New Santa Cruz Reserve Carbon Wheels - Lifetime Warranty!

2 minute read.

The prototype Reserves survived Danny MacAskill using them in his Wee Day Out video, and the Santa Cruz-SRAM Enduro Team has been racing on the 29-inch version without issue since the start of the year Santa Cruz is so confident in their wheels that they offer a lifetime rim warranty with 24 hour replacement turnaround.

  • Strongest wheels on the market
  • Lifetime Warranty 
  • Built in Santa Cruz

Reserve wheels are currently offered in 30mm internal width and exclusively as an upgrade on the Nomad or Strega. More widths and sizes will be announced soon and orders are being taken..

Five years ago, a Santa Cruz debunked every skeptic's fear about the long-term durability of carbon fiber bicycle frames. Carbon was proven to be much stronger than the aluminum counterparts. Now they are doing the same for wheels with their Reserve 30 Carbon wheels.

Strongest Wheels on the Market

Whether it's a sunset lap with friends or a race run against the clock, a broken wheel ruins any ride. Santa Cruz set strength and impact resistance as their highest priority, but strength doesn't have to mean uncomfortably stiff. These wheels are compliant enough to avoid that harsh "wooden" ride that gives some carbon rims a bad name offroad. They only make offroad bikes at Santa Cruz, so they have the privilege of being able to focus purely on the mountain bike experience. Everything from the thickness of rim beads to external spoke hole reinforcements comes purely from their experience of knowing what riders need at every level—from international racing to your local trails.

Lifetime Warranty

Lifetime. No gimmicks. Not limited. If you do actually manage to break these rims while out riding, Santa Cruz will replace it for free. And probably high five you in the process! If it gets run over by a truck they will even help you out with a low cost accidental 'crash replacement', because life's too short to argue. We've got riding to do.

Built in Santa Cruz Using Sensible Parts

You should never miss a ride, and when you travel to remote places, it's impossible to bring a backup for everything, or all the special tools for all the different parts. Great pains were taken to use readily-available, standard parts these wheels, J-bend spokes, mechanical-lock nipples (that you can access without taking the tire and rim strip off), and hubs from DT Swiss and Industry Nine make maintaining the wheels or finding spares a lot easier for you.
