- Hunt or Scribe carbon road wheels
Been mulling over a set of carbon hoops for the roadie for a while. The 2 brands that stick out due to affordability are Hunt and Scribe. Heard good things about Hunt but not heard anything about Scribe.Posted 4 months ago
Anyone with opinions either way or even throw in a 3rd option!benmanMember
I’ve got a set of Hunt Disc 50’s. I’ve done about 2000 miles on them so far – they feel good (a much smoother ride than my alu wheelsets), tubeless setup was painless, and they’ve taken a few harsh pothole whacks without flinching. They feel fast to me, but I haven’t ridden any other carbon wheels to compare.
Only negative experience I had was when the carbon rim void filled with water when I was caught out on a biblically wet day!Posted 4 months agorichardkennerleySubscriber
Can’t recommend anything, but I’ve been looking at JRA wheels as an option for a future upgrade. Not the carbon ones for me but they do themPosted 4 months agofootflapsSubscriber
Hunt wheels look nice and they’re cheap, but not at all aero, in fact some of the worst performing ‘aero’ wheels out there!

I analysed that data. Don’t get too excited about the order of the wheels. Basically deeper is more aero, but Variability was such that precise order on a class can’t be calculated. That’s it. I like HED for the alloy rim braking. But Hunt have a good reputation.Posted 4 months agoflattyreMember
I got some farsports ones (25 x 30mm) for my supersix and it was a bit of a mixed bag compared to Askiums. Uphill, amazing. Along the flat, feel a bit faster. Downhill, bike feels less stable due to light weight and brakes are “grabby”. They are really stiff too so need about 10psi less to get the same comfort.Posted 4 months ago
