HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Wheelset

1618g Depth Width ext Width int size
48 mm 35 mm 22.5 mm 700c

HUNT's award-winning, wind-tunnel developed road race wheelset. Proven with Grand Tour stage victory and made possible through patended LIMITLESS width technology. The world's fasted disc brake wheels up to (and including) 50mm.

LIMITLESS technology provides the aero benefits equal to those of significantly deeper wheel profiles, while maintaining the crosswind stability and predictability expected of much shallower profiles.

Tyre size: Aero optimized for 28 to 30mm tyres; work well with 25mm up to 45mm.

CYCLINGTIPS REVIEW

"Super stable, reliable, fast, and with open tyre compatibility, the Limitless 48 Aero Disc wheels have plenty to offer without asking a huge price in return."

The Purpose _

The Purpose _

The ultimate aerodynamic wheelset. Designed by HUNT's in-house engineering team to meet the needs of the modern rider, at the speeds they ride at. We ride at a range of wind yaw angles far greater than previously considered, and so HUNT Limitless is able to deliver aerodynamic supremacy across a wide range of riding and at real-world speeds.

Tyres Info
HUNT recommends a 28-30mm tyre for best performance, tyre widths between 25mm and 47mm are also safe to use.  Note: best performance is usually gained by using tyre pressures lower than the maximum, you can see our blog post about this, read here. Tubeless-ready for lower weight and rolling resistance. You must not exceed the maximum tyre pressure limits set out in the table below or the maximum limit set by your tyre manufacturer if this is lower.

HIGH SPECIFICATION COMPONENTS _

Patented Limitless Technology

In order to create the most aerodynamic & stable shape for the tyre, a rim bed of 22.5mm is needed. With the tyre profile this creates, the ideal shape of the rim curves out to an external width of 34mm. To overcome the weight penalty associated with this, we use a (non-structural) low density expanding polymer insert, inside a channel carved out during the production process.

Patented Limitless Technology

This is bonded to the carbon during the curing process, resulting in a uniform and strong bond. The density of carbon is 1.6g per cubic centimetre, whereas the polymer insert weighs just 0.7g per cubic centimetre, resulting in a (rotational) mass loss of just over 50g per rim. This patented technology enables us to consider the limits of material properties, and smash right past them.

Wing Spokes

After considerable testing across multiple spoke types (including analysis against competitor spokes), we found that the aerofoil profile of Pillar's Wing 20 spokes offer even further aerodynamic advantages over flat/bladed options.

Nipples

Despite designing a wheelset with aerodynamic supremacy in mind, serviceability and usability has always been a core philosophy of how we put wheels together. External spoke nipples are absolutely the right choice with this in mind, especially when running tubeless tyres as you would have to remove the tubeless tape to access the nipples were they to be internal

CeramicSpeed Bearings

The 48 Limitless Aero Disc will come fully equipped with CeramicSpeed's industry-leading hybrid ceramic bearings, even in the freehub body. All CeramicSpeed Balls are of the highest quality Grade 3 Silicon Nitride, featuring the highest achievable surface finish and roundness. The quality of the balls is what determines the performance and lifetime of a bearing. The CeramicSpeed Balls feature unparalleled impact strength, smoothness, roundness and brittleness.

Freehub body

Featuring 3 multi-point pawls with 3 teeth each and a 48t ratchet ring. The result an impressively low 7.5 deg engagement angle. Durability is a theme for HUNT, and so 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. Includes 2 CeramicSpeed bearings in the body.
