You can only rely on yourself and your equipment.

Imagine this: it’s late afternoon mid-January in the Arctic. It’s dark and the temperature drops to -20°C. You are on a groomed winter trail 15km away from the nearest shelter, riding your fatbike back to the cabin. There are two things you can rely on - yourself and your equipment.

I want my fatbike rims to be...

I have been using Light Bicycle rims for years in different MTB setups. When it was time to update wheels for my fatbike, I didn't have to think hard about where to look.

I wanted a wheelset I can trust in every condition. I wanted it to be tough but light. I wanted it to have a universal width so I don’t need multiple rims to match different tire widths for summer or winter. Harsh conditions demand reliable construction and components. Easy to service is a must for DIY mechanics like me. This is what Light Bicycle delivers.
