The Sun Rhyno Lite is a known rim. It has been known for decades. There are very few rims in which such a statement would be genuinely applicable. But why is that? What is it about the essence of the Sun Rhyno Lite that lends to its imperviousness against the passage of time.
For starters, how about its name? It’s fun to say, ‘Rhyno Lite’ has its own little jingle. The Rhyno Lite is a looker; it has an attractive mostly box shaped profile with a bit of “7x” rim styling heritage mixed in. In terms of style, these are subjectively the epitome of pristine understated industrial elegance. And let’s not forget, there’s probably a million of them out there. Everyone’s ridden a set at one time or another, even if they didn’t know it. The rim is strong, wide enough for almost anything, and great for building solid, reliable wheels.
We’re building these wheels with Shimano Deore 525 series 6-bolt disc QR hubs, (Shimano MTB 8/9/10/11 speed compatible), laced three cross with DT Swiss black stainless steel spokes and brass nipples. There is a front hub option, in case you have a front 15x100mm Thru Axle fork. If your front fork/wheel uses a standard QR, simply select the "QR" option. The rear hub is only available as a QR (10mmx135mm). This wheel set has been designed to offer flexibility in brake options, (they are both V-brake and 6-bolt disc brake compatible), reliability in terms of ownership, and versatility in reference to tire fit and tube selection.
If you’re not riding a pair of Rhyno Lite wheels, we hope that you’re at least walking with a set in your hands.
