Hunt has introduced two new wheelsets, the 30 Carbon Dynamo Disc and the Search 29 Dynamo Disc aimed at both multi-day epics and more everyday riding. Let's go through them in turn.
The 30 Carbon Dynamo Disc wheelset (main pic, above) is designed for people who want a dynamo hub combined with a set of wind-cheating carbon rims, whether that be for ultra-distance riding, bike packing, commuting or training.
Hunt says that this wheelset has the benefits of its existing Super Dura Dynamo Disc wheelset, but in a lighter and more aero package. It's designed for both road and gravel use.
The 30 Carbon Dynamo Disc wheelset features a SON 28 front dynamo, a 4Season Disc rear hub, Hunt's tubeless 30 Carbon rims (21mm internal width, 27mm external width) and 28 spokes front and rear. The freehub has an H Ceramik coating to help prevent sprockets digging into the splines.
The wheelset, optimised for 25-45mm tubeless tyres, weighs a claimed 1,618g and is priced £1,059.
The Search 29 Dynamo Disc wheelset is designed for the new Mason InSearchOf long distance/multi-terrain bike – although it'll fit equally well on many others of this adventure-type ilk, of course.
The wheelset features a SON 28 front dynamo (15x110 Boost front spacing, an extra sealed and shielded 4Season Disc rear hub, Hunt's Trail Wide 29in mountain bike rims (6069 T6 aluminium alloy, shot-peened finish, 30mm internal width) and 32 triple-butted Pillar PSR spokes front and rear. The rear hub (148x12) engages superfast (5°) when you start pedalling.
Like all of Hunt's wheels, the Search 29 Dynamo Disc is designed to be used as a tubeless system. It has a claimed weight of 2,165g and a price of £549.
