The Purpose _

<h1>Sprint SL Hubs</h1><i>All-new Sprint SL hubs featuring the same strength and power transfer in a lower weight package, meaning more of your power pushing you forwards. The hub shell is 6066 series alloy, offering a greater strength-to-weight ratio than lower 6000 series alloys. Large 15mm diameter hub axles for climbing and out-of-saddle sprinting responsiveness. Circular dropout interface steps ensure a secure fitment. </i>

The Purpose _

The HUNT 40 Carbon Gravel Race Disc wheelset was built to meet the needs of the gravel racer and rider. Wide and lightweight 40mm-deep hookless rims offer durability, quick acceleration and aerodynamic efficiency, intended for use with modern width gravel race tyres. Laced to our lighter Sprint SL hubs with rapid 7.5-degree engagement, the complete wheelset comes in under 1400 grams.

Wide, tubeless, ETRTO-compliant hookless rims, laced to reliable and fast-engaging Sprint SL hubs for a lightweight gravel-specific wheel system ready to go the distance in your next gravel race or fast ride.

Tyres Info
HUNT recommends a 40mm tyre for best performance, tyre widths between 29mm and 64mm 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. Only use tyres marked as compatible with hookless (TSS) rims. 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 _

Rim Profile

A strong and super-lightweight hookless rim. The rim dimensions are 40mm deep and 30mm wide external (25mm internal). Tubeless for lower weight, rolling resistance, and better puncture protection.

Sprint SL Hubs

All-new Sprint SL hubs featuring the same strength and power transfer in a lower weight package, meaning more of your power pushing you forwards. The hub shell is 6066 series alloy, offering a greater strength-to-weight ratio than lower 6000 series alloys. Large 15mm diameter hub axles for climbing and out-of-saddle sprinting responsiveness. Circular dropout interface steps ensure a secure fitment.

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 spoke head providing more material in this high stress area. The nipples come with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning. Combining these components well is key which is why all HUNT wheels are hand-built.

Freehub Body

Featuring 3x treble-tooth pawls 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 drive a consistent engagement. There is also a Steel Spline Insert re-enforcement to provide excellent durability against cassette sprocket damage.

Tyre Width Optimisation

25mm internal rim profile, featuring a hookless and ETRTO-compliant tubeless rim, designed exclusively for tubeless tyres.

Bearings

The heart of any wheel. Investing in them makes huge sense. We use high-grade precision smooth-rolling sealed cartridge bearings by EZO Japan.
