Reynolds AR29 Carbon Disc Wheelset
Deep section carbon wheels look boss for sure, however, the added weight, increased vertical stiffness, and instability in windy conditions means that for most of us (outside of racing anyway) are better served with something with a little shallower profile.
Enter the AR29 Carbon Disc Wheelset from Reynolds providing a 30mm depth for a touch of an aero benefit when you need it, but it won't leave you white-knuckled and holding on for dear life while descending a canyon in swirling winds. Enjoy the ride comfort of a shallower set of hoops along with the reduced rolling resistance and improved grip of wider, lower pressure tubeless road tires with these wheels, all while not breaking the bank.
Reynolds has been building carbon hoops for a while and has refined its technique for building lightweight and durable rims. This AR29 wheelset features a wide, 21mm internal width for plumping up tires, increasing its volume without having to resort to wider, heavier tires. Its 30mm external width provides heaps of support for lateral stiffness for sprints, out of the saddle climbing, and high-speed cornering. Additionally, its shape is optimized for crosswind stability so you can ride with confidence and without the fear of getting blown around in blustery conditions. Laced up with Sapim Sprint spokes and durable brass nipples, this is a wheelset that we wouldn't hesitate to ride every day and the inclusion of a lifetime warranty only further bolsters this.
