DISC-SPECIFIC AND READY FOR ALL-OUT ATTACK ON THE LOCAL CRIT CIRCUITS OR TT/TRIATHLON COURSES

50/65 Deep | 27 Wide Ext | 20 Wide Int | 1532g

The Purpose

Road races, criteriums, and time trials, are being won by disc-brake bikes with increasing frequency. The shift is happening, and to keep up you'll need an aero wheelset that delivers speed in buckets. Introducing the 5065 Carbon Aero Disc.

The 50/65mm deep rims cut through the air, providing superior aerodynamic performance. The wide 27mm U-shaped profile serves up great handling and reduces drag across multiple wind yaw-angles. The 20mm internal rim bed opens out your tire profile, providing vibration reduction, grip and low rolling-resistance.

The straight pull hubs and bladed spokes reduce weight, add strength and respond instantly to your accelerations. The freehub body on the HUNT Sprint hub features 48 teeth on the ratchet ring, and treble-tooth pawls, providing 7.5° engagement. Perfect for when the hammer goes down and you need an instant response. The LU/LB bearings (which are low-friction sealed on the internal face) further reduce rolling resistance whilst maintaining excellent sealing on the exposed faces.

    All HUNT wheels models have to pass our harsh cobbled-rolling-road tests for rider weight limits, please see here for more details. 220lbs is the upper recommended rider weight limit for these wheels. Please include the weight of any luggage in your total rider weight when choosing the correct wheels. If a rider is over 172lbs then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly and it is advisable to use tyres at max 90psi as this will reduce the fatigue on the wheelset. We are cyclists ourselves and do of course go above and beyond to offer excellent service if you ever do experience any issues. We carry full spares at very reasonable prices and offer complete support.

    60 Day Ride & Return Period. We are certain you'll be impressed by the acceleration, low-weight, speed and durability of our wheels. We are cyclists and as such strive to offer class leading service and support. Buy with confidence, if for any reason you wish to return the wheels for a full refund of your order you can do so up to a full 60 days after you receive them whether they have been ridden or not. Please note we cannot offer refunds on wheels that have suffered from crash damage but do offer a crash replacement discount.

    4/5 HIGHLY COMMENDED AWARD
