Whether you're hammering your local trails or throwing on a number plate, Industry Nine's Ultralite carbon 29 wheels offer an exceptional balance between weight and performance. I9’s PillarCarbon rims kick off this awesome wheelset; tipping the scale at 345 grams per rim, they have a generous 24mm internal width and feature No Hook Tubeless technology to give you an awesome tire profile with simple tubeless setup. 24 one-piece-aluminum spokes use I9’s 2/1 lacing pattern for optimal strength and stiffness while shaving unnecessary weight. I9’s renowned Torch hubs deliver instant engagement with their 120 point engagement, 3-degree, 6-pawl mechanism to help you get through technical sections by jumping forward with every movement of the pedals. These wheels are race-day light and everyday tough, what more do you need?
Featured on the Ultralite Carbon 29", Ultralite, Trail Carbon 24h 27.5" & 29", Trail 24h, and our road disc 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
