Industry Nine’s C72 are the ultimate racing wheelset, and they are the fastest wheels I9 has ever made. The 72mm-wide Reynolds Aero rims with DET technology utilize a sharp trailing edge to maintain better air attachment in crosswinds, resulting in a faster, more stable wheel in windy conditions. The rims’ performance is matched by I9’s awesome Torch hubs, which have class-leading engagement with multiple drag-reducing features to keep you flying down the road. The whole package is laced together with Sapim CX-Ray spokes using I9’s 2/1 lacing pattern for reduced weight with maximum stiffness. Take every competition by storm with the insanely fast C72 wheels from Industry Nine.

Featured on all Torch-hub 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
