Description

Lightweight, dependable wheelset for fast road riding with traditional rim brakes – we would like to introduce the Lark Light wheelset.

The next generation of our high performance lightweight road wheelset. Based around our lightest hubs including stainless bearings laced to our 25mm wide (20mm internal), tubeless compatible road rim.

Another evolution of our Lark wheelset, the Lark20 rim as its name suggests features a 20mm internal width to support tyres of any width and improve handling and air flow over the rim for faster riding. The rear wheel is built with a 2:1 lacing pattern with 16 spokes on the drive side and 8 on the non-drive-side for maximum strength and even spoke tensions.

As stock these wheels are available with these options:

hubs : JRA light road hubs, J-bend or Straight-Pull
rim : JRA Lark rims, 20 hole front 24 hole 2:1 rear. 20mm internal, 25mm external and 25mm depth.
spokes : Sapim Laser black spokes with D-Light on rear drive side
nipples : choose from brass or aluminium coloured nipples
weight:  J-Bend: front 638 / rear 795g (pair 1433g) Straight-Pull: front 660g / rear 820g (pair 1480g)

Options
freehub: Shimano, Campagnolo or Sram XD
stickers : your choice of sticker design and colour (or none at all)
spokes: choose Sapim CX-Ray black bladed spokes (CX-Ray option is 15g lighter than standard) front 638g / rear 780g (pair 1418g)

 

Looking for our Lark18 rim? we still have stock of the narrower and lighter Lark18 rim with an 18mm internal width and asymmetrical rear, which is available for the same price while stocks last. Either contact us before or after ordering to change to this rim. The rear is not laced 2:1 / Triplet but uses the asymmetrical rim to even out spoke tensions.

Buy tyres with your wheels and we’ll fit them for free

We’ve been riding the IRC Formula RBCC tubeless tyres for sometime, initially intrigued by the Rice Bran compound we are now pleased to offer IRC tyres on all our wheelsets.
The 25c IRC tyres come up true to size at 25.5mm when fitted on our Lark light wheels. Choose the RBCC for general riding and racing and the X-Guard for training and winter riding. If you prefer something wider try the 28c versions of these tyres in our tyres section.

“A fast reacting freehub with steel anti-bite inserts means no delay with drive, and the low weight means they pep up the performance of every bike we put them on… Either way, building takes a few days but JRA quality and longevity have been superb.”
