HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Wheelset
HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Front Wheel
HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Rear Wheel
<h1>Patented LIMITLESS Technology PT 1</h1><i>In order to create the most aerodynamic & stable shape for the tire, a rim bed of 22.5mm is needed. With the tire profile this creates, the ideal shape of the rim curves out to an external width of 35mm. To overcome the weight penalty associated with this, we use a (non-structural) low density expanding polymer insert, inside a channel carved out during pre-preg.</i>
<h1>Patented LIMITLESS Technology PT 2</h1><i>This is bonded to the carbon during the curing process, resulting in an exceptionally strong bond. The density of carbon is 1.6g per cubic centimetre, whereas the polymer insert weighs just 0.7g per cubic centimetre, resulting in a (rotational) mass loss of just over 50g per rim. This patented technology enables us to consider the limits of material properties, and smash right past them.</i>
<h1>CeramicSpeed Bearings</h1><i>The 48 Limitless Aero Disc will come fully equipped with CeramicSpeed's industry-leading hybrid ceramic bearings, even in the freehub body. All CeramicSpeed Balls are of the highest quality Grade 3 Silicon Nitride, featuring the highest achievable surface finish and roundness. The quality of the balls is what determines the performance and lifetime of a bearing. The CeramicSpeed Balls feature unparalleled impact strength, smoothness, roundness and brittleness.</i>
<h1>Freehub Body</h1><i>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. Includes 2 CeramicSpeed bearings in the body.</i>
<h1>Nipples</h1><i>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</i>
<h1>Wing Spokes</h1><i>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.</i>
<h1>Rim Profile</h1><i>Patented LIMITLESS technology allows for a 22.5mm rim bed and a huge 34.5mm external rim width, meaning the rim sits far wider than the tire for aerodynamic superiority.</i>

HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Wheelset

48 Deep | 35 Wide | 1582g | CeramicSpeed

The world's fastest disc-brake wheels up to (and including) 50mm.

48 Deep | 35 Wide | 1582g | CeramicSpeed

YOU ARE DRIVEN TO RIDE FASTER, WE ARE DRIVEN TO DEVELOP FASTER WHEELS FOR YOU.

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

Designed by HUNT Product Engineering Manager, Luisa Grappone (MSc Aerospace Engineering).

HUNT LIMITLESS technology (pending patent*) allows for low weight and extra-wide aerodynamics.

Fully compliant with new ETRTO tubeless road guidelines (yet to be released) for 23/25/28mm+ road tires. As with all our current HUNT rims, the LIMITLESS wheels have a normal hooked sidewall and are suitable for all clincher road tires including Continental.

CeramicSpeed’s world renowned low-friction bearings.

WIDER TIRES & WIDER WHEELS | RIDE FASTER

Leading rim-brake wheels have been at the 27-28mm wide mark for some time, with undisputed aero benefits over narrower designs. However, they are aerodynamically limited by rim brake calipers limiting the maximum width of the brake track. Further, most are optimised for narrower tires. 23mm tires used to be the standard… but for us, you and most pro riders, 25/28 and even 30mm tires are the preferred choice. Let’s face it: when leaning in on the final turn of a mass bunch sprint or descending sweeping alpine bends, you want serious grip! Plus, the lower rolling resistance benefits of 25 and 28mm tires* mean that road disc aero wheels should be specifically designed around these wider tires. Accordingly, this wheelset has been designed using schematics and feedback from Schwalbe's own engineers.
(*Especially rider-system benefits, wheel & tire only tests do not include rider damped losses, and how lower pressures reduce these losses by reducing rider movement. This is a whole other area we will be releasing scientific data on.)

HUNT Industry Leading Aero Knowledge

INDUSTRY-LEADING AERO KNOWLEDGE

We were ecstatic when Luisa Grappone (MSc Aerospace Engineering) approached us in 2017 about joining HUNT. Luisa’s experience in wind tunnel testing and developing wheels for 10 years (with World Tour pros from BMC Racing, Team Movistar & Cervelo Test Team) showed her industry-leading experience. So of course we welcomed Luisa to join us as HUNT Product Engineering Manager in August 2017. Using Luisa as our Engineering lead, Peter (Co-Founder & Materials Scientist), Tom (Co-Founder & Product Manager) and the whole team here set to work immediately to develop you the fastest ‘unlimited’ road disc-brake wheelset in the world!

HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Rim Width

HOW WIDE? 34.5mm!

In the last 9 months, road aero disc-brake rim widths have been creeping out to 30-32mm, with several leading wheel and bike companies realizing the benefits of having a rim wider than the tire (even a 28mm tire). This creates the most effective overall aerofoil shape (when considering the wheel and tire together) and reduces turbulence as airflow transitions into the spoke bed. It is now obvious that disc-brake road rims need to be significantly wider to be at their best aerodynamically. With our experience at HUNT, we knew disc brakes provided us a huge opportunity to smash open this area of wheel development. In autumn 2017, a full year before anyone knew about any other wheel companies’ 30mm+ development, we set about unleashing wheel widths, and Luisa designed several 3D-printed prototypes for wind tunnel testing. Luisa worked closely with Europe’s leading bicycle wind tunnel, and over 18 months of painstaking research, design and multiple wind tunnel visits, developed the 34.5mm wide shape for the new 48 Limitless Aero Disc.

HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Rim Profile

WIDE RIM = WEIGHT OR TIRE PROBLEM?

The aero benefits of going wide, can come with downsides, as usually a compromise choice has to be made:

- Go for a wider internal rim of 24 or 25mm = LOSE TIRE COMPATABILITY with 23/25mm tires from leading brands.

- Choose to add extra carbon material to thicken the sidewalls, in order to maintain the wide aero shape = HEAVY RIM WEIGHT

HUNT Limitless Patented Technology

THE SOLUTION | HUNT LIMITLESS TECHNOLOGY (PENDING PATENT)

The HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc rim has as much carbon-fibre material and mass as any other comparable road disc wheelset, and far surpasses ISO impact testing. Added to the sidewall area is an extra-strengthening co-molded low density polymer (density only 0.7g/cm3 vs carbon fibre prepreg of 1.6g/cm3) that keeps the weight low whilst allowing the extra width. LIMITLESS is a pending patent owned by HUNT and developed by Luisa, Tom and Pete, and is exclusive to HUNT wheels. So, you can have a wheelset with the world’s fastest aero shape but also impressively low weight.

THE RESULTS…

The wind tunnel data we recorded is shown against the full range of incumbent world-class aero wheels in the charts below. The results speak for themselves. It was amazing to see Luisa’s face when it became evident what we'd achieved for riders. It’s been hard work but it’s been very worthwhile. This process and the knowledge gained from pushing the boundaries of aero wheel development creates huge opportunities to serve you with a wide range of world leading aerodynamic wheels…this is just the beginning! Thank you.

THE DATA

Read the full research white paper showing all technical wind-tunnel testing method details, extensive wind tunnel data and the full range of wheels we tested against.

The Mavic WAD calculation is based around Time Trial speeds (45 km/h), we used this as an industry standard to show an unequivocal comparison. Our own road speed (35 km/h) simulations show the extra width of the LIMITLESS wheels provide even greater aerodynamic gains at the wider wind yaw angles that real road riders experience. Please see research white paper for more details.

8.4 Fourth wind tunnel test - June 2019

The Enve Ses AR 3.4 Disc wheelset was released in May 2019 – an additional test for this wheelset was arranged. In order to complete the test in a timely manner the tests were carried with the front wheels only, mounted on a single wheel turntable and roller, with no bike. Note that the total drag and power values are lower without the presence of a bike.

    YOU ARE DRIVEN TO RIDE FASTER, WE ARE DRIVEN TO DEVELOP FASTER WHEELS FOR YOU.

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

    Designed by HUNT Product Engineering Manager, Luisa Grappone (MSc Aerospace Engineering).

    HUNT LIMITLESS technology (pending patent*) allows for low weight and extra-wide aerodynamics.

    Fully compliant with new ETRTO tubeless road guidelines (yet to be released) for 23/25/28mm+ road tires. As with all our current HUNT rims, the LIMITLESS wheels have a normal hooked sidewall and are suitable for all clincher road tires including Continental.

    CeramicSpeed’s world renowned low-friction bearings.

    WIDER TIRES & WIDER WHEELS | RIDE FASTER

    Leading rim-brake wheels have been at the 27-28mm wide mark for some time, with undisputed aero benefits over narrower designs. However, they are aerodynamically limited by rim brake calipers limiting the maximum width of the brake track. Further, most are optimised for narrower tires. 23mm tires used to be the standard… but for us, you and most pro riders, 25/28 and even 30mm tires are the preferred choice. Let’s face it: when leaning in on the final turn of a mass bunch sprint or descending sweeping alpine bends, you want serious grip! Plus, the lower rolling resistance benefits of 25 and 28mm tires* mean that road disc aero wheels should be specifically designed around these wider tires. Accordingly, this wheelset has been designed using schematics and feedback from Schwalbe's own engineers.
    (*Especially rider-system benefits, wheel & tire only tests do not include rider damped losses, and how lower pressures reduce these losses by reducing rider movement. This is a whole other area we will be releasing scientific data on.)

    HUNT Industry Leading Aero Knowledge

    INDUSTRY-LEADING AERO KNOWLEDGE

    We were ecstatic when Luisa Grappone (MSc Aerospace Engineering) approached us in 2017 about joining HUNT. Luisa’s experience in wind tunnel testing and developing wheels for 10 years (with World Tour pros from BMC Racing, Team Movistar & Cervelo Test Team) showed her industry-leading experience. So of course we welcomed Luisa to join us as HUNT Product Engineering Manager in August 2017. Using Luisa as our Engineering lead, Peter (Co-Founder & Materials Scientist), Tom (Co-Founder & Product Manager) and the whole team here set to work immediately to develop you the fastest ‘unlimited’ road disc-brake wheelset in the world!

    HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Rim Width

    HOW WIDE? 34.5mm!

    In the last 9 months, road aero disc-brake rim widths have been creeping out to 30-32mm, with several leading wheel and bike companies realizing the benefits of having a rim wider than the tire (even a 28mm tire). This creates the most effective overall aerofoil shape (when considering the wheel and tire together) and reduces turbulence as airflow transitions into the spoke bed. It is now obvious that disc-brake road rims need to be significantly wider to be at their best aerodynamically. With our experience at HUNT, we knew disc brakes provided us a huge opportunity to smash open this area of wheel development. In autumn 2017, a full year before anyone knew about any other wheel companies’ 30mm+ development, we set about unleashing wheel widths, and Luisa designed several 3D-printed prototypes for wind tunnel testing. Luisa worked closely with Europe’s leading bicycle wind tunnel, and over 18 months of painstaking research, design and multiple wind tunnel visits, developed the 34.5mm wide shape for the new 48 Limitless Aero Disc.

    HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc Rim Profile

    WIDE RIM = WEIGHT OR TIRE PROBLEM?

    The aero benefits of going wide, can come with downsides, as usually a compromise choice has to be made:

    - Go for a wider internal rim of 24 or 25mm = LOSE TIRE COMPATABILITY with 23/25mm tires from leading brands.

    - Choose to add extra carbon material to thicken the sidewalls, in order to maintain the wide aero shape = HEAVY RIM WEIGHT

    HUNT Limitless Patented Technology

    THE SOLUTION | HUNT LIMITLESS TECHNOLOGY (PENDING PATENT)

    The HUNT 48 Limitless Aero Disc rim has as much carbon-fibre material and mass as any other comparable road disc wheelset, and far surpasses ISO impact testing. Added to the sidewall area is an extra-strengthening co-molded low density polymer (density only 0.7g/cm3 vs carbon fibre prepreg of 1.6g/cm3) that keeps the weight low whilst allowing the extra width. LIMITLESS is a pending patent owned by HUNT and developed by Luisa, Tom and Pete, and is exclusive to HUNT wheels. So, you can have a wheelset with the world’s fastest aero shape but also impressively low weight.

    THE RESULTS…

    The wind tunnel data we recorded is shown against the full range of incumbent world-class aero wheels in the charts below. The results speak for themselves. It was amazing to see Luisa’s face when it became evident what we'd achieved for riders. It’s been hard work but it’s been very worthwhile. This process and the knowledge gained from pushing the boundaries of aero wheel development creates huge opportunities to serve you with a wide range of world leading aerodynamic wheels…this is just the beginning! Thank you.

    THE DATA

    Read the full research white paper showing all technical wind-tunnel testing method details, extensive wind tunnel data and the full range of wheels we tested against.

    The Mavic WAD calculation is based around Time Trial speeds (45 km/h), we used this as an industry standard to show an unequivocal comparison. Our own road speed (35 km/h) simulations show the extra width of the LIMITLESS wheels provide even greater aerodynamic gains at the wider wind yaw angles that real road riders experience. Please see research white paper for more details.

    8.4 Fourth wind tunnel test - June 2019

    The Enve Ses AR 3.4 Disc wheelset was released in May 2019 – an additional test for this wheelset was arranged. In order to complete the test in a timely manner the tests were carried with the front wheels only, mounted on a single wheel turntable and roller, with no bike. Note that the total drag and power values are lower without the presence of a bike.
