The Falcon Pro were built with one goal in mind: making the best rims possible for racing or long distance riding. Whether you find yourself racing a local crit or on a month long backpacking trip, the Falcon Pro might just be the perfect match.

The Falcon Pro rims are Light Bicycle's state of the art product;

ExoTek - Designed to come out of the molds as a finished product, the new resin system has superior consistency and forms the smoothest and most durable finish to date. From a lengthened fatigue life to more robust interlaminar bonds, ExoTek raises the bar in performance and aesthetics.

EcoTek - Built from the highest grade of steel, Light Bicycle has engineered a completely new series of molds and developed a process that delivers a near flawless product. More time is taken through the layup and assembly process so that no post-production finishing is required. This new process is more environmentally friendly because it requires less heating cycles, no sanding, and no painting.

BlackTek - Rims featuring BlackTek come out of the molds as a finished product. Traditionally, rims are wet-sanded to remove imperfections like excess resin and then sprayed with a clearcoat. BlackTek rims come with a factory finish and the outer carbon layer is never disturbed after the curing cycle is completed. This is the most hard wearing and scratch resistant finish Light Bicycle has ever produced.

Tubeless - All Light Bicycle rims are tubeless compatible with bead seat retention. In most cases a floor pump is all that is needed to set them up. The bead shape is tailored to each rim width to achieve the best fit. The hookless and clincher profiles have a smooth radius to reduce the chance of a pinch flat.

5 YEAR Rim Warranty with Crash Replacement - 25% discount on broke or compromised rims

- All wheels include a full one year warranty, plus any additional mfg warranties.
