Wide, light, and stiff. The C29 comes in at an impressive 1260 grams, yet offers a generous 17.5mm inner/25mm outer width, and 29mm rim height. The Industry Nine Torch Carbon C-29 Wheelset is stiff enough to offer responsive cornering, but where these wheels really shine is when the road turns uphill. The combination of low weight and Industry Nine's stiff 2:1 rear lacing pattern yield instantaneous acceleration and will see you setting new personal benchmarks on your local climbs and going after KOMs. When it comes time to cover ground on flat terrain, the combination of a wider rim for improved airflow from tire to rim, and a 29mm depth offer enough of an Aero advantage to keep you rolling.
For the latest version of the Industry Nine Torch Carbon C-29 Wheelset, a 24 hole 2/1 lacing pattern is used on the rear wheel. This pattern reduces wheel weight and works to even out spoke tension and maintain maximum durability. Torch rear wheels feature 16 spokes on the rear drive side flange, paired with 8 opposing spokes. Due to the rear wheel dish caused by the cassette on the rear wheel, this orientation evens out spoke tension. As a result, peak stress loads are reduced on the spokes and rim, as well as the fatigue cycle incurred in a traditional 24 spoke wheel - allowing a lower spoke count and lighter weight, without the durability issues and increased rim weights commonly associated with low spoke count wheels.
The road version of the Torch freehub is much like the mountain version but with a few added adjustments for road cycling performance. The pawl count has been reduced from 6 to 3 for lower drag and weight while still achieving an impressive 6 degree engagment. Relocated bearings and a new freehub seal are added to the mix as well to reduce freehub drag while coasting. As a final precaution, Torch hubs feature custom Teflon seals for endcaps, which are manufactured in house at Industry Nine's facility in Asheville, North Carolina. These seals fully protect the hubs from mud, water, and other messy gunk. Tough enough for CX yet smooth enough for road racing performance, the Industry Nine Torch Carbon C-29 Wheelset is a top-shelf wheelset.
