- Superstar isotope wheels
I am looking for some relatively strong boost wide wheels.
Has anyone used these:

I’m running a pair (29r) on my On One Big Dog build but have only put in half-dozen rides thus far. They seem fine for now and no loosening of spokes, etc. They actually look finished really well but I’m no expert. Went up tubeless real easy (ChunkyMonkey and an Aggressor) using Gorrila tape..
Only small issue is with the front V6 15mm hub – the end caps move slightly (they do not fall off) so it needs a little care when installing wheel in the fork.Posted 4 days ago
They look remarkably similar to the on-one trail wide wheels that came with my big dog.
Only small issue is with the front V6 15mm hub – the end caps move slightly (they do not fall off) so it needs a little care when installing wheel in the fork.
Mine where a real pita to get in, not helped by the torque cap compatible fork. If your fork takes em, I recommend the torque cap upgrade, just for ease of wheel removal over any extra stiffness that might be there…Posted 4 days ago
@jimdubleyou I thought the On One’s were built by Superstar but using the V3 hubs instead of V6. The end cap issue is not such a big thing to me as I don’t remove the wheels much but I can imagine it would be a pain if you transported the bike in a car and had to take the front wheel off every ride.Posted 3 days agosuperstarcomponentsMember
The isotope rims are hardly flimsy, i can laser ENDURO on them if it makes you feel better! Unless you like crashing into rocks with flat tyres you will be just fine even for DH use.
and the loose endcaps comments which are being recycled endlessly, we changed the spec about 18 months ago…. and now people complain they are too tight.
any questions please fire them over

Are these wheels much heavier? Any disadvantages over the others? It’s for a stumpjumper but I live in the alpes and use the bike in bike parks.Posted 2 days ago
@superstarcomponents my v6/isotopes were supplied in December, does that mean I got old hubs from 18 months ago?
The end caps on the boost 15mm front don’t fall off, they just rattle a few mm when you move the hub, enough to stop them being installed in the fork. Is that the same problem you had originally as I wasn’t aware of previous issuesPosted 1 day ago
