Tyres Info
HUNT recommends a 25-35mm tyre for best performance, tyre widths between 25mm and 50mm 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 _

Rims

Unidirectional carbon fibre rim construction, with 3k reinforcement at spoke holes for greater durability. The layup is comprised primarily of Toray T700 fibres which offer high impact resistance and flexibility. V:Absorb resin is blended in the carbon layering process, which cures at a lower temperature. Lower temperature resin reduces brittleness, resulting in greater impact resistance and more effective vibration dampening.

Freehub Body

The new HUNT H_Ratchet 36T SGL hubset provides a 10-degree engagement angle with improved durability, offering increased engagement surface area while using less shell materials relative to our race-proven pawl-based systems. Ships with Dumonde Tech Pro X freehub grease applied for long service life and contamination resistance. Compatible with 15mm thru-axles for adaptability for all modern road and gravel bikes.

Bearings

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

Spokes

Our team has further tuned the ride quality of the 50 Carbon Disc by selecting narrower gauge (TB2015) spokes for the front wheel to provide compliance, with slightly thicker gauge spokes (TB2016) in the rear for increased power transfer.

TYRES

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 with inner tubes, just use tubes in tubeless ready tyres.

WARRANTY_

A full 3 years from purchase date warranty is offered to the original purchaser only on all Hunt bike wheels against material or workmanship defects, please click here to read full details.

Stated wheel weights: Our stated wheel weights reflect the wheelset only; without rim tape, tubeless valves or disc brake lock rings, as is industry standard. While our carbon layup processes are very precise, a 3% variance (lower or higher) in total system weight is completely normal in aluminum rim manufacturing.

All HUNT wheels models have to pass our harsh cobbled-rolling-road tests for rider weight limits, please see here for more details. Max system weight 125 kg (system weight – total weight of fully kitted up rider, bike and luggage). If the system is over 105 kg then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly.
