WHY - The bike wheelsets we want to buy aren't easily available so we've made them. We, Peter and Tom (above) Marchment, are avid cyclists and have years of experience in the UK bike industry sourcing and marketing bike components from around the world. Tom has worked with several leading performance wheel brands. This knowledge means HuntBikeWheels bring you the latest practical technology and thinking in all things round. Our hubs, spokes, rims, bearings and quick-releases are manufactured by leaders in each field and are then lovingly hand-built into outstanding wheels by experts with thousands of builds to their names.
HUNT OPEN DEV - We like to stir things up here at Hunt and OpenDev is a unique stage in our R&D program. We gather your incredibly valuable feedback through our website and social media, listen to your insights and create better wheels from shared fresh new ideas about how we will all ride. With the launch of the Hunt Open Dev Programme we cut straight to the core of the innovation you want to see as a devoted every-day rider. Our OpenDev Team is made up of real everyday riders who test our wheels over thousands of miles. These riders then feedback their thoughts and innovative product ideas to add fuel to our riding fire and keep us ahead of the game. OpenDev allows us to provide you with the lightweight fast wheels you need for the riding styles of today and tomorrow.
Our Hunt name is a play on the thrill and excitement of ‘The Chase’ we all love when riding, however it actually originated from the drive we have to ‘Hunt’ for every improvement in the rims, hubs, spokes, bearings, nipples and QRs we choose. The precision double contact sealed bearings by EZO Japan and Pillar’s high-spec spokes are great examples. The Pillar spokes we specify on all Hunt wheels are the top of the range triple-butted round and aero versions. They are cold-drawn from Swedish Sandvik Stainless Steel T302 wire and feature Pillar’s patented PSR spoke head re-enforcement. PSR spokes are butted again just before the spoke head providing more material in this high stress area. These spokes cost more but the triple butting provides a great ride and the PSR adds extra durability over standard spokes. Pillar Racing Spokes are trusted by many leading brands in the high-performance cycle sector, you can read more at www.PillarSpoke.com
