Product Description

When Industry Nine shook up the knobby-tire world, the burgeoning 29er movement was limited to road wheels wearing hiking boots. Industry Nine saw potential, and developed a ground-breaking wheelset that addressed the nagging issues that prevented 29ers from shining. The Trail 24H Wheelset builds...

Weaknesses:    No centerlock option

Bottom Line:   
I have these wheels mounted on a XT'd Niner EMD 9 with Race King 2.2's front and rear. I've also run them on my 1x10 Epic Comp 29er. This wheel set totally changes both bikes for the better.

-The light weight (1540 grams total with nipples and tape) leads to incredible acceleration. I could instantly feel a difference climbing and my times reflected it.
-On the trail, I prefer the Torch rear hub to any I've used. The 120 POE could be called excessive, but it shows up in a big way when picking through technical climbs and rocky sections.
-23.4mm inner width really lets your tires spread out, giving the best possible footprint. These rims maximize the grip on the 2.2 Race Kings I fitted and setup was extremely easy.
-I haven't had too much go wrong with this wheel set, but I do wreck violently and frequently so it's not uncommon for to break a spoke or need an adjustment. The folks at I9 have been outstanding. They are all avid riders and really just love the world of cycling in a genuine, down to earth way. I am currently switching over to I9 exclusively and it's partially because of the people and company.

-Really wish they had a center lock option so that I could run RT99's like with my DT Swiss hubs. I would imagine that true DH riders are even more annoyed by that, but there are a lot of great rotor options out there. Hopefully CL will be offered in the future.

All in all, I love these wheels. The acceleration and control compare with carbon and ultralight type models, but they still have a 23.4 ID and great stiffness. Sell all your other wheels, buy a set, and never look back.
