR465 deforms 9.53mm, with an increase of 20%
in lateral stiffness compared to a same-wide AR rim (12.05mm deformation).
* Test data source: Light Bicycle Test Lab.
3. Impact Resistance
Our impact resistance test shows that the AR465
achieves a 30% increase in impact resistance,
compared to an AR counterpart. The ultra impact force the X-Flow test
sample can take is 139.258J.
You can order the AR375 and AR465 rims/wheelsets from the Global warehouse. We have a
production run for the North American Warehouse going online in the coming months.

have any questions or suggestions.
Do you have any aerodynamic test results to share comparing the x-flow to you other rims with crosswinds (i.e. various yaw angles)?
We actually receive some good feedbacks from social media and forums on the X-flow deisng performance in crosswinds. What riding conditions looks like on your side? Please tell me more about your riding and reqreuiments so I can recommend the best-fit 700C road rims/wheels for you.

Do you have any impact test data or estimates for the flyweight versions?
Which model of flyweight version impact test data do you like to check? AR375 disc or AR465 road disc?
How does the new AR375 / AR465 with x-flow compare to the AR35 / AR45 in terms of cross wind stability? At what yaw angles is it faster? And what tire widths were used during testing? I really would love more technical information about the aerodynamics to make a decision between those rims.
For crosswind, the rim/wheel 700C depth is more important. Normally, you will have to choose shallow rims/wheels if there is lots of crosswind there. For X-FLOW, actually, the lateral stiffness is much better than all other models, so they provide better bike control in cross-wind area. For some other models/flyweight version, one customer mentioned not stiff enough at lateral. So, X-FLOW is helping on lateral stiffness, and improve bikecontrolling obviously in cross-wind.
I need a very good Wheelset with very good hubs.
Thanks for your inquiry!
Do you like road disc or rim brake wheelset 700C? And what is your weight and tire width? Then i can recommend accordingly for you.
