HUNT SUB50 Limitless UD Carbon Spoke Disc Wheelset

1380g Depth Width ext Width int size
49.5 mm F34 / R30 mm 23 mm 700c

The in-house engineering team at HUNT aimed to create the absolute fastest, no compromise, all-around road race wheelset up to and including 50mm in depth, while optimising for modern width road tires (28mm and 30mm) and achieving the lowest system weight possible.  

Aero optimised for 28mm and 30mm tires; works well with 28mm up to 45mm.

"While it’s difficult to quantify a wheel’s aerodynamics accurately, I’ve ridden enough wheels to know when one feels fast—the SUB50 does. And perhaps more importantly, the SUB50 feels incredibly sure-footed at speed."

The Purpose _

The Purpose _

The in-house engineering team at HUNT aimed to create the absolute fastest, no compromise, all-around road race wheelset up to and including 50mm in depth, while optimizing for modern width road tires (28mm and 30mm) and achieving the lowest system weight possible. The Sub50 Limitless takes what we learned from creating our disc-brake wheelset redefining 48 Limitless (34.5mm wide), which when launched in 2019 proved in the wind-tunnel to be the fastest in its category. From that industry leading change others have followed.

A further three-year engineering development process has elevated the performance again with the SUB50 Limitless. Offering riders wind tunnel proven best-in-class aerodynamic efficiency and stability, combined with tire shape optimization, at an impressively low system weight of 1380 grams, the Sub50 Limitless once more sets the standard for all-round road racing wheels.

Tires Info
HUNT recommends a 28-30mmmm tire for best performance, tire widths between 28mm and 47mm are also safe to use.You must not exceed the maximum tire pressure limits set out in the table below or the maximum limit set by your tire manufacturer if this is lower.Only use tires marked as compatible with hookless (TSS) rims.Note: best performance is usually gained by using tire pressures lower than the maximum, you can see our blog post here about this.Tubeless-ready for lower weight and rolling resistance.

LIMITLESS RIM PROFILE

HUNT-patented Limitless Width Aero Technology enables us to build a rim that possesses wide, blunt dimensions and class-leading aerodynamic characteristics, whilst maintaining a weight that won’t detract from the all-round performance of the wheelset.

SPOKES



TaperLock UD carbon spokes offer up to a 30% increase in lateral responsiveness against steel equivalents. Only 2.7g per spoke and yet can handle tightening forces of ~450kgf per spoke. Owing to the TaperLock technology, these spokes can be trued using a spoke key from inside the rim bed.

CERAMICSPEED BEARINGS

CeramicSpeed Balls are of the highest quality Grade 3 Silicon Nitride, featuring the highest achievable surface finish and roundness. One size does not fit all. CeramicSpeed bearings are custom fitted for the HUNT H_Ratchet hubset at the CeramicSpeed factory, with extreme tolerances measured within a thousandth of a millimeter.

MATTE REFLECTIVE GRAPHICS

APPROVED BY THE UCI FOR RACING

TYRE WIDTH OPTIMISATION

Designed with 23mm internal rim width optimised for 28c and 30c tires. ETRTO-compatible and tubeless-ready.

Featuring HUNT’s H_Ratchet double-sided system (with two floating ratchet rings), with a 40t ratchet ring resulting in just 9˚ engagement. The freehub benefits from H_Ceramik anti-bite coating to ensure maximum durability. Durability is a theme for HUNT, and so all our freehub bodies have Steel Spline Insert re-enforcements to provide excellent durability against cassette sprocket damage often seen on standard alloy freehub bodies.

LOW SYSTEM WEIGHT - FRONT

Innovation in rim layup technology, UD carbon spokes and hubs delivers class-leading low weight. Please note on scale images weighed without valves and tape. +/- 3% variation on wheelset weights can occur.

LOW SYSTEM WEIGHT - REAR

Innovation in rim layup technology, UD carbon spokes and ratchet hubs delivers class-leading low weight. Please note on scale images weighed without valves and tape. +/- 3% variation on wheelset weights can occur.
