Bernard Kerr and the rest of the Pivot DH team beat on these wheels in the World Cup DH circuit.

Downhill carbon wheels is a bit of an oxymoron but Reynolds put the research and testing in to thoroughly beat on these 1900 gram wheels. The asymmetric carbon rim allows more even spoke tension for increased durability and ride quality, and the 28 mm hookless rim channel provides outstanding tire fit for tubeless applications. The Industry Nine 6-bolt hub provides ultra-quick, reliable 3-degree engagement.

Price is steep at $2700 at the moment, but if you’re looking for the best combination of weight and strength, this is a great option. We’ve used the latest crop of Reynolds mountain wheels and even their trail models seem very durable, surviving direct rock hits that cause tubeless flats.

Downhill

1900 grams and a Limited Lifetime warranty is a bold statement for a carbon downhill wheel.
