Hunt 40 Carbon Gravel Race x Classified Wheelset
<h1>RIM PROFILE</h1><i>A strong and super-lightweight hookless rim. The rim dimensions are 40mm deep and 30mm wide external (25mm internal) optimised for 38-40mm tyres. Tubeless for lower weight, rolling resistance, and better puncture protection.</i>
<h1>RIM PROFILE</h1><i>When designing a wheelset with absolute lightness and off-road capabilities as the driving principle, then a hookless rim profile is the right choice.</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>Classified Rear Hub</h1><i>Classified rear hubshell has been fitted to this wheelset by hand, and will arrive ready to fit a Powershift hub system.</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 but also provide a greater degree of elasticity to maintain tensions longer and add fatigue resistance. PSR spokes feature the 2.2 width at the spoke head providing more material in this high stress area. The nipples come with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning. Combining these components well is key which is why all HUNT wheels are hand-built.</i>
<h1>Tyre Width Optimisation</h1><i>25mm internal rim profile, featuring a hookless and ETRTO-compliant tubeless rim, designed exclusively for tubeless tyres.</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>1,270g (Including Powershift rear hub shell)</i>
<h1>Tyres</h1><i>Optimised for a 38mm-40mm tyre, but compatible with tubeless hookless compatible tyres from 29 up to 71mm.</i>
<h1>In The Box</h1><i><ul><li>HUNT BlackShield tubeless tape fitted to wheels.</li><li>Tubeless Valves</li> <li>Quality control card signed by your wheel builder.</li></ul></i>

Classified x HUNT 40 Carbon Gravel Race Wheelset

40 DEEP | 30 WIDE EXT | 25 WIDE INT | 1,270g (Including POWERSHIFT rear hub shell)

A LIGHTWEIGHT, RACE-FOCUSED HOOKLESS GRAVEL WHEELSET BUILT FOR DEMANDING DAYS IN THE SADDLE. NOW AVAILABLE WITH A CLASSIFIED POWERSHIFT REAR HUB SHELL.

40 DEEP | 30 WIDE EXT | 25 WIDE INT | 1,270g (Including POWERSHIFT rear hub shell)

The Purpose

The HUNT 40 Carbon Gravel Race wheelset was built to meet the needs of the gravel racer and rider. With the integration of a Classified Powershift rear hub shell, we’re able to pack even more industry-leading design to into this versatile and fast, best-selling gravel wheelset.

Wide and lightweight 40mm-deep hookless rims offer durability, quick acceleration and aerodynamic efficiency, intended for use with modern width gravel race tyres. With an integrated Powershift rear hub, your riding will benefit from the wide gearing range and functionality of a front derailleur and 2x drivetrain, while enjoying the simplicity and aero benefits of a 1x setup.

Long-time advocates of tubeless technology for riding on and off-road, HUNT’s development into hookless rims began back in 2016. With the 40 Carbon Gravel Race rim development, we were able to push the boundaries of rim weight-saving further, bringing the final rim weights to a mere 395g. As well as having that performance benefit, due to a simpler manufacturing process, hookless rims can be produced with less waste, resulting in a cost reduction which can be passed on to riders.

Wide, tubeless, ETRTO-compliant hookless rims, laced to the Powershift rear hub shell for a lightweight gravel-specific wheel system ready to go the distance in your next gravel race or fast ride.

Powershift technology is a wireless shifting technology that allows you to shift gears instantly and under full load. Its first application is the Powershift rear hub, which replaces the front derailleur. The Powershift hub offers unrivalled shift quality, wide gearing range and small steps in between gears combining the benefits of both 1x and 2x drivetrains.

NOTE: The Classified Powershift internal system and electronics must be supplied by select Classified dealers. This wheelset does not contain the complete system. The rear wheel is delivered with the Classified hub shell, without the Powershift hub internals. Please contact our Rider Experience team with any questions.
