Superstar Components Tech2 Evo AM/Enduro 135 Switch Wheelset 2010

Reviews / Wheels

At a Glance

Superstar have been pumping out some really good quality products at some awesome prices lately, and these wheelsets are the latest’s offering. Our Tech2 Evo AM’s turned up with a bag full of adaptors that meant they could run QR, 9mm, 15mm and 20mm front and QR, 10mm and 12mm rear which meant we could run them on any bike and fork set up. You order the size you want when you order your wheels but the adaptors are available separately at an additional cost.

Our wheelset sports white Switch hubs that are laced via Sapim spokes to 30mm wide electric blue AM-490AM rims. Considering the price these handbuilt wheels look fantastic. Forged and CNC machined hubs have full cartridge bearing and the rear has 3 double pawls that give excellent pick up.

At the Mega

Out on the trail these wheels feel bang on for a set of wide rimmed AM wheels, weight wise they are not the lightest but the penalty over wheelsets twice the price is not really an issue. During the week they performed really well, they are stiff, smooth and tough. We have ridden then up, down and over just about everything the Mega could throw at them on them it was a stern test, one that they passed with flying colours… Sure they have some scratches on the rims but that is it. No dents in the rim and they are still true with the bearings running sweet. We didn’t expect them to be so true at the end of the week, it really had us thinking about how impressive these wheels are for the money you pay.

Overall

If you are on a budget, but need wide adaptable wheels that look great, then these wheels are a must look as they represent solid, reliable performance at a price that offers great value.

RRP £159.99
