HUNT 650B Adventure Carbon Wheelset
HUNT 650B Adventure Carbon Wheelset
HUNT 650B Adventure Carbon Wheelset
<h1>Rim Surface</h1><i>V:Absorbe resin reduces vibration and massively improves impact resistance. Disc brake rims are obviously not required to handle the high temperatures induced by prolonged rim braking. We have made the most of this and used our new V:Absorbe resin blends in the carbon layering which cures at a lower temperature. Lower temperature resins are less brittle meaning they have greater resistance to impacts and dampen vibration more effectively.</i>
<h1>Rims</h1><i>A strong and lightweight hookless rim featuring unidirectional T24/30 carbon fibre with 3K weave re-enforced spoke holes. An asymmetric shape which is inverted from front to rear to provide balanced higher spoke tensions meaning tighter spokes for longer. Disc specific rims allow higher strength to weight as no reinforcement is required for a braking surface. The extra wide rim at 33mm (26mm internal) creates a great profile for wider tyres, giving more grip and lower rolling resistance.</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 EZO Japan.</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, we've developed the <em>H_CERAMIK</em> coating to provide excellent durability and protect against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.</i>
<h1>Nipples</h1><i>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 to prevent issues that can arise from grit salt on the winter roads corroding the fine threads in alloy nipples. As well as the standard square body we chose nipples with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning.</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 off road.</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>The consequence of the fanatic attention to detail is a low 1461g wheelset weight, and dependable reliability for many adventures to come. Acceleration and climbing are massively improved over many of the stock wheels supplied on road/gravel/CX disc brake bikes.</i>
<h1>Hookless Rims</h1><i>The key benefits of hookless can be distilled down to the following: <ul><li> Stronger rim construction</li><li>Lighter weight rims</li><li>Slightly more aerodynamic profile of the global system (rim and tyre combined)</li><li>Lower manufacturing costs (which benefit the rider if they are passed on) and less waste generated during production</li></ul></i>
<h1>Adaptability</h1><i>Our wheels are seriously future-proof. We can adapt your wheels to any current axle standard on the market, you just need to let us know what are your requirements by filling in the simple form on the confirmation page after checkout.</i>
<h1>Hookless Technology</h1><i>Hookless rims are manufactured without bead hooks, the inward protruding edges at the top of the rim bed that help to retain clincher tyres under pressure. The internal rim walls of a hookless rim are flat and straight</i>

HUNT 650B Adventure Carbon Wheelset

HUNT 650B Adventure Carbon Disc Wheelset

26 Deep | 33 Wide Ext | 26 Wide Int | 1461g

THE ULTIMATE 650B WEAPONS. LOOK NO FURTHER FOR RIDICULOUSLY WIDE, LIGHT, TOUGH 27.5"/650B GRAVEL ROAD/TRAIL WHEELS

26 Deep | 33 Wide Ext | 26 Wide Int | 1461g

The Purpose

You asked, and we delivered! The HUNT 650B Adventure Carbon Wheelset is designed to serve as the ultimate weapon for 650b gravel shredding. They ideally compliment the fast, fun and highly versatile adventure-focused bikes which have a 'go anywhere' attitude. Perfect for those fun trail thrashes and bike-packing adventures, whilst not compromising anything for fast-far road days.

Read More
The opportunity to open up your riding comes from bikes which have geometry designed to ride excellently with both 700c or 27.5" (650b) wheels. This combination works thanks to the extra volume in a 2" x 27.5” tyre, providing an almost identical external tyre diameter to a normal road sized 700c wheel with a 33mm tyre, leaving the bike geo unchanged. What was needed was a bike that could accommodate the extra tyre width, while still running road groupsets, geo and components. These bikes are increasing in popularity and availability continuously!

We’ve designed a specific new rim profile for our new Gravel/Adventure wheels. Key features of this rim that make it great for the focused purpose of drop-bar adventure/gravel road riding are:

Wider 33mm external/26mm internal rim provides excellent ride handling and support for wider tyres, and they work perfectly with (up to) 2.2” MTB tyres.

The 26mm rim delivers excellent strength needed for the lower spoke counts and higher gear torques from road groupsets when compared to MTB setups.

Asymmetric rim accommodates the front disc and rear cassette hub offsets, and helps build an even stronger and more durable wheelset owing to balanced spoke tensions.

Other key features that make the AdventureSport wheels ideal for Dual 27.5"/700c bikes:

Fully adaptable axles, set up ready for your bike, out of the box.

Hard wearing laser etched graphics, which also save extra grams.

Hunt 4Season Disc hubs with excellent bearing coverage and protection for long running life.

SRAM XD compatible. 'Dual 27.5/700c' bikes are ideal for 1x single front ring groupsets.

Supplied with thru axle adaptors included as pretty much all 'Dual 27.5/700c' bikes run thru axles only. Read Less
