HUNT to partner with Team Qhubeka ASSOS

Africa's only WorldTour professional cycling team, formerly known as NTT Pro Cycling, will reappear in 2021 as Team Qhubeka ASSOS, with a bolstered roster of motivated riders looking to make an impact within the sport and beyond.

HUNT are thrilled to announce our partnership with the team, marking our first step into the WorldTour and the next stage of serving riders across the globe. The team has achieved incredible success over the years, racing as MTN Qhubeka, Dimension Data, and NTT Pro Cycling. We're excited to join Doug Ryder's project at a time that sees them take the next step on their journey and continue to highlight their purpose: to change lives through bicycles. It's an honour and a privilege to partner with a team making a difference to the world in ways so much bigger than bike racing.

The team will use various models and configurations of HUNT wheels for racing and training throughout the 2021 and 2022 seasons. Leveraging the feedback and expertise from some of the best riders in the world, we can develop and refine our wheels to a level that meets the demands placed on them by competition at the very highest level, resulting in even better products for HUNT riders.
“I am really excited about this partnership with HUNT wheels as they emerge into the WorldTour of cycling through our team. Their wheels have had excellent reviews and as a company they do everything they can to hunt for the best products to give us all the best riding experience possible.

As a team we are looking forward to representing the brand as we hunt for victories across the whole WorldTour season whilst providing feedback to continuously improve the product and be better together.”

Douglas Ryder (Team Principal – Team Qhubeka ASSOS)
“On behalf of our team at HUNT, we’re honored to provide technical support for Team Qhubeka ASSOS. The Rider Firm is made up of passionate cyclists, and so there is a palpable buzz of excitement inside the company. We embrace the challenge of delivering wheels to deliver at the highest level of the sport we love so dearly.

Beyond the program’s incredible racing success over the years, we were drawn to the core purpose of the team; promoting the Qhubeka organization’s mission to change lives through bicycles. To have the opportunity to partner with a team who exist to provide a tangible positive social impact, is humbling.

HUNT strives to constantly improve and develop our products, and will utilize the input and feedback from the immensely talented riders and staff testing our wheels at the highest level of the sport, in order to better serve riders around the world.”
