HUNT Mason X 650B Adventure Sport Disc Wheelset
MASON X HUNT 650B ADVENTURE SPORT DISC WHEELSET
THE SECOND IN A LINE OF MASON X HUNT COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS. THE GO-TO 650B/27.5" WHEELS FOR YOUR GRAVEL/BIKEPACKING RIG
19 DEEP | 29 WIDE EXT | 25 WIDE INT | 1594G
The second MASON x HUNT collaboration, bringing go-anywhere capabilities to bikes like the fast, fun and highly-versatile MasonCycles.cc Bokeh. The new breed of Adventure Sport focused bikes have the ability and attitude for those fun trail thrashes and bike-packing adventures, whilst not compromising anything for fast-far road days.
The opportunity to open up your riding comes from bikes which have geometry designed to ride excellently with both 700c or 27.5" (650b) wheels. This combination works thanks to the extra volume in a 2" x 27.5" tire, providing an almost identical external tire diameter to a normal road sized 700c wheel with a 33mm tire, leaving the bike geo unchanged. What was needed was a bike that could accommodate the extra tire width, while still running road groupsets, geo and components. That is exactly what Mason have created, and perfected with their incredible eye-for-detail.
We’re delighted to have designed the wheels for the job. These wheels will perfectly compliment other gravel bikes with dual 650b/700c compatibility. Oh, and if you are looking for a 700c wheelset for your drop bar adventure/go-anywhere bike, then our 4 SEASON GRAVEL DISC would be well worth a look
