Industry Nine Trail 32 pillar Carbon Wheelset
TRAIL CARBON 29”
The Trail Carbon wheelset offers a new paradigm for the backcountry riding experience. With an exceptional stiffness/weight ratio and wide tubeless ready rims the trail wheels pick apart technical singletrack. Using a 28mm outer/24mm inner width rim and 32 butted aluminum spokes, the Trail Carbon offers increased lateral stiffness over their lighter cousins and the added piece of mind that 32 spokes bring for long rides in remote terrain. Possibly the most versatile 29” wheelset made, the Trail Carbon 29 will take your riding to another level.
THE GENESIS OF PILLARCARBON
Our exclusive PillarCarbon rims use our TwinPillar hookless bead walls, are tubeless-ready, and offer excellent strength to weight ratio and ride quality characteristics. The PillarCarbon range represents the most advanced, no-compromise rims we have ever made - mated to our Torch hub and spoke chassis. For testing and manufacture, Industry Nine teamed up with one of the most respected and established companies in cycling composites technology, Reynolds Cycling.
PILLARCARBON RIM FEATURES
Mountain Rim 5 (MR5) precision assembly assigns base fiber, epoxy resins and fiber orientation to each of the five specific rim regions - bead wall, tire channel, side wall, spoke bed and spoke face - resulting in superior stiffness, weight, impact resistance and spoke pull-through strength.
Rim profiles and lay-up schedules are designed to maximize lateral stiffness but still allow controlled vertical deflection to increase traction and ride quality.
Spoke holes feature angle-accurate orientation which minimizes spoke bed stress and promotes long term spoke durability.
TWINPILLAR NO HOOK BEAD WALLS
Increased inner rim widths and optimized hook heights achieve maximum tire performance at lower pressures.
Near Net construction allows the bead wall to be fully formed during the molding process, eliminating post-mold machining which reduces risk of delamination and increases impact resistance.
The TwinPillar bead walls are formed using continuous fibers wrapped around the top of the wall, further increasing strength and impact resistance.
Tubeless Ready and UST tires fit securely due to specific profile and diameter of bead shelf, which delivers excellent pressure retention and burp-free performance.
