Industry Nine Torch Pillar Trail 29"
The Industry Nine Torch Trail 29" wheelset delivers a new paradigm for the backcountry riding experience. With an incomparable stiffness to weight ratio and wide, tubeless-ready rims, the Trail wheels destroy technical singletrack. The Pillar Carbon version of the Torch Trail is an excellent choice for the discerning trail rider and brings a new level of responsiveness to the Torch Trail lineup. Boasting a 28mm outer/24mm inner rim width, the Torch Pillar Trail makes running tubeless tires a walk in the park. These wheels are equally at home turning laps at your local trail system or venturing into the backcountry on an epic multi-day adventure.
The Industry Nine Torch Trail 29" Pillar Carbon wheelset utilizes Industry Nine's highly-praised Torch hubs, which act as the centerpiece to this incredible wheelset. The Torch hub and spoke platform offer substantial weight savings without sacrificing strength or performance. The Torch Trail 29's tapered spokes are thicker without being heavy, the hubshell is lighter without giving up strength, and the freehub driver is thinner while still maintaining an exceptionally quick engagement. Industry Nine maximizes durability by utilizing Teflon shields and O-rings that snap onto the hub endcaps. This protective measure, combined with two seals on each bearing, helps to keep grit out and significantly increases bearing life. Torch hubs also offer the convenience of compatibility with most modern axle sizes. The Torch hub allows you swap end caps to adapt to new standards or changes in setup as you switch your wheels to another bike. Precision, style, and all kinds of compatibility options€”what's not to like about the Industry Nine Torch Trail 29" wheelset?
New to the Industry Nine family, the PillarCarbon line-up of mountain wheels use tubeless-ready, TwinPillar hookless bead walls to beef up the strength-to-weight ratio and overall ride quality. By teaming up with a cycling-wheel extraordinaire, each PillarCarbon rim is handmade by Reynolds Cycling in Sandy, Utah, USA. In doing so, base fiber, epoxy resins and fiber orientation is assigned to each of the 5 specific rim regions; bead wall, tire channel, side wall, spoke bed and spoke face. What this does is greatly increase stiffness, impact resistance, and spoke pull-through strength, all while reducing the overall weight. Additionally, rim profiles and lay-up schedules are designed to maximize lateral stiffness and still control vertical deflection to promote improved traction and an enhanced ride quality. Paying attention to the small details, the PillarCarbon wheels are designed with angle-accurate spoke hole orientation to reduce spoke bed stress and improve spoke longevity.
