When we set out to improve our previous wheels, one of our goals was to make them even lighter and stronger. That wasn’t easy. To do it, we needed to reduce the height of our beadwalls. The shorter the beadwalls are, the less likely they are to bend and break.
Stan’s already uses this technology in their existing product line, so we reached out and asked if we could collaborate. Our S-wheels use their patented BST technology, which helps us reduce our beadwall heights while optimizing tire fit and mounting.
An asymmetric rim means that instead of the spoke holes being drilled through the center of the rim, they’re slightly offset. Doing this allows us to improve the bracing angle of the spokes. Because our rims are so wide we get to make them even more offset than normal. Our larger offset allows us to tension both sides of the wheels nearly equally, which results in a stronger and more durable wheelset.
TOUGHENED HYBRID CARBON
We don’t call the material in our carbon wheels ?“toughened” because they went to boot camp. The name comes from the combination of resin materials we use in our carbon layup to get the right feel and strength. Part of that formula is the toughened resin we use in the beadwall, which allows them to flex and shrug off impacts. Supporting those beadwalls is carbon with a stiffer resin to make sure they hold their shape.
LOGO VS. I9
Our I9 wheels are built with Industry Nine’s Hydra Hubs. These American made hubs are a rider favorite due to their light weight, durability, and instant response. We lace these hubs with bladed Sapim CX-Ray spokes, which are among the lightest and toughest on the market.
Our I9 Wheels are built with the best components you can buy, but if you’re on a budget, our Logo wheels deliver an almost identical ride feel at a similar weight, for hundreds less. We designed our hubs to be tough as hell and spec them with high quality Enduro bearings. They’re laced to our rims with Sapim’s strongest and lightest double-butted mountain bike spoke.

WE HAVE YOUR BACK
Our rims are backed by a seven-year warranty. If it’s our fault, we’ll fix them. We also offer a low cost ?“accident replacement” program, just in case you drive your bike into the garage…
NO PROPRIETARY PARTS
We build our wheels with readily available parts, so you can source replacements wherever you go. By using standard J-bend spokes and external square nipples, we’ve also made our wheels easy to service.
