Hunt 60 Limitless Aero Disc Wheelset
<h1>PATENTED LIMITLESS TECHNOLOGY</h1><i>This is bonded to the carbon during the curing process, resulting in an exceptionally strong bond. The density of carbon is 1.6g per cubic centimetre, whereas the polymer inserts weigh just 0.7g per cubic centimetre, resulting in a (rotational) mass loss of just over 50g per rim. This patented technology enables us to consider the limits of material properties, and smash right past them.</i>
<h1>PATENTED LIMITLESS TECHNOLOGY </h1><i>In order to create the most aerodynamic & stable shape for the tyre, a rim bed of 21mm is needed. With the tyre profile this creates the ideal shape of the rim curves out to an external width of 34mm. To overcome the weight penalty associated with this, we use a (non-structural) low density expanding polymer insert, inside a channel carved out during pre-preg.</i>
<h1>PILLAR WING SPOKES </h1><i>After considerable testing across multiple spoke types (including analysis against competitor spokes), we found that the aerofoil profile of Pillar's Wing 20 spokes offer even further aerodynamic advantages over flat/bladed options.</i>
<h1>CERAMICSPEED BEARINGS </h1><i>The 60 Limitless Aero Disc will come fully equipped with CeramicSpeed's industry-leading hybrid ceramic bearings, even in the freehub body. All CeramicSpeed Balls are of the highest quality Grade 3 Silicon Nitride, featuring the highest achievable surface finish and roundness. The quality of the balls is what determines the performance and lifetime of a bearing. The CeramicSpeed Balls feature unparalleled impact strength, smoothness, roundness and brittleness.</i>
<h1>FREEHUB BODY</h1><i>Featuring 3 multi-point pawls with 3 teeth each and a 48t ratchet ring. The result an impressively low 7.5 deg engagement angle. Durability is a theme for HUNT, and so all our freehub bodies have Steel Spline Insert re-enforcements to provide excellent durability against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies. Includes 2 CeramicSpeed bearings in the body.</i>
<h1>NIPPLES</h1><i>Despite designing a wheelset with aerodynamic supremacy in mind, serviceability and usability has always been a core philosophy of how we put wheels together. External spoke nipples are absolutely the right choice with this in mind, especially when running tubeless tyres as you would have to remove the tubeless tape to access the nipples were they to be internal.</i>
<h1>TYRE COMPATIBILITY</h1><i>Optimised aerodynamically for a Schwalbe Pro One 25-28c, but compatible with any tubeless or clincher tyre from 23 up to 45c.</i>
<h1>RIM PROFILE</h1><i>Patent-pending Limitless width technology allows for a 21mm rim bed and a 34mm external rim width, meaning the rim sits far wider than the tyre for aerodynamic superiority.</i>
<h1>WIND TUNNEL TESTED </h1><i>Developed by Luisa Grappone, with years in the wind tunnel spent testing every last detail. We've left no stone unturned in designing this wheelset from the ground up to be very fastest in the world within its class.</i>

Hunt 60 Limitless Aero Disc Wheelset

A HIGH-SPEED CRIT AND ROAD RACE WEAPON THAT CUTS THROUGH THE WIND BUT HANDLES LIKE A SHALLOWER RIM, ALLOWING YOU TO MAINTAIN YOUR AERO POSITION THROUGH VARIABLE CONDITIONS.

60 DEEP | 34 WIDE EXT | 21 INT | 1669G

The Purpose

The 60 Limitless Aero Disc excels at minimizing aerodynamic drag while maintaining a smooth steering moment, allowing riders to carry higher speeds through corners and variable conditions.

Consistent and predictable bike handling during varying side wind conditions empowers the rider to maintain the most aerodynamic position on the bicycle and fully utilize the benefits of aerodynamically optimized wheels. Any aerodynamic advantage is immediately erased if the rider is forced to sit up in the final meters of a chaotic finish in order to maintain control.

The wheelset is ideal for all-out riding and racing at maximum speed on fast courses, like the HUNT-supported LA Sweat Team at Tulsa Tough or the Qhubeka ASSOS team in rapid, flat stages of the European grand tours.

Wind tunnel proven against world leading wheels. See the research white paper for full technical details of our wind tunnel testing methodology, including data/graphs and the full range of wheels we tested against.

CeramicSpeed’s world renowned low-friction bearings.

Introduction and Process

The all-new HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc wheelset was designed to provide riders maximum aerodynamic benefit in a system that maintains predictable, stable ride characteristics. Patent pending Limitless width technology, developed by Luisa Grappone (MSc Aerospace Engineering) along with Pete Marchment (Co-Founder & Materials Scientist), utilises co-molded low-density polymer (density of 0.7g/cm3 vs. carbon fibre pre-perg of 1.6g/cm3) in the outer rim construction to achieve an extra wide profile optimized for 25-28c tyres, while keeping overall rim weight low.


Wind tunnel results

The wind tunnel results below shows that the HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc offers comparable performance against a number of leading aerodynamic wheel manufacturers. When paired with the optimal Schwalbe Pro One 28mm tyre the wheels were the 3rd fastest wheelset on the market at the time of testing.

The power data from the tunnel was analysed with a set of yaw angle weightings, independently published by MAVIC, showing that the wind averaged power difference is as minimal as 0.35W between the HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc and ENVE 5.6 SES DISC and 0.22W between HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc and ROVAL RAPIDE CLX. The testing sessions also found that the 60 Limitless Aero Disc outperforms some deeper, highly considered wheelsets on the market.

The Steering Moment analysis confirms the predictable and stable handling characteristics of the HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc, particularly at yaw angles greater than 10 degrees. For a number of the competitors wheelsets, significant changes in the steering moment curve gradient are observed in the region of 10 degrees yaw, which could result in unpredictable forces felt when encountering changes in wind direction at higher yaw angles such as cornering hard into the final turn of a sprint or turning onto Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway heading back into Kailua-Kona.

Cross Wind Stability

Many riders are familiar with the unsettling feeling of turning onto an unprotected road and immediately getting hit with a strong gust of wind; your heart skips a beat for half a second and you grip the bars a little tighter as you regain your confidence. With the development of the 60 Limitless Aero Disc, HUNT set out to make a wheelset that could have smooth and consistent airflow around the rim when you need it most.

As first explored in the testing of the 42 Limitless Gravel Disc, HUNT monitors various elements of aerodynamic performance, including side forces that act on the rims, and the effect those forces have on the steering moment. As with our previous projects, our wheels are tested through a range of effective yaw angles between negative 20 degrees and positive 20 degrees.

Concluded in the white paper attached, the steering moment analysis on the 60 Limitless Aero Disc and its closest competitors confirms predictable and stable handling characteristics. Most notably when the yaw angles are greater than 10 degrees. In the analysis, one can see that there are significant changes in the steering moment curve gradient when in the region of 10 degrees yaw, which could result in unpredictable forces felt when encountering changes in wind direction at higher yaw angles. These changes in wind direction occur numerous times when riding through a city, as wind constantly changes in direction and magnitude as it is pushed up, around and down off of buildings resulting in often chaotic wind flow.

Whether you're hitting out at your local crit or road race, or taking the long way home on the paths less travelled, you can do so with the confidence that you're rolling on hoops designed to take the lot in their stride.

    Accordingly, we now offer free lifetime crash replacement for the first owners of these wheels. Read all about it here.

    A full 3 years from purchase date warranty is offered to the original purchaser only on all Hunt bike wheels against material or workmanship defects, please click here to read full details.

    All HUNT wheels models have to pass our harsh cobbled-rolling-road tests for rider weight limits, please see here for more details. 109kgs is the upper recommended rider weight limit for these wheels. Please include the weight of any luggage in your total rider weight when choosing the correct wheels. If a rider is over 90kgs then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly and it is advisable to use tyres at max 90psi as this will reduce the fatigue on the wheelset. We are cyclists ourselves and do of course go above and beyond to offer excellent service if you ever do experience any issues. We carry full spares at very reasonable prices and offer complete support.

    60 Day Ride Return Period. We are certain you'll be impressed by the acceleration, low-weight, speed and durability of our wheels.

    Consistent and predictable bike handling during varying side wind conditions empowers the rider to maintain the most aerodynamic position on the bicycle and fully utilize the benefits of aerodynamically optimized wheels. Any aerodynamic advantage is immediately erased if the rider is forced to sit up in the final meters of a chaotic finish in order to maintain control.

    The wheelset is ideal for all-out riding and racing at maximum speed on fast courses, like the HUNT-supported LA Sweat Team at Tulsa Tough or the Qhubeka ASSOS team in rapid, flat stages of the European grand tours.

    Wind tunnel proven against world leading wheels. See the research white paper for full technical details of our wind tunnel testing methodology, including data/graphs and the full range of wheels we tested against.

    Introduction and Process

    The all-new HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc wheelset was designed to provide riders maximum aerodynamic benefit in a system that maintains predictable, stable ride characteristics. Patent pending Limitless width technology, developed by Luisa Grappone (MSc Aerospace Engineering) along with Pete Marchment (Co-Founder & Materials Scientist), utilises co-molded low-density polymer (density of 0.7g/cm3 vs. carbon fibre pre-perg of 1.6g/cm3) in the outer rim construction to achieve an extra wide profile optimized for 25-28c tyres, while keeping overall rim weight low.


    Wind tunnel results

    The wind tunnel results below shows that the HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc offers comparable performance against a number of leading aerodynamic wheel manufacturers. When paired with the optimal Schwalbe Pro One 28mm tyre the wheels were the 3rd fastest wheelset on the market at the time of testing.

    The power data from the tunnel was analysed with a set of yaw angle weightings, independently published by MAVIC, showing that the wind averaged power difference is as minimal as 0.35W between the HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc and ENVE 5.6 SES DISC and 0.22W between HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc and ROVAL RAPIDE CLX. The testing sessions also found that the 60 Limitless Aero Disc outperforms some deeper, highly considered wheelsets on the market.

    The Steering Moment analysis confirms the predictable and stable handling characteristics of the HUNT 60 Limitless Aero Disc, particularly at yaw angles greater than 10 degrees. For a number of the competitors wheelsets, significant changes in the steering moment curve gradient are observed in the region of 10 degrees yaw, which could result in unpredictable forces felt when encountering changes in wind direction at higher yaw angles such as cornering hard into the final turn of a sprint or turning onto Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway heading back into Kailua-Kona.

    Cross Wind Stability

    Many riders are familiar with the unsettling feeling of turning onto an unprotected road and immediately getting hit with a strong gust of wind; your heart skips a beat for half a second and you grip the bars a little tighter as you regain your confidence. With the development of the 60 Limitless Aero Disc, HUNT set out to make a wheelset that could have smooth and consistent airflow around the rim when you need it most.

    As first explored in the testing of the 42 Limitless Gravel Disc, HUNT monitors various elements of aerodynamic performance, including side forces that act on the rims, and the effect those forces have on the steering moment. As with our previous projects, our wheels are tested through a range of effective yaw angles between negative 20 degrees and positive 20 degrees.

    Concluded in the white paper attached, the steering moment analysis on the 60 Limitless Aero Disc and its closest competitors confirms predictable and stable handling characteristics. Most notably when the yaw angles are greater than 10 degrees. In the analysis, one can see that there are significant changes in the steering moment curve gradient when in the region of 10 degrees yaw, which could result in unpredictable forces felt when encountering changes in wind direction at higher yaw angles. These changes in wind direction occur numerous times when riding through a city, as wind constantly changes in direction and magnitude as it is pushed up, around and down off of buildings resulting in often chaotic wind flow.
