Reynolds' peerless Blacklabel construction' Check. Boost hubs' Check. Aggressive angle of attack inherent in 29er diameter' Check. Rim width tailored for today's meatier tires' Check.

Compared to the Trail model, the Enduro 29ers plump out by 4mm, externally, so they take advantage of today's mid-sized tires in order to maximize air volume while still keeping the shoulder knobs on the shoulders. The combination allows for lower PSI, higher air volume, increased traction, and a touch of added cushion when enthusiasm overrules restraint and good judgment. These qualities are especially welcome on the six-inch 29ers mentioned above, which refuse to take the easy line whether climbing or dropping in. Boost hubs have also become a staple around the Competitive office and the industry as a whole because of their increased responsiveness. It's something of an old story by now, but it's worth rehashing: by setting the flanges wider Reynolds (or more accurately, Industry Nine) improves...

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.
