Mason x Hunt 4Season Disc wheels: Whilst working with Dom Mason to spec his Mason Cycles, we realized that the specification and weights of the few available road/CX disc wheels were not ideal for a performance bike that would be used in all weather conditions. We knew we could use our links with suppliers to ‘Hunt’ for improvements in every detail. We enlisted our love for performance bike parts, applied our industry experience and set about creating Hunt Bike Wheels. A lightweight, durable four season disc wheelset was one of our first projects, the outcome was our superb Mason x Hunt 4Season Disc wheelset.
Exceptional speed and acceleration for your disc road/CX bike. We're honoured to have incredible REVIEWS from some of the most respected publications and websites:
Cycling Plus | BEST VALUE AWARD | 4.5 Stars "crammed full of features...the ride is taut and responsive but not harsh...our test set remained unscathed after long-term 'cross battering"
The Times Newspaper Online | 5/5 review for the MASON x HUNT 4Season Disc wheels. Plus full company profile, find out more click here. "The first noticeable aspect is the weight...when you pick your bike up after you’ve fitted them you’ll be amazed at how this transforms the weight of your machine"
London Cyclist Magazine | "They’re light, stiff, really well built and as ‘future-proofed’ as you can get in this age of ever-changing standards.. Great value for money"
Bikes Etc "These are a killer mid-priced set of hoops with all the flashiness of a top pair of hand-builts"
Bicycles.net.au | "So would I buy the Hunt 4Seasons? If I owned a disc brake road bike with a lower end disc wheelset, the answer is a resounding yes!"
Road.cc Hunt X Mason 4 season disc wheels first ride "the lightweight Hunt wheels complementing the frame here both in terms of weight and stiffness."
Cyclesguff "The 4 season wheels offer a subtle improvement with the overall comfort, the bike feels energised and ready for its next chase doon the lanes. Judging by the strava feed, I'm also covering the ground quicker."

Tubeless Tyre Fitting Option
Schwalbe One Pro Tubeless Road Tyres 23, 25 or 28mm are incredibly fast and light and can be fitted for £99. SRP per pair is £134, we fit them and include the sealant saving you the effort and £25.
The Hutchinson Sector 28 tyres are also worth considering as a great winter/durable option. The Sector 28s were designed for the cobblestones of Paris Roubaix and they also won BEST-IN-TEST in a Cycling Plus Magazine tyres review.

High-performance technology that will deliver you to the finish every time. A strong and lightweight 6061-T6 heat-treated welded rim features an asymmetric shape which is inverted from front to rear to provide balanced higher spoke tensions meaning your spokes stay tight for the long term. The rim profile is true disc specific which allows higher-strength to weight as no re-enforcement is required for a braking surface, it also looks stunning. The rim dimensions are semi-aero at 27mm deep and wide at 23mm (17mm internal) which creates a great tyre profile with wider 25-32mm tyres, giving excellent grip and lower rolling resistance.
Spokes were a very important part of the equation and we have gone to town choosing the top-of-the-range Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement (PSR) triple butted models which go from a 2.0-1.6-2.0-2.2 at the bend. Butted spokes are lighter but also provide a greater degree of elasticity and thus maintain spoke tensions longer and are more fatigue resistant. PSR spokes featured the 2.2 width at the spoke head providing more material in this high stress area. J-bend made sense for four season use as replacements are easy to find and we lace them two-cross for strength and brake force handling. To accompany these high-end spokes we selected brass nipples for our Hunt 4Season wheels. Brass is strong and corrosion resistant plus it has self-lubricating properties. As well as the standard square body we chose nipples with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning. Combining these components well is key and all Hunt wheels are hand-built and then tensioned by craftspeople who work in pairs to check and finish each other’s work.
Bearings are the heart of any wheel and investing in them makes huge sense so we went to Japanese bearing experts EZO and invested extra to spec their high-grade precision sealed cartridge bearings in our full range. Durability is a theme for Hunt wheels as time and money you spend fixing is time and money you can’t spend riding or upgrading your bikes. This is especially important for a 4Season bike you use regularly in harsh conditions. As a result 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.
Things are changing fast in the road and CX disc market so we have adaptability built-in. The Hunt X Mason 4Season Disc wheels are seriously future-proof. The 4Season Disc Front hub axle is QR as standard but some road disc bikes are now moving to thru axle forks so the 4Season Disc Wheels have 12mm adapters included with thru 9 and 15mm available separately. Plus the rear hub can be adapted to 12-135/142. Disc fitment is also a potential head ache for riders. As Shimano hydraulic brakes, with their impressive ice-tech rotors, are appearing on many new bikes, including Mason, we wanted riders to have the option so we went even more adaptable with centre-lock hubs and 6 bolt adapters included.
PLEASE NOTE: if using a 15mm front thru axle then you will also require an external spline rotor lockring which can be ordered separately HERE
At Hunt we enjoy the puncture resistance and grip benefits of tubeless on our every-day rides so we wanted to allow our customers the same option, but of course all our tubeless-ready wheels are also designed to work perfectly with clincher tyres and inner tubes.
H-Lock tubeless-ready rim bed profile. H-Lock is our tubeless-ready rim bed profile with up-kicks to the shoulders of the tubeless steps which help to create a great rim-well seal for first installation and easy sealing of tubeless tyres. The H-Lock profile also locks the beads in place more securely once seated. This is especially important when running lower pressures off road.
Internal cam quick-release skewers provide a secure fitting ideal for handling the forces from disc braking and they prevent dirt ingress to the cam faces keeping them smooth even in the poorest conditions. And of course, we went the whole hog and upgraded the QR springs to stainless steel so they don’t rust.
The consequence of the fanatic attention to detail is a resulting 1585 gram wheelset weight. Acceleration and climbing are massively improved over many of the stock wheels supplied on road/CX disc brake bikes and of course hugely important for performance bikes like the Mason Cycles range.

Warranty & weight limits
A full 2 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. 95kgs 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. We do offer wheels with higher weight limits please look for the DURA and GRAVEL models in our range. If a rider using these wheels is over 85Kgs then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly and it is advisable to use minimum 25 mm tyres at max 100psi 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.
