HUNT Race Aero Wide Wheelset
HUNT Race Aero Wide | Road Wheelset
HUNT Race Aero Wide | Road Wheelset
<h1>Rims</h1><i>We've pushed the boundaries and added even more width and depth for extra grip, low aero drag and low rolling resistance. 24mm wide and 31mm deep rounded profile rim made from an enriched alloy that builds into a sub 1500g wheelset. HFR+ alloy is a material that uses a heat-treatment process which delivers outstanding weight, stiffness and durability meaning rims can be wider and deeper for better aero performance and yet remain super-light for excellent climbing and acceleration.</i>
<h1>Spokes</h1><i>We chose the top-of-the-range Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement PSR XTRA models. These butted blade aero spokes are lighter and provide a greater degree of elasticity to maintain tensions longer and add fatigue resistance. PSR spokes feature the 2.2 width at the head providing more material in this high stress area. Nipples are 14mm alloy, anodized and come with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning. Combining components well is key which is why all Hunt wheels are hand-built.</i>
<h1>Bearings</h1><i>The heart of any wheel. Investing in them makes huge sense. We use high-grade precision smooth-rolling sealed cartridge bearings by Japanese experts EZO. This wheelset has three of the rear hub bearings upgraded to S&S low-friction LU/LB seals on the internal bearing face to further reduce rolling resistance whilst maintaining excellent sealing on the exposed faces.</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 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.</i>
<h1>Rim Bed</h1><i>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 or riding off-road.</i>
<h1>Skewers</h1><i>The little details matter, the HUNT Race Season quick-release skewers use brass for the cam, which has self lubricating properties. We have also upgraded to stainless steel springs in order to prevent rusting.</i>
<h1>Rim Profile</h1>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>The consequence of the fanatic attention to detail is a very low 1487 gram wheelset weight especially for this aero depth and width combination. These wheels deliver your potential and then some,. Go on push even harder, they will reward you.</i>
<h1>Nipples</h1><i>Lightweight alloy nipples are the right decision to make for a high-performance wheelset where weight matters, plus we use longer 14mm nipples to provide great strength and a long thread connection with the spokes. The nipples also feature square bodies with a hex head (hex spoke key provided with the wheels) to allow ease of tensioning and maintenance.</i>
<h1>Hubs</h1><i>Precision machined straight pull hubs and spokes add strength and enhance power transfer meaning all your force pushes you forwards.</i>
<h1>Tyres</h1><i>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. Of course, all of our tubeless-ready wheels are designed to work perfectly with clincher tyres and inner tubes too.</i>
