    Just received a set of these with 27.5 Crest rims. First impressions are good. Both wheels straight & true with tight spokes, however a couple of spoke blades were twisted 90 degrees on the rear. This was easily rectified but a quick QC check by Superstar should have picked this up. On the scales, front weighs an impressive 660g. Rear 840g which is a tad heavy for such a build spec. The ext

    Excellent wheelset, very impressed with the quality. Instant pick up from the free hub (plus it sounds like an angry wasp is chasing you!). Set up tubeless first time with schwalbe tyres, 2.35 Magic Mary and Hans Dampf look huge on the 30mm wide rim (it is 35mm external). Lots more grip on offer! Wheels arrived with even tension and run true, well packaged. Rim decals can't be removed if you we
