The New Reserve DH Wheels

Built for the Syndicate

In an omen of things to come, the Santa Cruz Syndicate took the downhill racing world by storm when they showed up aboard a 29-inch V10 at Ft. William in 2017.

With the new wheel size proving its mettle, we got to work on engineering our own 29-inch DH rim that would stand up to the high standards (and abuse) of Minnaar, Shaw, and Vergier. Fast-forward a year and the result of our efforts sat on stage as “Today’s Fastest” when Loris claimed the top step in Andorra.

27.5 or 29"

Reserve DH wheels are built for the pros, but available to bold riders the world over in both the 29- and the new 27.5-inch wheel size.

Ridden harder than ever, for longer, more often

Our Reserve rims are already renowned as the strongest, most trusted carbon MTB options. But because we know people will be riding harder than ever, for longer, more often, we created a 27.5-inch Reserve DH rim for the rear wheel of the Heckler. Like all Reserve wheels these have a lifetime warranty because we believe in them and you can rest easy knowing the components are built to bear up against whatever you throw at them.

The Reserve wheelset is standard on the X01 and XX1 build kits but is also available aftermarket.

Made for Downhill

The latest Reserve carbon wheels were built with DH riding in mind. You get a 31mm internal width (suited for 2.4 to 2.6" tires), 20 x 110 boost compatibility, and either Chris King hubs or the option to purchase rim only.
