With its home base surrounded by some of the rockiest, rootiest, highly technical terrain in the country, it's no surprise that Industry Nine has been churning out nearly bombproof enduro wheels for almost a decade. Its most recent addition, the Enduro Pillar Carbon 27.5in Boost Wheelset is the result of miles upon miles of testing, re-building, and refinining to create one seriously tough and lightweight set of wheels.
Industry Nine collaborated with the composite wizards at Reynolds Cycling to create the Pillar Carbon rims, which means they benefit from Reynolds' MR5 technology. It focuses on five key elements—spoke face, nipple bed, tire channel, rim sidewall, and hook bead—to optimize resin chemistry and carbon layup for the structural loads of each component. The result is the Pillar Carbon rim with Twin Pillar hookless bead walls, which comprise of a beefy, 26mm internal width and fully molded bead walls for increased impact resistance compared to rims with post-mold machined bead walls. This design, found exclusively on Industry Nine’s Pillar line of wheels, offers an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and ride quality characteristics in a tubeless-ready package.
The Enduro Pillar Carbon uses 32 straight-pull aluminum spokes per wheel for added durability over the more commonly used steel options. Boasting a 25% wider cross section than similar 14/15 double-butted spokes, Industry Nines aluminum spokes provide increased tensile strength for a stiffer, more responsive ride. At the center, I9 utilizes its smooth-spinning Torch hubs, which we're happy to say are compatible with all axle standards via separately available end caps. With a driver boasting six pawls, the rear hub provides a 3 degree/120 point engagement range for lightning fast responsiveness and instant power transfer the second you push on the pedals.
