Road Rims - Clincher

Reserve is a company committed to creating the best carbon rims for mountain, gravel and road cycling. Started by engineers from Santa Cruz, then buttressed through a professional partnership with Cervelo, the team at Reserve has built a reputation for exceptional strength, resilience, and physical characteristics, including tubeless read excellence and impressive aerodynamics. From day one of rim sales Reserve has backed their carbon rims with a lifetime warranty, which is the ultimate indicator of belief in the product and the desire to back it up.

The Reserve 40mm Carbon rim was created for the front wheel in the Reserve 40|44 Wheelset road disc brake concept, which employs a wider, shallower front mixed with a narrower, taller rear wheel, which has proven on the tarmac and in the wind tunnel to deliver speed with the benefit of stability. And it’s designed to provide a comfortable, safe ride all day long, even if you hit it a rough patch of road or encounter an occasional short gravel-strewn side road, alley or driveway. The 40|44 was conceived via CFD and wind tunnel development, in conjunction with expertise from Cervelo. Pro cycling specific requirements and proper aerodynamic considerations and applications were applied to maximize the conceptual purpose of the 40|44 wheelset as a great all-rounder, especially on hilly or and moderately flat or variable where more responsive wheels that still carry an aero advantage ensure the ability to carry speed at all times in a group or solo riding situation.
