Best light weight wheels
Nope, although I nearly bought a pair. They seem to be own brand hubs from Action Sports, I asked on Weight Weenies and someone said they'd been good. Neil said they were exactly the same as some of the Superstar hubs, but I'm not sure on that.
The Hope Hoops on 355s are nearer to 1700, even the Crest ones are 1650 claimed. However… you know they're gonna be tough, and they are good value. I'd still be tempted to try the Fun Works ones!Posted 7 years agom_t_bMember
I just got a set of these:
1750 for the pair and built for Trail/AM might be overkill for you, the hubs are campagnolo and will go forever they are new so dont expect many reviews on them but so far a great wheelsetPosted 7 years ago
Thanks guys. I never seem to wreck wheels so I want a super light set.. Seems like talking to Just Riding Along is a good place to start. It's a real shame Hope don't do a quiet hub as they seem the best for the money and I know the quality is top notch. I have some Hope hubs on my cross bike and I curse them every time I ride it.Posted 7 years agoBigAirNigMember
American Classic MTB26 ……. you may get a White set a little cheaper on-line……
Otherwise – Hope Hoops – Pro3 hubs ….. good for your weight too !!Posted 7 years agoPaul McGMember
How about the Prolite Allein from CRC. £250 and c. 1460g (for once, this is actually accurate – weighed when they came oot of the box).
I've done a couple of rides on them, including a 3-hour Trailquest today where I got a few hops and drops wrong and landed heavily. I'm not exactly svelte either at 84kg in the nud. They seem to be standing up to the abuse although it's early days, and certainly feel quick.Posted 7 years agoDT78Member
I'm having this debate myself at the moment, I'm almost sold on the AC wheelset, though hadn't looked at the ztr's on justridingalong. For some stupid reason I thought the prices quoted were for single wheels not full sets!
I'm pretty certain those fun works hubs are not the same as superstar. I spent some time looking at the pictures etc… they do not look the same as the switch hubs. They are close to the superlegga however the quote weights are different…Posted 7 years agoiain1775Subscriber
just folded my Hope Pro2SP with Stans 355 on a very slow speed stupid crash at Cannock Chase.Posted 7 years ago
I walked away without a scratch for once!
The sort of thing I really would have expected the wheel to be fine with
Wheel was almost new, only the 4th ride or so, (and first biggie)MarmosetMember
I think those actionsports hubs are like my A2Z hubs – the front one certainly looks like a dead ringer but the rear is slightly different. No problems with mine – light hubs – I'm using them in conjunction with 717's and DT Comps and the set comes in at 1650g – could obviously go lighter using Stans rims but I wanted silver rims…Posted 7 years ago
