Our review

Highly impressive, keenly priced direct-buy wheels

Superstar deals direct to skip the shop segment of costs and deliver fantastic prices, but its wheelsets certainly aren’t cheap tat.

The Tactic rims use a deep, rounded profile and 32 Sapim Laser spokes for stiffness. The internal width will support the fattest 2.4in treads, and tyres blow up tubeless relatively easily if you tape the rims up and remain locked in place through tread-ripping corners.

Superstar offers free truing for life but even our oldest long-term sets have stayed impressively true and even.

Pick-up and weight are reasonable for the width, and a switch to SKF cartridge bearings should extend already decent service intervals substantially. They can be ordered online with any axle combo in black, blue or red for the same top-value price.
