The ATR keeps going even when the smooth pavement doesn’t. This wheel is built on a robust, wide-profile carbon fiber rim to fit bigger all terrain tires, so you can explore back roads with great traction and comfort. The 24 steel spokes also add to the smooth ride quality, and with Center Lock disc rotor capability, you will enjoy positive braking even when that dirt road turns to mud. Look no further, the ATR is All Terrain Road.
MR5 (Mountain Rim 5) is the precise method of assigning different carbon fiber and lay-ups to 5 rim regions.
Reynolds specifies type of fiber, epoxy and resin adjusting the specs to achieve the perfect tensile strength, stiffness and elongation for each rim model.
Each batch is certified according to Reynolds’ specifications.
Cyclocross Magazine was able to get a closer look at the ATR wheelset this year at the 2015 North American Handmade Bicycle Show. Their First Look at the wheels was at Interbike last year before they were officially on the market. They quickly picked up on the intention and rugged nature of the ATR's: "Reynolds seems to be catering to rougher terrain riders, with the generous 21mm internal width (29mm external) and tubeless compatibility."
Keep an eye out for a thorough review from Cyclocross Magazine soon: "We’re really excited about the tubeless nature and width of the ATR wheels, and are looking forward to testing a pair."

Bike Radar selected the ATR as part of their Friday Five-a-Side, a weekly summary of exciting new bike gear. The rim profile and thereby gravel road and brake-bump demolishing capabilities of the ATR was well received. "Reynolds has taken the 21mm wide (internal width) carbon fiber rims from its cross-country mountain bike wheelset, redrilled them with 24 spokes front and rear, and spliced them on to a road hubset to create the new ATR. Purpose-built for dirt roads and gravel, the wider rim profile is intended to give sufficient casing support to higher-volume tires. Tubeless compatibility means those tires can be run at lower pressures without fear of pinch-flatting, too."

Road Bike Action Magazine selected the Reynolds ATR wheels for its "Coming Attractions" feature. Designed as a gravel-specific wheelset, the tubeless-ready Reynolds ATR carbon wheels weigh-in at 1496 grams and are 29mm wide. "Just in time to coincide with the growing flow of gravel bikes (yes, they are their own category), gravel-specific wheels, too, are rolling in."

Peloton magazine recently featured the ATR Disc wheels in its "New Hoops For Rough Rides" article. The ATR's are designed to be a large-volume tire and, with 29mm x 28mm dimensions, look more like mountain bike wheels than a wheel designed for cyclocrosss. After testing Peloton declared that the ATR's will suck up anything they roll over from dirt to gravel, and laugh. "You won't hurt these rims on the worst terrain and they won't hurt your pocketbook much either. Tubeless tape, valve stems and through-axle-compatible end caps included."Read Full Article
Road Bike Action Magazine selected the Reynolds ATR wheels for a "Carbon Tubeless Shootout" feature.
At 29mm, the ATR's provide traction and comfort second to none. "The result is an ultra-wide rim that can handle any wide clincher on both tarmac and dirt and inspire handling confidence."
The ATR's are intended to take a drop bar bicycle anywhere the rider steers it, whether tarmac or dirt – a noticeable characteristic in the eyes of the reviewer. "For the money, the ATR's simply can't be beat, thanks to their relative light weight and versatility, as well as easy tire mounting."

Peloton Magazine recently took the Reynolds ATR wheels for a spin and was thoroughly impressed by capability of the wheels.

Cyclocross Magazine was excited to receive a pair of ATR wheels for thorough testing under their lineup of test riders. The magazine had been anxiously awaiting their chance at riding these all-terrain steeds ever since they first saw the Black Label 29er wheels.
The reviewers were quite impressed with the durability of the wheels to say the least – "After a few months of use, despite some documented rim strikes under two different test riders. The rim is scratched from rocks, but is structurally perfect and still grips our tires firmly."

In its November 2015 piece on essential gear for gravel grinding, Outside Online added a pair of ATRs to their Ridley X-Trail review bike.
Jakob Schiller quotes, "I also added Reynolds ATR wheels, which cut weight, took some of the bounce out of the nasty washboard, and tracked like lasers on the loose gravel."Read Full Article
The Radavist spent some time getting the Reynolds ATR dirty.
"The Reynolds ATR, or all terrain road, wheels are carbon fiber wheels meant to take you from paved roads to dirt and vice versa. They’re light and resilient but best of all, they won’t bottom out your credit card.quot;.Read Full Article
BikeRadar spent some time with the ATR.
"ATR stands for All Terrain Road and these rims are big, beefy carbon affairs the like of which you would expect to see on a mountain bike."
