Featuring a new low profile and wide channel rim that increases cornering speed, direct power transfer, and improved compliance.

Our IDM (Impact Dispersing Matrix) rim construction delivers industry leading impact resistance and durability with a lifetime warranty.
BLACK LABEL HYDRA HUBS
Reynolds/I9 proprietary Blacklabel Hydra hubs. These hubs are fully CNC machined with an instant .52° engagement for immediate power delivery.
309/289 XC features a 30mm internal width front rim paired to a 28mm internal width rear. We have chosen a mixed width for a variety of reasons. Wider rims allow you to run lower pressure, increase traction, and add precision to your steering. However, wider rims can also result in a less compliant and bumpier ride. To avoid the later we have reduced our rims profile to 21mm. By reducing the depth, we have improved overall compliance and comfort while simultaneously offering all the benefits listed above that come with a wider rim.
REYNOLDS MR5 WITH IDM
IDM is our Impact Dispersing Matrix, a combination of high-quality carbon ﬁber and a unique resin with exceptional impact dispersing characteristics. Used in our BLACKLABEL 309/289 XC and DH wheels we optimize the layup schedule to improve impact strength, tune ride quality and achieve very low weights all without sacriﬁcing durability. With durability proven on the WC downhill circuit our IDM material stands alone in its strength to weight ratio.
