Hiper wheels
« on: August 29, 2018, 05:39:20 AM »
So I'm thinking about getting a set of hiper wheels. Looks like can still get the cf1's through atv galaxy. Hiper's site doesn't list them anymore. So my question would be what is the benefits of the tech 3's over the cf1's

The tech3s carry a longer warranty and are better suited for mx/gncc I have read. I have also read of oblonged mounting holes on the tech3. They are suppose to be stronger though.

The Tech 3's have a billet center, the portion that mounts to the hub. CF1 is straight carbon fiber, with metal inserts where the holes are.

I have dual bead-lock Tech 3 rears that have been phenomenal. They still have the 5lbs of pressure in them that I originally filled them up with 3 years ago.

I have fought tooth and nail with one of my CF1 fronts almost since the day I bought them. One leaks between the tire and the bead-lock ring. I just ordered new rings so we'll see if that fixes the problem. Also possible the cheap GBC tires I use have an imperfection that's causing the leak. I'll find out this weekend.

You can see the diffrence here:

I really hope I dont have issues with my cf1s. Both are such a good looking wheel.

Tbone howd you get that dent in your pipe?

It was like that when I bought it. I assume it's from someone's foot slipping off the kicker.

I would go with the Tech 3 on every corner if I had to do it again

Also: Highland Tire in PA has the best prices on Hipers, hands down.

Yea, seems like the Tech3's are a superior wheel. Can't really see a draw back from what I've read.

With that said, my CF1's don't leak a bit and none of the rivnuts have spun out.

I've never pursued Hiper's but curious if you want these for a sand setup Gene?  And if so, why?

I do realize the extra rotating weight kills power. But my weight kills more

I liked the look of mine. Heavy and two of them randomly leaked. They hold their value pretty good to I sold them for a good price.

They are heavier than aluminum beadlocks? Guess I always assumed the point of them was to be lighter.

Same here, but I'd prefer to not add any extra unneeded weight.  Though they look sweet!

they are not worth the price in my opinion.  DWT aluminum beadlocks are just fine.
