HUNT 36 Carbon Wide Aero
These are seriously fast wheels for seriously undulating terrain, ideal for long climbs and descents but with great all-round aero performance for rolling terrain too. The 27mm rim width opens out your tire profile providing incredible grip, low rolling resistance and superior aerodynamic performance. As used by the Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes UCI Continental pro team.
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 Pro One, that you can have fitted by us prior to delivery, weighs only 250g for a 25mm tire (290 grams including 40 millilitres of sealant, while the Continental GP4000SII tire with tubes weighs 320 grams). The tire rolling resistance of the new Schwalbe Pro One Tubeless is reduced by 9.5% over their clincher version according to Schwalbe's own tests! Hence tubeless was essential. Going deep is obvious for aero gains, wide rims with a U-profile provide great handling and reduce drag across multiple wind yaw-angles.
The freehub body on the HUNT Sprint hub features 48 teeth on the ratchet ring, and treble-tooth pawls, providing incredible 7.5 degree engagement. Perfect for when the hammer goes down and you need an instant response. The strong individual leaf-sprung 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!. Float up the climbs too, thanks to a sub 1500g bench-mark weight, is this even fair?
