HUNT Mountain Launches Three New Wheelsets: All-Mountain H_Impact Carbon, DH Privateer and Race XC

HUNT Mountain Launches Three New Wheelsets: All-Mountain H_Impact Carbon, DH Privateer and Race XC

Hunt Bike Wheels (United Kingdom) - Press Release: HUNT All-Mountain Carbon H_Impact Wheelset.

All-MTN Carbon: Front and rear specific wheels optimized for compliancy up front and high impact strength out back.

Responsive, compliant and incredibly strong.

The Purpose:

Designed for everything from big alpine days in the mountains where descents are timed in hours to your local push up trails; The All-Mountain Carbon H_IMPACT combines our 3° RapidEngage hubs and triple butted Pillar PSR spokes, with front/rear optimised rims to build an incredibly strong yet compliant wheelset.

Working with Downhill riders Becci Skelton and Tom Makin, of Steve Peat Syndicate Racing, the H_IMPACTs were well and truly put through the ringer. Although not designed for the demands of Downhill we wanted to ensure they were more than tough enough to handle anything an alpine descent can throw at you.

The V1 rims survived months of North Wales finest rocky tracks, until Tom finally cracked them. Although he’s no lightweight, it highlighted that we needed to try harder. So, Pete and Luisa worked further to test three other ideas in the lay-up schedule and materials choices. The V2 prototypes which resulted were 36% stronger in our laboratory impact tests for the same weight and dimensions whilst also using compliant low-temperature V:Absorbe resin. Tom is still trying unsuccessfully to break them.

Overview:

  • Rims | H_IMPACT Unidirectional T24/30 with 3K weave reinforced spoke holes, 28mm wide (internal), Extra thick sidewalls for impact protection and V:Asborb resin to reduce vibration.
  • Hubs | 3° RapidEngage, boost (110/148) spacing hubs, large double sealed cartridge bearings. Rock Shox Torque Caps available. (We will fit them, just let us know in the simple form shown after checkout or add a comment in the notes section of the cart page).
  • Spokes | 28F/32R Spoke Count, Triple Butted (2.2-1.6-2.0) PSR reinforced Pillar Spokes.
  • Tyres | Optimised for 2.3"-2.5" tyres set up Tubeless, but also work very well with 2.25"-2.6". Also great with standard tyres and tubes.
  • Axles | Oversized 7075-T6 heat-treated aluminium alloy axles.
  • Weight | 1810/1878g 27.5"/29"

 

HUNT Downhill Privateer MTB Wheelset.

Privateer DH: Fit and forget performance for when you have bigger things to focus on.

The Purpose:

This is the wheel for those who sacrifice home comforts to chase the clock. When living and wrenching from a van, eating noodles and stretching budgets, the last thing you need to worry about is your wheels.

Whilst testing them at national and international level racing, the Privateer DH's have already taken podiums under racers Becci Skelton and Sophie Tyas. Racing them across the country, they were Becci's wheel of choice when going toe to toe with the notoriously tough Fort William downhill track.

Surviving everything the Nevis range could throw at them, the super tough 6069-T6 aluminium and thick sidewalls help ward off nasty rock strikes whilst the 32/36 spoke count spread the load from impacts, or the occasional knuckling of a jump.

The Privateers won’t let you down when putting everything on the line.

Overview:

  • Rims | 6069-T6 (+69% tensile strength vs 6061-T6) welded construction, 26mm wide (internal), work-hardened shot-peened finish.
  • Hubs | Large body DH front hub and 3° RapidEngage rear hub, DH Spacing- 20x110/157x12 Spacing (150mm adaptors available). Large double sealed cartridge bearings.
  • Spokes | 32F/36R Spoke Count, Triple Butted (2.2-1.8-2.0) PSR reinforced Pillar Spokes.
  • Tyres | Optimised for 2.3"-2.5" tyres set up Tubeless, but also work very well with 2.2.25"-2.6". Also great with standard tyres and tubes.
  • Axles | Oversized 7075-T6 heat-treated aluminium alloy axles.
  • Weight | 2136/2220g 27.5"/29"

 

HUNT Race XC Wide MTB Wheelset.

RACE XC Wide: Built for the demands of modern technical cross country racing.

The Purpose:

Building on everything we learnt with the XC Wide; the Race version takes things even further. Saving nearly 150g whilst not sacrificing any strength, this is the perfect choice for when you're attacking both the ups, and downs, at race pace.

With 24mm internal 6069-T6 alloy (+69% tensile strength vs 6061-T6) rims they are no flexy featherweights- built to handle the demands of today’s rocky and rooty XC courses or be fitted to the new breed of long-legged “downcountry” bikes.

With 5° RapidEngage Hubs and excellent torsional strength from Pillar's PSR Straight Pull Spokes, they'll make every pedal stroke count when it's needed most.

Overview:

  • Rims | 29". 6069 T6 (+69% tensile strength vs 6061-T6) welded construction, 24mm wide (internal), work-hardened shot-peened finish.
  • Hubs | 5° RapidEngage and H_CERAMIK coating for increased durability and strength. Large double sealed cartridge bearings. Boost (110/148) fitment with Rock Shox Torque Caps and Boost QR adapters (110/141) available. (We will fit the axles you need, just complete the simple form shown after checkout or add a comment in the notes section of the cart page).
  • Spokes | 28 spoke count, straight pull PSR reinforced head Pillar spokes.
  • Tyres | Optimised for 2.0"-2.3" tyres set up tubeless, but also work very well with 2.20"-2.5". Also great with standard tyres & tubes.
  • Axles | Oversized 7075-T6 heat-treated aluminium alloy axles.
  • Weight | 1517g
