Anyone try these out? They seem good for the money, any other options you’d suggest?

A friend has a pair and likes them. He's more aggressive than I and hasn't had any issues with them. I have some Enduro Wide's on my own bike and also love them. In a group of 4, 3 of us are now running Hunts and so far, so good. Mine are on their second season.

I've got Trail Wides and Enduro Rides. They've both been great. Nice guys too.

I’m running the carbon’s and loving them. Got a lot of park time and poor line choices and they’re still kicking.

Wouldn’t recommend them if your running a lot of park and rougher single tracks. I bashed my rear beyond repair on the second run. Just felt like the rim is was to soft and fragile.

They did however work wonders on more basic trails. And yes I was running pretty low pressure but I ran Cush core and the hit wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. Might have been bad luck but I’ve been running my former DT Swiss and Horizons V2 on the same single track hundreds of times without anything close to what happened to the Hunts.

I’ve heard that about the trail wides V1, I think there may be a V2 out now? I can confirm that the carbons are very rugged though. I’ve definitely put them through some seriously poor line choices, cases and hucks to flat. I’ve pinched an exo+ dhr II with an insert and the wheels are still perfect.

I generally ride steepy steeps with many many roots but not so many rocks. I've still smashed mine off some hard things though without any issues.

I probably should have opted for the carbon icy enduro ones, I know that the enduros I said to be a bit beefier. Live & learn.

Best looking wheel set out there tho in my eyes. Really clean.

Im in the market for a new set of wheels as well. I looked at hunts but kind ruled them out because I figured if I was going to get a new wheelset might as well get some fancy hubs. Not sure if I would even be able to tell the difference(I have always ridden stock wheels) but how do you like the hubs? Im currently have a e13 wheelset.

I don’t have any experience with really high end hubs either, but the POE is fantastic. I ride a lot of tech and technical climbs when in not hurling myself down lift service runs and I’ve really enjoyed them. On the quieter side which I’m really happy about.

My enduro wides replaced the E13 that came on my nomad. Apart from being far more reliable, the hub had far better engagement. Not sure I could tell a difference on a front hub though.
