Mequon, WI (March 30, 2022) – Hayes Bicycle Group is pleased to launch a collection of Trail wheels, featuring six new wheelset options from Reynolds, along with a new, versatile Manitou Jack dropper seatpost.
Taking the rider further off trail, the new Reynolds Trail wheels redefine the category, being light, strong, and compliant. The new low profile, wide channel rim increases cornering speed, trail feel, and improves compliance, featuring an asymmetric rim profile for better power transfer and overall wheel durability. Bridging the gap between XC speed and Enduro tough, Reynolds trail wheels will leave you with confidence-inspiring precision and control.
Blacklabel Mountain wheels combine Reynolds’ asymmetric, hookless rim profile featuring our proprietary Impact Dispersing Matrix (IDM) technology and MR5 lay up process. The rim design offers a perfect balance of width, depth, and layup for wheels that provide ultimate durability, riding comfort, and trail-hugging traction like you’ve never experienced before.
Manufactured and designed by Industry Nine and Ringlé, the precision hubs set the bar in mountain bike wheel performance. All Reynolds Trail wheels are available with the most current Shimano and SRAM freehbub bodies.
Reynolds Blacklabel 327 PRO & 329 Trail PRO
Reynolds’ premium wide trail wheelset, the Trail PRO, starts with Reynolds’ asymmetric, hookless rim profile featuring our proprietary Impact Dispersing Matrix (IDM) technology and MR5 lay up process, specifically created for speed, durability, and comfort. These wheels feature 100% CNC machined Reynolds/Industry Nine Hydra hubs with 6-pawl, .52-degree engagement, Sapim CX-Ray spokes, and aluminum nipples.
Reynolds Blacklabel 327 Trail EXPERT & 329 Trail EXPERT
The Blacklabel Trail Expert wheels combine Reynolds' asymmetric, hookless rim profile, featuring our IDM technology and MR5 lay up process, specifically created for speed, durability, and comfort. The wheels include Reynolds/Ringlé Super Bubba X hubs with 6-pawl, 4-degree engagement, Sapim CX-Ray spokes, and aluminum nipples.
Reynolds TR327 Trail & TR329 Trail
The TR327 Trail and TR329 Trail series use the same asymmetric hookless rim profile as our premium Blacklabel Trail wheels, with our CR3 lay up process. The wheels include new Reynolds/Ringlé SRX MTN hubs with 3-pawl, 12-degree engagement, Sapim Sprint spokes and brass nipples.
Manitou Jack Dropper Post
The Manitou Jack dropper post features a cartridge bearing for smooth, precise operation and three drop options – 185mm, 160mm, and 80mm – for improved handling when you need it. Available in 30.9 and 31.6mm diameters, the Jack includes a Manitou cable head which is the same dimension of a cable clamp, allowing all the cable tension adjustment to be completed on the lever side.
To further demonstrate the serviceability of Manitou products, the Jack dropper cartridge can be fully rebuilt to replace bushing and seals when the time comes, keeping the smoothest post on the market feeling like it's brand new. The 80mm Jack features a shorter overall length at 320mm, for use on youth performance, Gravel and XC applications; while providing an actuated auto reset function when the post is in the fully dropped position. Manitou: Science of Smooth.
