The Purpose _

The 40 Carbon Aero Disc being used in a race by the LA Sweat Race Team

The Purpose _

Positioned between two popular Carbon Disc offerings (30
Carbon Disc and 50 Carbon Disc), the 40 Carbon Disc was built for riders
looking to upgrade their experience with quicker acceleration and lower
rotational weight on climbs and rolling terrain, while still benefitting from
the aerodynamic gains offered by a 40mm-deep, U-shaped carbon rim profile.

 

Updated with wider rim dimensions and an all-new ratchet hub system, the
40 Carbon Disc is optimized for 25mm-35mm tyres for fast road riding and
racing, increasingly popular all-road terrain, as well as gravel riding (ETRTO
compatible with tyres ranging from 25mm-55mm).

Tyres Info
HUNT recommends a 25-35mm tyre for best performance, tyre widths between 25mm and 50mm 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

Unidirectional carbon fibre rim construction, with 3k reinforcement at spoke holes for greater durability. The layup is comprised primarily of Toray T700 fibres which offer high impact resistance and flexibility. V:Absorb resin is blended in the carbon layering process, which cures at a lower temperature. Lower temperature resin reduces brittleness, resulting in greater impact resistance and more effective
vibration dampening.

Rim Surface

V:Absorb resin reduces vibration and massivelyimproves impact resistance. Disc brake rims are obviously not required tohandle the high temperatures induced by prolonged rim braking. We have made the most of this and used our new V:Absorb resin blends in the carbon layeringwhich cures at a lower temperature. Lower temperature resins are less brittlemeaning they have greater resistance to impacts and dampen vibration moreeffectively.

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.

Spokes

Hand-built with top-of-the-range, reinforced Pillar PSR triple butted J-bend spokes for durability. Triple butted spokes reduce weight and provide greater elasticity to maintain optimal tension and resist fatigue, with an increased 2.2mm diameter at the spoke head, providing more material in this high stress area, all leading to excellent durability and long spoke service life.

Bearings

Precision stainless steel cartridge bearings with waterproof grease specially selected for the worst weather.
