Always striving to create wheelsets to cover the needs and wants of every rider, Industry Nine is pleased to introduce our all-new BackCountry450 to our Torch system off-road wheelsets. Designed as a "plus size" rim to accommodate 2.8" to 3.8" tires the BackCountry450 is a true, singletrack-bred wheelset ready to challenge any terrain. Following the lead of our second generation mountain rim family, the BC450 takes design cues from the Ultralite235, Trail245 and Enduro305. What that means to the rider is a 45mm inner width/49mm outer width hoop that sets up and retains the tire with the ease and confidence of any other Industry Nine wheelset. Whether building a faster wheelset for the Fat Bike or putting the crowning achievement on a new plus rig, we can lace the BackCountry450 to both the 32h Torch Mountain system chassis or our 32h Torch Fat Bike chassis, the BackCountry450 is poised to make any bike an all new ride.
