Lún (Winspace) HYPER Wheels Review: Is the Hype Justified?

Lún (Winspace) HYPER review: Lún HYPER 50mm disc brake in front of a brick wall

This is my Lún HYPER wheels review. They are better known as Winspace HYPER and belong to the best Chinese carbon wheels you can buy.

I’ve seen a lot of video reviews on YouTube that sounded too good to be true. So I decided to buy them and make up my own opinion.

I tested them in my modest workshop, and in this review, I compare them with other Chinese wheels.

Can’t wait to see the results? Let’s dive in!

NOTE: As soon as it gets warmer, I plan to do an outside speed comparison test and update this review.

Main Features & Specs

I bought Lún HYPER 50mm disc brake option. This is one of the most popular rim depths for most roadies because it’s suitable for flats, and hilly terrain, and it’s not too heavy for climbs.

Naturally, HYPERs are available in multiple rim depths (38, 50, and 65mm) and also for rim brakes.

First Impressions and Unboxing

I ordered HYPERs on the 19th of January, and they arrived about two and a half weeks later, on the 7th of February, at my doorstep. Pretty impressive considering the fact it was during the Chinese New Year.

Unlike YOELEO SAT PRO wheels, HYPERs came in a nice, branded, black box.

There was no damage to it except one corner that was a little bit crumpled, but this is nothing serious.

This was the “most serious” damage to the box – no problem at all

I like it when a brand pays attention to details. Even the unboxing itself is part of the product experience. This is exactly what Apple does.

The following detail impressed me the most. The text “YOU JUST GOT FASTER” gives you a positive affirmation that you’ve made a good investment in your equipment.

This is what I call a nice unboxing experience

But they didn’t stop here. The following text on the bottom part of the box is also pretty clever (and funny).

The wheels were protected against each other with protectors and cardboard to avoid damage.

The packing also included a nice box with spare spokes and valve extenders.

In-House Tests

I conducted the following tests before I started riding the wheels.

Lateral and Radial Trueness

I had pretty high expectations from HYPERs because of all the hype around them. However, they were not as well trued as YOELEO SAT PROs or Elitewheels DRIVE. I will add a video below once I publish my video review.

This applies to both lateral and radial trueness. My spokes tension test provided the answer to why they were not 100% true.

Spoke Tension

The spoke tension consistency was fine, but not perfect. The left side of the front wheel had one of the spokes a little bit off, but overall, it was nothing serious.

The same applied to the rear wheel. All spokes were within the 5% tolerance.

So the overall consistency was not as good as on YOELEO SAT PROs, but it still met pretty high standards.

Rim Centering (Dishing)

Based on the previous results, I didn’t expect the hub will be off-center. The use of the dishing tool proved this assumption. There was only a tiny gap on both wheels.

Difficulty to Put the Tire On

I also tested how difficult it is to put a tire on compared to other Chinese wheelsets.

Putting my Tufo Comtura 4 TR 28mm tubeless tires was more difficult than on YOELEO SAT PROs or Elitewheels DRIVE, but less difficult than on Farsports Ventoux S. Still, I had to use tire levers.

However, I was able to inflate them easily with a compressor. I am sure the pre-installed rim tape helped. By the way, I didn’t need to use a tire sealant or soapy water for seating them.

The HYPER wheels were the best in terms of installing tubeless tires from all wheelsets I tested so far.

The table below shows all wheels I tested (more wheels coming soon).

Riding Experience

I’ve been using HYPERs for about 500 km (310 miles) now and in this section, I share my riding experience.

One of my first observations is their stiffness. They are very stiff. In fact, they are a little bit too stiff for rougher roads or cobblestones. On the other hand, the Farsports Ventoux S feel even stiffer. But it’s difficult to put this in numbers.

I sometimes need to compensate for their stiffness with lower tire pressure. But once I ride on smooth tarmac or climbs, this stiffness comes in handy. The energy I put into pedals is transferred into the forward movement. I am sure that heavier riders will appreciate it too.

HYPER wheels are also about 200g lighter than YOELEO SAT PRO. This means they don’t have as big momentum and are more suitable for climbing and accelerations. However, if I was going for a trip to the Alps, I would rather bring lighter wheels like Elitewheels DRIVE to save some energy.

HYPER’s crosswind stability is not the best. Expect you will need to be careful in strong crosswinds. I rode in 35 kph (21.75 mph) crosswinds and with the 50mm deep rims, it was a challenge to keep a straight line.

The stability is not as good as the stability of YOELEOs. Surprisingly, the Elitewheels DRIVE, which are about 150g lighter, felt more stable. But they have 0.5mm shallower rims. So it is hard to say if the difference was caused by the rim depth or the wheel design. I would say both.

I think that Lún HYPER sit in the sweet spot weight. They are not too light to lack stability and not too heavy to be unresponsive.

However, one of the things I like the most about them is their design. They turn heads. I got many compliments on their finish. So, if this is something you care about, I can assure you you will stand out from the crowd.

Lún (Winspace) HYPER Alternatives

Lún HYPER belong to the most well-known Chinese carbon wheels. However, there are some other high-quality alternatives you may consider.

  • Farsports Ventoux S are more expensive than HYPERs and not UCI approved. But they meet ISO 4210 quality standards and weigh about 1380g (45mm option). Use the ‘cyclistshub100‘ discount code at www.farsports.com on the checkout page to get 100 USD off your purchase or read this in-depth Farsports Ventoux S review.
  • Elitewheels DRIVE are more affordable than HYPERs and also much lighter (they weigh only 1280g in the 45mm option). They have in-house designed hubs, carbon spokes, and a unique rim finish. Use the ‘cyclistshub‘ discount code at www.elite-wheels.com on the checkout page to get 10% off your purchase or read this in-depth Elitewheels DRIVE review.
  • YOELEO SAT PRO are the most affordable of these three. They come with DT Swiss 350 hubs and Sapim CX-Ray spokes. They are very stable in crosswinds thanks to their higher weight. Read this in-depth YOELEO SAT PRO review.

Lún (Winspace) Wheels FAQ


My Verdict

With HYPER wheels, you can’t go wrong. They passed all my in-house testing, although their truing could be done a little bit better.

I like the attention to detail Lún put into their merchandising. The unboxing experience was the “most premium” of all the Chinese wheelsets I bought.

The weight and design of the HYPERs ensure decent stability in crosswinds while maintaining responsivity when accelerating.

They are pretty stiff, so they are not very suitable for harsh roads unless you compensate for their stiffness with lower tire pressure.

On the other hand, if you are a heavier rider or your local roads are smooth, you will appreciate how efficiently they transfer your energy into the forward movement.

A few riders complained about creaking sounds, but I didn’t experience this issue. Hubs also didn’t require any regreasing. It seems Lún addressed these issues based on customers’ feedback.

Due to the high popularity HYPERs, I expect their price will go up in the future. If you consider them, I recommend buying them rather sooner than later. You can take advantage of my 10% discount and support my website.
