For a manufacturer constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible in bicycle wheel design, Reynolds has again outdone itself in the form of its new aptly titled MTN 27. 5 AM - Black Label wheels. They use its proven MTN hoops as a starting platform, but add in custom DT Swiss hubs and spokes to complete this exclusive 27. 5 all-mountain package. At the heart of Reynolds' new Black Label wheel lineup is the high modulus carbon XC rim used in its current MTN collection. The 27. 5 AM edition is 31mm wide at the outside, and 23mm wide internally, and that generous width increases the volume of your tires, which enables lower pressures while also enabling a more stable platform for cornering. Tubeless compatibility has been continually refined, with an enhanced bead hook and a deeper middle section that makes tire swaps a bit easier. Naturally, they provide the characteristically damp ride that you'd expect from a durable set of carbon rims, meaning that the benefits extend far beyond weight and stiffness. The extensive aerodynamic expertise of the team at Reynolds is also on full display, meaning that these carbon hoops cut through the air with a bare minimum of drag. The Black Label name is derived from Reynolds' new graphics technology, which relies on heat sublimation. This extensive process results in the clean and durable, blacked-out appearance on the rims that, in addition to giving off a stealthy look, shaves roughly 10-15 grams per wheel compared to standard decal application. The rims are laced to DT Swiss 240 Centerlock hubs that utilize replaceable end caps, which make them compatible with most modern axle standards. The hubs have also been given a custom Black Label graphic treatment to match the rims, completing the all-black aesthetic. The rear hub employs DT's proven alloy freehub, meaning that durability and serviceability is ensured. The hub shell is a straight-pull affair, which improves stiffness and makes replacing broken spokes a snap...
