27.5″ – AM728 / EN728 – 34mm Wheelset

27.5″ – AM728 / EN728 – 34mm Wheelset

New for 2017, the AM728 / EN728 is Light Bicycle’s premium 27.5” enduro wheelset. Finally, you can experience all of the performance benefits of a $2500+ wheel system at a fraction of the cost!

The 28mm inner width will offer a nice tire profile for your enduro tires that is wide and stable but not too square-edged.

More air volume, a wider stance, and the bead seat retention system will keep your tires in place on race day and provide an incredibly solid tubeless platform.

Wheel stiffness is further increased with its deep profile, so you will be cornering and charging through rough terrain with more speed and confidence than ever before.

See full wheelset technical specifications below or read more about our technology here.

  • Rim Version

    The AM version or Standard version is the most popular version of the rim and the best choice for most riders.
    The "EN" or Heavy Duty version is 50g heavier and stiffer due to the additional reinforcement. The thicker walls can handle heavier (200lbs+) and extreme enduro riders. For most riders it is only used on the rear wheel. (See the difference in rim construction.)
    Adding the EN / Heavy Duty option may result in a delay in shipping. Please contact us if you are in a rush and we can confirm inventory levels.

    Spoke and Nipple Options

    We use Sapim spokes and nipple for all of our wheelbuilds. To learn more about your spokes choices, click here. Or, so learn more about the nipples that we use, click here.

    We have 8 different colors of Double Square Sapim SecureLock 7075 Alloy nipples for you to choose from. Why these particular nipples and not brass? They are durable and corrosion resistant. In our testing and experience they have proven more durable than brass offerings while saving quite a bit of rotating weight, not to mention making for a better wheel build because they result in less spoke wind up than brass. SecureLock ensures the wheel maintains tension without loosening or unwinding.

    Spokes

    The Sapim D-light spokes are our most popular option due to their versatility. Great for everything from cross-country to enduro.

    Nipple Type

    Our alloy nipples are of the highest quality 7075 alloy and outperform brass in corrosion tests
