HUNT 50 Carbon Wide Aero Wheelset
HUNT 50Carbon Wide Aero | Road Wheelset
HUNT 50Carbon Wide Aero | Road 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 27mm (19mm internal) 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>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>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>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>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 or riding off-road.</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>Tires</h1><i>At HUNT, we enjoy the puncture resistance and grip benefits of tubeless on our every-day rides so we wanted to allow our customers the same option. Of course, all of our tubeless-ready wheels are designed to work perfectly with clincher tires and inner tubes too.</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>The consequence of the fanatical attention to detail is an outstandingly light 1537 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>
<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>

HUNT 50 Carbon Wide Aero Wheelset

50 Deep | 27 Wide | 1537g

ULTIMATE RACE WHEELSET. ULTRA-WIDE CUTTING EDGE RIM DESIGN. SUPER-STIFF. WIND-CHEATING. SCARY-FAST

50 Deep | 27 Wide | 1537g

The Purpose

These wheels are so aero, that we're free-wheeling in the pack whilst the others are pedalling. Going deep is obvious for aerodynamic performance. Add wide rims with a U-profile, and you get the addition of great handling and reduced drag across a wide range of yaw angles. Despite being a massive 27mm wide and 50mm deep, the rims are extremely light at only 498g each.

As used in UCI Continental level racing by the Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes pro team. Read More

We all want to go fast; that was the brief. The latest breed of tubeless tires give-up nothing in weight to their clincher counterparts and the Schwalbe One Pro, that you can have fitted by us prior to delivery, weighs only 250g for a 25mm tire (290 grams including 40 ml of sealant, while the Conti GP4sII folding tire with tubes weighs 320 grams). The tire rolling resistance of the Schwalbe Pro One Tubeless is reduced by 9.5% over their clincher version according to Schwalbe's own tests. Hence tubeless was essential.

The freehub body on the HUNT Sprint hubs used for the 50CWA is also upgraded with 48 teeth on the ratchet ring and multi-point pawls, providing super-fast 7.5 degree engagement for when the hammer goes down and you need to accelerate now! 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 so we specced large 15mm diameter hub axles for sprinting and out-of-saddle climbing. Ease into them, your mates won’t know it’s the wheels! Read Less

Tubeless Tire Fitting Option

We can fit tubeless tires (including sealant) to your wheels for free.

The wheels are also designed to work excellently with clincher tires and tubes. See tire fitting options here.

Maximum tire pressure for this rim is 120psi when used with an inner tube and 100psi when running the wheel set-up tubeless. Maximum tire pressures for other tire sizes: 30mm do not exceed 70psi, 33mm do not exceed 50psi, 35-45mm do not exceed 40psi, 46mm+ do not exceed 35psi. 100psi is more than enough for any rider on road. Please do not exceed the maximum pressure stated on your tire. Click here to listen to a podcast exploring the science of why lower pressures were found to be faster by pro teams.

      All HUNT wheels models have to pass our harsh cobbled-rolling-road tests for rider weight limits, please see here for more details100kgs is the upper recommended rider weight limit for these wheels. Please include the weight of any luggage in your total rider weight when choosing the correct wheels. If a rider is over 90Kgs then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly and it is advisable to use Tires at max 95psi as this will reduce the fatigue on the wheelset. We are cyclists ourselves and do of course go above and beyond to offer excellent service if you ever do experience any issues. We carry full spares at very reasonable prices and offer complete support.

      60 Day Ride & Return Period. We are certain you'll be impressed by the acceleration, low-weight, speed and durability of our wheels. We are cyclists and as such strive to offer class leading service and support. Buy with confidence, if for any reason you wish to return the wheels for a full refund of your order you can do so up to a full 60 days after you receive them whether they have been ridden or not. Please note we cannot offer refunds on wheels that have suffered from crash damage but do offer a crash replacement discount.

      NOTE: We are not able to control other brands brake pad compounds and we cannot test every possible brake pad so please use only our HUNT Brakco Griptec carbon specific rim brake pads with these wheels.
