I got an old disc frame to build up, never built disc before

I like light wheels, so I went looking for the lightest disc rims and found these

same as

Anyone built these? They ride well?
295g seems optimistic for clincher, but it is hookless...

Max pressure of that rim is 60psi/4.1bar
If you run road tires, you will want to go above that, making this rim useless for road purposes.

Yep, hookless would be tubeless only and I could get away with 50-60psi in a tubeless tire

I thought hookless was only aimed at MTB?

Running that same setup 28 to 38 tires on my crux. Have used them tubeless with 28 Hutchinson on my tarmac with 75psi ( I know the max should be 60 psi). Working well so far. Did blow off rim when I accidentally put 110 psi in them. Now have about 5000 miles total on them. These were from carbonfan.

It’s been awhile ago I thought they were 22 ID but I see similar shows 23.

Some photos on the scale and on my tarmac. Also have roval clx 32s that broke and are being replaced by warranty. These will go back on my crux then.

30.7 I believe there’s photos on a previous post about tubeless tires. Will take new photos later this week now that they are stretched out.

I wouldn't use a hookless rim on a road bike, no way, no how.

I think this is a light bicycle rim if lb are the manufacturer.
