About Us

Hunt Bike Wheels | The Rider Firm

WHY 

The bike wheelsets we want to buy aren't easily available so we've made them.. Our hubs, spokes, rims, bearings and quick-releases are manufactured by leaders in each field and are then lovingly hand-built into outstanding wheels by experts with thousands of builds to their names.

THE CHASE

The wheels used for the vast majority of rides need to be fast, light weight, suitable for wider tyres, durable, easily serviceable and provide excellent braking performance. We have become strong advocates for tubeless technology. Having tested tubeless extensively on and off road we know it provides you with noticeably improved ride quality, grip and puncture protection. All our wheels come tubeless ready, but work perfectly with standard tyres and tubes, and provide excellent specs, long-term durability and low weight. Plus you're future-proofed if you want to go tubeless later. Of course, the wheels have to look stunning yet sophisticated too. We don't spec down to a price point we just create the best wheels for each type of riding.

THE PLAN

Our wheels are available to purchase directly here at HuntBikeWheels.com. We invest more in the details and significantly increase the specification of each component so HUNT wheels provide maximum performance to you the rider. Our direct customer service means you will always be able to speak to a person and access the parts and servicing you need fast. Above all we want to create wheels and provide service you depend on, and allow you to perform to the highest level day-in day-out. We would love to hear how we can help you ride further and faster.


Hand-built by real master wheel builders

Wheels being hand-built and finished by Mr. Hao-Cheng at our wheel building partner. He has built and finely tensioned tens of thousands of wheels for leading high-end brands during his many years as a master wheel builder.

All our wheels go through a two person build and finishing process. Every wheelset then has a full quality control inspection where all features of the build are checked. Your wheels are then signed off personally by the builder on the individual control card which is supplied in the box. They show huge pride and passion in their work.

Hub Manufacturing

Hub Manufacturing

Hub Manufacturing

A hub body on the impressive precision machinery. We never tire of watching these incredible tools create beautiful components. We test, specify and develop all our products in the UK and we also further our wheel designs with British project engineers.

All our suppliers, including our hub manufacturers, are based in Taiwan. Taiwan is an incredible country with entrepreneurial drive and excellent engineering knowledge, not to mention they are a very friendly, welcoming and polite culture. As you may well already know, over the past three decades the country has focused on becoming the leader in cycling production technology. Taiwan is now widely recognized in the bicycle industry as the place to manufacture high-end bicycle components competitively. If you own a performance bicycle built with leading brand components, the chances are, the vast majority of the parts were made by passionate craftsmen and women at Taiwanese companies. We aspire to create the best performance wheels for your money, for now Taiwan has the technical capabilities to achieve this aim.

Rim Technology

Superlight Niobium aluminium alloy rims ready for anodizing and then brake track machining at one of our rim suppliers. We have used our industry knowledge and links to source components and wheel technologies that really push the performance boundaries. Niobium aluminium alloy is a proprietary material which has been developed by our rim supplier. Niobium aluminium alloy uses an advanced T10 heat-treatment process and delivers outstanding weight, stiffness and durability meaning rims can be wider for 25 and 28mm tyres, deeper for better aero performance and yet remain super-light for excellent climbing and acceleration.

Spokes

Our Hunt name is a play on the thrill and excitement of ‘The Chase’ we all love when riding, however it actually originated from the drive we have to ‘Hunt’ for every improvement in the rims, hubs, spokes, bearings, nipples and QRs we choose. The precision double contact sealed bearings by EZO Japan and Pillar’s high-spec spokes are great examples. The Pillar spokes we specify on all Hunt wheels are the top of the range triple-butted round and aero versions. They are cold-drawn from Swedish Sandvik Stainless Steel T302 wire and feature Pillar’s patented PSR spoke head re-enforcement. PSR spokes are butted again just before the spoke head providing more material in this high stress area. These spokes cost more but the triple butting provides a great ride and the PSR adds extra durability over standard spokes. Pillar Racing Spokes are trusted by many leading brands in the high-performance cycle sector, you can read more at www.PillarSpoke.com
