What the press is saying:


"Magnificently well finished, carefully fitted, very dynamic: the Asterion XCs are in line with all the brand's products, exceptional. Apart from the weight, they have all or almost all (very) luxurious wheels, for a price which places them in the mid-range segment. Add to that a policy of options and customization, and you have wheels that, without breaking the bank, will allow you to touch perfection. They are also to be seen as an upgrade , more than a “2nd pair”, because unless you have an absolutely exceptional first pair, it's a safe bet that they will never leave your bike.In any case, on our Spark, we still do not have put back the carbon wheels…”


Latest evolution of our Asterion XC aluminum rim: Lower and wider profile with increased asymmetry compared to the previous generation. Improves both comfort, grip and nervousness. Origin: Western Europe. Compatible tires with tube, Tubeless or Tubeless-Ready tires. "Hookless" and "anti-burp" profile for low sidewall exposure and perfect grip of tubeless tires at low pressure.


The next evolution of Hope Tech hubs. New design of springs and pawls, reduced friction and increased engagement points (108 instead of 44 for the PRO4). Available in 6-hole or Centerlock rotors and all types of freewheel bodies. Choice of colors.


Cold-forged stainless steel flat spokes: The strongest and most flexible spoke on the market at this weight level. Gives wheels that are light, responsive and extremely durable. Origin: France

Spoke heads:

Sapim Polyax double square nuts in anodized 7075 T6 aluminum with anti-friction treatment. The profile of Polyax spoke nipples acts as a ball joint which allows the nipple to better align in the direction of each spoke to reduce stress at the rim-spoke connection. The additional "double-square" indentation allows a higher tightening torque without compromising the strength of the nut while it allows part of the thread to work in compression for greater resistance to breakage. Assembly with specific brake lubricant to ensure excellent hold of the screwing without the nut seizing over time. All this contributes - in addition to the quality of assembly - to the excellent hold over time of our wheels.


Rim strips and ultra-light tubeless valves with removable cores installed.


All our assemblies are guaranteed for 2 years against any hidden defect. Our wheels also benefit from a lifetime crash replacement program.

Asterion Service:

All Asterion wheel assemblies benefit from the Asterion Service program which offers you the free loan of a wheel in the event of an incident with your equipment.


Binding of the spokes with nickel-plated steel wire soldered with tin-silver.
