When you have such a world reknowned rider as Matt Priest involved in this project you can be sure that the product will be something special. Matt was Ride UK Magazine's 2011, 2012 and 2014 UK Trails Rider of the Year and also part of the winning Stay Strong team on the 2012 Ride to Glory tour.
Here's what Matt said about his Halo wheels in his 12 page interview in Ride UK Magazine's November 2012 issue (he also got the cover shot): "I really wanted everything to be right, it's my own quality control because I wouldn't put my name to anything that I wasn't totally into. The wheels have turned out sick and it's amazing to have a product that you're proud of, I mean I would go and buy the wheels anyway because they're so good".
