Industry Nine is releasing a new carbon wheelset designed to meet the needs of mountain bikers who roll on mid-sized rubber.
Industry Nine PillarCarbon BC360 highlights
- 27.5in carbon rims
- 36mm internal width
- Tubeless compatible
- Claimed weight of 1,825g
- Available in late October
The PillarCarbon BC360 builds on the success of the company’s alloy-rimed BC360 wheelset. As the name suggests, the carbon rims have an internal width of 36mm, which, according to Industry Nine, should play well high-volume tires from 2.4-3in in width.
The 27.5in carbon rims are laced with 32 of Industry Nine’s proprietary aluminum spokes per wheel to the company’s Torch hubs. Industry Nine covers a multitude of hub and axle standards with this new wheelset, with everything from quick-release to Boost and fat bike axle standards.
The claimed weight for the PillarCarbon BC360 wheelset is 1,825g. Pricing starts at $2,325. (UK and Australian prices have yet to be announced.) Industry Nine expects to begin shipping wheelsets in late October.
Singlespeed Boost and Lefty Supermax hubs
In addition to this new wheelset for plus bikes, the Asheville, North Carolina-based manufacturer is also launching two niche hubs to meet pent-up demand.
First up is a singlespeed-specific 148x12mm rear hub with wider flange spacing and a smaller freehub body with just enough room to fine-tune the chainline. This SS hub is available in 28 and 32-hole versions. Buyers can choose from any of Industry Nine’s 11 anodized colors. Pricing is set at $385.
Cannondale Lefty aficionados have a new high-end front hub option. The new Lefty 2.0 hub is 10mm wider for Lefty SuperMax forks. Buyers can choose from 28 and 32-hole drillings. Industry Nine offers this new one-sided hub for traditional J-bend spokes as well as its alloy straight-pull spokes.
The claimed weight is 190g, and it will set you back $190.
