For many with the previous edition Reynolds carbon wheels, their experience with them could be described as agonizing at best. Broken tire levers, stuck on the side of the road and sadly abandoning the concept of road tubeless as a whole. Wheelmakers have done consumers a disservice by failing to standardize tubeless dimensions, but the AR41x is a step in the right direction. I was able to seat my GP5000 TL tires without a tire lever or a tubeless pump - massive improvement! Now for what really matters - the ride. The AR41x manages to capture lightness, speed, and a smooth ride quality all in one affordable package. On a recent ride, I subjected the wheels to 9300+ feet of climbing through mixed surfaces with no mechanical issues or discomfort from riding poorly maintained roads. The carbon was stiff but vertically compliant and returned every bit of power I put into it. These wheels are a great first step at elevating Reynolds back into the upper echelons of carbon wheel technology at a very competitive price.
