The Purpose _

The Purpose _

We crafted the new HUNT 25 Carbon Gravel Race wheelset to offer maximum versatility and exceptionally low weight. Laced to our lighter, race-ready Sprint SL hubs, offering rapid 7.5-degree engagement for light and fast gravel riding or racing across technical and varied terrain.

Long-time advocates of tubeless technology for riding on and off road, HUNT’s development into hookless rims began back in 2016. With the 25 Carbon Gravel Disc rim development, we were able to push boundaries of rim weight-saving further, bringing the final rim weights to a mere 385g. 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.

A wheelset designed to offer control and speed for the fastest gravel rides. Tubeless, ETRTO compliant hookless rims, laced to a reliable, fast-engaging Sprint SL hub for a system ready to face any race day conditions.

HIGH SPECIFICATION COMPONENTS _

RIM PROFILE

A strong and super-lightweight asymmetric hookless rim. The rim dimensions are 25mm deep and 33mm wide external (26mm internal). Tubeless for lower weight, rolling resistance, and better puncture protection.

SPRINT SL HUBS

All-new Sprint SL hubs featuring the same strength and power transfer in a lower weight package, meaning more of your power pushing you forwards. The hub shell is 6066 series alloy, offering a greater strength-to-weight ratio than lower 6000 series alloys. Large 15mm diameter hub axles for climbing and out-of-saddle sprinting responsiveness. Circular dropout interface steps ensure a secure fitment.

SPOKES

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.

FREEHUB BODY

Featuring 3x treble-tooth pawls and a 48 tooth ratchet ring results in an impressively low 7.5-degree engagement angle, and excellent resistance to wear under heavy loads. The Sprint freehub has strong individual pawl springs which drive a consistent engagement. There is also a Steel Spline Insert re-enforcement to provide excellent durability against cassette sprocket damage.

BEARINGS

The heart of any wheel. Investing in them makes huge sense. We use high-grade precision smooth-rolling sealed cartridge bearings by EZO Japan.

BADLANDS WINNER
