The exquisite anodized finish of Industry Nine's i25 Road Disc Wheelset might be eye-catching, but it does nothing for the seat-of-the-pants experience. Taking care of that is a redesigned Torch hub, 2:1-laced Sapim spokes, and a 23. 2mm-wide tubeless-ready rim. All of this adds up to an incredible performance value that's equally at home racing or training. As always, the artfully machined Torch hubset is built in North Carolina by people who ride hard. It's the same driver used in the Torch mountain hubset but, to reduce drag, three pawls are used instead of six. On that same note, Industry Nine manufactures its own Teflon contact seals to defend against tenacious 'cross mud, while still remaining drag-free for stacking on the road miles. Unlike I9's mountain wheelsets, the I-series makes use of Sapim's trusted CX-Ray stainless steel spokes. These forged, bladed spokes have a reputation as a strong, stiff option for securing a hub to a rim. Enhancing the strength is a 2:1 lacing pattern on the 24-spoke rear wheel, with eight of those spokes on the non-drive side, and 16 on the drive side. The result is reduced wind-up for phenomenal power transfer, but with the lightness that comes with reduced spoke counts. Industry Nine forgoes traditional 19-19. 5mm rim widths in favor of a 23. 2mm-wide extrusion. This allows the use of 10-15psi lower tire pressures, and provides a tubular-like ride quality along with enhanced cornering grip. Add the ability of going tubeless and those characteristics are only enhanced. And as an added bonus, when coupled with 23 and 25mm tires, the wider rims provide better airflow for enhanced aerodynamics. The Industry Nine i25 Disc Brake Road Wheelset - Tubeless is available with either a Shimano/SRAM 11-speed freehub, and in Black/black or Black/red. They are compatible with six-bolt rotors.
