HUNT Team 5580 Carbon Wide Tubular Wheelset
HUNT Team 5580 Carbon Wide Tubular Wheelset
HUNT Team 5580 Carbon Wide Tubular Wheelset
<h1>Rims</h1><i>A strong and seriously wide yet lightweight carbon rim, with an aero-rounded profile for excellent handling and speed. The extra friction Griptec brake-track provides excellent braking, on even the longest descents and in the wet. The rim dimensions are wide at 25mm which creates a great tyre profile, resulting in excellent grip and lower rolling resistance.</i>
<h1>Rim Surface</h1><i>High TG resin provides extremely reliable braking and durability for longer descents. We lab test all our rims to very high braking temp (200 C) to push their limits. The high temp resins used for our Griptec Braking surfaces and rims are designed and perform to extremely high levels of braking heat build-up. We also ride test our rim brake wheels in the Alps to ensure the wheels are put through their paces on long, steep and fast descents.</i>
<h1>Bearings</h1><i>The heart of any wheel. Investing in them makes huge sense. We use high-grade precision sealed cartridge bearings by Japanese experts EZO, and this wheelset even has low-friction seals to further reduce rolling resistance.</i>
<h1>Freehub Body</h1><i>Featuring a 3 multi-point pawls with 3 teeth each and a 48 tooth ratchet ring results in an impressively low 7.5 degree engagement angle and excellent resistance to wear under heavy loads. The Sprint freehub has strong individual pawl springs which engage quicker. There is also a Steel Spline Insert re-enforcement to provide excellent durability against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.</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>Hubs</h1><i>Precision machined straight pull hubs and spokes add strength and enhance power transfer meaning all your force pushes you forwards. Large 15mm diameter hub axles for sprinting and out-of-saddle climbing responsiveness. Circular dropout interface steps add extra stiffness.</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>Weight</h1><i>The consequence of the fanatical attention to detail is an outstandingly light 1498 gram wheelset weight in a lightning fast stiff aero package. We've enjoyed free wheeling in the pack whilst all others are pedalling, is it cheating?</i>

HUNT Team 5580 Carbon Wide Tubular Wheelset

55/80 Deep | 25 Wide | 1498g

Ultimate Aero/TT/Sprint Race Tubular Option, Designed for Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes (UCI Continental) Pro Team

55/80 Deep | 25 Wide | 1498g

The Purpose

The Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes (UCI Continental) pro team are racing and training on our tubeless-ready clincher wheelsets. However, for the biggest races tubular rims were needed - they provide the ability for the riders to keep rolling whilst waiting for their service car in the event of a puncture so we specified tubular rims for the 5580CWT. The 5580 is the choice for flat races, TTs and the preference of the team’s sprinters & fast men, such as Chris Opie and Rory Townsend. Read More

We all want to go fast; that was the brief. Going deep is obvious for aero gains, wide rims with a U-profile provide great handling and reduce drag across multiple wind yaw-angles. Durability is also essential for the rough and tumble of pro racing and the 5580CWT rims deliver with strong Toray unidirectional carbon fibre for the sidewall construction and 3K weave for strength in multiple directions at the rim bed and spoke holes.

The differentiated front 55 and rear 80 provide a great balance for high velocity riding with predictable handling. The super-deep rear wheel provides extra aero gains for TTs and incredible stiffness/acceleration for putting the power down when sprinting.

The freehub body on the HUNT Sprint hub features 48 teeth on the ratchet ring, and treble-tooth pawls, providing incredible 7.5 degree engagement. Perfect for when the hammer goes down and you need an instant response. The strong individual leaf spring pawls are louder than circular spring set-ups but we think that is the right decision to make for this type of wheelset. Also, stiffness = Speed, especially when sprinting for the win, and the Sprint hubs have large 15mm diameter hub axles for sprinting and out-of-saddle climbing. Read Less
