Halo Wheels say they have the answer for mountain bikers on a budget, today launching a 27.5" trail wheelset that is decently wide for just £240. The Ridge Line wheels look bang up to date and low on price too.
Ridge Line Wheels
Halo say's the Ridge Line wheelset fills a gap in their range, aimed at riders looking to maximise time on the trail and minimise expense.
The Ridge Line wheels are built around their RL hubs which use a smooth 5 pawl 30 click engagement drive, a cro-mo axle and freehub as well as sealed bearings, which they say delivers great performance and compatibility.
The wheels are 100% hand built, supplied pre-taped and are tubeless ready from the box. The 27.5" trail wheelset offers Boost and non-Boost bolt through fitments and a 30mm internal width, all for under £240.00. For reference, a boost wheelset weighs 2.155g.
To complement the range of tubeless compatible wheels, Halo also now offer a complete package of tubeless tape, valves and Fibre-Tech Tubeless Sealant.
Fibre-Tech Tubeless Sealant uses a synthetic latex base formula and is non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-allergenic and lasts up to six months. Halo says Coupled with our revolutionary high density micro fibre technology ‘Fibre Tech’, holes up to 6mm are sealed instantly. It's also made in our home country, England. Unlike some other sealants on the market, Fibre-Tech sealant does not collect in a ball when dry. Simply top up and keep on riding. "
The sealant is available in a handy 250ml direct application bottle and a workshop sized 5L bottle with injector pump.
The tubeless valves offer a built in core removal tool which can be used on the trail for those nightmare trailside fixes with each set of valves also coming with a tool box core removal tool. Valves are available in multiple lengths. Tape wide Halo says their tape is highly adhesive, with slightly elastic properties to conform to the rim bed. Available in many widths and two package sizes- singular wheelset rolls and workshop 50m rolls.
