Our favourite all-mountain/downhill/freeride wheels, the adapatability, legendary strength and upgraded reliability of these wheels shines through.

BMX meets MTB in Ison's super heavy-duty jump/DH/Freeride wheels. The super wide 36mm rim will be able to take any size tyre around and will square off anything under 2.5in for maximum security and stability.

The double wall, double eyelet rims will shrug off pretty much any fall going as well, so it's no wonder that kit wrecking legends such as Chris Smith and Josh Bender are riding Halo now. Thirty-six spokes string up the front, while the rear gets a woven wall of 48 straight gauge wires to spread stress and provide failsafe back up.

The Spin Doctor hubs are switchable from QR to 20mm through-axle at the front (but watch you don't lose the adaptors in transit) and QR, Saint, 10 or 14mm bolted axles at the back. The bearings are well sealed and have lasted well, while a new grease port extends freehub life, and there is also a 150mm rear width option available.

A gold anodised option joins black ano and white powder coat in both 26in or 24in sizes.
