HUNT 50 Carbon Aero Disc Wheelset
HUNT 50 Carbon Aero Disc Wheelset
HUNT 50 Carbon Aero Disc Wheelset
<h1>On the podium</h1><i>Ridden to victory by Muro Schmid (Team Qhubeka-NextHash) on Stage 11 of the 2021 Giro D'Italia, over the white gravel roads of Tuscany.</i>
<h1>Rims</h1><i>A strong and super-lightweight rim featuring unidirectional T24/30 carbon fibre with 3K weave re-enforced spoke holes. The wide aero profile delivers excellent handling and speed. The evolution of disc brake specific construction has allowed massive weight savings over equivalent rim-brake rims. The removal of braking forces on the rim allows a strong but very light rim to be designed that can focus on it's primary roles of supporting the tyre and spoke forces.</i>
<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>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 Japanese experts EZO. This wheelset has three of the rear hub bearings upgraded to S&S low-friction LU/LB seals on the internal bearing face to further reduce rolling resistance whilst maintaining excellent sealing on the exposed faces.</i>
<h1>Freehub Body</h1><i>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 as time and money you spend fixing is time and money you cannot spend riding or upgrading your bikes. As a result 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.</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>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>Adaptability</h1><i>Our wheels are seriously future-proof. We can adapt your wheels to any current axle standard, you just need to let us know what you require by filling in the simple form on the confirmation page after checkout. Please note these wheels will not work with the older 15mm front road TA standard.</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>The consequence of the fanatical attention to detail is an outstandingly light 1487 gram wheelset weight. Gone are the days when having a disc-equipped road bike always resulted in a weight penalty. You can now float up the climbs, and then brake later than the others on the way back down!</i>
<h1>TYRES</h1> <i>At Hunt we enjoy the puncture resistance and grip benefits of tubeless on our every-day rides so we wanted to allow you the same option, but of course these tubeless-ready wheels are also designed to work perfectly inner tubes, just use tubes in tubeless ready tyres.</i>
<h1>In the Box</h1><ul><li>Hunt Black Shield tubeless tape fitted to wheels.</li><li>The axle adapters needed for your bike, just fill in the simple form shown after order completion, the form is also included in your order confirmation page.</li><li>Cassette spacer for 8/9/10 speed</li><li>Tubeless Valves</li><li>Spare of each spoke plus nipples</li><li>Quality control card signed by your wheel builder</li></ul>

HUNT 50 Carbon Aero Disc Wheelset

50 Deep | 27 Wide | 1487g

THE WIND-CHEATING ORIGINAL, RIDDEN TO GIRO D’ITALIA STAGE VICTORY BY TEAM QHUBEKA (MAURO SCHMID, STAGE 11, 2021 EDITION)

50 Deep | 27 Wide Ext | 19 Wide Int | 1487g

The Purpose

Disc brake bikes have quickly become the norm in road races, criteriums, and even time trials, from the amateur ranks to the WorldTour, due to the numerous advantages provided. The revolution is happening and to capitalise on the benefits, you will need an aero wheelset that delivers speed in buckets. Introducing the 50 Carbon Aero Disc, a HUNT best-seller and rider favourite, proven at the highest level of the sport. We’re proud to offer you the exact wheelset raced to victory on Stage 11 of the 2021 Giro d’Italia by Mauro Schmid of Team Qhubeka.

The super-wide 27mm rim provides superior aerodynamic performance. The U-profile serves up great handling and reduces drag across multiple wind yaw-angles. The wider 19mm internal rim bed opens out your tyre profile providing exceptional vibration reduction, grip and low rolling-resistance.

The straight pull hubs and bladed spokes reduce weight, add strength and respond instantly to your accelerations. The freehub body on the HUNT Sprint hub features 48 teeth on the ratchet ring, and treble-tooth pawls, providing incredible 7.5° engagement. Perfect for when the hammer goes down and you need an instant response. We’ve even upgraded to LU/LB bearings which are low-friction sealed on the internal face to further reduce rolling resistance and increase your speed whilst maintaining excellent sealing on the exposed faces. The latest breed of tubeless tyres give-up nothing in weight to their clincher counterparts, as well as removing the tube for weight saving and reducing rolling resistance, so tubeless was essential.
