Description

The DT Swiss 240 EXP hubset equipped Reserve 52|63 Wheelset is a solid example of how Reserve works to create an optimal wheel system. Reserve wheels start with carbon rims, as that is what Reserve designs and produces. The company then builds wheels with components from other brands. Focusing on rim development and carbon fiber construction while leaving the hubs and spokes to experts who already produce those just make sense. The Reserve 65 rim was designed to be a rear-wheel complement to the Reserve 52 for sprint stages, triathlons, and anywhere with straight long enough to make a break for it. The mid-profile 50mm in front slices through the air while still guaranteeing predictable handling in crosswinds, and the deep, 65mm rear helps you bank watts for those crucial final kilometers. This Reserve 52|63 DT 240 Carbon Wheelset is ready for a tubed or tubeless tire setup, is built with sensible and easily-replaceable spokes, and all the nipples are on the outside, so you can focus on racing, not fussing around with your tubeless tape when you need a quick true or tension job.

DT Swiss supplies the fast responding, incredibly reliable, wonderfully easy-to-service and truly lightweight DT Swiss 240 Center Lock disc hubset for this version of the 52|63 wheelset. There may not be a hub as easy to work on and manage than the DT 240, nor has there been one for years. The 240 has been upgraded and refined without losing it's pure functionality and simple serviceability. The low profile straightpull flange design and wide bearing placement keep the spoke tension high and the thru-axle hub interface incredibly stout, regardless of weight. The use of straightpull spokes allows for very high tension overall, excellent power transfer, lateral stiffness, and some rim and rider forgiveness. External nipples are used for easy true/tension with this 24 hole (front and rear) set-up with 2x/2x lacing all-around. The hubs are built for thru-axle use, with a 12/100mm front and 12/142mm rear configuration to go along with the Center Lock disc rotor interface. The drive system on the rear hub is the 36T EXP Ratchet, an improvement on the previous generation along with a reduction in weight. With exceptional reliability and engagement, DT's own steel cartridge bearings and superior seals, the 240 equipped 34|37 wheelset delivers exceptional protection from the elements and smooth running long life.

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.
