Wider rims and wider hub flanges make Industry Nine's i25 Road Wheelset stiffer and more aerodynamic. These sweet hoops are laced to I9's gorgeous Torch hubs (made right here in the USA), which offer near-instant engagement and superb reliability. The hubs' wide flanges noticeably enhance wheel stiffness, as do the Sapim CX-Ray spokes. The stiff 25mm-deep tubular aluminum rims provide a great ride quality and aerodynamics, giving you all the best rim characteristics available. These wheels are race-day light and every-day tough—what more do you need?
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
These wheels are available in a wide variety of standard and custom colors. Please contact us for details and pricing.
