Product Description
Hydra Ultralite 235 29 Boost Wheelset by Industry Nine
When Industry Nine first teased that it might have a new engagement system for its mountain hubs, we were more than a little excited. After all, its previous design on its Torch hubs has been one of our favorite freehub designs since it first broke into the ranks a dozen or so years ago. So, if you are building up a cross-country rocket or a light duty trail machine, we would whole-heartedly recommend its all-new Hydra Ultralite 235 29 Boost Wheelset. Sporting a goldilocks rim width for popular 2. 0-2. 4in trail rubber, the popular Ultralite rim gets laced up to I9's new Hydra freehub that offers the quickest engagement we're aware of in a pawl system. As such, it has absolutely zero lag when you put any power to the pedals making quick work of technical trails and ledgy climbs when ratcheting the pedals are a must. Hydra is the fruit of the labor of over two and a half years of meticulous engineering and development in its Asheville, NC facilities and testing on the nearby trails in Pisgah National Forrest. The end result is a freehub with lightning fast 0. 52-degree engagement. And before you argue that there are instantaneous hubs already on the market, they all use sprag clutches which feel mushy in comparison to a proper pawl and drive ring set up. The Hydra hubs are an update to Industry Nine's previous drive system, and once you have a look at the internals, you'll begin to spot the differences. You'll notice a similar pawl layout in the Torch system with the meticulous CNC machining the brand is known for. Like the old Torch hub, the Hydra features a 6 pawl design, however, the drive ring gets a whopping 115 teeth, as opposed to the 60-tooth design used in the Torch, creating an impressive 690 points of engagement, nearly six-times quicker than is predecessor! These 690 points of contact translate directly to the snappiest hubs we've ever seen, with only 0. 52-degrees of engagement, meaning you'll be getting on the gas instantly and solidly. You'll be g...
