I had the same thing! Didn't want to wait until Jan and lost a bit of faith in new tech from Hunt so as I ordered my wheels through a Specialized dealer I swapped them for some CLX 50s... they are lighter at least and as it is for a gravel bike and they are spec'd on the sworks Crux should be good!

CLx 50s for gravel. That's some innovative thinking that you have there.

Well they are spec'd as cross wheels, but will be more a winter road wheel as I have some 650bs with 47mms for proper gravel stuff. Bike is a stainless XCr/carbon bike being built by saffron frameworks so needed appropriately bling wheels 🤣

i cancelled my order a few weeks back after they missed the initial delivery date. they offered loaner wheels but i insisted on full refund.
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:

Hunt limitless have been recalled
Having rims much wider than the tyres was always a danger. Not sure how they will resolve this. Rim damage is always more likely. It like stretched tyre on cars for that euro look.

I guess that's not the problem. As far as I've read, it's cannondale with their knot wheels in their aero bike that also have a wider rim than wheel.

I remember online reviews saying that was very weird seeing the tyre shallower than the rim but hey, it worked. Their words.
