Today, North Carolina brand Industry Nine introduced four new models of carbon wheels in their lineup which are offered at more affordable prices than their top of the line models. To be exact, the new offerings break down to two models, the Hydra S Carbon and the 1/1 S Carbon, both of which are available in trail and enduro versions, for a total of four options, all with a lifetime warranty. Both models share the same rim, with different specs between the trail and enduro versions, while the Hydra S and 1/1 S also differ in their hubs and spokes.

The wheels of the Hydra S Carbon series are built around the Hydra hubs with 690 engagement points laced with 28 Sapim double butted spokes (2.0 / 1.8 / 2.0) and straight pull for each wheel. The price is $ 1,825 for the pair, both for the trail version and for the enduro version.
