Superstar Components Trizoid AM 135mm/QR Wheelset 2011

Reviews / Wheels

At A Glance

The Trizoid Wheelset is new from Superstar Components, their Tech 2 Evo wheelsets were hugely popular last year and we ran a set at the Mega Avalanche that is still going strong and running true. Needless to say we were keen to try out the new version which boast a triple pawl pick up with 120 points of engagement. In your hand the power engagement is impressive to say the least. As with all Superstar products the pricing is very competitive and you can pick up a set of these for £220 coupled with the excellent AM rims that we have been running for a while. There are plenty of options regarding hub adjusters to fit just about any kind of set up.

On the Trail

There is a reassuring buzz from these wheels as the pawls hum along those 120 points of engagement. And it is engagement that you get when you put your foot down to pedal. The pick up is instant and there is no lag in the power delivery. They roll extremely well too and although we have only been running them for a month or so at the moment they are still as straight as the day they arrived. We’ve had a lot of comments on them out on the trails as well gentle hum they give off attracts a lot of attention. It isn’t as loud as a Hope Pro 2 clicking away; in fact we hardly notice it. But it’s a noise that isn’t a million miles away from a Chris King hub, and that’s what turns the heads.

Overall

Super fast engagement, sound quality and look the business. And all at a very reasonable price too…
