What can I say about these wheels, after looking at wheelsets for weeks and pricing up wheels three times the price of these I thought I would take a punt on these as money was tight at the time, and in all honesty these wheels are the best if not better than what I have ridden in the past. I live in the Lake District and these have been hammered on super rocky trails and are still running perfect
Second set of these I have bought. Colour Matched with all the other Orange Superstar bits I have on this bike.
This set are with Shimano Brakes and the other set with Avids. Both work really well.
Superb service too. ordered on Bank Holiday Bombay. Delivered on the Wednesday! Awesome.
Purchased this wheelset recently and I'm really pleased I did. Great lightweight and stiff combo which surpass my original set of PR2's that Giant supplied. The delivery and communication from SC was brilliant and I had them within 36 hours of confirmation. Only had a couple of test rides so far but the amazing weight saving is making hills enjoyable...almost!
Liked the large platform and low profile. But the smooth pedals totally rely on long or extra long pins. Swapped back to OEM serrated pedals with short pins after a botched jump led to shin perforation.
Also one stiff bush, probably not significant but irritating.
Given their cost and performance these are superb value.
The pedal body is a fairly heavy duty plastic and feels firm under foot. The pins are held in via nuts which, mating neatly with the pedal body, offer excellent grip.
I have a set of these and the nano-x's and grip wise they are very similar.
Used primarily on a MTB trails, i've had no problems with them.
