AR29x Carbon Disc Wheelset
The Reynolds AR29x Carbon Disc Wheelset is a climber’s delight at only 1390 grams for the set. These lightweight yet durable carbon fiber rims feature a shallow 29mm depth that sheds all unneeded weight but maintains adequate stiffness for powerful accelerations thanks to its 27mm width. The tubeless ready 19mm channel provides a little extra air volume for improved ride comfort, and helps lower rolling resistance when coupled with wider tires. And while the carbon fiber rim remains the same between this wheelset and the more modestly priced AR29's, the AR29x is upgraded with Reynold's CNC-machined TR3 hubset, premium bladed spokes, and alloy nipples instead of brass. Together, these changes help the AR29x shed about 65g of weight, delivering a wheelset that's equally prepared for race day as it is to be your daily driver.
Reynolds has been in the carbon rim game for a while, using years of experience to refine its technique for building lightweight and durable rims. This AR29x wheelset features a wide, 19mm internal width for plumping up tires, increasing its volume without having to resort to wider, heavier tires. Its 27mm external width provides heaps of support for lateral stiffness in 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. And to ensure peace of mind while braking on long canyon descents, Reynolds employs their new Ctg2 Brake Track with 30-percent better heat-resistance that previous models.
