Reserve MTB Rim

Santa Cruz Reserve Rim

3 Years in the making and built from the ground up specifically for mountain biking, The Reserve Rim from Santa Cruz changed the game when it launched in 2017. No detail has been left unattended to in the search for the ultimate in strength, compliance and performance on the trails. Perfect for any type of riding, available in widths to cater to everything from XC and Marathon racing all the way to Downhill and Freeride. 

Santa Cruz set strength and impact resistance as the highest priority when developing the Reserve Rim, but this hasn’t led to an uncomfortably stiff ride, this wheelset is compliant enough to remove the ‘wooden’ feeling that some carbon rims suffer from, yet so strong it sailed through UCI testing standards so easily Santa Cruz had to develop their own tests, where the Reserves beat all competition.

Thanks to relentless prototyping and testing everything from the thickness and shape of the rim beads to spoke hole reinforcements has been perfected to maximise strength, so much so that spokes will fail before the rim does. Thanks to a sensible build that doesn’t require a whole new set of tools, a broken spoke won’t slow you down for long though.

Backed by a no-nonsense lifetime warranty. Santa Cruz are so confident they have perfected the wheel that if they fail while you are riding they are replaced, simple as that.

New! Santa Cruz Reserve 29" Rims now available with 37mm internal diameter.

Plus-curious, but not willing to commit to an ultra-wide rim that’ll square off the swathe of 2.6 tires popping out of molds around the world? The new Reserve 37’s width (37mm internal) is optimized for tires from 2.5 to 2.8 inches wide, and will still support a 3.0 nicely.

Santa Cruz tested a bunch of rim widths before committing to 37mm for their widest rim offering, and they feel it’s the best balance of support for wide-but-traditional tires (Maxxis’ 2.5 WT models, for instance), while also offering enough volume to let 2.8-3.0 tires solve the traction+volume=shred equation.

With more tire choices becoming available it’s a great time to have a rubber fetish. From the traditional widths and treads to the big meat of Plus size – and now the new Goldilock’s porridge of 2.6-inch tires that offer more volume and traction with less of the squirm of the widest ones – the Reserve 37 means you don’t need to swap out rims or wheels to try new things.
