We build our Falcon Pro Wheelsets with Sapim CX Ray Spokes from Belgium and Sapim Polynax Nipples.

From the Curator:

โ€œWe set off to curate a new line of value rims and wheelsets.
One that was able to compete against big names in the weightweenie category but at a fraction of the cost.

We set perimeter goals, and used big German names who have dominated the weight weenie arena as the benchmark.

Light Bicycle stood out, for their decade long track record in producing durable rims that were extremely competitive in both weight and price.
Being in-house manufacturers themselves, they had the capacity to customize rim geometry, carbon layups and finishes -
even optimizing the product's weight for a specific target / geographical market - and we certainly took advantage of it.

One of the perimeters highlighted was the 90kg flyweight limit.
To clarify, this is a rider weight limit, and not a system weight limit (which includes the weight of the bike).

In our study, we rarely found the (default) 135kg weight limit necessary in South East Asia,
(in fact, this was almost double), where the average weight of a Singaporean Male is 72.8kg, 71.5kg in Malaysia
and 61.8kg and 61.4kg in the Philippines and Indonesia respectively.

As in all things Engineering, optimization was key, but with a built-in safety factor, of course."
