The simple truth is that most of us want to go faster on our bikes. Sure, you could train. But you could also just upgrade to a lighter wheelset…

To help you with your quest to go faster, Bikerumor has teamed up with Hunt Wheels to give away a pair of Hunt’s new 25 Carbon Gravel Race Wheels, a wheelset that retails for $1159!

Hunt says that this wheelset was designed to offer control and speed for the fastest gravel rides. Tubeless, ETRTO-compliant hookless rims, laced to a reliable, fast-engaging Sprint SL hub make for a system that Hunt wants you to know, is “ready to face any race day conditions.”

This wheelset is a race-focused, hookless wheelset that “is built to offer versatility for the harshest and steepest days”.

The wheelset is laced to Hunt’s lighter, race-ready Sprint SL hubs with Pillar spokes. These hubs offer 7.5-degree engagement.

“We chose the top-of-the-range Pillar Spoke Re-enforcement PSR XTRA models. These butted blade aero spokes are lighter but also provide a greater degree of elasticity to maintain tensions longer and add fatigue resistance. PSR spokes feature the 2.2 width at the spoke head providing more material in this high-stress area. The nipples come with a hex head so you can achieve precise tensioning. Combining these components well is key which is why all HUNT wheels are hand-built.”

Hunt says this is a light, versatile wheelset that was built with race day in mind. Saying that the Sprint SL hubs, feature the same strength and power transfer but in a lower-weight package. Their thought was that this could result in more direct power transferred to the rear wheel.

The wheelset is highly adaptable with swappable caps allowing you to use whatever axle standard your bike comes with.

*Please note that these wheels will not work with older 15mm front road/gravel TA standards.*

    • Actually, carbon gravel race wheelsets are overrated. They may be lightweight, but they lack durability and tend to crack easily. Stick to reliable alloy wheelsets for a better off-road experience. Dont believe the hype.

  2. Nah, neon pink is for amateurs. Real gravel racers need sleek and stealthy wheels, not some flashy color. Stick to black or gray, my friend. Thats what the pros ride.
