UK made hubs built with quality spokes and rims for under £200? Yes, we have listened and made a no frills hubset in our UK factory but with most of the high end features of its big brother the V6. By moving to standard bearings rather than fancy Custom SKF and halving the number of pawls we can slash the price for the ultimate bang for buck wheelset.
By building the hubs by the thousand and piggybacking alot of the components from the V6 range, the V3 hub was born. Allowing us to hit agressive pricepoints unheard of in the market even with cheap Chinese hubs! This paired up with Alex rims great MD rim range which we used to sell as our TR/EX/DS/XX range and Sapim Leader spokes. Most brands would sell a build of this quality for £300 and make out its the latest and greatest, we are being honest telling you its great (but obviously not as awesome as our flagship V6 range)
So what do you get?Superstar V3 hubs fitted with standard sealed catridge bearings
You want the best value for money on the market, our essential wheels focus on what you get in the box for the best price. Our Superstar Premium Line wheels have all the bells and whistles which have to be included in the purchase price, due to customer request we are offering a cheaper option without these features to hit a lower price. Sure it would be nice to have premium SKF bearings fitted to everything but they cost a fortune, so we can slash prices by fitting standard quality bearings in line with the rest of the industry. Leader Sapim spokes and brass nipples, plus rims and hubs from reputable manufacturers, mean the best bang for your buck.
2 Year Warranty on materials and manufacturing faults
Crash Rebuild and Free Truing policy DOES NOT apply to Essential wheels.
We do not cover bearing failure as this is a wear and tear issue. Replacing of standard size bearings is an easy and cheap task, and part of standard maintenance
All Superstar wheels are supplied without rimtape or tubeless parts. We prefer to allow customers to fit their personal choice of tape/valves/sealant to suit their requirements.
All Superstar wheels are custom built to your specifications. For example if you choose BOOST adaptors it will be built on a BOOST hub and it is not possible to change to non-boost once built. As this product is custom built to your specifications we cannot accept returns/refunds/swaps as the build is bespoke to you.

Note: Weights are generated by weighing a randomly selected wheelset with freehub and adaptors fitted. Due to the manufacturing process components parts vary, so this value is to be taken as guide not a guarantee. Our values are not to be confused with "optimistic" theoretical weights some manufactures claim which are often hundreds of grams understated.
Our wheels are focused on durability and long life, not weight weenie gram chasing. Sure we could easily save 100g a wheelset by putting tiny thin section bearings which don't last in our hubs but that's not upto the quality we require. If you want crazy light and unusable products we cannot help sorry.
