Industry Nine's Torch Series hubs offer amazing anodized color quality and the lightness and of a truly superior hub. The moment you see these hubs in person, it's easy to tell why i9 is known to make one of the best-looking hubs on the market. Large diameter disk flanges are angled to lower spoke stress, improve wheel stiffness, and braking torque transfer.
Industry Nine components are manufactured in the USA, start to finish. Everything. Each hub goes through layers of CNC machine processes. Bearings, rings and other parts are separately machined and scrutinized by quality control. Hubs are individually polished and/or anodized, and laser-etched in-house. The production shelves are constantly moving with outgoing orders and incoming fresh parts from the machine shop. A wire EDM machine, which cuts hardened steel by using an electrical current, is used to cut the teeth and pawls to maximize strength and accuracy. Industry Nine really goes the whole nine yards with their components. If you don't believe it, here's a video to help:
