Using an asymmetric design we have equalised spoke tensions and built a package that leaves descents in its wake, whilst cutting down weight where it isn’t needed for energy sapping climbs.
To compensate for the differences in wall length and strength of an asymmetric design, the wall thicknesses have been proportioned to balance out impact forces equally. The Vortex offers offset wheel benefits, without compromise.
Medium of Contruction
Using specially sourced 6061 T-10 heat treated Aluminium alloy, the Vortex is built from a material that has high tolerance for impact forces, offers light weights and is more sustainable than Carbon Fibre counterparts.
Turning Up the Volume
With a generous 33mm internal width, Vortex wheels increase tyre volume and maximise the available grip on offer with tubeless compatibility. Lower pressure, more grip.
the centre of the vortex
At the core of our Vortex wheels are our new and improved instantaneous 120 point pick up MT Supadrive and MT Front hubs, with sealed bearings, timeless Halo appearance and super wide spaced flanges for increased stiffness and durability.
The MT hub range is modular and current. Available in Boost and traditional fitments with HG or XD freehubs, Vortex wheels fit almost all applications of modern Enduro bikes. Boost Adaptor kits and Torque Cap Adaptors are available separately to offer updatable fitment and tunability.
A drive system to rely on
With our latest version of the MT Supadrive hub we have increased stiffness and reduced flex with a heat treated, hollow Cro-Mo Steel axle for maximum power transfer.
Utilising a wedge pawl mechanism the Supadrive system withstands incredible torque loads. Featuring 12 micro teeth per pawl, drive is transferred efficiently through a dramatically increased surface area.
- 1 Wedge pawl system to withstand large torque loads
- 2 HG and XD freehub fitments
- 3 3 degree freehub engagement
- 4 120 Point pick up
- 5 Boost upgradeable
- 6 Wide spaced flanges for increased wheel strength
- 7 Adaptable axle end cones
- 8 Standard and Boost fitments
Make it yours
Out of the box the Vortex comes in our unmistakable Stealth, double anodised finish. With six coloured sticker packs available separately the Vortex is customisable to suit your style.
A tough, wide, and heay duty wheelset for riders looking for something that will last at a reasonable price
It’s the way we’ve been hitting everything we can at full throttle, day in, day out since we got them, without a single issue, even running teen tyre pressures, that makes these great hardcore wheels"
"The price is good too, considering how long they’re likely to last
What do I want from a wheelset? Mainly I want them to stay true, deal with frequent tyre changes without being a pain, hold air, not dent easily and not get rumbly bearings too soon. These Vortex have done that.
At four hundred quid they are also a total bargain.
Halo’s Vortex Wheelset is big, wide, tough and noisy
Under power the 120 point hub engagement basically feels instantaneous, giving you the ability to do single cranks or partial cranks through tricky sections.
I’m going to continue running them on my test bikes for the foreseeable future.
