After a solid year of riding contests, going on road trips, filming edits and even appearing on the very cover of this magazine, Matt Priest also made the recent step up to his own signature product range. The brand behind the idea was Halo rims, and with Matt’s input on design and development and Halo’s support and knowledge, the ‘Priest’ wheelsets were produced.
Now it is no surprise to hear that Matt has a few fans, as he once again took home the Ride UK Award for the UK Dirt Rider of the Year. Being voted for by you the readers, for this award is a huge honour, but being able to take it home two years in a row, is pretty special and was only matched in the Park category by Harry Main.
I bet it was a no-brainer for a brand like Halo to invest in a project like this with Matt, as with a strong following and large media presence, with Matt showing no signs of slowing down any time soon, these wheelsets/rims will without a doubt be spending little time on the store shelves and a long time on various bikes.

Thanks to Halo rims for supplying this full wheelset (RRP; £375) to one lucky reader.
