Hunt has launched its latest set of hoops called the 32 Aerodynamicist, touting a balance between weight and aerodynamics that set them apart from most disc brake specific wheelsets.
Featuring a 32mm UD carbon hookless rim, the tubeless wheelset tips the scales at a feathery 1213g, while its externally and internally parameters of 25mm and 21mm allow for tires up to a beefy 28mm.
“We created the 32 UD Carbon Spoke wheelset for riders who seek out the high mountains. The result of extensive research and development, and years of experience progressing proprietary HUNT Aerodynamicist designs, we paired lightweight, hookless rims with UD Carbon Spokes for added lateral stiffness, as well as further weight reduction. Laced to our new cold-forged Sprint SLC hubs with rapid 7.5-degree engagement and enhanced power transfer, this wheelset is exceedingly lightweight at 1213 grams, while still offering the responsiveness, reliability and serviceability that HUNT riders have come to expect,” boasts the British brand.
At the center of the 32 Aerodynamicist, are Hunt’s new Sprint SLC hubs with TaperLock technology, which are laced with unidirectional carbon spokes and standard spoke nipples, allowing the carbon spokes to be easily replaced or trued via standard tools.
“Our spokes have 6% more laterally responsive than identical steel spoked wheels, with significantly less weight, while benefiting from the high-frequency vibration absorption capabilities of carbon fiber in the UD spokes, as well as the rim.” explains Hunt.
The 32 Aerodynamicist wheelset fetches £1,199, which are available with the usual free hub options from Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo freehub, with availability expected in late May.
