Use the filters to compare our rims to find your perfect match!


1. Choose your carbon MTB rims diameter to narrow down the product

2. De-select the riding styles that do not apply to you. For example, if you ride Cross Country and All Mountain, you can de-select Enduro, Freeride/Downhill and Plus. This will make it more clear which products you should be looking at.

3. Click on up to 3 part numbers to compare the mountain bike carbon rims.

4. Once you have at least one product selected, "Rims" or "Wheels" will populate below the part number and you can click on one of these to take you to the product page.


Impact - A measurement of the mtb bike rims ability to absorb large impacts. Higher numbers mean the rim can handle larger impacts.

Side Stiffness - Higher number means more side to side stiffness. Heavier and more aggressive riders often prefer stiffer rims.

Vertical Stiffness - Higher number means more vertical (up and down) stiffness. Stiffer rims are more predictable and pop out of corners faster. Rims with less stiffness follow the terrain and feel more traditional.

Weight - The lower number equals lower weight.

Hi Anupe, The closest 29er rim to your old wheels is AM/EN933. You can see the rim profile from the attachment. It is an asymmetric rim with 33mm inner/ 39mm outer width, 28mm depth, 2.6mm offset. Basing on your condition (aggressive descents, light trail, 115kgs), below is the wheelset that fits you. It's strong, stiff, and durable. Quotation 29er Wheelset is USD1098.2/pair with 5% discount for following specs. Let me know if you have any question. --Rims: EN933, 39mm wide, UD, matte, 28H, enduro version --Hubs: black DT SWISS 240s, front 15*110mm boost/rear 12*148mm boost, SRAM XD, straight pull, center lock --Spokes: black DT SWISS competition race, round, straight pull --Nipples: black brass Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, I'm seriously considering buying a set of your carbon wheels and I am considering this built: WM29C19 Front Axle:15 / 100mm Rear Axle:12 / 142mm Freehub Body:Shimano MTB 10/11S Brake System:6-bolt Front Holes:32H Rear Holes:32H Spoke Head:J-bend Hub Color:Black Hub Brand:DT SWISS Hub Model:240S Ratchet:54T Spoke:Sapim CX Ray Nipple:Aluminium Red Finish:glossy Weave:12K Decal:red Valve Stem:Add Valve StemTubeless Tape:Add Tubeless Tape I weigh 88kg and my riding consists of a mix of cross country but also trails (typically rather rocky terrain). No downhill or big jumps. However I am looking for a lighter set of wheels than what I currently have with a good balance between strength and comfort. Do you think the 29C19 is a good choice then. My tires are typically 2.35 or 2.40 wide. Also, since I live in Belgium, import taxes are typically very expensive (around 25% of the declared value). How can this be avoided or lowered? Thanks for your help.


LightBicycle 2018/05/29

Hi Fabian, 1. RM29C19 will be a good fit for your condition (not aggressive CX & Trial) 2. As for the import tax, what we usually do is to lower the declared value so you can pay less tax. We normally put USD220 for one wheelset. Will this be ok with you? We also have TPD delivery, it is tax prepaid. You will not have to pay tax or VAT through TPD. If you are interested, please let us know. The delivery cost by TPD is USD155 for one wheelset. Thanks, Lightbicycle

RM29C07 versus AM928 The AM is asymmetrical but costs a lot more. Why is there such a big cost difference?


LightBicycle 2018/03/20

Hi Jack, Asymmetrical rim profile, it provides better spoke tension balance between drive-side and non-drive side. It will make rims/wheels more durable, and it provides 2 years warranty service. So asymmetrical rims/wheels are with much higher price Are you looking for rims only or want to build a wheelset with them? Maybe I can help with that. If you like me to make some recommendation for you, pls kindly provide answers to below. 1. What kind of riding you do? 2. Are you an aggressive rider? 3. What is your weight? 4. The tire width you using? Thanks, Lightbicycle
