Front Road Reza Wheel (18mm internal width)
Tradition meets modernity with the Reza wheels. The Reza consists of a symmetrical 2-cross 20 spoke front wheel, and an asymmetrical 2-cross 24 spoke rear: to acomodate the wheel center offset caused by modern 12sp road cassettes allowing balanced spoke tensions between left and right flanges.
Hand laced in-house with proprietary techniques to ensure no truing or re-tensioning necessary.
The Reza wheels features
- Hand laced, yielded-stress-relieved in Metro Vancouver, Canada.
- TAIRIN premium 6069-T6 aged alloy 18mm internally wide rims front / back.
- Modern rim profile, Tubeless compatible, with a symmetrical front rim while featuring an asymmetrical rear rim to archive higher spoke tensions on the rear left flange.
- The Reza QR traditional hub set. EZO bearings, and a robust 10deg engaging hub designed for the least amount of mantenience.
- Various combinations of Sapim spokes and nipples to tailor to your riding demand.

This wheelset comes with a set of options for spoke and nipple combinations:
- Race/ Brass - For optimal balance of strength, durability, and weight, we offer the wheelset with Sapim Race 2.0-1.8-2.0mm double butted spokes. Paired with the Sapim Poylax brass nipples. Butted spokes are more elastic in its thin section, which migrate stresses on its ends better than straight spokes.
- CX-Ray / Brass - For light and weight conscious riders. Best performance in weight-to-strength ratio. This combination is the lightest but still provides a very solid platform for all terrain riding. The CX-Ray spoke is flat-bladed, well known for its flexibility to migrate stresses from its ends, and its aerodynamic. This combination is 45g lighter per wheel, 90g lighter as a whole set.
Nipples - Sapim Poylax
Brass is back as the default option due to popular demand! No fuss brass to end all worries related to corrosion from selant or road salt, and fatigue failure. With a modern profile, Sapim's Polyax shaped nipples are the perfect choice for high end builds. Alloy Polyax nipples are available upon request (we had no problems with Sapim's 7075-T6 alloy nipples, but brass is 100% guarantee trouble free; and folks say its worth the smallest weight gain) All nipples come in black.
Brake Fitting options
The Reza wheelset is for traditional rim-type brakes, and wont accomodate for disc.

Hand laced wheels
Our wheels are hand laced in Surrey, BC. We use multiple traditional methods of spoke yielding-stress-relieving and tension balancing, so that when you receive your wheel, you can rest assured that there is no seat in periods, or spokes losing tension in initial rides - these which would require re-tensioning like machine and poorly built wheels.
Premium hand built wheels requiere dedication and take much longer than machine built, but the accuracy and attention to detail produced by the traditional way is one of the key aspects that makes Tairin wheels superior. By choosing Tairin Wheels, rest assured that every wheel has been hand crafted by a master wheel builder, so you get the best quality and labour, at the best deal out there.
