An exercise in absolute minimalism, XC-race wheels share stability traits with Beliebers, yet all-mountain wheels are weighed down by the prospect of going big. If you're looking for a 29er wheelset that'll lighten things up without becoming weak in the knees, Reynolds' MTN 29R Trail Carbon is the answer. Designed with aggressive, high-speed riders in mind, the 29R Trail features a 21mm internal rim width -- 2mm narrower than Reynolds AM line, so typical 2. 25in-trail tires avoid oblong profiles and fill out to an ideal shape. The star of Reynolds' 29R, however, is the high-modulus carbon rim. At just over 400 grams per rim, the wheels' loss of rotational weight over alloy counterparts will be immediately felt. For tubeless compatibility, an enhanced bead hook and deep middle section make tire swaps easy, and air burps a rare experience. Naturally, carbon provides a characteristically damp ride, extending the benefits far beyond weight and stiffness. Furthermore, aerodynamics is equally respected at Reynolds, and this is evident in the MTN 29R's wind-cheating profile created through computational fluid dynamics. The rims are laced to Reynolds' straight-pull disc hubs with replaceable end caps. And, all current standards are included for out-of-the-box installation. The rear hub employs an alloy freehub, which places pawls in the shell to increases the size of the ratchet mechanism. As a result, durability is enhanced. Likewise, front and rear shells are drilled for 28 straight-pull spokes to provide stiffness and simple spoke replacement. The DT Swiss spokes are laced in a three-cross pattern for high tension and total wheel strength. While the wheels are plenty tough, all Reynolds owners are able to buy themselves some extra peace of mind by purchasing a two-year damage protection plan. It's called RAP, short for Reynolds Assurance Plan. The Reynolds MTN 29R Trail Carbon Wheelset uses six-bolt rotors and comes with a set of tubeless-ready valves, along with 1...
