I've been using Light Bicycle rims for my custom wheel builds for ages. I have them on my MTB, Road and Cyclocross bikes - all set up tubeless. I first bought them for my road disc-brake bike in 2017, as I couldn't find any light disc wheels on the market at that time or the price tag was just ridiculous. I based my choice on the positive reviews I read online and the experience of my friends with these carbon rims.

They are lighter than any other disc road wheelset I've used.

Light Bicycle was one of the first manufacturers who started producing disc-specific road rims without a braking surface. My choice fell on 35 mm deep, 25 mm wide rims. I built them on Carbon Ti hubs and Sapim CX Ray spokes, and the total weight came up as 1360g!!! Tubeless setup with 28mm Schwalbe Pro One tires was super easy!

10,000 km is done and still counting!

I have done about 10,000 km on my road bike since then with no issues whatsoever! This included the 9-day 1600 km Ride Across Britain this year, where the wheels again proved to be a light, fast and reliable companion.

Day-7: The trip goes on. Tired, but excited!

Day-8: It is my friend in the photo. I was carrying the full-size camera all 1000 miles :)

Light Bicycle is my go-to rims for any build. Trust me, these are one of the best carbon rims on the market - you will not be disappointed!
