Santa Cruz Reserve Carbon Rims are built from the highest quality carbon on the market, confidence in the design and strength is backed up by a lifetime warranty, just like Santa Cruz frames. Whether it's a sunset lap with friends or a race run against the clock, a broken wheel ruins any ride. Santa Cruz set strength and impact resistance as their highest priority, but strength doesn't have to mean uncomfortably stiff. These rims are compliant enough to avoid that harsh "wooden" ride that gives some carbon rims a bad name. They only make off road bikes at Santa Cruz, so they have the privilege of being able to focus purely on the mountain bike experience. Everything from the thickness of rim beads to external spoke hole reinforcements comes purely from the experience of knowing what riders need at every level, from international racing to local trails. The rim beads on the Reserve rims are thick, relative to other rims on the market, as much as a millimeter thicker on either side, in some cases. The material saved by optimizing the placement of the spoke hole reinforcements went directly into the bead, making it extremely strong without adding weight to the overall construction. The beads are hookless: this makes for a better fit with modern tires, but also simplifies manufacturing, which results in more consistent carbon compaction. Lifetime Rim Warranty.
