Say Hello To Your Dream MTB Wheels
If you've ever ripped Blue Ridge Mountains trails in Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, you know the steep, rocky nonsense that you have to put your bike through. This environment is where the Industry Nine Hydra Enduro S Carbon 29" Wheelset was born. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, Industry Nine employs some of America's best MTB wheel builders who are also seasoned single track shredders.
The Hydra S Carbon series represents a long-standing call from riders looking to pair the lively and durable Hydra S hub platform with I9's proven carbon rim technology. At the heart of the Hydra S Carbon family lies the insanely fast engaging Hydra laced to 28 straight-pull steel spokes. I9's 31mm carbon rim features hookless technology that mates with modern aggressive tires capable of handling the most demanding conditions.
The Enduro 305 features I9's exceptional 6 pawl HYDRA freehub body, which has 690 points of engagement (P.O.E.). This is the number of points at which a rear hub's ratchet mechanism engages per revolution of the cassette.
The wheelset is also a remarkably light 1765g, so weight is not sacrificed for durability.
The wheelset comes pretaped with valve stems included.
If you are looking for the best upgrade possible for your bike, look no further. The Hydra S carbon outperforms its competitors and comes in at a lower price point. Case closed.

The I9 Carbon S wheels are stiff but not harsh. I am a heavier rider at 250lbs these wheels hold the line without punishing feedback. I am very impressed with the balance they were able to build in these wheels. The hub engagement on the Hydra hub is also great on technical climbs when ratcheting the pedals.
