HYPER: Black Edition

They say black never goes out of fashion, and they may be right. We love our HYPER wheels. We think the butterfly weave looks industrial and purposeful. However, we’re all about choice here at Lún Wheels. It came to our attention that some people just didn’t like the butterfly weave. Fair enough. So, we took a bunch of them and sprayed them black. Job done. Other brands would probably drop some letters to make it cool like “BLK EDTN” or something foreign like “Edition noir”…but… nah. It’s the Black Edition.

It’s just like Hyper. But Black.

So, what is the Black Edition?

It’s our much-loved and critically acclaimed HYPER wheels; but painted black. The filament-wound construction and butterfly weave (on the 38s and 50s) that give the HYPER their performance are still there under the paint. In fact, at certain angles you can still just about see the slight contours of the butterfly weave on the rim.

What else is different?

The rim is painted black with some subtle black “BLACK EDITION” logos at the bottom of the rim. In the box we also include a set of black HYPER decals and a set of white HYPER decals so you can chose how you want your wheels to look. We have a total off 11 different colors of HYPER decals available if you want to match your bike.

Are they faster?

Nope! They’re about 10 grams heavier per wheel from the weight of the paint too. That comes out to the wheelset being about 1.4% heavier. One percent. Don’t lose sleep over it.


  • The “Lún Performance Wheels” logo and BLACK EDITION logos are non-removable.
  • While the black paint covers the appearance of the butterfly weave, it does not fully cover the contours. As such, in certain lighting conditions the undulating contours of the side of the rim profile may be visible. This does not constitute a defect.
  • Decals are no longer provided.
