The Reserve 27 is designed for the way most people ride—a bit of up, a bit of down, and a lot of miles in between. The narrower width pairs well with a wide range of tires, from 2.0 to 2.5, depending on your preference for tire profile. It’s a bit lighter than the Reserve 30, and the beads are slightly thinner. It’s tough, but designed for less all-out aggressive riding than the 30 or the DH. This wheel is not compatible with Ebikes.
Reserve uses externally reinforced spoke holes to strengthen the area where the rim sees the most force, around the spoke nipple. This provides for improved strength without adding unnecessary weight.
Ride More Miles
The perfect combo of stiffness and compliance makes for a comfortable, light wheelset for all day trail epics.
Asymmetrical rims front and rear make for a stiffer, stronger and more reliable wheels by improving the bracing angles and equalizing the spoke tensions between the drive and non-drive side spokes.

What's with the raised square-shaped area around the spokes?
That's material right where you need it. With information from testing in our carbon lab in hand, we set about determining how to build the strongest rim possible, and part of the result is the square-shaped reinforcements you can see around the spoke holes.
Can you build me a wheelset if I send you my hubs? Do you sell rim-only?
We do not currently offer wheelbuilding services, but we do offer rim-only options so you can have your dream wheels built by an experienced wheelsmith.
