Quite possibly the best riding aluminum road wheel on the planet!
The I25 Classic utilizes a 23.2mm wide rim extrusion instead of the traditional 19-19.5mm industry standard. This offers a huge leap in lateral stiffness and strength. Even more important though, is the added sidewall support this rim provides. It allows the use of 10-15 psi lower tire pressures which provides exceptional, tubular-like ride quality and improved cornering grip as well. Add the ability of going Tubeless and you've got the best rim characteristics available. As a bonus the wider rim improves aerodynamics, by allowing a smoother transition for airflow from tire to rim - when coupled with the industry standard 23 and 25c tires.
For 2015 we have also updated the freehub and drive ring assembly. Our road wheels use the same drivering and pawls as the new Torch Moutain hubs, rated to withstand 700 ft/lbs of torque! However, we reduced the pawl count to 3 instead of 6, for lower drag and weight, while still achieving and industry leading (for road hubs) 6 degree engagement. Relocated bearings, and a new freehub seal reduce freehub drag while coasting.
As a final measure, Torch Classic hubs now feature custom Teflon contact seals for the endcaps, which we manufacture in house. They fully seal the hubs from mud and water - tight enough for a muddy CX season, but smooth enough for drag-free road miles.
