HUNT Hill Climb SL Tubular Wheelset
<h1>HILL CLIMB SL</h1><i>Built with one purpose in mind, to win Hill Climb events against the clock.</i>
<h1>HILL CLIMB SL</h1><i>Please note, these wheels are not suitable for road racing and general riding.</i>
<h1>Bearings</h1><i>The heart of any wheel. Investing in them makes huge sense. We use high-grade precision sealed cartridge bearings by Japanese experts EZO, and this wheelset even has low-friction seals to further reduce rolling resistance.</i>
<h1>Freehub Body</h1><i>Featuring a 3 multi-point pawls with 3 teeth each 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 engage quicker. There is also a Steel Spline Insert re-enforcement 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 Megalite Bladed models. These butted blade aero spokes are lighter and provide a greater degree of elasticity to maintain tensions longer and add fatigue resistance. PSR spokes feature the 2.2 width at the head providing more material in this high stress area. Nipples are 14mm alloy, anodized and come with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning. Combining components well is key which is why all Hunt wheels are hand-built.</i>

HUNT Hill Climb SL Tubular Wheelset

30 Deep | 23 Wide | 991g

The Ultimate Hill Climb Wheels

30 Deep | 23 Wide | 991g | Up to 78kg

The Purpose

Designed to be the ultimate tool for Hill Climb events, not general road racing. The seriously high tensile strength 40ton 6K carbon rims are extremely light (280g), and ideal for this type of use in wheels. Please note, the rough and tumble of general road riding and racing, and long fast alpine downhills with extended heavy braking, is better suited to our T700/800 carbon fibre rims used in the rest of our range, as T700/800 carbon fibre pre-preg has higher impact and heat resistance. Read More

Bringing the spoke count down is a clear and obvious way to save weight, but we've also invested in Pillar's high-end Megalite spokes, weighing just 3.4g each! 2017-18 National Hill Climb Champion, Dan Evans, has been crucial to the development of the wheelset, and says "obviously they’re lovely and light but the main thing that comes across is how stiff and solid they feel, nothing like other climbing wheelsets on the market that’s for sure".
