Here at The Rider Firm, we’ve been asked before what makes our 4 Season wheels special. Sure, they’ve won awards for their design and durability, and have been found on builds of some of the most desirable all-road framesets in the world, but how do we actually identify wheelsets in our 4 Season range?

The philosophy behind the design of these wheels relies on two key tenets; the first of which is that all wheels HUNT design are purpose-focused (that is, with a specific usage in mind, rather than a price point). Secondly, we believe that buying winter-specific equipment should take the form of something slightly more than ‘just buy what’s cheap and heavy’. Many riders out there will take an old unused frame, slap on some cheap wheels and mudguards, and hit the road for the winter. While there is absolutely nothing inherently wrong with that (we’ve all been there and done it), there are increasingly many cyclists looking to equip themselves for winter riding with kit that is specifically designed for the task at hand. Just because you’re training in the winter, doesn’t mean you should do it slowly!

Our 4 Season wheels are characterised by a few different features, most of which are to be found in the hubs. We’ve spec’d high-grade, precision-sealed cartridge bearings from experts REVO Cream, with sealing on both faces (inner and outer) to ensure maximum protection from damage caused by water/grime ingress. Even the shapes of the hub shells are formed in such a way that water is directed away from the bearings. The freehub bodies have our H_CERAMIK coating which provides excellent durability and protects against cassette sprocket damage to the freehub often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies. Going further, our 4Season range utilise brass spoke nipples, for their strength and corrosion resistance, as well as their self-lubricating properties.

As well as all of the above, our 4 Season wheels come with the features you’d expect to see on every Hunt wheel: high quality Pillar spokes pulled from Swedish Sandvik steel, tubeless-ready wide rim profiles (for increased stability and comfort on wider tyres), a 3-year warranty, full spares packs (including spare spokes, valves and 6-bolt rotor adapters), QC checklist signed by the wheel-builder responsible for building the wheelset, and of course our 60-Day Ride & Return policy in case you need time to ensure your new wheels are the right fit for you!
