Offering a warm welcome to those who'd like to save a few dollars, but don't like to compromise quality, Reynolds introduces the TR 307 Boost 27. 5in Wheelset. Built to charge hard, these hoops are crafted from the same over-built and burly carbon fiber of Reynolds' Blacklabel series, so you can cook it into banked berms and chunky rock gardens alike with total confidence, but feature a house-made CNC machined hub to knock the price down a few digits. The rims themselves are stretched out a bit to accommodate loftier tires than you'll find on the traditional Blacklabels, allowing you to enjoy a plusher ride and a touch of pneumatic suspension when chattery trails unfold ahead of you. The TR 307 wheels are built with asymmetrical rims that we also saw on the Blacklabel series, which enables a stronger wheel through more even spoke tension. This translates to a ride that powers through the rocks without deflecting if you pick the wrong line and would otherwise get bucked around. When combined with the wide, Boost spacing, the wheels strength truly shines through with an evenly tensioned wide angle to keep you locked into your line no matter what. While Boost may not be news to quite a lot of us, it's worth reiterating how it works: by setting the hub flanges wider, Reynolds is able to improve the spoke bracing angle, which stiffens the wheels laterally and torsionally (translating braking and pedal input from the hub to rim to trail) without stiffening them radially (so the wheels don't translate every bump and root straight up the seatpost). While bumps and trail chatter are less of an issue with such a wide rim, we're generally under the assumption that less of a bad thing is a good thing. Adding 28 straight-pull spokes to the mix, you'll find lasting durability, and just the right amount of flex, so your wheels don't feel harsh through wily rock gardens. Like the Blacklabel and TR-S series, the TR 307 uses Reynolds' Mountain Rim 5 (MR5) carbon fiber layup. Thi...

Maine ocean islands provide the only nesting sites for Atlantic puffins in the United States. Eastern Egg Rock in the midcoast region, Seal Island and Matinicus Rock at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, and Machias Seal Island and Petit Manan Island off the downeast coast provide habitat for more than 4,000 puffins each summer.
