Every trick in the book.
If you’re gonna go from solid trail rider to segment legend, the first thing you should do is upgrade your hoops to Industry Nine’s Pillar Carbon Trail 24H 27.5in Wheelset. They’re stiff, they’re light, and they’ve got a killer hubset, so if you’re looking for a wheelset to boost your bike from ol’ reliable to legendary, look no further.
First, the rim. I9 teamed up with the team at Reynolds to build a wheel that’s different all the way through the build, from spokes to nipples to sidewalls to bead. Each bit of the wheel has a special carbon layup for the perfect strength to weight ratio and killer ride quality, and the wheels are tubeless ready, as you’d expect. Industry Nine opted to make the spokes from aluminum instead of steel to save weight, but in a unique design twist, made the thread of the spoke thicker than the body, which adds strength where you really need it. If that’s not enough, the spokes thread directly into the hub for increased stiffness and easy truing.
Holding everything together is the new Torch hub, which sports 120 points of powerful contact and three-degree engagement that makes acceleration just about instantaneous. It’s also been optimized for seriously reduced drag, so every pedal stroke gets damn close to 100% efficiency.
