Ultralite 235 series wheels are designed for XC race-style mountain biking. Featuring Industry Nine's proprietary Hydra hubsets for ease of conversion and high engagement as well as aluminum spokes, these wheels are 100% made in Industry Nine's Asheville, NC facility. Their spoke design allows them to eliminate the J-bend and the spoke/nipple interface. Their spokes thread directly into the hub shell with a larger diameter thread than the main spoke body, eliminating weakness at the thread. This increases the surface contact area by more than 200% over a standard 14g spoke and nipple combination for greater stiffness. They also feature an updated Ultralite rim that's wider for better tire stability and lower sidewalls for dent resistance and tubeless tire retention.
- Race-ready wheelset that is one of the lightest in its price category
- The Ultralite 24h 375g disc specific aluminum clincher rim (25mm outer/21mm inner width) features a tubeless ready profile
- Proprietary aluminum spokes thread into hub, have flats built in for traditional spoke wrenches and do not require nipples (rear-drive side 2.9/2.7mm butted, non drive 2.9mm; front-disc side 2.9/2.7mm butted, non disc 2.9 mm)
