If last weekend found you chugging up a loose, dusty climb wondering how you could shed a few grams, only to wish the same on the way back down, then it’s time for a new set of hoops. Take Ibis’ 735 Carbon Boost Wheelset down steep, chunky descents lined with baby head boulders and downed trees, and it’ll handle every big hit and unexpected drop with ease. And when you can’t resist heading back around for another lap, the carbon rims will keep you moving uphill fast enough to make it down before sunset.
With a generous width and careful construction, the 735’s aren’t a willowy set of XC race wheels. Ibis adopts Boost spacing for added stiffness this time around, as well as a 29mm internal perch for your 27.5 tires to sit atop. The shape allows tire beads to sit wide, reducing the likelihood of burps and pinch flats when you’re running the tires at lower PSI. You’ll enjoy better traction as more of the tire stays in contact with the trail and a corresponding decrease in flat risk during a hard corner. Pop over cruxes instantly with Industry Nine’s revered Torch hubs promising three degrees of engagement and years of durability, and you’ll have a hard time remembering a time when you rode without your 735’s.

These are only available with centerlock discs. Not a problem for me, but something to consider if you are moving a 6 bolt disc from another wheel. They came in slightly under the claimed weight, are nice and stiff, and the torch rear hub has the "angry bee" sound, but it's not at all intrusive, IMO. The 29mm inner width is perfect up to the 2.6" tires that are on the bike. They seat easily, tubeless, and the valves that come with them do have removable cores to make inflation and adding sealant a breeze.
