Introducing our UK made V6 Disc Hubs built our latest ISOTOPE All Mountain rim range. The new benchmark for performance at an industry leading price. No corners have been cut in making this wheelset from the Premium Belgium manufactured Sapim spokes, the hubset manufactured inhouse in our CNC factory in Lincoln, the ultra premium SKF Bike Specific Bearings and the latest in rim technology. Cheap Light Strong, you can have all three with Superstar Components Element wheels
ISOTOPE 29mm wide rims are the latest evolution of our cutting edge rim range designed specifically for modern wider and higher volume tyres. They use our Verve Design philosophy with a wider than traditional rim profile to modify the tyre contact patch and give better grip and lower rolling resistance making them perfect for running larger tyres or lower pressures for comfort with speed. Combined with the new asymmetric rim profile for equal spoke tensions on both sides giving stable, stiff and reliable builds every time. Glossy black anodising and subtle laser marking. Looks good and will last, no scrappy stickers flaking or peeling off after a few weeks.
At Superstar Components we always strive for better, faster, stronger. While the hubsets we imported from our original suppliers over the last ten years were OK, we still tweaked the designs over the years and introduced the highest quality bearings from SKF to make them stand out from the competition. But they just could not provide what we needed so we decided to bring all hub production inhouse. So after several years of designing, testing and huge investment in the highest quality CNC machines we are launching our own hubs, made with no compromises.
The V6 range of hubs are the perfect balance of strength, weight and performance for the latest disc equipped bikes. Designed with durability in mind, the oversize axle and large PCD flanges give better spoke angles than lesser hubsets for stiffer and stronger wheel builds. Easy change adaptors and huge 17mm rear axles for superior performance. 6 pawl high speed pickup design for lightning fast reactions, alternating sets of 3 give duarability and 54 engagments per rotation.
We have added in all the features we desired for the perfect hub. Custom seals, Custom bearings, oversize axles, oversize flanges, extra detailed machining all add upto the ultimate hubset. As we are producing these by the thousand we can offer market leading quality for a reasonable price, with long term spares backup direct from the manufacturer.
V6 Hubset Features:
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.
