- Strong, cheapish 26" rims?
Tactic should be bang on – I’ve been on a Sentinel/Tesla combo all season and the Tactic is wider and stronger than the Sentinel.
My wheels have been spot on despite a full season of UK and European Enduro racing. Suggests the negative hype is just noise on this forum.
And at £40 it’s a steal!
If you’re building it yourself, be sure to oil the nipple hole and spoke threads so you can get some good tension on without spoke twist.

2.5 minnion on a 521 feels nasty. I have a 23mm internal width rim on the front with the same tyre and it feels planted, no squirming ever.
TMBH that is what I have on the front with a nukeproof hub. I love the width but the weight is overkill for the riding I do.Posted 4 years agoianvMember
Cheers for the replies.
£40 is a bit steep though for what I am looking for. Basically something simple for my jump bike that is no frills and solid.
What are the cheaper superstars (AM or DH ones @ £25)like?
i have some spank rims which seem bullet proof. not the lightest. i might be persuaded to part with them
Which ones and how much?Posted 4 years agosuperdanSubscriber
I’ve done two full DH seasons (including a few BDS rounds) and a week in morzine on a pair of the cheap superstar DH rims, laced onto my Hope Pro 2 Hubs. Been fine, now looking a little tatty so might treat myself to a new pair. They are rebadged Alexrims.
