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.  


CUSTOM

Like all of our System Wheels, you can customize your hubs and spoke colors in any combination for an additional fee. We offer 11 custom anodized colors: Orange, Purple, Turquoise, Lime, Gold, Green, Blue, Red, Pink, Silver and Black. Visit our AnoLab Custom Wheel Designer to customize your i9s.

LIFETIME WARRANTY

Industry Nine has gone the extra mile to ensure we offer the best carbon wheels available. We are so confident in our wheels that we are now offering a limited lifetime warranty on all wheelsets sold after January 1, 2018.

The limited lifetime warranty applies to all Industry Nine branded complete carbon wheelsets. Under the limited lifetime warranty, Industry Nine certifies all wheels to be free from defects in materials and workmanship* and applies to the original owner.**

Industry Nine carbon wheel systems are engineered to be ridden every day and are designed and tested to ensure the strength of the wheels far exceed the loads incurred during their intended use.***  You can rest assured that if you are on an Industry Nine Carbon wheelset, we have you covered.

*The warranty applies to all original owners who purchase their wheels from an Industry Nine Authorized Dealer or directly from Industry Nine; wheels purchased through third-party sites are excluded from the warranty.  
**Keep in mind that wheels (as with most moving parts) require periodic maintenance and service.  Bearings are considered a wear item and if properly serviced, should last several years, but are not covered under the lifetime warranty.  The exception is our Enduro XD-15 Hybrid Ceramic bearings (which are an upgrade option).  Any wheel that has been altered, improperly maintained or installed, or modified from its original build will not be eligible for this warranty.
***If you are riding the wheels within the scope of their designated use, we have you covered.  If you hit a tree at 30mph or come up short on a double while riding your road bike at the bike park and break a wheel - we have a great crash replacement program.
