HUNT Race XC Wide MTB 29" Wheelset
Hunt Race XC Wide MTB Wheelset
Hunt Race XC Wide MTB Wheelset
<h1>Rims</h1><i>The Race XC Wide rim strikes the perfect balance between durability and performance making sure every ride is better than the last. The 6069 T6 alloy (welded) rim features a 24mm internal width to provide support during hard cornering or when throttling through techy sections. Optimized for 2.0"-2.3" tyres. It may be light but the Race XC Wide won't hold you back.</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>Mountain bikers aren't concerned about weight, right? Nope! Whether you're doing a back-country epic or pedalling between stages, we have paid attention to weight to suit the type of riding they will be subjected too. For example, using the highest quality Pillar triple butted spokes with PSR (Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement) has allowed us to not only create a stronger wheel with a higher spoke count, but one which does not add a weight penalty.</i>
<h1>New center lock option</h1><i>We now offer the Race XC Wide Wheelset with a center lock hub. Select the center lock option when choosing your wheel size.</i>
<h1>Front Hub</h1><i>Suited to match the needs of the modern trail bike rider. Featuring durable bearings and 7075-T6 series alloy axles to increase stiffness. These hubs have been selected based on their ability to perform on the most aggressive trails.</i>
<h1>Freehub Body</h1><i>Durability is a theme for HUNT as time and money you spend fixing is time and money you cannot spend riding or upgrading your bikes. As a result, we've developed the <em>H_CERAMIK</em> coating to provide excellent durability and protect against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.</i>
<h1>Spokes</h1><i>We have chosen top of the line, straight pull Pillar Spokes for excellent torsional strength and power transfer. Not only are these spokes extremely lightweight, they are also able to provide a greater degree of elasticity when put under increased stress. The Pillar Spoke Reinforcement (PSR) puts more material at the spoke head to prevent failure in this stress area.</i>
<h1>Rim Bed</h1><i>Like all of our wheels, the Hunt MTB line-up is designed to be used as a tubeless system. Featuring a H-Lock rim bead with 'up-kicks' to the shoulders of the rim bed secures your tyre when seated. This prevents side-to-side movement reducing the chance of burping your tyre. It creates a great rim-well seal for first installation and easy sealing of tubeless tyres. Still haven't made the switch? All our wheels are tube compatible as well.</i>
<h1>Made for how and where you ride</h1><i>Enhanced to perfectly compliment your riding, the Race XC Wide is for those rides which you don't want to end.</i>
<h1>Tubeless Tyres Fitted</h1><i>Gain the most out of your riding with a set of tubeless Schwalbe Tyres fitted and set up tubeless with sealant ready to roll straight out of the box.</i>
<h1>Dream Build</h1><i>Isla Short's Orbea Oiz Team Edition with Hunt Race XC Wides</i>
<h1>In the Box</h1><ul><li>Black Shield PET high tensile strength tubeless tape fitted to wheels.</li><li>Freehub fitted</li><li>Tubeless Valves</li><li>Spare of each spoke plus nipples</li><li>Quality control card signed by your wheel builder</li></ul>

HUNT Race XC Wide MTB 29" Wheelset

29" | 24 Wide Int. | 1517g

Built for the demands of modern technical cross country racing.

29" | 24 Wide Int | 1517g

The Purpose

Building on everything we learnt with the XC Wide; the Race version takes things even further. Saving nearly 150g whilst not sacrificing any strength, this is the perfect choice for when you're attacking both the ups, and downs, at race pace.

With 24mm internal 6069-T6 alloy (+69% tensile strength vs 6061-T6) rims they are no flexy featherweights- built to handle the demands of today’s rocky and rooty XC courses or be fitted to the new breed of long-legged “downcountry” bikes.

With 5° RapidEngage Hubs and excellent torsional strength from Pillar's PSR Straight Pull Spokes, they'll make every pedal stroke count when it's needed most.

      Schwalbe Hans Dampf Snake Skin Tubeless Tyres

      Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.35" Snake Skin Front / Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.25" Snake Skin Rear

      The Nobby Nic might just be one of the most versatile tyres out there. It has been seen everywhere from the pinnacle of the EWS and won’t be out of place at your local xc race. We love this high volume, predictable tyre for most of our pedal orientated rides and have even found it fitted to our trail bikes when we hear the smoother trails calling for a faster option. It rolls well, has great traction/grip, is predictable in the corners and might just be the goldilocks for your tyre needs. If you can tell we are a fan of this tyre, then you’d be right.

      Choose this tyre combo for your XCWide wheels. It’s a great option if you want an all-round option for your xc or trail bike. We love this tyre when the trails are demand a more pedal friendly option but don’t give up on the descents.

        PRODUCT QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

        • HUNT Race XC Wide MTB Wheelset looking at buying a set of these and can see the centre lock have a considerable wait time. my question is, i currently have centre lock wheelset on my bike set up and these will be spare set of wheels where i will change between dependent on race conditions. if i get the 6 bolt option will the spacing be the same as center lock allowing me to swap out wheels without adjusting the brake calipers every time? Many Thanks Simon

          Ok so the spacing will be slightly different between the centre lock & 6 bolt rotors on this wheelset, however it will most likely be slightly different to a different wheel manufactures hub, 9 times out of 10 you will not have to make any brake adjustments when swapping between wheelsets.

        • Will these wheels be ok with 50 mm tyre

          Yes you could fit a 50c tyre to our Race XC Wide Wheelset.
