I have been privileged to help test and collaborate with Tom and Peter for a while now, both on the 24, racing in Perth and out in Italy. We will also be collaborating on another exciting project in the near future. To give you some information on the brand:
WHY - The bike wheelsets we want to buy aren't easily available so we've made them. Peter and Tom Marchment, are avid cyclists and have years of experience in the UK bike industry sourcing and marketing bike components from around the world. Tom has worked with several leading performance wheel brands. This knowledge means HuntBikeWheels bring you the latest practical technology and thinking in all things round. Their hubs, spokes, rims, bearings and quick-releases are manufactured by leaders in each field and are then lovingly hand-built into outstanding wheels by experts with thousands of builds to their names.
THE CHASE - Most of their rides are currently on the road so that's where they began. The wheels used for the vast majority of road miles need to be fast, light weight, suitable for wider road tyres, durable, easily serviceable and provide excellent braking performance. They have become strong advocates for tubeless technology. Having tested tubeless extensively on and off road they know it provides you with noticeably improved ride quality, grip and puncture protection. All their wheels come tubeless ready, but work perfectly with standard tyres and tubes, and provide excellent specs and low weight. Plus you're future-proofed if you want to go tubeless later. Of course, the wheels have to look stunning yet sophisticated too. They don't spec down to a price point we just create the best wheels for each type of riding.
THE PLAN - Their wheels are available to order through your local bike shop (just ask them to contact them) or purchase directly here at HuntBikeWheels.com, with international shipping available free of charge. They invest more in the details and significantly increase the specification of each component so Hunt wheels provide maximum performance to the rider. Their direct customer service means you will always be able to speak to a person and access the parts and servicing you need fast. Above all they want to create wheels and provide service you depend on, and allow you to perform to the highest level day-in day-out. They would love to hear how we can help you ride further and faster.
