Tyres Info
HUNT recommends a 2.2" to 2.4" tyre for best performance, tyre widths between 1.4" and 2.8" are also safe to use.  Note: best performance is usually gained by using tyre pressures lower than the maximum, you can see our blog post about this, read here. Tubeless-ready for lower weight and rolling resistance. You must not exceed the maximum tyre pressure limits set out in the table below or the maximum limit set by your tyre manufacturer if this is lower.

HIGH SPECIFICATION COMPONENTS _

Rims

Highly impact resistant 6069 T6 rim construction boasting a wide 28mm internal front and 26mm internal rear for optimal performance on any terrain. FEA modelled and tested in the UK to ensure class-leading impact resistance while retaining a comfortable ride at a competitive weight.

Rim Bed

HUNT wheels are designed to be used as a tubeless system, featuring our state-of-the-art H-Lock rim bead with unique 'up-kicks' to secure your tyre when seated. H-Lock minimizes side-to-side movement, reducing the risk of burping your tyre and enhancing the overall performance of your ride. This system also creates a flawless rim-well seal for effortless installation and easy sealing of tubeless tyres.

SPOKES

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.

Nipples

Hard-anodized 14 gauge alloy nipples offer a winning combination of lightweight design and unyielding strength. The large 14mm square body provides easy adjustability for maintenance and unbeatable durability.

Front Hub

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.

Freehub Body

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 H_CERAMIK coating to provide excellent durability and protect against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.
