We love gravel. It brings back the sense of adventure to cycling. The go-anywhere, explore new roads attitude is endearing. However, often to get to these new off-the-beaten-path places, we have to first ride some stretches of familiar tarmac. This is the unique challenge of a gravel wheelset: making it robust enough to handle even the wildest trail and wide enough to take the grippiest of gravel tires but all while maintaining a wheel that’s light enough to give your bike snappy acceleration and precise steering and aero enough that the ride out to the gravel doesn’t take you all day.
Two sizes, Pick your flavor.
Available in both 650B or 700C variations, the Lún GRAPID wheels have an option to suit your needs. Most gravel bikes will allow for installing wider tires when using a 650B wheel, allowing you to go exploring on the snarliest of terrain. However, if your frame supports it or if you don’t need quite so wide tires, 700C offers lower rolling resistance and traverses smaller objects like tree roots and rocks easier than it’s 650B brother.
Tubeless Ready if you are
We’re hooked on tubeless. We love it’s improved rolling resistance and the lack of pinch flats. We designed the Lún GRAPID rims to be as easy to setup tubeless as possible. No spoke holes in the rim bed means you never have to worry about rim tape or air leaking through the spoke holes. Combined with a high quality gravel tubeless tire such as WTB or Panaracer, mounting the tire is straight-forward and the tire can usually be seated with a regular floor pump and minimum fuss. Upto 25mm wide internal rim bed (35mm external width) means the rims are ready and optimized for the latest generation of performance gravel tires. Reinforced carbon hooks ensure a wider range of compatibility with tubeless tires from most manufacturers. But hey, if you’re still not convinced by tubeless technology, you’ll be happy to know our rims are 100% compatible with traditional clincher tires and tubes.
