HUNT XC Wide MTB Wheelset
Hunt XCWide MTB Wheelset
Hunt XCWide MTB Wheelset
<h1>Rims</h1><i>The XC Wide rim strikes the perfect balance between durability and performance making sure every ride is better than the last. The 6066 T6 alloy (welded) rim features a 25mm internal width to provide support during hard cornering or when throttling through techy sections. Optimized for 2.1"-2.35" tires, the XCWide won't hold you back.</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>Mountain bikers aren't concerned about weight, right? Nope! Whether you're doing a back-country epic or pedalling between stages, we have paid attention to weight to suit the type of riding they will be subjected too. For example, using the highest quality Pillar triple butted spokes with PSR (Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement) has allowed us to not only create a stronger wheel with a higher spoke count, but one which does not add a weight penalty.</i>
<h1>Front Hub</h1><i>Suited to match the needs of the modern trail bike rider. Featuring durable bearings and 7075-T6 series alloy axles to increase stiffness. These hubs have been selected based on their ability to perform on the most aggressive trails.</i>
<h1>Freehub Body</h1><i>Durability is a theme for HUNT as time and money you spend fixing is time and money you cannot spend riding or upgrading your bikes. As a result, we've developed the <em>H_CERAMIK</em> coating to provide excellent durability and protect against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.</i>
<h1>Spokes</h1><i>We have chosen top of the line, triple butted Pillar Spokes with increased reinforcement at the spoke head. Not only are these spokes extremely lightweight, they are also able to provide a greater degree of elasticity when put under increased stress. The Pillar Spoke Reinforcement (PSR) puts more material at the spoke head, just before the J-Bend to prevent failure in this stress area.</i>
<h1>Rim Bed</h1><i>Like all of our wheels, the Hunt MTB line-up is designed to be used as a tubeless system. Featuring a H-Lock rim bead with 'up-kicks' to the shoulders of the rim bed secures your tyre when seated. This prevents side-to-side movement reducing the chance of burping your tyre. It creates a great rim-well seal for first installation and easy sealing of tubeless tyres. Still haven't made the switch? All our wheels are tube compatible as well.</i>
<h1>In the Box</h1><ul><li>Black Shield PET high tensile strength tubeless tape fitted to wheels.</li><li>Freehub fitted</li><li>Tubeless Valves</li><li>HUNT spoke key for hex and square fitment</li><li>Spare of each spoke plus nipples</li><li>Quality control card signed by your wheel builder</li></ul>
<h1>Made for where you ride</h1><i>From the local trails, to a remote piece of trail highup in a remote mountain range; we wanted to create a series of wheelsets tailored for your Trail riding.</i>
<h1>Made for how you ride</h1><i>Enhanced to perfectly compliment your riding, the XC Wide is for those rides which you don't want to end.</i>
