Hunt Bike Wheels (United Kingdom) - Press Release: Featuring the same Aerodynamicist rims as found on our UD Carbon Spoke range, but with steel ‘Wing’ aerofoil spokes, they’re available for order now in depths of 44, 54, and a 4454 mix with weights from 1466g.
HUNT 4454 Aerodynamicist Carbon Disc Wheelset:
Aerodynamicist profiles in their purest form. Accessible aero, trickled down from our Limitless wheels.
The 4454 Aerodynamicist Carbon Disc benefits from the further trickle-down effect of Luisa Grappone's Aerodynamicist rim profiles, as first seen on the 48 Limitless Aero Disc. The rims used are the same as in the 44 & 54 UD Carbon Spoke Disc, but paired with conventional steel spokes.
Aerodynamicist 29mm-wide rim, exclusively engineered and wind tunnel tested by Luisa Grappone, HUNT Engineering Manager, featuring a hooked & ETRTO-compliant tubeless-ready rim, designed for full clincher & tubeless tyre compatibility.
As most of you will already know, we design our wheels to take a pretty impressive amount of hammering under all sorts of conditions. Whether you're hitting out at your local crit or road race, or taking the long way home on the paths less travelled, you can do so with the confidence that you're rolling on hoops designed to take the lot in their stride.
Aerodynamicist performance, now accessible:
- Rims | Aerodynamicist disc-specific rim profiles, designed from the ground up. Toray T700/T800 carbon-fibre with a stronger ratio of T800 (T40) fibres to achieve greater strength-to-weight ratio. Unidirectional sidewalls with 3K weave bed and spoke areas. Tubeless-ready for lower weight, rolling resistance and better puncture protection.
- Tyres | 20mm rim bed optimised for superior aerodynamic performance with a 25-28c tubeless tyre, but also very capable with a 23c. Tubeless-Ready. Also works excellently with clincher tyres and tubes.
- Hubs | Sprint straight-pull hubs, with a 15mm diameter 7075-T6 axle. Circular dropout interface steps for added stiffness. 3x treble tooth pawls resulting in just 7.5˚ engagement. Steel spline insert to protect the cassette body.
- Elliptical Wing Spokes | Pillar Wing 20 spokes with aerofoil profile. Tested and proven to provide aerodynamic advantage over flat or bladed options both from Pillar and other competitors.
- Axles | Easily adaptable & we fit them for you. Fit all current axle sizes and are easy to change; Front - QR, Bolt thru 12/9mm, Rear - QR, Bolt thru 12x142, 12x135, 10x135.
