Strong hoops on a lightweight fast hub.  These wheels are built to win Enduro races.

DT Swiss XM481 Rim

Riders who like the idea of giving their tires some extra volume and support will find the ideal partner with the XM 481. Its full 30 mm of inner width together with a minimal hook and perfect tubeless compatibility make it ready to tackle all demanding trails, both up and down the mountain.

Industry Nine Hydra Rear Hubs

Hydra Classic mountain hubs are loaded with features every rider will appreciate such as revolutionary 0.52° engagement (690 points of engagement), generously low weights and an intuitive layout that can be serviced without any proprietary tools. Our range boasts a universe of standard options in terms of axle fit, spoke hole drillings, disc rotor mounting, freehub bodies, and colours.

Industry Nine Hydra Classic hubs are designed for off-road punishment in messy environments. Hydra Classic hubs feature large diameter conventional flanges to improve wheel stiffness and allow the use of standard j-bend spokes.  The Hydra Classic rear ISO Boost MTB hub features an oversize butted 20/17mm axle, and a heavy duty gearbox with a 690 points of engagement for quick power transfer.  

Industry Nine hubs are 100% USA designed and manufactured in Asheville, North Carolina. 

Competition Spokes

This is one of the most versatile spokes in the DT Swiss spoke range. DT Competition gets its special strength from cold forging. This makes it not only extremely durable but thanks to the thinner middle section, it is 48 g lighter than a spoke with a constant diameter of 1.8 mm. The balanced relation between strength and weight of its 2.0 mm counterpart allows for a wide range of uses, from road wheels to super-light Enduro MTB wheels. Weight: from 311 g for 64 spokes at a length of 264 mm.

Squorx Prolock Nipples

Pro Lock is a process where a dual compound, adhesive liquid is injected into the nipple thread, allowing for extremely durable wheel builds. By threading the nipple onto the spoke the adhesive is activated and starts to harden. Re-truing the wheel is still possible after the adhesive has hardened completely, with only a minimal decrease of its thread-lock function.
