First things first: The new Charger Comp wheels are phenomenal, and they’re a steal.
Available in 29er, the rims are wide and tires mount easily. They’re tubeless and hold air quickly and easily; we had no leakage issues during the test period, and we used just one small tube of sealant per tire during the initial install…that’s it. We also tested them with tubes. And by tested, we mean totally abused.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent! Great bang for your buck.
These wheels really are a steal, especially at sale price.
For starters, they are NOT the wheels pictured here on the website! To be clear, what you will get is the Charger Comp wheelset as per the Sun Ringle website:
27mm rim, Stans BST. Stans tape already installed, universal tubless valves and 2 x 2oz bottles of stans sealant included in the box.Also in the box are all the axle adaptors you'll ever need and some very nice cro-mo Q/R's.
Wheels are 28 spokes, J bend, wheelsmith spokes, not 32 as advertised. Hubs are perhaps not quite as nice as pictured (def a steel freehub body) but bearings seems good quality and spin up nicely.
Wheels are very true, light (especially for the price - under 3kg with rotors (Avid HS1) and Q/R skewers). Running tubless for the first time, dead simple (with a tubless ready tyre).
Buy 'em, recommended without hesitiation!
