Hunt 50 Carbon Aero Disc SL Wheelset
Hunt 50 Carbon Aero Disc SL Front Wheel
Hunt 50 Carbon Aero Disc SL Rear Wheel
<h1>Rims</h1><i>The wide aero profile delivers excellent handling and speed. The evolution of disc brake specific construction has allowed massive weight savings over equivalent rim-brake rims. The removal of braking forces on the rim allows a strong but very light rim to be designed that can focus on its primary role of supporting the tire and spoke forces.</i>
<h1>Bearings</h1><i>High-grade precision smooth-rolling sealed cartridge bearings by Japanese experts EZO. This wheelset has three of the rear hub bearings upgraded to S&S low-friction LU/LB seals on the internal bearing face to further reduce rolling resistance whilst maintaining excellent sealing on the exposed faces.</i>
<h1>Freehub Body</h1><i>Featuring 3 multi-point pawls with 3 teeth each and a 48t ratchet ring. The result is a 7.5-degree engagement angle. All of our freehub bodies have Steel Spline Insert re-enforcements to provide excellent durability against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.</i>
<h1>Spokes</h1><i>Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement PSR XTRA models. These triple-butted bladed spokes are lighter but also provide a greater degree of elasticity, to maintain tensions longer and add fatigue resistance. PSR spokes feature the 2.2 width at the spoke head, providing more material in this high stress area. The nipples come with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning.</i>
<h1>Rim Bed</h1><i>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 tires. The H_LOCK profile also locks the beads in place more securely once seated. This is especially important when running lower pressures off road.</i>
<h1>Adaptability</h1><i>Our wheels are adaptable and future-proof. We can adapt your wheels to any current axle standard, you just need to let us know what you require by filling in the simple form on the confirmation page after checkout. Please note these wheels will not work with the older 15mm front road TA standard.</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>The consequence of the fanatical attention to detail is an outstandingly light 1429 gram wheelset weight. Gone are the days when having a disc-equipped road bike always resulted in a weight penalty. You can now float up the climbs, and then brake later than the others on the way back down!</i>
<h1>Tires</h1><i>As with all of our wheels, they are tubeless-ready. They also work perfectly with inner tubes.</i>

HUNT 50 Carbon Aero Disc SL Wheelset

50 Deep | 27 Wide Ext | 21 Wide Int | 1429g

GRAND TOUR STAGE-WINNING PERFORMANCE, IN AN UPDATED, LIGHTER AND WIDER PACKAGE.

50 Deep | 27 Wide Ext | 21 Wide Int | 1429g

The Purpose

Introducing the 50 Carbon Aero Disc SL. An evolved version of a HUNT best-seller and rider favourite, proven at the highest level of the sport, and now featuring our new Sprint SL hub laced to a lighter and wider rim.

The 50 Carbon Aero Disc SL benefits from a wide 27mm U-shaped rim, providing superior aerodynamic performance across multiple wind yaw-angles. The 21mm internal rim bed opens out your tire profile, increasing grip in the corners and reducing rolling resistance.

Straight pull hubs and bladed spokes reduce weight, add strength, and respond instantly to accelerations. The freehub body on the HUNT Sprint SL hub features 48 teeth on the ratchet ring, and treble-tooth pawls, providing incredible 7.5° engagement.

If you're looking for an aero wheel that can do it all, then you've found it.
