The Purpose _

<h1>Rims</h1><i>The Race Aero SuperDura has a 24mm wide and 31mm deep rounded profile rim from Niobium enriched alloy. Niobium alloy is a proprietary material and uses an advanced T10 heat-treatment process. The process delivers outstanding weight, stiffness and durability meaning rims can be wider for 25 and 28mm tyres, deeper for better aero performance, light for excellent climbing and acceleration and capably handle the increased loads and torque that more powerful riders can dish out.</i>

The Purpose _

The race wheelset for riders up to 130kg, inspired by and developed alongside Hunt OpenDev team member (and ex-pro Leicester Tigers rugby player) Will Johnson.

Speed and strength in equal measure.

Tyres Info
HUNT recommends a 25-28mm tyre for best performance, tyre widths between 22mm and 47mm are also safe to use.  Note: best performance is usually gained by using tyre pressures lower than the maximum, you can see our blog post about this, read here. Tubeless-ready for lower weight and rolling resistance. You must not exceed the maximum tyre pressure limits set out in the table below or the maximum limit set by your tyre manufacturer if this is lower.

HIGH SPECIFICATION COMPONENTS _

Rims

The Race Aero SuperDura has a 24mm wide and 31mm deep rounded profile rim from Niobium enriched alloy. Niobium alloy is a proprietary material and uses an advanced T10 heat-treatment process. The process delivers outstanding weight, stiffness and durability meaning rims can be wider for 25 and 28mm tyres, deeper for better aero performance, light for excellent climbing and acceleration and capably handle the increased loads and torque that more powerful riders can dish out. The wheelset utilises our strongest rim material in the tried and tested profile from our Race Aero Wide wheels. We've added even more width (24mm external and 19 internal) and depth (31mm) for extra grip, comfort, low aero drag and low rolling resistance advantage. It's also important to note that widening the rim increases the air volume for any given tyre size thus creating better shock absorption which is especially useful for higher loading/more powerful riders.

Rim Bed

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 tyres. 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.

Hubs

The hubs on the Race Aero SuperDura benefit from larger 12mm front and 15mm rear axles. This combined with them being machined from hard and strong 7075-T6 heat treated alloy means that they easily withstand the higher loads created by larger riders. Plus the cold forged then CNC machined hub shell means the metal grain structure is ideally aligned to handle the high spoke loads, the work hardening from the cold forging also adds extra strength.

Wheel Build

Combining these components well is key and all Hunt wheels are hand-built. Build tensions are measured precisely and the radial front wheel handles steering and weight loading forces while the 3 cross rear creates a wheel that delivers drive torque effectively to the rim whilst also increasing the amount of hub-flange material supporting the head of each spoke which makes them even more resistant to long term high load fatigue.

Freehub Body

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.

SPOKES

28 front and 32 at the rear, vastly reduces the fatigue on each spoke, and each spoke hole at the hub and rim, as the rider load is spread over many more spokes. We chose the top-of-the-range Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement PSR XTRA models. These butted blade aero 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 head providing more material in this high stress area.

NIPPLES

Lightweight alloy nipples are the right decision to make for a high-performance wheelset where weight matters, plus we use longer 14mm nipples to provide great strength and a long thread connection with the spokes. The nipples also feature square bodies with a hex head to allow ease of tensioning and maintenance.

BEARINGS

The heart of any wheel. Investing in them makes huge sense which is why we chose TPI. Their high-grade precision sealed cartridge bearings are trusted by many of the world's leading engineering, cycling and automotive companies. The bearings we specced in the SuperDura wheels are upgraded to LU/LB seals which are low-friction sealed on the internal bearing face, to reduce rolling resistance and increase your speed, whilst providing maximum double contact sealing on the exposed faces.

Skewers

The little details matter, the Hunt Race Aero SuperDura quick-release skewers use brass for the cam which has self lubricating properties and we have even have upgraded to stainless steel springs so they don't rust. The quick-releases are designed and tested to exceed 1000kg of tensile breaking force.

What's in the box _

  • Front wheel and Rear Wheels with HUNT Black Shield tubeless tape fitted
  • Pair quick-releases
  • Cassette spacer for 8/9/10 speed

WARRANTY_

A full 3 years from purchase date warranty is offered to the original purchaser only on all Hunt bike wheels against material or workmanship defects, please click here to read full details.
