Its hard to ever imagine that the SUPERSTAR Rim could ever be improved upon, but yep that's right, that's what TRAMPA has gone n done, improved on perfection & the new & Super Sexy MEGASTAR Rims are a PRO version of the already amazing SUPERSTAR Rim! WoW!
TRAMPA's 5 spoke MEGASTAR RIMs have been created for those who insist on fitting only 'the Very Best of Equipment'. They are a technically designed, super-strengthened, masterpiece's of circular lushness! They have been Precision CNC milled from a solid block of Aluminum, they were never going to be cheap to make or sell but not only will these precision made MEGASTAR rims improve your ride, but OMG they are so FXXXXN sexy you just have to have them once you have seen them!
The MEGASTAR HUB will fit to ANY of the Tyres in the TRAMPA product Range from 5 Inch Gummies Tyres, 6.5 Inch URBAN Treads, 7 Inch Inline Tyres & ANY of the 8 inch Tyre options TRAMPA offers. The MEGASTAR Hub is so strong it handles the highest inflation pressures of any small wheel on the market.... Increasing Inflation rates will increase maximum roll speed capabilities, making them the perfect option for the insane among us!
TRAMPA Spokes made from Extruded 6061 Aluminum which has been T6 Heat treated (Super Strength Aero-grade quality) & comes in a nice range of colours to satisfy your taste. The MEGASTAR's hub construction is held together by using 'Socket capped' M4 x 40mm A4 (Marine Grade) Stainless Steel Nuts & Bolts.
TRAMPA's M4 x 40mm Socket Capped Bolt is made using A4 Marine Grade Stainless Steel. This very special Bolt is specifically made for TRAMPA & is used to assemble the TRAMPA SUPERSTAR HUBS. The socket capped head of the Bolt screws neatly though the Spokes & into the fixing point in the Rim of the SUPERSTAR HUB eventually screwing into the M4 nut on the other side easly.
Using Marine Grade Stainless Steel, means these Bolts will never rust on you! They can cope with the most harsh of weather conditions & they laugh in the face of sandy/salty beaches or muddy freeride tracks, which do turn other manufacturers Nuts & Bolts into corrosive rusting wrecks! As well as being Non Corrosive all of the TRAMPA Bolts are diped in BLUE THREAD LOCKING PASTE to ensure an extra strong secure fix between the Nut & the Bolt.
USED FOR CONNECTING:
Made from A4 Marine Grade Stainless Steel, all of the nuts, bolts & screws used in a TRAMPA board have proven to be up to the challenge of holding everything together. Using Marine Grade Stainless Steel also means these Bolts will never rust on you! They can cope with the harshest of weather conditions & will laugh in the face of sandy/salty beaches or muddy freeride tracks - which can turn other manufacturers’ nuts & bolts into corroded rusting wrecks!
Wherever possible, we dip all our bolts into BLUE THREAD LOCKING PASTE, to ensure an extra strong & secure fix between the nuts & bolts.
Introducing TRAMPA's M4 (4mm Shaft) A4 Marine Grade Stainless steel Nylock Nut. This Nylock Nut will fit to all M4 Bolts regardless of their length. This A4 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Nut will never rust on you! It is fitted with the world renowned NYLOCK System (Nylock is a nylon locking system where Nylon is pasted into the threads of the nut so that when the bolt is tightened into the nut the nylon grabs the thread of the bolt holding it locking it in the thread ensuring things do not vibrate loose or fall off when being ridden on rough terrain like that which a Mountain or Kiteboard endures. The NYLOCK thread locking security System is fitted as standard to all TRAMPA Nuts.
This Nut is used to fix to tighten to the M4 Socket Capped Bolts that hold the HYPA & SUPERSTAR hubs together. To fit the nuts M4 use an 8mm spanner or 8mm Ratchet Socket to turn the Nut onto the Bolt whilst holding the bolt with a 3mm Allen Key. Always ensure your Nuts & Bolts are tight before you ride!
'OMG! WTF's them?? Are they metal Superstar Rims' i hear you say?? As-if!! No-Way!! Un-Real!! & proudly introducing the TRAMPA's 8 inch MEGASTAR Rims :-)
Its hard to ever imagine that TRAMPA's SUPERSTAR Rim could ever be improved upon, but yep that's right, that's what we have gone n done, improved on perfection! So the Super Sexy 8 inch MEGASTAR Rims are a PRO version of the already amazing SUPERSTAR Rim! MEGASTARS are pricey yeah, but WoW, they are lush :-)
CNC Milled from a solid block of BILLET ALUMINUM, Anodised BLACK or POLISHED & Laser logo's for a Pimp appearance, all of the different MEGASTAR Rims that we offer fit the regular SUPERSTAR SPOKES, so if you already have SUPERSTAR Rims & wish to upgrade to MEGASTAR Rims, all you need to do is purchase the Rims to make the swap...
MEGASTAR Rims have extra bolt holes! This is done partly for aesthetics but mostly for wheel balancing reasons... When any of the small plastic rims or hubs are fitted with a tyre / inner tube using a valve for inflation, the valve itself weighs approx 6 grams. This is a substantial amount of weight on such a small wheel, consequently when the wheel is spinning this weight throws the wheel out of balance, at high speed, especially when riding on smooth surfaces it can be quite noticeable...
Its been an ongoing problem for speed freaks since the dawn of mountainboarding, but now we have a solution to the problem!! Having the extra bolt holes allows us you screw in 2x extra M4x18mm Socket capped Bolts, a similar weight to the Valve, into an area that's directly located opposite to the valve, which in turn acts as a counter balance preventing the un-even weight, allowing a smoother rotation, ultimately a faster spin rate making the MEGASTAR Rims perfect for high speeds!
TRAMPA's 8 inch MEGASTAR Rims are Available in 2 different options, CENTER-SET Bearing Position, which is a direct metal replacement of the original Plastic injection SUPERSTAR rim (effectively pimping your ride with Valve balance facility) & also in the very exciting OFF-SET Bearing Position.....
Fitting the OFF-SET Bearing position MEGASTAR Hubs will move the wheels further away from your feet & widen your wheel boards base, perfect for large people & small Boards. Initially designed in conjunction with the smaller Truck Models (12-Fifties & Mini Spring Trucks) to give space for bigger things, with the additional support of a 6mm Axle Spacer on the 9.525mm Axle, fitted before the wheel slips on, you will gain quite a bit extra Wheel base, which in turn will give extra room to fit the larger 8 Inch Tyres, turning your TRAMPA CARVE or ORRSOME Board into more of a Mini Mountainboard with a whole heap of 8 inch tire options available to you, transforming your URABN ride into an off-roader!!
With some addition trickery of inserting the OFF-SET Spoke Support Spacer into the assembly of the Deep Dish (Off-Set) 8 Inch MEGASTAR Rim, it is now possible to firstly ride with 9.525mm Ceramic bearings & secondly to Off-Set your wheel position even further out than fitting just the Off-Set MEGASTAR wheels alone. When fitting the two parts (Off-set MEGASTAR Rims & OFF-Set Spoke Support Spacer) you will be increasing the wheel base on the smaller Truck systems (12-Fifties & Mini Spring Trucks) by approx 1 inch, allowing plenty of room for things to fit such as 8 inch tyres (without clashing with your toes & Twin 160kv motors!! :-)
TRAMPA's 5 spoke MEGASTAR RIMs have been in the pipeline of dreams for a very long time... but its only been in the time of the Electric side of riding has developed that products like these have really ever created for those who insist on fitting only 'the Very Best of Equipment'.

They have been Precision CNC milled from a solid block of Aluminum, they are never going to be cheap to make or sell but not only will these precision made MEGASTAR rims improve the smoothness of your ride, but OMG they are so FXXXXN sexy you just have to have them once you have seen them!!
Both the Center Set & Off-set 8 inch MEGASTAR HUB will fit to ANY of the Tyres in the TRAMPA product Range up to 9 inches in Diameter. This includes the 5 Inch Gummies Tyres, 6.5 Inch URBAN Treads, 7 Inch Inline Tyres & ANY of the 8 inch Tyre options TRAMPA offers. The 8 Inch MEGASTAR Hub is so strong it handles the highest inflation pressures of any small wheel on the market.... Increasing Inflation rates will ultimately increase maximum roll speed capabilities, making them the perfect option for the insane among us!
TRAMPA Spokes made from Extruded 6061 Aluminum which has been T6 Heat treated (Super Strength Aero-grade quality) & comes in a nice range of colours to satisfy your taste. The MEGASTAR's hub construction is held together by using 'Socket capped' M4 x 40mm A4 (Marine Grade) Stainless Steel Nuts & Bolts & will never rust on you!

I hear TRAMPA Ceramic Bearings are on the way to fit the 12mm axle soon... Oh WoW!
It is possible to fit all of the Bearing sizes TRAMPA offers into the assembly of the 8 Inch MEGASTAR Rims. As Standard the Superstar / Megastar spokes accept the 12mm Axle Mountainboard bearings, These 12mm bearings can be fitted with Bearing Reducer Sleeves which will alow the wheel to fit to 9.525mm Axles, where as if you insert the Special Spoke Support Spacer into the assembly of the hub, you can fit to 9.525mm or 8mm Longboard Axles where hundreds of top quality bearing options are available for you to choose from...
TRAMPA SPOKES fit all SUPERSTAR & MEGASTAR Hubs. TRAMPA's Spokes are produced using the finest 6061 'Aero-Grade' Aluminum, which to maximise strength & performance are produced with the use of an Extrusion Die, which means TRAMPA spokes are made in one continuous piece before being sliced like bread to the required thickness. Before being sliced the extruded profile is T6 Heat Treated making the resulting Alloy extremely strong.
Once sliced, the Raw Spokes are bead polished which not only gives a top quality finish but also removes all & any sharp edges, before then being sent away to CNC machine to precisely mill out the 28mm O.D. bearing housing. Finally the spokes are sent to the Anodisers to have the relevant striking colours added for top surface protection.
This is the TRAMPA SUPERSTAR Spoke Support Spacer. It is used to gain extra strength for the SUPERSTAR wheel design by adding support to the Aluminum Spokes when the wheel is being used under high inflated pressures...
Precision injection moulded, using original DuPont materials, this Spacer provides essential support for the Spokes in the Superstar hubs. There is a Deep Shelf on the Rim of the Spacer which pushes into the internal side of the Spoke, positioning the Spacer/spoke perfectly for assembly. The thick plastic ensures a very strong support platform maximising Bearing support & spin rate always....
Ensure all your nuts & bolts are tight before riding!!
