If you spent most of last year eyeing those beautiful Industry Nine carbon fat bike wheels but couldn't quite stomach the cost, the Industry Nine Big Rig 845 Fat Bike Wheelset might be just up your alley. Boasting the same smooth rolling hub set as it's much more expensive cousins, the 845 brings light and durable aluminum rims to the table to cut the price in half while maintaining the rocking fun ride we've come to expect from Industry Nine wheels.
Industry Nine uses its own Big Rig 845 Alloy rims for this wheelset, featuring 32 spoke holes for a stiff, durable ride that will glide over even the crustiest snow patch. An 84.5mm internal width provides a huge platform for your favorite beefed-out fat bike tire, and the tubeless-ready rim bead lets you ditch the tubes to save rotating weight and run lower pressures for an even cushier ride.
At the center, the front hub features two bearings with external o-ring seals, and the rear hub boasts four bearings with external Teflon seals and a silicone freehub seal to keep things friction-free and rolling smoothly even in the coldest of weather. The hub grease is rated to -40 degrees Fahrenheit, so even the most hard-core, cold-tolerant riders can get their snow fix on.
The Industry Nine Big Rig 845 Fat Bike Wheelset is available with either a hyperglide 9/10 speed or an XD freehub body. Front axle width options include 15x135mm and 15x150mm, both paired with a rear 12x197mm thru-axle.
