All I ever could want!

Rating:
The Good:

They look great, very strong, durable, stiff, 26mm inner width, 120 Points of engagement

The Bad:

Price compared to mid level and budget wheels, proprietary spokes

Overall Review:

This is the second set of Industry Nine wheels I have had, and the past seven months has been flawless. The wheels have much more lateral stiffness compared to the stock wheels that came on my Troy Carbon. The 26mm internal width is adequate, but not as wide as some of the newest offerings (I am actually perfectly fine with this). Some of the best features of any I9 wheelset is their super quick 120 POI. This can come in handy of technical climbs when you need to ratchet the cranks. The hub mechanism has proven very reliable and makes a nice Bzzzzz noise as you ride down the trails. After the first few rides, I checked the spoke tension then have not touched them since.

Now some people may not like the idea of proprietary parts such as the fully machined spokes that these wheels use, but they are very sturdy. I have only broken 2-3 spokes in the past 4 years on I9 wheels. I9 is nice and gives you a few spares with your purchase of new wheels just in case. This is pretty much a non issue even with all of the East Coast rocks.

If you are looking for a top notch wheelset (available in carbon too), something made in the US, and some extra bling, then you do not need to go any further. These are what you need.

Spokes Our proprietary machined 7075-T651 aluminum spoke is equal in tensile strength to any 14-gauge or 14/15 DB spoke available. In many ways, the Industry Nine spoke is much stronger, because we have removed all the weak points (known as stress risers) inherent in the design of a traditional hooked steel spoke.
Nipples Machined into the spoke as a one piece solution still using a traditional size spoke wrench (Park Tool SW-0, .126” /15 ga)
