HUNT Beyond Supported Riders 2020

HUNT Beyond was created to focus on developing wheels for those riders who don’t quite fit into the ‘normal’ cycling bracket. We all know that one person who just has to go a little too far, not content with ‘just’ riding 100 miles they are the ones that would ‘just’ ride 150 miles off road instead, or go on a family holiday to Spain and ‘just’ ride there. Or ‘just’ disappear for a month and return after cycling across some far flung mountain range in central Asia. We know you are out there, and we are here to serve you and make the best products for the job.


So with that in mind we would like to introduce our 2020 HUNT Beyond supported riders. We have picked a wide range of people to represent HUNT Beyond out on the trails and more crucially give us real world feedback to help develop the right wheels for the job.
