Introducing our UK made V6 Disc Hubs built on Stans Grail MK3 ride wide tubeless ready rims. 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. Built in ultra durable 32 spoke 3 cross lacing, this is perfect for smashing through the gnarliest CX course out there. Premium rims built up on a high end UK made hubs, for the same price as your regular asia import madeup brand wheelset...
Rims:

ZTR Grail MK3 Disc Rim.  From our much copied wider rim design to our ground-breaking Bead Socket Technology rim profile, we've made a habit of thinking outside the box-section when it comes to rim design. Our new Grail continues the NoTubes tradition of function-first innovation. Countless hours spent working with our professional road racers and cyclocross team led us to create what just might be the ultimate disc-specific rim for road, 'cross and gravel. At just over 24mm wide and featuring our deepest profile (24.5mm), the Grail is the most aerodynamic rim we've ever made. Though it rivals much deeper designs in the wind tunnel, we designed the Grail to be much more than just fast in a straight line. Our variable wall thickness spoke bed maximizes durability and ensures consistent spoke tension while keeping weight low. Its internal rim channel and true BST sidewalls combine to lend additional strength and create a tire profile that's simply faster. Put to the test in some of the harshest racing conditions, the Grail has proven it has what it takes to accelerate quicker and roll faster than the competition. The Grail redefines tubeless road and cyclocross performance.

Hubs:
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.

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.

Wheelset Weights:

Pair g

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.
