Halo Vapour wheels - in brief £319.98

Tough tubeless-ready trail wheelset

BikeRadar score 4/5

Despite their very reasonable price, the Vapour wheels are relatively light and quick to accelerate. The Supadrive rear hub has an ultra fine 120-click freehub, so pickup is as instant as you’ll get. Despite their light weight, flex is palatable for the category. 

It occasionally strayed off line when we were really carving hard or getting pushed around by random rocks, but it was never enough to lose the front end totally. They haven’t dinged or warped yet either.  

The 26mm-wide rim supports decent sized tyres and it’s hooked ready to run tubeless. Tape, valves or rear axle convertors aren’t included and the current adaptors are being redesigned, so it’s worth waiting for the update. Halo hubs have always been very reliable otherwise, though.
