Hunt Carbon 50 Wheelset
ULTIMATE RACE WHEELSET. ULTRA-WIDE CUTTING EDGE RIM DESIGN. SUPER-STIFF. WIND-CHEATING. SCARY-FAST
50 DEEP | 27 WIDE | 1537G
These wheels are so aero, that we're free-wheeling in the pack whilst the others are pedalling. Going deep is obvious for aerodynamic performance. Add wide rims with a U-profile, and you get the addition of great handling and reduced drag across a wide range of yaw angles. Despite being a massive 27mm wide and 50mm deep, the rims are extremely light at only 498g each.
As used in UCI Continental level racing by the Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes pro team. We all want to go fast; that was the brief.
The freehub body on the HUNT Sprint hubs used for the 50CWA is also upgraded with 48 teeth on the ratchet ring and multi-point pawls, providing super-fast 7.5 degree engagement for when the hammer goes down and you need to accelerate now! The strong individual leaf spring pawls are louder than circular spring set-ups but we think that is the right decision to make for this type of wheelset. Also, stiffness = Speed so we specced large 15mm diameter hub axles for sprinting and out-of-saddle climbing. Ease into them, your mates won’t know it’s the wheels!
