Reserve Carbon 37 Wheels

The widest range of choices.

Plus-curious, but not willing to commit to an ultra-wide rim that’ll square off the swathe of 2.6 tires popping out of molds around the world? The new Reserve 37’s width (37mm internal) is optimized for tires from 2.5 to 2.8 inches wide, and will still support a 3.0 nicely.

We tested a bunch of rim widths before committing to 37mm for our widest rim offering, and we feel it’s the best balance of support for wide-but-traditional tires (Maxxis’ 2.5 WT models, for instance), while also offering enough volume to let 2.8-3.0 tires solve the traction+volume=shred equation.

With more tire choices becoming available it’s a great time to have a rubber fetish. From the traditional widths and treads to the big meat of Plus size – and now the new Goldilock’s porridge of 2.6-inch tires that offer more volume and traction with less of the squirm of the widest ones – the Reserve 37 means you don’t need to swap out rims or wheels to try new things.
