HUNT Race Aero Wheelset
HUNT Race Aero | Road Wheelset
HUNT Race Aero | Road Wheelset
<h1>Rims</h1><i>High-performance technology that will deliver you to the finish every time. A strong and super-lightweight 6061-T6 heat-treated rim features an aero rounded profile 27mm deep and wide at 23mm (18mm internal) for a great tyre profile with wider 25-32mm tyres, giving excellent grip and lower rolling resistance.</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 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>
<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>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>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 or riding off-road.</i>
<h1>Skewers</h1><i>The little details matter, the HUNT Race Season quick-release skewers use brass for the cam, which has self lubricating properties. We have also upgraded to stainless steel springs in order to prevent rusting.</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>The consequence of the fanatical attention to detail is an outstandingly light 1439 gram wheelset weight. We can't promise you'll be the next Quintana but you will seriously notice the climbing and acceleration prowess of the Race Aero wheelset, don't tell your ride mates your secret.</i>
<h1>Hubs</h1><i>Precision machined straight pull hubs and spokes add strength and enhance power transfer meaning all your force pushes you forwards.</i>
