HIGH SPECIFICATION COMPONENTS _

Rims

Ultralight 30mm deep tubular rim with 26mm width, optimized for 23-28c tubular tyres. Developed with input from Andy Feather, 2022 British National Hill Climb Champion. Disc-specific tubular profile. Important; please note these are for Tubular tyres only and will not work with normal Clincher or Tubeless tyres.

Tubular

Suitable for use with tubular tyres only. These wheels are not compatible with tubeless or clincher tyres

Hubs

HUNT H_Ratchet UD SL hubs,9-degree/40-tooth ratchet drive, with extruded 6066 alloys. Easily removable end caps and freehub body for quick and easy maintenance.

WEIGHT

The consequence of the fanatical attention to detail is an outstandingly light 964-gram wheelset weight. Your acceleration and climbing will be super-charged. There are no other wheels specifically designed for the demands of British Hill Climbs, that deliver like the Hill Climb SL.

UD Carbon Spokes

TaperLock UD carbon spokes offer up to a 30% increase in lateral responsiveness compared to steel equivalents. Only 2.7g per spoke and yet can handle tightening forces of ~450kgf per spoke. Owing to the TaperLock technology, these spokes can be trued using a spoke key from inside the rim bed. Responsiveness that delivers your power to the road as effectively as possible.

Freehub Body

A drilled out high-strength axle and freehub body (Shimano HG) for further weight reduction. The HG freehub body includes the HUNT signature anti-bite steel insert for protection against cassette gouging, with alloy splines removed to save precious grams.

Adaptability

Our wheels are seriously future proof. We can adapt your wheels to any current axle standard on the market, you just need to let us know what your requirements are by filling in the simple form on the confirmation page after checkout.
