Halo Freedom Disc 29er Wheelset

3/5 (2 Reviews)

Product Description

For the discerning Freerider, Halo Freedom Disc Auralite Nb-A special alloy rims mated to the high specification sealed bearing Halo Spin Doctor hubs.

Tough enough for all but the knarliest DH course, light and responsive enough for XC. 32 plain gauge Black spokes finish off these top flight all Black wheels.

Also available with White powdercoat rims.

Strengths:    Rims and spokes stayed true with no issue.

Weaknesses:    Freehub.

Bottom Line:   
Like the other reviewer, I only got 2 months of bi-weekly rides out of the rear wheel before the pawls broke. Generously that's 250 miles. Oh, and my shop is struggling to find a pawl rebuild kit. But, up until then they were great and reasonable price.

Strengths:    The rim. It is very strong, stiff, reasonably wide and still light enough. It also looks great, but this is a matter of taste, obviously.

Weaknesses:    Spin Doctor Pro hub failed after a couple of months only. The freewheel just gave in. This is the first hub that failed on me in such a short time under normal MTB use (less than 1000 miles)

Bottom Line:   
The hub is the main weakness. I will probably replace it with a Shimano hub to make the wheel last longer. The rim is the main selling point, I still love it.
