Reserve, the brand perhaps best known in our world for Santa Cruz Reserve carbon wheels, is launching a new set of wheels made for gravel biking.

Reserve first debuted in 2014, started by a group of engineers from Santa Cruz Bicycles that wanted to make the strongest mountain bike wheels on the market, backed with a lifetime guarantee.

Their new Reserve 32 gravel wheels are built for gravel racing, with a tall profile, and a 24mm inner rim width, optimized for narrower, 32c tires. The rim depth is 32mm, and the rims are a claimed 410g each. As a 24-spoke wheelset, with DT Swiss 240 hubs, they weigh a claimed 1,515g. The wheels retail for $2,400.

Like Santa Cruz Reserve wheels, Reserve guarantees their service and prides themselves on quick replacements in the event of an accident. See more info at the Reserve website.
