Built for the demands of modern technical cross country racing.

29" | 24 Wide Int | 1517g

The Purpose

Building on everything we learnt with the XC Wide; the Race version takes things even further. Saving close to 150g whilst not sacrificing any strength, this is the perfect choice for when you're attacking both the ups, and downs, at race pace.

With 24mm internal 6069-T6 alloy (+69% tensile strength vs 6061-T6) rims they are no flexy featherweights- built to handle the demands of today’s rocky and rooty XC courses or be fitted to the new breed of long-legged “downcountry” bikes.

With 5° RapidEngage Hubs and excellent torsional strength from Pillar's PSR Straight Pull Spokes, they'll make every pedal stroke count when it's needed most.

Max system weight 297lbs (system weight – total weight of fully kitted up rider, bike and luggage). If a rider is over 273lbs then an experienced bike mechanic should check the wheel regularly and it is advisable to use tires at max 40psi as this will reduce the fatigue on the wheelset.

      The result? There’s no doubt in my mind that the Race XC Wide is one of the smoothest wheelsets I’ve ridden

      "Proof that an all-metal wheelset can perform just as well on the trail, while even providing certain advantages... For those after a race-ready set of hoops that won’t shake your teeth out of your skull, the Race XC Wide is a killer option for the money."

      Hunt Bike Wheels introduces new sub-1600g Race XC Wide wheelset

      "To put it in perspective, that’s lighter than a comparable Stan’s No Tubes Crest MK3 wheelset (1579g claimed weight) or the Mavic Crossmax Pro (1580g claimed weight). It’s also a helluva lot lighter than Hope’s Fortus 23 wheelset (1845g claimed weight)."
