Reynolds AR29 Carbon Wheelset

Rim brake wheels are still in heavy use even for allroad use, which may include dirt, urban, pavement, and mixed-surface roads, and the Reynolds AR29 Carbon rim brake wheelset is sweet option. Today's direct mount rim brake caliper standard and many new road frames/forks can accommodate 30mm tires with ease. For those converting or using a cyclocross frameset, up to 35mm tires can shine as well. The wider rims allow for greater range, matching many of today's framesets. Having a 27mm max external rim width (19mm IRW) when running 28-30mm "road" tire gives the rider more grip, control, stability and comfort over various road surfaces. Reynolds has long offered reliable and versatile carbon wheels at great price points, and are perfectly positioned with the AR29 Carbon Wheelset to keep rim brake riders well-equipped.

The Reynolds AR wheels deliver the standout performance of the ARx series by utilizing the same carbon fiber rims, but in a more competitively priced wheel offering- meaning the the step down may be in the hubset, spokes, etc. That step down doesn't mean cheap, just a different grade still carrying solid performance and serviceablity. The AR29 rim brake pair weighs in at 1455 grams, which is a pretty nice weight for such a capable wheelset. The GW RRB hubset is laced to the PR3 developed 29mm profile rim in a straight pull, high tension set-up with Sapim Sprint spokes and easy to access external brass nipples. The front wheel is 20 hole- laced radial, and the 24 hole rear is laced 2x/2x. The refined wider rim shape mates perfectly with tires from 25-30mm, but is optimal for road, aero purposes at 25-28mm. The design has offers serious footprint and excellent crosswind stability. The wheels accelerate quickly, handle great, and maximize the benefits of tubeless tires.
