From we we have learned from previous Hunt carbon gravel wheels, the company knows what they are doing.
Hunt Alloy SL Disc Specs
The wheelset benefits from a super-light, asymmetric disc-specific rim profile, made from a special HFR+ (High Fatigue Resistance) 6061-T6 heat-treated alloy. They’re asymmetric and V-shaped in profile, which remains the best option when strength and weight are the priorities.
These are laced with triple butted, straight-pull spokes to our new Sprint SL hubs, offering 7.5 degree engagement for rapid acceleration under load. Light & fast alloy, engineered to perform.
Sprint SL Disc Hubs
The Hunt Alloy SL Disc Wheelset features their new HUNT Sprint SL hubs, which take the fast-engaging & durable specs of their popular Sprint hubs, and wrap them up in all-new, lightweight shells, saving 20g per hubset in the process.
The new shells are made from a 6066 heat-treated alloy. Compared to the 6061 of our Sprint hubs, they feature a greater tensile strength, as well as a higher strength-to-weight ratio.
FEA Tested, Hunt’s engineering capacity has grown to incorporate full FEA stress analysis on hubs, rims, and other componentry.
The Sprint SL hubs are the first component developed since bringing this testing capacity in-house.
