Industry Nine Ultralite Pillar Carbon 24 Hole Wheelset
ULTRALITE PILLARCARBON 24H 29”
The Ultralite Carbon 24h 29” wheelset is the fastest wheelset available when it comes to covering ground on mixed terrain. Whether you are hammering your local trails or throwing on a number plate, the Ultralite Carbon 24H wheels offers an exceptional balance between weight and performance. The 24 Hole 2/1 lacing pattern and feathery Carbon rims offer incredibly low rotational weight and excellent tire support - with a 28mm outer/24mm inner rim width.
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.
