Created for 'Josh' types (Ultra-Distance Heros) but also enjoyed by 'us' types (a bit less super-human, but still want convenience when commuting, training & road/off-road bike-packing)
A dynamo hub is a an ingenious idea, a small coil of copper wire that spins inside a group of magnets to produce electricity, effectively it is an electric motor in reverse. You can then connect up electric devices such as lights and never need to worry about having to abandon your ride due to lack of light. We've had a large number of requests for a dynamo wheelset and so our HUNT started for a light-weight durable and fast wheelset that provides you with freedom from constant charging of lights for your on and off-road bike-pack adventures, fast commuting and daily winter training. The HUNT SuperDura Dynamo wheelset is the result, our proven wide tubeless asymmetric Gravel Disc rim with our extra sealed and shielded 4Season Disc rear hub and a seriously durable high 32 spoke count build of Pillar's light and extremely strong triple butted PSR spokes. Even with the extra 240g of the dynamo hub this wheelset is still lighter at 1939g than many disc brake wheels fitted to bikes as original equipment!
SuperDura Dynamo Disc Wheels on Road.cc
For the HUNT SuperDura Dynamo wheelset we collaborated with SON (Schmidt Original Nabendynamo), we had long been aware of just how highly regarded SON are for their durability and performance. Wilfred Schmidt is incredibly passionate about dynamos so our chats with him excited our inner geek. Wilfred and his team have been engineering their dynamo hubs in Germany since their first prototype 25 years ago.
SON dynamos are renowned for their market-leading efficiency. When your light is drawing power (light switched on) the efficiency of a SON hub is an impressive 65%, so at the German testing standard of 3 watts / 6 volt dynamo output (11-12 mph with the SONDelux) just 4.6 watts of your rolling power is used. Of course the light is always available, so no realising you forgot to charge and having to abandon your ride.
With the light off/unplugged (e.g. day light riding) the graph below shows that for the SONdelux there is less than half a watt extra rolling resistance compared to a high quality normal non-dynamo hub. For a bit of context; for a 1 hour commute fast training ride, as very amateur cyclists here at HUNT, we would expect to produce somewhere between 160-250 watts average depending on our weight and level of fitness.
The deep thought and detail that goes into every SONdynamo sits well with our philosophy to HUNT for improvements in even the smallest details. The connectors used by SON are a great example; they are universal spade connectors available from most electrical retailers/suppliers/hardware stores rather than a connector that is unique to the hub design. This means that if the connector is lost or damaged far from home finding parts will be a whole lot easier.
- These wheels are adaptable for 12mm and QR axles. They are not suitable for 15mm axles.
- Dynamo specific AC power charging devices or lights (Exposure Revo) are required to work with dynamo hubs.
SONdelux | Highly efficient, faster and lower weight.
Drop bar road and adventure bikes are designed for going fast, where as many dynamo hubs were designed for town bikes. The rapid advancement and incredible efficiency of LED lighting compared to older halogen bulbs has meant that lights such as the Exposure Revo (available as a package with these wheels - please click here) would run at it's whopping 800 lumen output at just 10 mph. SON realised that by using a smaller lighter generator they could reduce drag by an impressive 20% and still achieve the 3 watt / 6 volt output (800 lumens on the Revo light) at just 11-12 mph. Even at 10 mph you will get upwards of 500 lumens from the Exposure Revo light! The super fast SONdelux is the result of this innovative thinking, 20% better rolling resistance and lower weight, only 395g (the SON28 weighs 430g).
5 Year Warranty (inc. bearings)
SON Pressure Compensation System
All dynamos heat slightly during operation and then cool, the cooling of air in the hub body of most dynamo hubs can cause lowering air pressure inside the hub. This lower air pressure can lead to suction of water through the bearing seals significantly reducing the life of hub bearings. However, SON dynamos feature their unique Pressure Compensation System which consists of an air flow port on the axle cap and inside the axle (as shown below) and an air reservoir tube.
The SON Pressure Compensation System allows air pressure to be equalised thus extending bearing life to a huge 50,000-100,000 kms. The tube (shown below) is long enough that water doesn't reach the end, and when the dynamo heats up again air pressure increases and any air and water is forced back out of the axle end of the tube preventing damage.
The unique SON Pressure Compensation System allows us to offer a you huge 5 year warranty on the SON Dynamo hubs including bearing wear.

Why only suitable for 12mm and QR, not 15mm?
"We would like to offer a 15mm option on these Dynamo wheels. Dynamo wheels (whilst being able to adapt to QR with a sleeve) cannot be adapted between 12 and 15mm (unlike a normal hub) due to the hub caps needing to be fixed and cabled for the dynamo to operate, and 12mm forks will not accept a 15mm cap as they have a small ridge above the axle interface. For our first dynamo wheels we had to choose one size either 12 or 15mm thru to launch with. Since all major drop bar disc brake bike manufacturers plus many of our bike company partners such as Mason Cycles have 12mm now as their standard for fork axles, and this looks to continue in the future, we went with 12mm adaptable to QR for the first option. Of course we are looking at 15mm as an option in the future, but it would probably need to be 6 bolt to allow the larger ball bearings; ball bearing size is very small on 15mm dynamo axles if fitted inside a centre lock disc mount diameter and around the larger dynamo axle thickness (needs space for wire to pass through the bearing inner dimater unlike a normal 15mm hub axle).
Apologies to anyone who was hoping for a 15mm HUNT Dynamo option, it was a difficult decision to make for our first dynamo option, and we of course want to serve as many riders as possible. I hope this explains it a bit more, we would love to offer an option for you soon. Obviously since drop bar disc brake bikes are now becoming more stable in their standards hopefully these things will be simpler in future, here's hoping as it would probably make all our lives easier as riders 3 Thanks again and enjoy your riding, Tom Marchment, HuntBikeWheels | TheRiderFirm"
Exposure Lights tried, tested and much loved dynamo powered light. Providing up to 800 lumens of power that is only limited by your endurance, it is the new must have for adventure riding, touring and commuting. Plus it's manufactured just down the road from us here in Sussex, UK.
The Exposure Revo Dynamo light weighs a feathery 110grams as it needs no battery, so as a package the light and hub weigh much the same as a normal hub and battery powered light, without that "oh, my lights run out of charge I can't ride" nightmare.
Up to 1 hour of light even when your bike is stopped!
Stand Light Technology | When you stop the Revo’s Stand Light provides ten minutes of light at 400 lumens running for up to an hour at a diminishing level. The retained energy allows you to quickly get up to full power when you start cycling again or get your tent up for a night in the wilderness.
*Charge your GPS and Phone from your Dynamo
Your HUNT SuperDura dynamo wheels and SONdelux hub can provide you with complete freedom from external power sources. The knowledgeable crew over at CyclingAbout.com have a great article - click here on neat devices to charge all manner of USB compatible items. Please note normal, non-dynamo specific lights cannot be connected directly to a dynamo, only lights such as the Exposure Revo Dynamo light will work as the alternating current (AC) requires specialist circuitry, normal lights charge from direct current (DC). Normal lights may be chargeable from one of the options in the CyclingAbout Article, please check compatability with the light and charging unit manufacturer first.

High-performance technology that will deliver you to your destination quickly every time. A strong and lightweight 6061-T6 heat-treated rim features an asymmetric shape which is inverted from front to rear to provide balanced higher spoke tensions meaning your spokes stay tight for the long term. The rim profile is true disc specific which allows higher-strength to weight as no reinforcement is required for a braking surface, it also looks stunning. The rim dimensions are extra wide at 25mm (20mm internal) which creates a great tyre profile with wider 25-50mm tyres, giving excellent grip and lower rolling resistance.
Spokes were a very important part of the equation and we have gone to town choosing a high spoke count 32 front and rear for durability. The spokes are top-of-the-range Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement (PSR) triple butted models which go from a 2.0-1.6-2.0-2.2 at the bend. Butted spokes are lighter but also provide a greater degree of elasticity and thus maintain spoke tensions longer and are more fatigue resistant. PSR spokes featured the 2.2 width at the spoke head providing more material in this high stress area. J-bend made sense for four season use as replacements are easy to find and we lace them two-cross for strength and brake force handling. To accompany these high-end spokes we selected brass nipples for our Hunt 4Season wheels. Brass is strong and corrosion resistant plus it has self-lubricating properties. As well as the standard square body we chose nipples with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning. Combining these components well is key and all Hunt wheels are hand-built and then tensioned by craftspeople who work in pairs to check and finish each other’s work.
Bearings are the heart of any wheel and investing in them makes huge sense so for the 4Season Disc hubs we went to Japanese bearing experts EZO and invested extra to spec their high-grade precision sealed cartridge bearings in our full range. Durability is a theme for Hunt wheels as time and money you spend fixing is time and money you can’t spend riding or upgrading your bikes. This is especially important for a 4Season bike you use regularly in harsh conditions. As a result all our Shimano freehub bodies have Steel Spline Insert re-inforcements to provide excellent durability against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.
Things are changing fast in the road and CX disc market so we have adaptability built-in. Hunt Disc wheels are seriously future-proof. The front hub axle comes with QR and 12mm adaptors as standard. Plus the rear hub can be adapted to 12-135/142 with the adaptor available separately in our spares section of the website. Disc fitment is also a potential headache for riders. As Shimano hydraulic brakes, with their impressive ice-tech rotors, are appearing on many new bikes, we wanted riders to have the option so we went even more adaptable with centre-lock hubs and 6 bolt adaptors included.
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 all our tubeless-ready wheels are also designed to work perfectly with clincher tyres and inner tubes.
H-Lock tubeless-ready rim bed profile. 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.
Internal cam quick-release skewers provide a secure fitting ideal for handling the forces from disc braking and they prevent dirt ingress to the cam faces keeping them smooth even in the poorest conditions. And of course, we went the whole hog and upgraded the QR springs to stainless steel so they don’t rust.
The consequence of the fanatic attention to detail is incredible durability and a resulting low 1939g gram wheelset weight.

Warranty, HUNT rolling road tests & weight limits
A full 2 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. For the HUNT SuperDura Dynamo wheels an extended 5 year warranty is also offered for the front Dynamo Hub only.
All HUNT wheels are rolling road tested for rider weight limits, please see here for more details. 120kgs is the upper recommended rider weight limit for these wheels. Please include the weight of any luggage in your total rider weight when choosing the correct wheels. If a rider is over 100Kgs then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly and it is advisable to use minimum 28 mm tyres at max 100psi as this will reduce the fatigue on the wheelset. We are cyclists ourselves and do of course go above and beyond to offer excellent service if you ever do experience any issues. We carry full spares at very reasonable prices and offer complete support.
