British wheel brand Hunt has a pretty sizeable range of wheels now, encompassing road, through CX and gravel to MTB, but now it’s bringing to market a race-specific pair of wheels for its gravel range to compliment the generalist Carbon Gravel, and the racy top end Limitless Gravel. 

With gravel racing evolving into its own distinct discipline, away from general gravel riding and bikepacking, brands have been playing catch up to offer options to suit the performance needs of the most demanding races like Unbound. The new 40 Carbon Gravel Race and 25 Carbon Gravel Race bring aero benefits to a lower price point, along with hookless rims. Do they belong in our list of the best gravel wheelsets? Only time and some thorough testing will tell, but for now, we can bring you up to speed on the details.

Will joined the Cyclingnews team as a reviews writer in 2022, having previously written for Cyclist, BikeRadar and Advntr. There are very few types of cycling he's not dabbled in, and he has a particular affection for older bikes and long lasting components. Road riding was his first love, before graduating to racing CX in Yorkshire. He's been touring on a vintage tandem all the way through to fixed gear gravel riding and MTB too. When he's not out riding one of his many bikes he can usually be found in the garage tinkering with another of them, or getting obsessive about tyres. Also, as he doesn't use Zwift, he's our go-to guy for bad weather testing... bless him.
