Your ultimate XC dream bike needs the ultimate dream wheels, and Industry Nine's Ultralite wheels never disappoint. They start with I9's gorgeous Torch hubs (made right here in the USA) that offer near-instant engagement for snappy responsiveness. I9's one-piece aluminum spokes don't use nipples; instead they thread right into the hub to save weight where it really counts—at the rims. I9's Ultralite Torch rims are masterpieces, too. The 375 gram, tubeless-ready aluminum rims feature a 21mm inner width to give your tires a great profile for railing corners without slowing you down on grassy sprints to the line. 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
