Rider Support

From the Reserve composites engineers to our team of wheel builders to our group of rider support reps, Reserve stands behind the wheels we make. Whether you’re flying down the legendary DH track at Ft. William, railing corners at the Alpe D'Huez, or leaving it all out there on Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway, if you break a wheel while riding, we’ll send you a new one to keep you going. If you damage the wheel outside of the scope of its intended use, we’ll get you a low-cost crash replacement ASAP. We know that missing a ride sucks, and missing a race can mean throwing away months of prep, so we’ll do everything we can to ensure that never happens because of one of our wheels.

Please see the bottom of this page for technical wheel building documents.


Reserve will repair or replace at its option any Reserve rim or Fillmore valve made by Reserve Wheels that is damaged or destroyed while riding. We will also stand behind the quality of the wheel build for any wheels built by Reserve. Components of the wheel, such as the hub, will be covered by that manufacturer's warranty. The warranty will be in effect for the lifetime of the rim or valve and is available only to the original owner.

Crash Replacement

Shit happens. Back over a wheel, forget to thread in the axle on your roof rack, or find yourself in the pile-up at Wednesday Worlds? We'll help you out with a low-cost crash replacement rim to get you back to riding without breaking the bank. Just contact Rider Support and we'll be in touch.
