Looking for the perfect balance of stiffness, aerodynamics, and light weight? Industry Nine’s C41 tubular wheels are an incredible set that are perfect for all courses and conditions. The 41mm-deep Reynolds carbon rims slice through the air while tipping the scale at a scant 350 grams per rim. That performance is matched by I9’s phenomenal Torch hubs, which have class-leading engagement with multiple drag-reducing features to keep you flying down the road. The whole package is laced together with Sapim CX-Ray spokes using I9’s 2/1 lacing pattern for reduced weight with maximum stiffness. Hilly road races, crits, and even time trialing, the C41 Tubular is the ultimate quiver-killer in high-performance wheelsets.
Featured on all Torch-hub wheels – This lacing pattern significantly reduces wheel weight and promotes (more) even spoke tensions while maintaining excellent durability. Front and rear wheels feature 16 spokes on the rear drive side/front disc side flange, paired with 8 opposing spokes. Due to the front and rear wheel dish caused by the cassette on the rear wheel and disc brake on the front wheel, this orientation evens out spoke tension. This reduces peak stress loads on the spokes and rim, and reduces the fatigue cycle incurred in a traditional 24 spoke wheel. This allows a lower spoke count and lighter weight, without the durability issues and increased rim weights commonly associated with low spoke count wheels
