Ultralite CX 240 TRA Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless by Industry Nine
Carbon fiber rims continue to showcase on range-topping wheelsets for a reason: they're much lighter so accelerations and decelerations are easier, and stiffness is improved for enhanced handling and added responsiveness. It's no secret that dropping rotational weight pays more dividends than static weight, and new wheels can make for one of the most significant upgrades on your bike.

The Ultralite CX 240 TRA showcases I9's new Torch Road Alloy platform using 24 aluminum spokes per wheel in a 2:1 lacing pattern to keep weight down and better balance spoke tensions on either side of the wheels. Instead of the steel spokes we're used to seeing on its drop bar wheel offerings, the new TRS wheels use 7075 aluminum and thread directly into the hub shell. As such, the spokes are straight pull and they have a 25% greater cross section then comparable 14/15 double butted steel spokes which helps provide more tens...
