Reserve 30 29in Chris King Boost Wheelset by Santa Cruz Bicycles
There are few things as disheartening as heading out to ride the Whole Enchilada, but calling it short because your wheel decided it preferred to taco. Taco-d rims, pulled spokes, and over all wheel mishaps are instant day enders, but Santa Cruz aims to mitigate issues with our hoops all together with its Reserve 30 29in hoops, which provide stiffness beyond your average wheel, and are cleanly laced up to Chris King hubs for stunning precision, and snappy engagement. Santa Cruz constructs its reserve hoops out of gram saving and stiffness enhancing carbon fiber that takes things to the next level and improves the ride in every conceivable trail situation. Instead of replicating the pothole-like impact test used on traditional carbon hoops that are better suited for road wheels, Santa Cruz developed its very own testing protocol that simulates one-sided impacts that normally occur when a rider is traversing over trail obstacles at speed. As it began testing the leading manufacturer's carbon wheels, it became readily apparent that most carbon wheels not only broke along the bead, as expected, but they also failed along the spoke nipple interface due to the drastic increase in spoke tension as the wheel flexed upon impact. To prevent these breakage issues, Santa Cruz beefed up the rim bead, increasing its thickness by one millimeter on each side for improved resiliency when you're thrashing the living hell out of these wheels. The design engineers at Santa Cruz then fortified the spoke holes with square-shaped reinforcements you can visibly see, which protect the spoke nipples from suddenly pulling through due to harsh impact. Santa Cruz isn't the first company to reinforce a carbon wheel's high-stress areas, but it's one of the first to offer a lifetime warranty. This warranty applies as long as you actually break them while riding and racing and not due to running over them with your car, into the garage, etc. Of course, it's worth noting that this particular R...

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.
