You can now have Hutchinson Sector 28 tubeless tyres and sealant fitted to your Hunt wheels.
Retail price (SRP) for these tyres is £140 per pair including fitting and sealant.
The Hutchinson Sector 28 tyre was developed alongside the Europcar professional cycling team to take on the brutal Paris-Roubaix cobbled classic. The tyre is tough enough to with stand the incredibly rough cobbled surfaces and provides enough grip for both dry dusty corners and wet muddy corners alike. These characteristics make it a fantastic tyre for use during the wet conditions found in the European winter. Coupled with the enhanced puncture resistance offered by tubeless these tyres are hard to beat for wet and winter riding.

Here is what Hutchinson say about the Sector tyre:
Sector 28 was developped for professional teams competing at the Paris-Roubaix Classic. This is a large section 28mm competition tire that excels on rough roads, cobblestones and gravel conditions. Weighing in at only 295 grams, it's efficient and has a low rolling resistance despite its 28mm profile. It does require sealant (Protect'Air Max) to be air-tight. The tread is a slick on top with slightly grooved sidewalls. The dual compound tread offers efficiency when on top of the tire and excellent grip when cornering. It's round profile makes for a very predictable handling tire.
Fitting and Sealant
We will fit your tyres to your Hunt wheels prior to dispatch. Valves will be fitted, hand tightened and sealed around the valve base with a small amount of latex sealant. We fill the tyres with between 35 and 60ml of tubeless sealant (depending on tyre size) and the beads are fully mounted. We then run a small amount of sealant around the beads for quick and long lasting sealing. The tyres are inflated to maximum pressure and we then maneuver and rotate them to ensure sealant is dispersed well and a good seal all around the tyre is achieved. Your wheels and tyres are then left for several hours and checked for air leakage. Once everything is sealed correctly we lower the pressures to 50 psi for shipping and off they go. You receive your wheels and tyres set up and ready to go for hundreds, if not thousands, of miles of hassle free, low-rolling resistance, puncture-sealing riding.
