34 mm 26 mm 20 mm 700c

The wheelset that redefined what's possible with Aerodynamically optimized alloy rims. Applying years of wind tunnel research to the most advanced aluminum rim shaping capabilities, we've created the fastest alloy disc-brake wheelset available.Updated with Sprint SL hubs to reduce weight, while offering quick 7.5 degree engagement and steadfast reliability. Whether training, racing, or riding, these wheels won't slow or let you down.

Tyre size: Aero optimized for 25 to 28mm tyres; work well with 23mm up to 40mm.

"One of the best-value mid-priced alloy performance wheelsets"

The Purpose _

The Purpose _

Designed by HUNT's in-house engineering team, HUNT is proud to introduce the 34 Aero Wide Disc - the world's fastest alloy disc-brake wheelset.

Everything we learned when pushing what is aerodynamically possible with a carbon disc-brake wheelset, has been  applied to an alloy model that embodies the same philosophy: be the absolute fastest drop-bar wheelset.

Wind tunnel proven against world leading wheels. See the 34AWD test report for full technical details of our wind tunnel testing methodology, including data/graphs and the full range of wheels we tested against.

Tyres Info
HUNT recommends a 28mm tyre for best performance, tyre widths between 22mm and 47mm are also safe to use.  Note: best performance is usually gained by using tyre pressures lower than the maximum, you can see our blog post about this, read here. Tubeless-ready for lower weight and rolling resistance. You must not exceed the maximum tyre pressure limits set out in the table below or the maximum limit set by your tyre manufacturer if this is lower.

HIGH SPECIFICATION COMPONENTS _

Rims

The broad shape and large radius spoke bed profile (developed by HUNT's in-house engineering team for the LIMITLESS project allows excellent transfer of airflow from tyre to the rim and then around the spoke bed to ensure low aerodynamic drag at a wide range of yaw angles. To achieve the wide profile, yet also create a lightweight 1548g high performance wheelset, 6069-T6 alloy was the right choice. It has a 69% higher Ultimate Tensile Strength (480 Mega Pascals), than the 6061-T6 alloy (280 MPa) often used in performance road rims.

RIM BED

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.

Wing Spokes

After considerable testing across multiple spoke types (including analysis against competitor spokes), we found that the aerofoil profile of Pillar's Wing 20 spokes offer even further aerodynamic advantages over flat/bladed options.

Nipples

Despite designing a wheelset with aerodynamic supremacy in mind, serviceability and usability has always been a core philosophy of how we put wheels together. External spoke nipples are absolutely the right choice with this in mind, especially when running tubeless tyres as you would have to remove the tubeless tape to access the nipples were they to be internal.

Bearings

The heart of any wheel. Investing in them makes huge sense. We use high-grade precision smooth-rolling sealed cartridge bearings. This wheelset has three of the rear hub bearings upgraded to low-friction LU/LB seals on the internal bearing face to further reduce rolling resistance whilst maintaining excellent sealing on the exposed faces.

Freehub Body

Featuring 3 multi-point pawls with 3 teeth each and a 48t ratchet ring. The result an impressively low 7.5 deg engagement angle. Durability is a theme for HUNT, and so 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.

WARRANTY_

A full 3 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.

All HUNT wheels models have to pass our harsh cobbled-rolling-road tests for rider weight limits, please see here for more details. Max system weight 115 kg (system weight – total weight of fully kitted up rider, bike and luggage). If the system is over 100 kg then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly.
