Yes, some of the Hunt wheels use Kinlin XR31 rims.

Well, for starters, can i get a pair if I wanted to? Who made them? How much do they weigh on their own?
The rims are around 290g. I can give you more info once I've ridden them for a bit - still waiting for my new frame.

Digging up an old thread, did you put some miles on those wheels and can you tell us more about them?

Yes, rode them to the office today. Braking is fine, tires sit well, really happy with them.

That is another lovely Heritic Marin, I really enjoyed that album. Since you also used alloy rims on that bike, how do these carbon rims compare when braking in the rain?

And the most burning question: who makes these rims and where can we buy them?

Thanks!

Braking is fine, as good as the better carbon rims out there, a bit loud. No squealing, just "whooshing". The wheelset is 1050g by the way, and with the 300g tubeless Pari-Motos it's still lighter than many 700c wheels WITH tires.

The rims are made by Heretic of course (like Specialized rims are made by Specialized e.g.) and since I don't sell anything you can't buy them :D

ooh, they look perfect!
it's actually possible to come to the conclusion even before realising it makes no sense at all
