Hunt 30Carbon Gravel Disc wheelset review

At 1500g, Hunt’s wide section carbon wheels are light for a robust wheelset

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Hunt 30Carbon Gravel Disc wheelset provides a robust option with a wide, tubeless ready rim and light weight for confident off road riding. Like all Hunt’s wheels it has a quality build with the latest features and is adaptable to whatever wheel standard. It provides a nice upgrade to a standard alloy wheelset and would work well for cyclocross, if you don’t want to deal with tubs, as well as for gravel and heavy duty road riding.

Hunt Bike Wheels are UK designed to cope with UK conditions and the 30Carbon Gravel Disc wheelset provides a great option for anyone planning to head off road as well as take in back road use.

For starters, they’re built with 28 aero J-bend spokes laced two-cross front and rear, so they’re super-rugged. Hunt says that they will cope with riders up to 115kg. This is not bought at the expense of excess weight though, as we’ve weighed the wheelset at 1500g on the mark.
