48 mm 35 mm 22.5 mm 700c

Designed and proven to be the fast wheel up to and uncluding 50mm depth. Patended, ultra-wide LIMITLESS aero technology provides world-beating aerodynamic performance and nerve-calming stability.

UD carbon spokes reduce weight and road vibration while increasing lateral responsiveness by 6%. HUNT Sprint SL-C hubs offer quick 7.5 degree engagement and CeramicSpeed (optional) bearings for low rolling resistance. The result is an exceptionally fast and versatile wheel system.

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

The Purpose _

<h1>CeramicSpeed Bearings</h1><i>You can spec your Limitless wheels with CeramicSpeed's industry-leading hybrid ceramic bearings. All CeramicSpeed ball bearings are Grade 3 Silicon Nitride, featuring the highest achievable surface finish and roundness. The quality of the balls determines the performance and lifetime of a bearing. The CeramicSpeed Balls feature unparalleled impact strength, smoothness, roundness and brittleness.</i>

The Purpose _

The fastest sub-50mm rims in the world, paired with our UD Carbon Spoke technology. The result is a wheelset offering complete, all-round performance across the board. Superior aerodynamic efficiency and crosswind stability, with added responsiveness and lower system weight.

Tyres Info
HUNT recommends a 25-28mm 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 21mm 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.

UD Carbon Spokes

TaperLock UD carbon spokes offer up to a 30% increase in lateral responsiveness compared to steel equivalents. Only 2.7g per spoke and yet can handle tightening forces of ~450kgf per spoke. Owing to the TaperLock technology, these spokes can be trued using a spoke key from inside the rim bed.

SLC Hubs

Our SLC hubs are developed specifically for UD carbon spokes, and boast a high strength-to-weight ratio owing to their forged 7075 construction.

CeramicSpeed Bearings

You can spec your Limitless wheels with CeramicSpeed's industry-leading hybrid ceramic bearings. All CeramicSpeed ball bearings are Grade 3 Silicon Nitride, featuring the highest achievable surface finish and roundness. The quality of the balls determines the performance and lifetime of a bearing. The CeramicSpeed Balls feature unparalleled impact strength, smoothness, roundness and brittleness.

Tyre Width Optimisation

Our 48 Limitless road rims are optimised for a 28mm Schwalbe Pro One. Patented LIMITLESS technology allows for a 22.5mm rim bed and a huge 34.5mm external rim width, meaning the rim sits far wider than the tyre for aerodynamic efficiency.
