21mm Internal Rim Width
The optimum rim width for different yaw angles and riding speeds can be debated. However, one thing that was overwhelmingly clear was that you guys wanted a wider internal rim width for riding with wider tires. The wider 21mm internal width rim gives a better aerodynamic performance with a 25mm wide tire compared to our previous model Lún Road due to the better transition from tire to rim. 21mm internal rim width is perfect for either 25mm or 28mm tires but can take tires all the way up to 47mm.
Stability Meets Speed
Our Lún Routte wheels put aerodynamic efficiency first. They feature our F-RAPID Design. The Front and Rear Aero Profiles are Individually Designed to meet their unique demands. The front wheel is optimized for its leading-edge performance giving speed and stability in a variety of conditions with a more rounded rim profile. The rear wheel profile is taller and is optimized for lower yaw angles with an emphasis on trailing edge performance.
“Lún” is Chinese for “Wheel”. We think this perfectly summarizes what the Lún Routte range is: Performance wheels. No gimmicks, no marketing charades – just race-ready wheels that won’t break the bank. We took our 10+ years of experience in making and racing carbon fiber wheels and borrowed some trickle-down tech from our hugely successful HYPER wheels to make a wheelset that is ready for anything you can throw at it, packaged in a more affordable package.
Go Faster, for Less
We love riding bikes fast, and we guess you do too. But we also know that most people in the world are balancing their disposable income with supporting a family, paying off student debt, or just don’t wanna ride a bike that cost more than a down payment on a house. We hear you loud and clear. Racing bikes shouldn’t be about who has the deepest pockets. We think well-made, aero-tested, and most importantly safe equipment should be available to the masses and that’s the main philosophy behind the Lún Routte series.
Rim or Disc: the Choice is Yours
However, due to the new wider width of the rim, some wheel / brake caliper combinations may be incompatible.
We hope the after-market industry will continue to develop rim brake calipers that are compatible with wider wheels.
You can use the data below to check compatibility with your brakes. We recommend you check the actual dimensions as brake manufacturers are often not accurate in their max clearance size listings.
Tubeless Ready if you are
We’re hooked on Tubeless. We love its improved rolling resistance and the lack of pinch flats. We designed the Lún rims to be as easy to set up tubeless as possible. No spoke holes in the rim bed mean you never have to worry about rim tape or air leaking through the spoke holes. Combined with a high-quality tubeless tire such as the Schwalbe Pro One TLE™, mounting the tire is straightforward and the tire can usually be seated with a regular floor pump and minimum fuss. A 21mm wide internal rim bed (27.6mm /27.8mm external width at the brake track) means the rims are ready and optimized for the latest generation of performance road 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.
We engineered some pretty amazing hubs when we designed our range-topping HYPER wheels, we thought it would be a shame to waste that effort. Therefore, the Lún Routte series shares most of its hub internals with the Lún HYPER wheels. The heart of the hub is a 17mm oversized axle and oversized 6803 and 6903 bearings. This keeps the hub stiff and light while minimizing friction on the bearings resulting in more of your energy being used to make your bike go faster, longer, and lighter. By default, the Lún Routte series comes with robust precision manufactured stainless steel bearings.
Quality Rims, Inside and Out
Your mother was right when she told you what matters is that you’re beautiful on the inside. We strive to make rims our mothers would be proud of. Lots of manufacturers in the bike industry use confusing marketing acronyms to tell you how good their carbon is. HMC, OCLV, UHT, FACT, BBQ, WTF… it’s all a bit over the top if you ask us. We take good quality carbon (Japanese Toray) and have skilled craftsmen lay it up by hand here in the Chinese capital of carbon; Xiamen city.
Let’s face it – we all love a bit of carbon, so why hide it from the world under a layer of paint? Our Lún Routte series rims are coating-free. The carbon you see is as it came out of the mold. We could talk about how this saves us up to 20g per rim, but we’ll be honest – we think the best thing is that it just looks cool.
|Brake Type:||Rim Brake||Disc Brake|
|Internal Rim Width:||21mm||21mm|
|Front Rim Depth:||46mm||46mm|
|Rear Rim Depth:||54mm||54mm|
|Front External Width:||27.6mm||27.6mm|
|Rear External Width:||27.8mm||27.8mm|
|Front Wheel Spokes:||18||21|
|Rear Wheel Spokes:||24||24|
|Minimum Tire Size:||25mm||25mm|
|Maximum Tire Size:||47mm||47mm|
|Max. Tire Pressure:||110psi||110psi|
* Each wheel’s weight is subject to ±25g of tolerance
** Never exceed the maximum air pressure printed on the tire
– Compatible with regular clincher tires with innertubes.
– Compatible with tubeless-ready tires from leading manufacturers.
– When using tubeless tires do not exceed 95psi for riding. (Upto 110psi may be required to initially seat the tire) 95psi is plenty for road tubeless.
– Tire pressures should decrease as sizes increase. EG: 30mm tire no more than 85psi, 35mm tire no more than 60psi, 40-45mm tire no more than 40psi.
The system limit (Rider + bike + luggage, etc.) is 120kg. However, riders above 90kgs should regularly inspect their wheels or get a qualified bike mechanic to do so.
– Rim Brake versions: Wheels, QR Skewers, Tubeless Valves, Valve Extenders, Brake Pads.
– Disc Brake versions: Wheels, Tubeless Valves, Valve Extenders.
*Valve extenders are not required and not supplied with 30mm rims.
