Hunt Bike Wheels was created with the goal of developing state-of-the-art performance bike products for dedicated riders like you. Cycling is a passion for the entire team at HUNT | TheRiderFirm – whether we’re riding singletrack, commuting to work every day, or racing to the next stoplight with our fellow riders. Riding bikes is an important part of the work we do at TheRiderFirm. A lot goes on behind the scenes to give you a driving experience that is second to none.
HAND-MADE BY REAL WHEELWORKERS – The wheels are hand-built and finished by Mr. Hao-Cheng at our wheel-building partner. In his many years as a master wheel builder, he has built and fine-tuned tens of thousands of wheels for leading high-end brands. All our bikes are built and finished by two people. Each Hunt wheelset is then subjected to a full quality control check, where all features of the construction are verified. The wheels are then personally signed off by the builder on the individual quality control card supplied in the box. These wheels are created with great pride and passion.
THE WHEEL FABRICATION – We test, specify and develop all our products in the UK, and we also develop our wheel designs with UK project engineers. All of our suppliers, including our hub manufacturers, are based in Taiwan. Taiwan is an incredible country with entrepreneurial drive and excellent engineering knowledge, not to mention it is a very friendly, welcoming and polite culture. Taiwan is now widely recognized in the bicycle industry as the place where high-quality bicycle components are competitively manufactured. At Hunt Bike Wheels, we strive to make the best performance wheels because we have the technical capabilities to achieve that goal.
RIMTECHNOLOGY – The super light niobium aluminum alloy rims are heat treated and anodized at one of our rim suppliers. We’ve leveraged our industry knowledge and connections to source components and wheel technologies that truly push the performance envelope. The niobium aluminum alloy is a patented material developed by our supplier. Thanks to all the know-how Hunt Bike Wheels are light, stiff and accelerate very well.
THE SPOKES – The double-sealed precision bearings from EZO Japan and the heavy-duty spokes from Pillar Racing are outstanding components that contribute to the quality of the HUNT wheels. The Pillar spokes are the top of the range and are used in triple butted round and aero versions. They are cold drawn from Swedish Sandvik T302 stainless steel wire and feature Pillar’s patented PSR spoke head reinforcement. PSR spokes are butted again just before the spoke head in order to obtain more strength in this highly stressed area. These spokes are more expensive, but the triple butting makes for a great ride and the PSR spokes offer extra durability compared to standard spokes. Pillar Racing Spokes are trusted by many leading brands.
