Inspired by Industry Nine's well-loved Trail wheels, the Trail 245 29in Boost Wheelset builds on tradition with a wider stance and redesigned bead hook for bombproof speed out on the course. For added strength and in keeping with current frame trends, this wheelset features wider, Boost hubs. Boost hubs improve the spokes' bracing angle, increasing stiffness and making for better tracking and power transfer.
The Trail 245 rim borrows heavily from the original Trail rim, bumping the internal rim width up a millimeter to 24.5, adding a millimeter to the bead seat on either side of the rim, and shortening the bead wall by half a millimeter compared to the Trail. While these may sound like miniscule changes, they result in a better platform for the tire, better tubeless seal, and less chance of pinching a tire out in the dirt. Industry Nine also beefs up the impact resistance with increased bead wall thickness and tapered construction that focuses the bulk of materials in areas where it's needed to resist damage and keep you rolling through big hits and gnarly terrain.
At the center, Industry Nine laces the rims to a set of Torch S-series hubs to keep everything turning smoothly. The rear driver boasts six pawls and provides three-degree/120-point engagement for efficient power transfer and lighting fast responsiveness the second you push on the pedals.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Got these wheels as I wasnt quite ready to drop the full $2600ish to get Enves, and didnt really trust any carbon wheels lower than that. First thing I noticed was the engagement. I've read about the 3 degree engagement on paper, but always just assumed that it was a lot of marketing. Even the industry stalwart, DT Swiss 240 with its 20 degree engagement, seems really slow to hook up compared to I9. The weight of this wheelset is adequate for its width, and having a 24.5 interior width allows me to run 2.3 and 2.4 tires that fit nicely. One additional thing to add is that these hubs are LOUD. Whether or not you like loud freehubs, its an additional benefit on crowded trails as its hard for people not to hear you coming when you are coasting. These wheels come with rim tape and valve stems already pre-installed, and setting them up tubeless with Maxxis tires was a cinch that i was able to do on my first try.
