FIRST LOOK: NEW RESERVE WHEELSETS

NEW MOUNTAIN BIKE WHEELSET

NEW CARBON MOUNTAIN BIKE WHEELS

It is astonishing but amazing what trail mountain bikes are designed to tackle. There can be pretty robust and need to be able to handle a mix of anything that can be thrown at them. From cruising mellow singletrack to crushing boulder-strewn steeps, they deliver a do-everything performance that inspires the rider to go faster, more smoothly. To meet-riders demands, Reserve has set out to build the strongest, most reliable, and best-handling wheelsets on the market. Today, the Reserve team has launched the 30|HD which is specially designed to stand up to abuse, featuring a 30mm width for use with 2.5 tires and a redesigned inner rim bed that handles the hassle out of seating new tires.

Reserve is now offering three different mountain bike rims in the lineup, each specifically designed for an intended category and use.

What is the difference between the RESERVE 30|HD and the 30SL?
The basic design of the two rims is the same: Both feature the new rim bed shape with bead bump to ease tubeless tire installation, and a new wider and lower rim profile to increase strength and lateral rigidity while adding vertical compliance for enhanced traction. The differences are in the thickness of materials. The 30|HD has more overall material which adds lateral rigidity and impact resistance appropriate with the intended d category. The 30|HD also has a 27.5 version which can be used for 27.5 or MX bikes.
What is the difference between the RESERVE 30 and the 30|HD?
Our venerable 30 has been Reserve’s most popular and most widely used rim, and like the 30|HD, was designed for aggressive trail riding. The 30|HD replaces the 30, so from a material and stiffness perspective, they are similar. It’s the subtlety of the ride where they differ. While lateral rigidity is similar, the new wider and lower rim profile increases vertical compliance to take the edge off harsh impacts.

Is there a rider weight limit?
Like the rest of the Reserve wheels, there is no rider weight limit and a lifetime warranty with the 30|HD rims.
Is the 30|HD E-bike compatible?
Only two rims meet the requirements of use on e-bikes: the Reserve 30|HD (also current model
30) and Reserve DH on the front, and the Reserve DH on the rear.
