BikeRadar put the Atomik Carbon CHUBBY 43 through the ringer, giving it a solid four-star rating, calling them “stiff, well damped 27.5+ wheels with an interesting ride.”

“The bottom line for the Atomik Cubby 43 wheelset with Onyx hubs is they’re seriously capably tough. They felt as though they could take on lift-served thrashings and be fine. 

The other thing of note is how they completely changed the bikes they were on. I rode them on both a 160mm travel full-suspension bike and a trail-oriented hardtail and both bikes were transformed. They felt like different machines and made me re-think how I should be riding certain sections of trail. 

Lastly, the ride was intriguing. The calmness and careless ease at which they propelled me down the trail was super interesting to me.  

Buy if: You’re a strong, hard-riding ripper who wants a burly 27.5+ wheelset that eliminates all the buzz and vibration” – BikeRadar
