UNLOCK WIDTH As the plus-tire fad faded and tires returned to less balloon-y dimensions, there was a whistle-stop at around a 2.6" tire that turned out to ride really nicely, delivering the traction and confidence that plus-tire advocates had claimed for the real behemoths, but also performed like the aggressive trail tires we love. The Reserve 37 is designed specifically for tires between 2.5 and 2.8 inches in width and is 37mm wide internally to support the larger casing these tires have.
In the early design phases of our Traverse Fattie 29, we recognized that the number of aluminum wheels that had the prowess to both shred rowdy descents and to provide the efficiency required of our Northern California testing grounds' relentless climbs were far and few between. We also came to realize that trail riders expect certain features in a proper, send-it-ready wheelset. And for the price, we found that alloy hit many of these expectations, while also keeping enough jingle-jangle in your wallet for a post-ride beverage. Along with light overall weight, stiffness, and durability, another top priority for the Traverse was ease of use. First off, we got rid of the creaky straight-pull spokes and corrosion-prone alloy nipples. Next up, we landed on 28 J-bend spokes, for front and rear wheels, that are all the same length—making it easy to find replacements if needed. And finally, we engineered a new hub design, with a wider profile and higher flange to aid in overall stiffness. We took the traditional 19- to 23-millimeter standard and moved it out to what we found worked best in testing—a whopping 30mm “Fattie” width. A wide rim does a variety of things for ride performance—it better supports the tire for increased confidence and grip, it affords you the ability to run lower pressures, and it spreads impact out over a larger surface area to reduce the risk of damage. We also added our Zero Bead hook design to the mix, and this ultimately aids in preventing “burps” during hard cornering, while also making tubeless set up quick and easy. After developing what we found to be the perfect alloy trail wheels, we went farther down the perfection path, hand-lacing the rims to our own alloy hubs that allow for the same spoke length throughout the entire wheelset, via 28 DT Swiss Revolution J-Bend spokes and Pro Lock nipples. Inside our hubs, you'll find sealed cartridge bearings and DT Swiss 360 rear internals that'll keep you rolling smoothly for miles. We also wanted to ensure that each wheel was built correctly, so we built them by hand. Each wheelset comes packaged with a SRAM XD-driver and a tubeless valve stem in order to make tubeless set-up a touch easier. Please note that Shimano freehubs are sold separately.
TAKING THE GOAT MEDAL. The Santa Cruz Syndicate took the downhill racing world by storm when they showed up aboard a 29" V10 at Lourdes in 2017. Once the bike and wheel size were proven, we got to work on a 29" DH rim that would stand up to the high standards (and abuse) of Minnaar and Shaw. Now available in mullet-enabling 27.5" and 29" and approved for use on e-bikes.
Santa Cruz Reserve rims offer the perfect balance of width and wheel size. The rim beads on the Reserve rims are thick, the material saved by optimizing the placement of the spoke hole reinforcements went directly into the bead, making it extremely strong without adding weight to the overall construction. The beads are hookless: this makes for a better fit with modern tires, but also simplifies manufacturing, which results in more consistent carbon compaction—the technical way to say it's a stronger rim. - Lifetime warranty
