Bombshell Switch It wheelset review£249.99

Strong and versatile wheels

BikeRadar score4/5

These fat chrome-rim monsters look great, last well and handle most axle setups to boot. The Fat Daddy rim is 36mm wide, so 2.5in tyres feel secure however soft you run them, and you’ll be fine even if you run 3in Nokian Gazzaloddis.

The lack of eyelets for the 36 spokes hasn’t mattered in a year of hammering and despite occasional loose spokes they’re still running totally true.

The big front shell, solid flanges and heat treated chromoly rear axle mean no deviation or wallow, and the sealed bearings are running fine despite a winter of abuse.

They can be switched from quick-release to 20mm front or 12mm bolt-through rear in seconds, and there are loads of colour options – so the only potential issue is their weight.
