Industry Nine Torch Trail 27.5" Wheelset

The Industry Nine Torch Trail 27.5" 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. 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 27.5" 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 27.5'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 27.5" Wheelset?

Spendy, top quality bling!
Can't say enough about these. When it comes to an aluminum set of hoops, it doesn't get much more high end than these. I've saw guys running carbon wheelsets get envious of this wheelset.

I got the anodized red, and it's absolutely amazing looking. You don't really grasp what 120pts of engagement does for you until you ride them. Instant engagement. Did I mention how awesome the rear hub sounds when it freewheels?

Like I said, they don't come much nicer than these. The way I see it, yeah you could buy a $2700 set of ENVE's and save about 120ish grams. But I'd rather have two sets of these! If you have the coin, and you're shopping wheelsets, what are you waiting for?

These wheels offer instant engagement. The rims are wide which is really nice. I'll have to wait and see how the aluminum spokes hold up. if you are looking for a nice quiet wheel, this is not it.

Baller wheelset
Needed to replace stock wheelset on my trance sx and these are perfect! So easy to set up tubeless. Mounted super quick and easy. Ive been out a few times and my initial impressions are very good. Fast and stiff. Gonna take a bit to get used to that hub sound though. It's loud.

Light, stiff, instant engagement. I have another set of I9's with a different rim, these feel stronger and look better.

Dear Sweet Cycling Savior
Industry Nine wheels have a special place in my heart. Not only are you getting something 100% made in America you are getting the best hub technology this sport has to offer.

Everything has been thought of by these guys and they do an excellent job making those details sing. I have ridden a lot of high end wheels and if I could ride a bike blind folded I don't think I could tell the difference.

There is nothing missing from these wheels and will never let you down.

Hi there, are the wheels avail in Boost spacing size?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I bought these originally for my Ghost but then I just bought a Yeti SB6C with the boost spacing. I sent these back to I9 and they changed out the hubs to a boost spacing for a fee. So yes, they come in a boost. Buy them as a boost right from the start. BTW, I love these I9's! You will too.
Dear Sir/MAdam,
I am planning to buy your I9 27.5 wheel set but im wondering iof this can be used to my MTB with conventional Quick releas system. appreciate if you can recommend a compatible conversion kit if there's any. thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, end cap adapters are available for this wheelset.

For the front wheel, select the "Quick Release" option on this product page:

For the rear wheel, select the "QRX135" option on this product page:
I ride a 2015 Giant Anthem (Aluminium) and have a thru axel in the front and QR in the back, the current wheelset is Giant Pxc2. Would the Industry Nine torch 27.5 work on my bike and what else would I need to purchase if it will?
Dug on Apr 14, 2016

Yes, this wheelset will work with your bike. You will need to purchase an end cap adapter kit for the rear wheel. Based on the description of your bike in your question, for your rear wheel, you would need the "QRX135" option, listed on this product page:

If your fork's thru-axle is 15mm, the front wheel will work with your fork without any changes needed. If it is 20mm, you'll need the "20mm thru axle" end cap adapter from this product page:
