Whole new bike
- I've put it through the wringer
This wheelset took my Epic, base comp aluminum model, to a whole new level. Just cannot tell you how much difference it made. Made my 2500.00 bike feel like a 5k bike.

Industry Nine is one of my favorite companies. If you're building a bike, I think that you should invest more in the wheels than anything else. Even if you ride the stiffest frame in the world, noodly wheels can grenade your bike's ride quality and handling. Rotating weight is also far more significant than static weight. (Don't ask me why, I just know that it is.) This is what makes carbon wheels so attractive. The obvious issue with carbon wheels is that they're pricy. If you have the means to spend a couple of thousand bucks on wheels, do it! I'd highly recommend Santa Cruz's Reserve collection. That said, if you don't want to star in "Honey I sold the kids," and you have to make take some steps to keep the price of your bike in check, a high-quality alloy wheelset is the ticket. Industry Nine absolutely rules the high-end alloy market. Their wheels are hand-made in North Carolina around their phenomenal Hydra hubs. These are the smartest wheels that you can buy for your trail bike, full stop. Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
