HUNT 44 UD Carbon Spoke Disc Wheelset

1352g Depth Width ext Width int size
44 mm 29 mm 20 mm 700c

A mid-depth, lightweight go-to road wheelset for devoted all-around riders and racers, made even lighter by hand-lacing UD carbon spokes to HUNT Sprint SLC hubs for quick, 7.5 degree engagement, rapid acceleration and low rolling resistance.

The wind tunnel-developed 44mm Aerodynamicist profile reduces drag and shrugs off crosswind inputs with its wide, blunt profile.

Tyre size: Aero optimized for 25 to 28mm tyres; work well with 23mm up to 40mm.

VELO NEWS 4.5/5 REVIEW

"I like these wheels a lot, for one simple reason: They offer almost all of the benefits of a high-end race wheel at a much lower price than the competition."

The Purpose _

The HUNT 44 UD Carbon Spoke Disc Wheelset being used on the road, with Max Stedman utilising the Carbon Spokes to maximise his speed

The Purpose _

Introducing the 44 UD Carbon Spoke Disc, utilising our proven TaperLock carbon spoke technology, resulting in fully serviceable carbon-spoked wheels that can be trued like any other. With significant increases in lateral stiffness (see testing info below), they have been engineered to provide a stiffness-to-weight ratio previously unseen on serviceable wheels.

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 _

Aerodynamicist Rim Profile

As learned from our Limitless Research project & consistent wind tunnel time across the past 2 years, we know that an optimum aerodynamic benefit for a drop-bar bike is yielded from widening rim profiles. The reasons for this is that it allows for a far more 'blunted' spoke bed area, which (depending on which part of the wheel you're looking at) is both the leading and trailing edge. The benefits of blunted spoke bed areas revolve primarily around the predictable airflow, with the wind ‘hugging’ the rim as it passes across it (as opposed to older style V-shaped rims, which would create turbulence in the form of stalls). The wider profile ensures the flow stays attached to the surface as long as possible before the point of separation, which is key as yaw angles increase..

Rim Bed

Designed around a 20mm internal rim width optimised for a 25c tyre (but will of course work without compromise with both 23c and 28c tyres). They feature a hooked tyre retention design and are both fully ETRTO-compatible and tubeless-ready.

Taperlock Sprint SLC Hubs

Carbon spoke optimised TaperLock SPRINT hubs add strength and enhance power transfer meaning all your force pushes you forwards. Large 15mm diameter hub axles for sprinting and out-of-saddle climbing responsiveness. Circular dropout interface steps add extra stiffness.

UD Carbon Spokes

Incredibly strong (achieving over 450kgf per spoke) TaperLock UD carbon spokes offering 30% increase in stiffness against steel ones. Only 2.7g per spoke. Due to the TaperLock technology, these spokes can be trued easily using a spoke key from within the rim bed.

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.

STIFFNESS-TO-WEIGHT

With significant increases in lateral stiffness, they have been engineered to provide a stiffness-to-weight ratio previously unseen on serviceable wheels. Coming in at just 1352g but with significant increases in lateral responsiveness, disc wheels have never been so fast.

Tyre Width Optimisation

Designed around a 20mm internal rim width optimised for a 25c tyre (but will of course work without compromise with both 23c and 28c tyres). They feature a hooked tyre retention design and are both fully ETRTO-compatible and tubeless-ready.

WARRANTY_

These wheels come with H_CARE (Free Lifetime Crash Replacement) for the first owners. Read all about it here.

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

All HUNT wheels models have to pass our harsh cobbled-rolling-road tests for rider weight limits, please see here for more details. Max system weight 125kg (system weight – total weight of fully kitted up rider, bike and luggage). If a rider is over 105Kgs then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly.
