- What lightweight wheelset?
Podium rims are very light, go tubeless really easily and surprisingly tough. I’ve really tested mine over the last 2-3 years and not a single problem.
ZTR hubs seem to be reliable too, not the lightest but a good halfway house.
Massive weight difference between the 3 sets you mention.Posted 5 years ago
1600-1700g for the Superstar sets.
<1300g for the Podium/ZTR set.
My 6 yr old Crossmax SL’s needing replaced
For xc and some racing
Had a look at these so far
Crest version of these
Anyone else any suggestions for a nice lightweight wheelset?Posted 5 years agoPeterPoddyMember
I’ve got 2 sets of nice used wheels for sale that are only a few frames heavier than the Superstar ones including rim tape.Posted 5 years agoDT78Member
My current xc wheelset, handmade, A2Z hubs, stans olympics, alloy nipples dt swiss rev spokes. Very lightweight and been impressively reliable, only snapped a couple of spokes with a stick through the rear wheel on a night ride.
Also have superstar hubs on crests. The trizoid hub has started to make interesting sounds after a year of very light use for the occasional trail centre visit.Posted 5 years agostufiveMember
