HUNT XC Wide MTB Wheelset
HUNT XC Wide MTB 29 Wheelset
HUNT XC Wide MTB 29 Wheelset
<h1>Rims</h1><i>The XC Wide rim strikes the perfect balance between durability and performance making sure every ride is better than the last. The 6069 T6 alloy (welded) rim features a 28mm (F) and 26mm (R) internal width to provide support during hard cornering or when throttling through techy sections. Optimized for 2.2"-2.5" tyres, the XC Wide won't hold you back.</i>
<h1>Rim bed</h1><i>HUNT wheels are designed to be used as a tubeless system, featuring our state-of-the-art H-Lock rim bead with unique 'up-kicks' to secure your tyre when seated. H-Lock minimizes side-to-side movement, reducing the risk of burping your tyre and enhancing the overall performance of your ride. This system also creates a flawless rim-well seal for effortless installation and easy sealing of tubeless tyres.</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>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>Freehub Body</h1><i>Durability is a theme for HUNT as time and money you spend fixing is time and money you cannot spend riding or upgrading your bikes. As a result, we've developed the <em>H_CERAMIK</em> coating to provide excellent durability and protect against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.</i>
<h1>Nipples</h1><i>Hard-anodized 14 gauge alloy nipples offer a winning combination of lightweight design and unyielding strength. The large 14mm square body provides easy adjustability for maintenance and unbeatable durability.</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>FEA Modelling (Front Wheel)</h1><i>After approximately 300 hours of FEA modelling per rim, the HUNT team has created unique front and rear-specific rim profiles to achieve the ideal performance attributes for each wheel’s specific role.</i>

Max system weight 135kg (system weight – total weight of fully kitted up rider, bike and luggage). If a rider is over 125Kgs then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly and it is advisable to use tyres at max 40psi as this will reduce the fatigue on the wheelset.
