HUNT TrailWide MTB Wheelset

Hunt TrailWide MTB Wheelset
<h1>Rims</h1><i>The TrailWide rim includes details which are high on the durability factor to make sure you finish every ride with a big grin. The 6069-T6  (+69% tensile strength vs 6061-T6) alloy rim sticks with the wider-is-better mantra. Designed for 2.3"-2.5" tyres, the wide 30mm (internal) rim provides support to the tyre during hard cornering, landing in a root strewn shoot or when your throttling down a high-speed section and folding a tyre is the last thing you need to happen!</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>Spokes</h1><i>We have chosen top of the line, triple butted Pillar Spokes with increased reinforcement at the spoke head. 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, just before the J-Bend to prevent failure in this stress area.</i>
<h1>Rear Hub</h1><i>We create wheels to match the needs of riders who want the most from their wheels. The TrailWide hubs have been chosen to increase stiffness, bearing durability and overall strength of your wheelset. On the rear, the RapidEngage MTB hubs with a superfast 4.3degree engagement, means you will be able to put the power down straight out of the corners.</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>Rim Profile</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>Freehub Body</h1><i>Choose between SRAM/Shimano 8/9/10/11 or SRAM XD to be fitted to your TrailWide Wheels. Each freehub features six individual MultiPawls to ensure strong engagement, even in the grimmest conditions.</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>HUNT spoke key for hex and square fitment</li><li>Spare of each spoke plus nipples</li><li>Quality control card signed by your wheel builder</li></ul>
<h1>Made for where you ride</h1><i>From the local trails, to a remote piece of trail highup in a remote mountain range; we wanted to create a series of wheelsets tailored for your Trail riding.</i>
<h1>Tubeless Tyres Fitted</h1><i>Gain the most out of your riding with a set of tubeless Maxxis or Schwalbe Tyres fitted and set up tubeless with sealant ready to roll straight out of the box.</i>
<h1>Made for how you ride</h1><i>Enhanced to perfectly compliment your riding, the TrailWide is for those 'first out, last in' type of riders.</i>

The Purpose

The TrailWide is your go to wheelset no matter the conditions. Optimized to take a no-nonsense approach on the descents and not hold you back on the climbs Read More

The TrailWide is the answer to your weekends at the trail centre; back country epics; days spent smashing through your local woods and late afternoon sessions on the piece of trail still being bedded in - so pretty much a wheelset which can do it all!

The TrailWide rim includes details which are high on the durability factor to make sure you finish every ride with a big grin. The 6069-T6 series alloy rim sticks with the wider-is-better mantra. Designed around for 2.3"-2.5" tyres, the wide 30mm (internal) rim provides support to the tyre during hard cornering, landing in a root strewn shoot or when your throttling down a high-speed section and folding a tyre is the last thing you need to happen!

The Hunt RapidEngage MTB hubs have been specced based on our demands for an MTB wheelset. That is a superfast engagement, long lasting hub pawls no matter the conditions you're riding in and to be optimized to accommodate the latest 148x12mm Boost (Rear) and 110x15mm Boost (Front) standard. A super low engagement of 4.3 degrees means you will be able to put the power down straight out of the corners and not have any lag when jumping up those techy climbs.Read Less
