Enduro Carbon 27.5”

Industry Nine introduced its first “Enduro” labeled wheelset in 2006 in response to demand from aggressive trail riders.  With some of the most rocky and root infested trails in the country, and over 1,000 miles of singletrack within a 45 mile radius of downtown Asheville, the Pisgah National forest, Dupont State Forest, and additional trail systems in the area, provide the ultimate proving ground for Mountain Bike equipment.  Our original Enduro wheelset was born from rider requests to have a wheelset that would match the performance of long travel full suspension bikes and riders who were pushing the envelope on technical trails. The Enduro Carbon 27.5” wheelset is the ultimate extension of the Enduro wheel concept.  With a 26+ mm inner width, and a wide, stiff carbon rim, paired to 32 oversized aluminum spokes and our 120 point freehub, the Enduro wheelset is ready to take on anything you throw at it.   Whether you are trying to nail a line on a technical descent, clawing your way up a root infested climb, or pinning on a number plate at your local “Enduro”, the Enduro Carbon 27.5” has you covered on all counts!



The Genesis of PillarCarbon

Industry Nine is proud to introduce our PillarCarbon line-up of mountain bike wheels. Our exclusive PillarCarbon rims use our TwinPillar hookless bead walls, are tubeless-ready, and offer excellent strength to weight ratio and ride quality characteristics. The PillarCarbon range represents the most advanced, no-compromise rims we have ever made - mated to our Torch hub and spoke chassis. For testing and manufacture, Industry Nine teamed up with one of the most respected and established companies in cycling composites technology, Reynolds Cycling. PillarCarbon rims can only be found on Industry Nine’s Ultralite Carbon 24h 29”, Trail Carbon 29”, Trail Carbon 24h 27.5” and Enduro Carbon 27.5” wheels.  


PillarCarbon Rim Features


Reynolds Cycling Fabrication

  • Mountain Rim 5 (MR5) precision assembly assigns base fiber, epoxy resins and fiber orientation to each of the five specific rim regions - bead wall, tire channel, side wall, spoke bed and spoke face - resulting in superior stiffness, weight, impact resistance and spoke pull-through strength.

  • Rim profiles and lay-up schedules are designed to maximize lateral stiffness but still allow controlled vertical deflection to increase traction and ride quality.

  • Spoke holes feature angle-accurate orientation which minimizes spoke bed stress and promotes long term spoke durability.


TwinPillar hookless bead walls

  • Increased inner rim widths and optimized hook heights achieve maximum tire performance at lower pressures.

  • Near Net construction allows the bead wall to be fully formed during the molding process, eliminating post-mold machining which reduces risk of delamination and increases impact resistance.

  • The TwinPillar bead walls are formed using continuous fibers wrapped around the top of the wall, further increasing strength and impact resistance.

  • Tubeless Ready and UST tires fit securely due to specific profile and diameter of bead shelf, which delivers excellent pressure retention and burp-free performance.
