Heavy, but very versatile, strong and good value all-rounder

Halo’s Freedom Disc wheels aren’t light but you get a lot of strength, versatility and value in return.

The deep section 28mm wide rim is impressively stiff and strong and will handle pretty big (2.3-2.4in) tyres without them getting undercut and unstable in corners. The stiffness does mean they’re more pinch-prone at lower pressures though, so keep them pumped.

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 too.
