Industry Nine Announces Six New Wheelsets

The Hydra S, 1/1 Carbon Mountain Wheels, and All-new road/gravel disc options

Asheville, NC –  Industry Nine is excited to announce six new wheelsets that bring our reputation for feature-packed wheelsets delivering outstanding innovation and ride quality to even more riders. Focused on bringing legendary i9 performance to value-oriented wheelsets, the introduction of the Hydra Enduro S Carbon, Hydra Trail S Carbon, 1/1 Enduro S Carbon, 1/1 Trail S Carbon, 1/1 GRCX and 1/1 Trail 650b present riders even more fantastic mountain and drop-bar options across a number of price points.

Hydra Enduro S Carbon and Hydra Trail S CarbonOne of our most requested products becomes a reality. The Enduro Carbon and Trail Carbon wheel models represent a long-standing call from riders seeking to combine the durable and lively Hydra S platform with a carbon rim boasting modern features such as hookless construction and widths that mesh perfectly with aggressive mountain bike rubber. At the heart of the Hydra S Carbon family lies the insanely fast engaging Hydra freehub, giving riders unparalleled control and confidence in the most demanding conditions. 

Our straight-pull S-series hubs use 28 Sapim Race 2.0/1.8/2.0 steel spokes emphasizing a wide bracing angle translating into an agile yet solid foundation. Whether looking for a bomber wheelset that stares unflinchingly at the most technical terrain, or a do-all wheelset that is at home as much on the climbs as it is in fast and rough, the Hydra S Carbon family awaits. MSRP: $1,825

1/1 S Series Carbon One Sheet – Modern technology and features meet timeless design elements to bring riders a product line that performs well above its class.   Wheelsets seldom achieve the intersection of value and performance the 1/1 Carbon range occupies.  The wheels feature a responsive 4° engagement freehub mechanism – providing control during technical climbing, and instant acceleration. Relying on universally-serviceable and economical Sapim j-bend steel spokes laced to the classic flanged hub configuration, ease of ownership is a defining characteristic of the 1/1 Carbon family. 

High tech continues to come into focus with the Trail Carbon and Enduro Carbon rims. Modern and hookless rim profiles keep impact strength high and repel pinch flats while the refined layup schedules place material where needed most, cutting unneeded mass. The end result is an emphasis on ride quality, all condition durability, and approachability that will elevate the rig and rider opting to mount a pair of 1/1 Carbon wheels.  MSRP: $1,575

1/1 GRCX and 1/1 TR650b Up for anything wheelsets designed to showcase the versatility of drop bar bikes and enhance the experience for any rider. Expanding our product family in the drop bar category, the 1/1 GRCX and 1/1 Trail 650b bring mixed surface readiness in a no-nonsense package. The expanded collection is designed to bring Industry Nine performance to new riders and new routes. Our advanced 1/1 Road drive mechanism keeps power transmission constant and predictable, available at a split second calling courtesy of the 4 degree freehub engagement. 

Perfect for backcountry or touring adventures, the familiar layout of classic flanged hubs laced with 28 Sapim j-bend spokes creates a proven structure for the GRCX or Trail 650b rim to orbit. When covering ground on rides that see road and gravel, the 700c GRCX rim shines. For burlier rides requiring more rubber on the ground, the 650b Trail rim option supports tires for as wide as your drop bar frame will permit. See what is out there from your front door, and make the 1/1 GRCX and Trail 650b part of your escape plans. MSRP: $750
