The heart of the Trail S is an all-new hub design - Industry Nine’s first straight-pull steel spoke mountain bike hubset. Trail S wheelsets employ a 28 hole stacked hub flange maximizing the spoke bracing angle to increase lateral stiffness. Spokes are laced tangentially to the hub flange, which promotes long term durability, since opposing spoke forces cancel each other out, removing most of the spoke stress from the hub flanges. This also allows greater control over bearing press tolerances during the machining phase of hub production, since the hub shell is not under tension.

Internally, Torch S-series hubs employ three A2 tool steel pawls and 60 tooth drivering, which are cut with a wire EDM process for exceptional accuracy and strength. This provides a 6 degree/60 point engagement range, allowing for exceptional power transfer and responsiveness in technical terrain. The S-series hubs featured on the Trail S utilize established and proven Torch Mountain system components. Axles, seals, endcap kits, drivering, pawls, and bearing sizes are shared throughout the Industry Nine Mountain, Fatbike and Torch Classic Flanged Mountain hub lineup allowing for easy access to replacement parts.  S-series hubs are also directly compatible with Industry Nine’s existing 6 pawl freehubs (which are available as an upgrade option).

 Tying the hub and rims together, the Trail S wheels utilize Sapim Race butted spokes and Secure Lock DS nipples for years of problem free use and near universal serviceability.

To complete the package, Trail S wheels feature an all-new rim profile. Featuring design elements introduced with our premium aluminum spoked Torch Mountain System wheelsets, the new Trail S rim is the perfect balance of weight, width, and features. Making use of 6000 series Performance Alloy, the Trail S complements modern mountain bike tires with dimensions that provide excellent tire support and a competitive weight. Sporting a 24.5mm inner width, 28.5mm outer width, minimal bead hooks, and an optimized bead seat profile, the new Trail S rims offer exceptional tire performance with or without tubes.  Wheels ship ready to ride with Industry Nine tubeless tape and valves installed. Trail S rims feature laser etched graphics, which offer a refined and neutral aesthetic that complements any bike.
