The Ride:
Supple is the name of the game with the Reserve 25 from Santa Cruz. Built to our R45D hubs, Reserve 25 rims are responsive and comfortable, smoothing out chattery rough roads. These wheels are ready for adventurous all road pursuits, and the inevitable high speed impacts with baby heads, death cookies, and roots.

The Rims:
The Reserve 25 is build to smooth out rough roads and provide excellent, responsive handling. Engineered for high volume, 40-55mm tires. Santa Cruz rims are backed by a lifetime warranty. Tubeless ready to reduce weight and rolling resistance, in addition to providing a more supple ride with increased traction.
The Hubs:
The Chris King R45D Centerlock is the culmination of over 30 years of bearing experience and more than 20 years of hub building experience. Our R45 rear hub combines a redesigned RingDrive™ system with 45 teeth, for lower drag and near instant engagement, a lightweight hub body, and our legendary made-in-house bearings.
Our bearings, available in steel and ceramic, have surgical grade steel races that are machined simultaneously to ensure perfectly matched inner and outer races. The quality and speed of our bearings are what sets us apart from the competition and they are what you will feel and notice on every single ride. As Chris King bearing tracks burnish they get faster with age and all our hubs and bearings are fully serviceable for years upon years of demanding use.
The patented Chris King RingDrive with 45-points for the R45D will get your power to the ground fast, provide unmatched engagement, and give you that legendary Chris King angry-bee sound.
