User Review: Sun-Ringle Charger Pro Wheelset

Overall Rating: 5 of 5
Value Rating: 5 of 5

Bottom Line:
I’ve put close to 300 miles on this wheelset and have not had any problems. I’ve mounted Intense System 4, Geax TNT Saguaros and Kenda Nevegal UST tires. The Geax and Kendas are tubeless. I tried using my floor pump but i was unable to seat the tires so I ended up using an air compressor. They provide a nice wide footprint and I haven’t had a problem with “burping”. The wheels have seen the dusty and sandy trails of So Cal and a hard winter in the Pacific Northwest and the hubs are still running smooth as ever. This is my first set of tubeless and couldn’t be happier. No complaints.

Strengths:
Price. Adaptability (9mm qr, 15 and 20mm through axle, rear through). Bead Socket Technology. Tubeless compatible (came with everything needed). Relatively inexpensive for what you get.

Weaknesses:
Stickers.

Bottom Line:
I been using these exclusively for over 8 months and I love them. They have been banged on rocks and had mud in them with no issues. I use these on downhill as well and I feel secure even though I know I should be on something with a larger platform like the Mallets by CB. For someone new to clipless these are great since they are very easy to unclip from. There is an adjustment for the tightness on the tension release. I had to increase the tension some due to my feet unclipping from hard landings and jumping, but these aren’t exactly made for that anyway. For the price and for someone who does XC riding these are perfect.

Strengths:
Durable, affordable and low maintenance.

Weaknesses:
None.

Favorite Trail:
Headley Ridge
