Product Description
Reserve 27 27.5in Chris King Boost Wheelset by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Carbon wheels offer increased stiffness, more precise handling, and often a lower weight than their aluminum counterparts. They also require less maintenance, as the carbon rim is better at staying true. That being said, carbon rims can fail, and when that happens you can't just bend them back into shape like aluminum ones, hence why durability is so important. Santa Cruz understands this, and spent three years developing their wheels with the intent of making the strongest carbon wheelset on the market. After extensive testing to determine critical failure points of carbon rims, the Reserve carbon rims were created to withstand immense levels of abuse. Now, they are available with Chris King hubs, one of the leading hubs on the market, making the Reserve 27 27. 5in Chris King Boost Wheelset a worthy upgrade for your trail or all-mountain bike.

To address these issues, Santa Cruz designed the Reserve carbon rims with an extra thick bead wall and external spoke hole reinforcements, putting more material where it matters and using their expertise with carbon to create a stronger layup. Asymmetric spoke holes further improve wheel strength by equalizing spoke tension between the drive and non-drive sides.

The rims are laced to black-anodized, beautifully machined Chris King hubs. These hubs are truly a precision instrument. They have 5-degree engagement, provided by the 72 points of pawl-contact, giving you a lightning-quic...
