HUNT TrailWide MTB Wheelset
HUNT Trail Wide MTB 29 Wheelset
HUNT Trail Wide MTB 29 Wheelset
<h1>Rims</h1><i>The TrailWide rim includes details that are high on the durability factor to make sure you finish every ride with a big grin. Designed for 2.3"-2.5" tyres, the 30mm internal rim provides support to the tyre when you drop into in a root strewn shoot or you're throttling down a high-speed section and folding a tyre is the last thing you need to happen!</i>
<h1>Weight</h1><i>Mountain bikers aren't concerned about weight, right? Nope! Whether you're doing a back-country epic or pedalling between stages, we have paid attention to weight to suit the type of riding they will be subjected too. For example, using the highest quality Pillar triple butted spokes with PSR (Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement) has allowed us to not only create a stronger wheel with a higher spoke count, but one which does not add a weight penalty.</i>
<h1>Rear Hub</h1><i>We create wheels to match the needs of riders who want the most from their wheels. The Trail Wide hubs have been chosen to increase stiffness, bearing durability and overall strength of your wheelset. On the rear, the RapidEngage MTB hubs with a fast 5 degree engagement, means you will be able to clear those janky tech climbs with ease.</i>
<h1>Front Hub</h1><i>Suited to match the needs of the modern trail bike rider. Featuring durable bearings and 7075-T6 series alloy axles to increase stiffness. These hubs have been selected based on their ability to perform on the most aggressive trails. </i>
<h1>Spokes</h1><i>We have chosen top of the line, triple butted Pillar Spokes with increased reinforcement at the spoke head. Not only are these spokes extremely lightweight, they are also able to provide a greater degree of elasticity when put under increased stress. The Pillar Spoke Reinforcement (PSR) puts more material at the spoke head, just before the J-Bend to prevent failure in this stress area.</i>
<h1>Rim Profile</h1><i>Like all of our wheels, the Hunt MTB line-up is designed to be used as a tubeless system. Featuring a H-Lock rim bead with 'up-kicks' to the shoulders of the rim bed secures your tyre when seated. This prevents side-to-side movement reducing the chance of burping your tyre. It creates a great rim-well seal for first installation and easy sealing of tubeless tyres. Still haven't made the switch? All our wheels are tube compatible as well.</i>
<h1>Freehub Body</h1><i>Choose between SRAM/Shimano 8/9/10/11 or SRAM XD to be fitted to your TrailWide Wheels.</i>
<h1>In the Box</h1><ul><li>Black Shield PET high tensile strength tubeless tape fitted to wheels.</li><li>Freehub fitted</li><li>Tubeless Valves</li><li>Spare of each spoke plus nipples</li><li>Quality control card signed by your wheel builder</li></ul>
<h1>Made for where you ride</h1><i>From the local trails, to a remote piece of trail highup in a remote mountain range; we wanted to create a series of wheelsets tailored for your Trail riding.</i>
<h1>Made for how you ride</h1><i>Enhanced to perfectly compliment your riding, the TrailWide is for those 'first out, last in' type of riders.</i>
<h1>Dream Build</h1><i>Samuel Johnson's custom build Privateer 141 with Hunt Trail Wides</i>

HUNT Trail Wide MTB 29 Wheelset

29" | 30mm Wide Int. | 1831g

The Trail Wide is your go-to wheelset no matter the conditions. Optimised to still take the A-lines on the descents and not hold you back on the climbs.

29" | 30mm Wide Int. | 1831g

The Purpose

After almost three years of unwavering service on the toughest trails, with numerous awards and recognitions along the way, the restless design team at HUNT saw an opportunity to update the Trail Wide wheelset to meet the evolving demands of today’s riders.

Starting with what we learnt around profile optimisation from the burlier Enduro Wide V2 project, we set out to improve upon its lighter sibling, not an easy task with an Editor’s Choice-winning wheelset.

Combining the all-new 30mm internal rim profile, with new hubs and spoke configurations, results in a wheel that keeps the outward appearance of it's predecessor yet provide 20% more impact resistance.

Designed as the answer to your trail centre weekends, back country epics or days spent smashing through your local woods - a wheelset that can do it all and leave you with a big grin.

Please include the weight of any luggage in your total rider weight when choosing the correct wheels.

      Schwalbe Hans Dampf Snake Skin Tubeless Tyres

      Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35" Snake Skin Soft Front / Rear

      The Hans Dampf is one of the most balanced tyres out there. Providing superior control on rough terrain as well as amazing grip in flowy singletrack, the Hans Dampf is the best kind of all-rounder. The high-volume casing offers maximum braking traction and cornering grip for when the trail becomes aggressive. But when gravity stops working its magic, the Hans Dampf will not leave you behind. The continuous tread pattern is closely spaced meaning that this tyre tracks well and has a lower rolling resistance over more aggressive options.

      Choose this tyre combo for your Trail Wide wheels if you want an all-round option for your aggressive XC or trail bike. We love this tyre when the trails are a little dryer and demand a faster rolling option.
