The Trail Wide is your go-to wheelset no matter the conditions. Optimised to still take the A-lines on the descents and not hold you back on the climbs.

27.5" | 30mm Int. | 1761G

The Purpose

After almost three years of unwavering service on the toughest trails, with numerous awards and recognitions along the way, the restless design team at HUNT saw an opportunity to update the Trail Wide wheelset to meet the evolving demands of today’s riders.

Starting with what we learnt around profile optimisation from the burlier Enduro Wide V2 project, we set out to improve upon its lighter sibling, not an easy task with an Editor’s Choice-winning wheelset.

Combining the all-new 30mm internal rim profile, with new hubs and spoke configurations, results in a wheel that keeps the outward appearance of it's predecessor yet provide 20% more impact resistance.

Designed as the answer to your trail centre weekends, back country epics or days spent smashing through your local woods - a wheelset that can do it all and leave you with a big grin.
