Santa Cruz announces new 700c and 650b versions of their Reserve Carbon rims
Many of us have been waiting for this - the chance to run Santa Cruz Reserve rims on our drop bar/CX/road bikes. Santa Cruz have just announce 2 new rims, one for 700c and another for 650b.
They've tweaked the shape a little to better suit these bikes - going for a profile that gives a little more compliance - on the 700c in particular.
As with the mountain bike versions, these rims are available on DT 350, Industry 9 and Chris King hubs - £1600, £1900 and £2200 respectively.
They're also available rim only, for us to do custom builds - that's £580 each.
Either way, backed up with the lifetime warranty we know and love.
