If you’re looking for an economically priced wheelset that won’t break the bank but can stand up to some abuse, check out the Azonic Outlaw wheelset inside. Available in 135mm/150mm QR/20mm, these wheels will fit just about every bike out there out of the box.

The Azonic Outlaw wheelset isn’t expensive and is built quite strong. They’ve been recommended by lots of downhill and freeriders for good reason. We got a hold of some to see what they have to offer and its pretty impressive given their price tag. The rear freehub uses the pawl system in the hub to put the power down in the back. The wheels roll smoothly due in part to the sealed cartridge bearings inside the hubs.

The white rims were pretty flashy but you can get them in a black variant as well. The stickers weren’t laid on the best but that’s a small hiccup in this great deal.

The Azonic Outlaw wheelset uses Alex Supra D rims built to 36h hubs. The pawls in the rear hub could stand to be a little beefier to stand up to a bit more abuse. These rims aren’t too heavy (~600g), are solid, and should last quite awhile.

The wheelset includes sealed cartridge bearing disc hubs and a heavy-duty rim. All necessary parts are included to convert from thru-axle to QR. There are no additional adapters necessary to purchase. The rear stock axle included is 12mm x 135mm and is pretty hefty at 192g. Purchasing a lighter axle can save a quick 100g in the axle alone. You can also purchase a step down axle from Azonic if you’re running 10mm dropouts and still want the benefits of a solid thru-axle.

If you’re balling on a budget and need a wheelset that is less than $300, the Azonic Outlaw wheelset is hard to beat. They lack the frills of some more expensive wheels but for the price it’s pretty hard to beat what you get out of the Azonic’s. If you’re looking for a set, you can get some directly from JensonUSA for a killer price, or Azonic (1-800-326-6325) (ask for Jose). Additionally any good bike shop can order them from BTI.
