[Press Release] – Industry Nine is excited to announce our newest product, the iRiX (eye-ricks) headset.
iRiX is a composite of “Iris” the Greek goddess and personification of the rainbow, and the Roman numeral IX. We feel this name embodies the core DNA of Industry Nine. iRiX accompanies our A35 and A318 stems bringing riders top of the line, fully customizable cockpit upgrades. iRiX bearing cups, top covers and
top caps are machined, anodized and laser-etched using US-sourced 7075 aluminum in Asheville, NC USA. Available in every common modern size and 11 lustrous colors, there is an iRiX to complement any build.
- 11 Colors available
- Matching 2.5, 5, 10, and 20mm headset spacers available
- EC, ZS, IS and Mix & match options
- Price – Single color: $160-$190 / Combo: $175-$205
- 440C Stainless steel bearings
- Lifetime warranty
Ease of service and promoting bearing life are the core design benchmarks we sought to accomplish when bringing iRiX to life.
Features such as split crown races and top cover compression rings allow for an easy tool free installation and removal. Two available top cover heights allow the rider to hone their perfect fit or aesthetic. The top covers also boast an integrated adjustable shim stacking function to dial in the ideal headtube clearance on IS applications. To keep the grit and grime at bay, the crown race and top cover employ removable and replaceable silicone lip seals to keep the sealed bearings contaminant-free. iRiX uses industry- leading 440c Stainless Steel bearings with a lifetime warranty to keep your turns as smooth as on day one.
To be expected with Industry Nine components, custom color selection allows the rider to individually pick the color of the lower cup, upper cup, top cover and top cap on EC and ZS models, and top cover and top cap on IS options.
Industry Nine is releasing our all-new iRiX headset on March 1st with the first in-person public showing at the Sedona Fat Tire Festival on March 3rd – 6th.
