2017 Reynolds 27.5 Enduro Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

There was a time when all rims were aluminum and pretty much the same. That time has long passed, and Reynolds is further demonstrating how to precisely design for discipline with their BLACKLABEL ASYM 27.5 Enduro Wheelset.

Each wheel in Reynolds’ lineup is different from the other, even though they rely on the same hubs, spokes, nipples, and rim material. They tune not only with spoke count, but with rim shape and carbon-fiber layup. With those main elements, they can design a rim that is just right for the task at hand.

The Enduro rim is offset to the left to better balance out spoke tension, as both front and rear wheels are dished. This rim is hookless, 29mm deep, 34mm wide on the outside of the tire bed, and 28mm inside. Wheel weight is 1565g for the set.

The rim layup is called MR5 (Mountain Rim 5) Technology. It refers to how they assign particular materials to five different sections of the rim. Those are the rim bead, the side wall, the tire channel, the nipple bead, and the spoke face. Each area  has its own type of carbon-fiber, epoxy, and resin. This allows them to tune the rims characteristics to you have more than enough of what you need, and nothing more than necessary of what you don’t.

The shape has been made just so to work with the tire widths, ideal float, and impact strength peculiar to gravity-encouraged riding. Stronger than the Trail rim but lighter then what you’d need for a downhill rim.

Spoke holes are drilled for the alloy nipples to be exposed so it’s easier to adjust spokes when necessary. The spoke count is 28 front and rear with Sapim CX-Ray straight-pull spokes doing the supporting.

The hubs are a joint project between Reynolds and Industry Nine. The hubs are produced by I-9 and the internals are identical to the Torch hubs, but the shell is unique to Reynolds, with straight-pull flange widths and heights tuned to mesh perfectly with Reynolds rims. The hubs come as 12mm thru-axle designs, 100mm in front, 135mm in rear. End caps can be purchased separately if you want to turn the hubs into quick-release designs.

Likewise, the cassette is a standard 10/11-speed Shimano/SRAM-compatible spline body. However, an SRAM XD Driver body can be purchased separately and installed at home. The rotor mounting method is Centerlock.

The wheels come tubeless-ready with tubeless tape and valves.

Your new Reynolds BLACKLABEL wheels can be covered by the Reynolds Assurance Program or RAP. If you’re the original owner of the wheels and purchase a plan from the reynoldscycling.com website within 30 days of buying the wheels, you are giving yourself a ‘no questions asked’ repair or replacement policy. They’ve expanded the program to give you the choice of purchasing one, two, or three years of enrollment. The program covers two wheel incidents per policy.

The Reynolds BLACKLABEL ASYM 27.5 Enduro Wheelset is Reynolds way of giving you power over the rocky drop.
