27.5 Trail Blacklabel Boost Wheelset by Reynolds
In cycling as in life, there is virtue in moderation. Reynolds' 27. 5 Trail Blacklabel Boost Wheelset proves this. Kind of. The wide-but-not-plus rim bead occupies the versatile middle ground between XC hoops that look like road wheels and the 40mm+ monsters we're seeing on the latest extreme enduro sleds. So it's definitely the Goldilocks choice there. But the wide, Boost hubs are decidedly immoderate, and so is the effect of increased drive stiffness and responsiveness that they grant the wheels. The Blacklabel branding represents another departure from moderation, as it indicates that these wheels are Reynolds' top of the line construction. They feature the brand's Mountain Rim 5 (MR5) lay-up, which involves five different carbon matrixes applied to five different areas of the wheel. If that sounds decidedly immoderate, well, it is--the construction process is more complicated than many framesets. And though we don't often dwell on the possibility of equipment failure while roosting berms and challenging lines that are, well, ill-advised, the fact that Reynolds puts so much engineering into the rims helps ensure that we won't have to dwell on equipment failure. For a few months. While wearing a cast and saving up for a new wheelset and/or bike. The Goldilocks theme of moderation definitely applies best to the wheels' rim width, which hits the just-right dimensions of 25mm, internally. Mid-sized tires pair well with this width, and we find that the 2. 4-2. 5 range provides the best all-around blend of extra cushion and increased traction without getting floppy in hot corners. As with Reynolds' 27. 5+ wheels--which sit at 40mm internal width--there are specific instances when we like plus-sized tires; however, we find that the combination of a mid-sized rim and a mid-sized tire handle almost every trail situation we can imagine, so they're our pick when we're limited to a single set of hoops and rubber. Boost hubs have also become a staple around the Competitive...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
