Hunt 50 Carbon wide aero wheels review

Ordered a pair of Hunt 50 Carbon wide aero wheels at the end of January and they finally arrived with a few weeks delay the day before the Ras Luimni . I carefully installed my tyres and cassette and today went out for a 56KM pre race training session. When I got back the rear wheel had a buckle through almost half of its circumference. On closer inspection I notice that three left side spokes are cracking at the nipple on the rim, so the wheel is already a write off.

A sad start to my use of the wheels and I had to race the Ras Luimni with my Aero wide aluminium rear instead. We’ll see how long it takes for Hunt to send me a replacement wheel. I hope it is soon as I have races every weekend and I was hoping to have the advantage of a deeper wheel set.

If you have a pair of these, inspect the rims around the spoke nipples.

Three weeks later and the new wheel arrives with two free water bottles. Tyre and Cassette fitted. I hope this wheel is good, I missed out on using the pair properly on the first three races of the season.

Hunt Aero Wheels 31 Deep 24 Wide

Hunt Aero Wheels 31 Deep 24 Wide just arrived here un boxed and got ready for use. I used a pair of nice Shimano Ultegra wheels last year for racing that were very good value for money at 300 €. These wheels are a bit more and like my Ultegras I now have them ready to go with Schwalbe Pro One 25MM tyres with 25ML of sealant and an Ultegra cassette 14-28 for Junior gearing.
