Industry Nine SRAM XX1 Hub and XC29 Carbon Wheels

29er News Wheels

Industry Nine is introducing the XD1 driver FH body, making Industry Nine wheels compatible with SRAM’s new XX1 groupset. The driver body will be available on new wheelsets, and as a retrofit to make an existing wheelset compatible. No other parts beside the driver body are required. The new freehub is internally identical to their current freehub, so axles, end caps and/or spacers, bearings, pawls, and springs are compatible with the new setup. They are currently taking orders, and should be shipping within the next few days.

XC29 Carbon
Industry Nine’s friends at Reynolds Composites supplied them with their tubeless-compatible, 29″ hoop, for a special project. Sporting an inner width of 21mm, depth of 28mm, and weight of 430g, they’re building complete wheelsets to 1640g. A few of I9 employees at their shop have had the opportunity to ride some tester sets and they’ve blown away with their stiffness and durability. Since they have limited quantities on-hand, these promise to move quickly!


I9 Belt Buckle
Just in time for the holiday season, they’re now producing a run of belt buckles, the perfect gift for any I9 fan or rider. Starting with a chunk of aluminum, we machine it down to our iconic “9” logo, bend it on a press to the perfect curvature, then add loop and hook hardware. The buckle is available in a subtle Grey/Silver motif, or a louder Red/Black scheme, and retails for $30. Check out their web store for photos and details.
