Hello,

Can't seem to find any reviews for the 2014 Stinger 4s.

They seem really nicely priced compared to Zipps, Evne, Boras ...

Any opinions?

Rim is absolutely top level => aero, solid, stiff

Hubs... could be better => they need a bit more care/service than Campagnolo or Shimano

Stinger 4 rim with Campagnolo CULT or Shimano hubs would be heaven

A lot of discount on them, no brainer, they worth it

Sammy, you can get rims for custom builds. No discount on them, of course, so that defeats the purpose.

I heard it has become difficult to find the rim only because HED prefer to sell complete wheelset

Few years ago, Team Sky and a couple Katusha riders were riding HED standard wheelset so the hubs can't be that much of an issue

Have been using Stinger 4 for exactly 50 weeks now, approx. 8000km ongoing according to my strava stat on that wheelset. Great overall, paid full price brand new, 200$ cheaper than then 303FC.
Thought I was going to regret the purchase instead of the 303s, but after a year I think I made the right choice. My club mates swapped their 303s with mine, and majority agree that S4 is better both in braking and keeping rolling speed. Personally I only lubed the hubs but that's all I do. Never felt I needed to open the bearings.
