The move back to all mountain riding and the enduro race scene is a welcome sight and has seemed to inspire a resurgence in the mountain biking world. The new format has also created a new category of product opportunities of which wheels will play a key role. Long time industry player Reynolds has developed a set of carbon wheels specifically for the enduro riding niche. The all mountain offerings are available in 650B and 29" to stay on the leading edge of bike manufacturers trends.
The new 2014 wheels feature a Reynolds proprietary hub that uses a thinner shell but stronger flange and has better internals.
We have been test riding our set for a year and put this video together to show what we thought of the rims. Our test set is for 26" wheels but Reynolds is ceasing producing of 26" wheels as a company strategy.
