Hunt may have only launched in 2015 but the Sussex-based firm have already turned heads, quickly expanding their range of road wheels to include the Hunt Aero Light Disc wheels here.
Hunt launched with a single disc wheelset but now have six options in the range, covering everything from carbon clinchers to winter-specific training wheels. The Aero Light Discs are, as you’ve probably guessed, pitched as an aerodynamic, lightweight wheelset for disc brake bikes. What isn’t mentioned in the name is that they’re tubeless ready, so you’re looking at a set of wheels which are right in line with a number of trends.
In reality, you’re talking about marginal gains – if any – in aerodynamic terms since although the alloy disc-specific rim has a rounded profile it’s only 28mm deep. What you’re really buying these wheels for is the weight as they’re impressively light for disc brake wheels at only 1,469g for the set.
