You’ll know of Reserve wheels thanks to its launch by parent brand Santa Cruz. However, given that Santa Cruz is also part of the family that holds the Cervelo road brand too, the reach of the Reserve wheels brand obviously has wider potential, so the Reserve brand is off on its own, complete with its own new website at reservewheels.com
The Reserve Wheels road line is expansive, with deep section wheels, all round wheels and climbing wheels for road bikes. For the moment, though, at grit.cx, our attention is taken up with just one new product and that’s the new Reserve gravel wheels. The Reserve 32.
Reserve Wheels Reserve 32
The new Reserve 32 wheels (and rims…) are going to be attractive to competitive riders, whether they race or not. As Reserve says “Most gravel products are aimed squarely at the rider looking for a pleasant day out in the country… But for those of us looking to toe the start line in the morning, stay with the group at the front, and contest the win, the Reserve 32 is the weapon of choice.”
- ● Gravel race. Purpose built for speed in the rough thanks to the tall profile.
- ● For those who want to push the limits of what a gravel bike can do, one gnarly descent at atime.
- ● Tubeless ready so you can float over the rough stuff.
- ● 24mm inner rim width and designed to pair perfectly with 32c tires.
- Depth: 32mm Width: 24mm, 24 spokes
- Weight: 410g (rim); 1515g (DT 240 set)
We’re still waiting for confirmation of UK pricing, but it seems that until next year (next actual year, not model year) that the Reserve gravel and road wheels will be appearing on complete Cervelo road and gravel bikes, so for now, that doesn’t matter.
