Your training has been perfect, your cross bike is dialed, but Industry Nine has the secret weapon to maximize your cyclcocross season. I9’s UL CX Disc wheelset is purpose built for the rigors of cross racing, so you know it"ll deftly handle the hairpin turns, off-camber roots, and punchy sprints. I9 starts with their 375 gram Ultralite mountain tubeless rim, which has a generous 21mm internal width for a fat tire profile to give you awesome traction and performance on all terrain. These rims are laced to I9's Torch hubs, and the rear hub features class-leading 60-point, 6-degree engagement to get you through technical sections with instant acceleration. Rugged, lightweight Sapim CX-Ray spokes hold it all together and the result is a 1,340 gram race-ready tubeless, disc-specific equipment advantage. These wheels are also a tremendous option for the gravel riders out there who want increased tire volume to float over chatter and washboard surfaces. Elevate your season with UL CX 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
Rider weight limit: 190 pounds
