After lots of research and watching many videos, I decided that Light Bicycle was the best option.

I was looking for high-quality carbon wheels at a reasonable price. After lots of research and watching many videos, I decided that Light Bicycle was the best option. I loved the customization they offered - I could choose everything and make the perfect wheelset for ME. It's true custom, unlike most other companies. I need an aero wheelset more than 50mm deep but not too deep and something as light as possible. The AR565s were perfect. So light for 56.5mm wheels, and the new aero X-Flow was visually stunning. The customer service was also top-notch. Excellent communication.


I was so thrilled when I unpacked them and saw the quality of the build.

I received the wheels in a few weeks. The package was excellent and sturdy, and the wheels were excellently protected. I paid no extra taxes to France.

I was so thrilled when I unpacked them and saw the quality of the build: the tension of the spokes was excellent, and the rim was flawless, splendid, and better than expected. The hidden nipples were a plus for marginal aero gains. I measured and weighed the wheels, and everything was as advertised. I mounted the Michelin Power Cup with Latex tubes easily.


The riding part was fantastic. The wheels felt extremely reliable.

The riding part was fantastic. The AR565s were much more responsive and definitely faster-rolling than my previous 45mm wheels, and they were almost the same weight. The wheels felt highly reliable too - total confidence. I rode fast with them, 47km/h in my group ride, the Parisian BLAKK FAST PACK, and they were perfect. I could feel their speed when we were accelerating at 55-60kph. They coasted perfectly. When there was an attack, they didn't let me down. These wheels would be perfect for Crit Racing. Everyone complimented me on them; indeed, they look stunning on my black Canyon Ultimate CF SLX. The UD paintless finish is beautiful. The Aero X-Flow rims set them apart from other wheels, and many riding buddies asked me what brand they were and where I got them!

On some EsCape Town with a bit of climbing and descents, the 565s were also excellent. I climbed easily with them, as they didn’t feel like heavy aero wheels. It is often a compromise between ultralight climbing wheels and heavier aero wheels. Most aero wheels weigh 1500 to 1600g but these Falcon Pro Flyweight wheels with the great Carbon Ti hubs weigh only 1370g. Impressive for 56.5mm deep wheels. To put it in a nutshell, I absolutely love these wheels and have nothing bad to say about them. 10/10 A+ as far as I’m concerned and a total no-brainer, so much so that I bought a pair of carbon gravel wheels from Light Bicycle a few weeks later.
