Free your steed.
The current trend of road-looking frames that blur the lines between tarmac, dirt, gravel, and even light singletrack has only hit one major speed bump so far. The demands of terrain and a do-it-all attitude don’t sit well on the pencil-thin Euro rims that have dominated road cycling for so long. Reynolds' ATR (All Terrain Road) Carbon Disc Wheelset, with its generous width and hybrid construction, frees your gravel steed from the fetters of tiny tires, giving you 21 glorious internal millimeters of tire-mounting space.
The ATRs may say road right in the title, but their construction speaks mountainese. They're made with the same MR5 lay-up philosophy as Reynold's top-end mountain rims, which artfully distributes five different fiber and resin builds throughout the rims in order to effectively match each material's specific properties with each location's particular demands.
The wheels are also disc-ready, with the same centerlock attachment hardware featured throughout Reynolds' line of disc-brake wheels. For a wheelset meant to handle all surfaces in all conditions, disc brakes are pretty much a requirement. The ability to modulate stopping power over around five times the force as rim brakes is nice, but the real selling point is that they always grab immediately, so you won't barrel into a tree or a car backing out of a driveway while your pads spend a useless rotation clearing water or debris from the braking surface.
Finally, it would be sheepish to offset all these gains by forcing us to use antiquated, heavy, flat-prone, and less-forgiving clincher tires on the ATRs, and Reynolds doesn't disappoint. As with many of the Utah-based manufacturer's other wheel lines for 2015, the ATRs are tubeless-ready, which adds even more traction, efficiency, and comfort to an already superlative ride experience.

My Customers bike!
My customer loves her wheelset on her bike.
Building a 2016 Trek Boone. Has 15 TA on front with QR on back. Looking at the photos, it looks like they come as QR adaptable to TA? Looks like a good fit to me? Let me know what you think.

I picked these up this spring. I built a ti gravel bike that I use for commuting also. I installed 700x33 Specialized Trigger tubeless tires and run them at 50psi. I upgraded from a 23mm WTB cross rim to this. The difference in weight and width was immediately noticeable. These wheel corner like they are on rails. I have put 800 miles on these so far, which is comprised of MUT, gravel roads and even a local trail that is flat and smooth. Flawless in every condition. On the MUT during a commute, the seams and heaves from heat are not even felt.
The only glitch I have had with these wheels so far is a broken spoke. Drive side rear let go last week at the nipple. Took it to my friend who does non-destructive inspections for the Air Force, and the x-ray showed the break was caused by torsional stressors. I am guessing a weakness in the spoke when threads were cut, then the building process did it in. No big deal to replace as the straight pull spokes go in and out very easy....except....nobody on the planet seems to carry DT revolution straightpull spokes! Even the 2014 catalog doesn't list them. If you are going to market a wheel as easy to repair by not using proprietary parts, don't use parts in a 2015 wheel that are obosolete!
That being said, these wheels are legit for what they are meant for. At 1500g, I would even venture to say cross would be no problem. These are the same rim as the BlackLabel mtb rim they use, so I think cross should be just fine.
Through axle compatable? What adapter(s) do they come with?
They come with adapters for 142x12 rear and 15x100 front, as well as 135x9 rear 100x9 front.
What is the minimum tire size that you can use on these rims? Can I mount 25mm road tubeless (e.g., Schwalbe One) tires?
Reynolds told me that they wouldn't go smaller than 25mm.
Do not attempt to mount the new Schwalbe Pro Microskin tires. Or if you do, immediately see if you can get the tire back off the rim. I've had to literally cut 3 of the new Schwalbe Microskin tires off the Reynolds ATR rims because the tire bead gets locked into the rim. Love the wheels and love the tires....just not together.
Are there any rider weight or tire pressure limits on the Reynolds ATR wheels? Also can you confirm that these wheels are Shimano 11s compatible?
There is no listed weight limits. I would say that 250+ would be pushing the limits under extreme conditions. Yes these are indeed set up for 11 speed. I also have not heard about any max pressure, usually anything over 140+ could pose problems. Get in touch with me directly at email@example.com if you would like to get an order going. I can assist with that and pricing. Talk soon!
