Reece Wallace and Industry Nine have teamed up to bring you this rad, timely edit from Whistler. Enjoy the buzz of the new Grade 300 wheels and check out the specs below…
Improved strength and dent resistance – Tapered bead wall and down wall construction puts additional material in the impact zone and buttresses the bead wall to resist deformation under impacts
Significantly improved strength to weight ratio – FEA optimized profile offers a much higher yield threshold at essentially the same weight as the original Grade.
Optimized Inner Rim Width – Slightly wider inner width for improved sidewall support under hard cornering – However, 30 mm IW retains compatibility with most common DH tires on the market
Wider bead seat for improved tubeless performance and resistance to burping air
Narrower bead channel for easier tubeless inflation
Despite the rim width increase, the weight of the wheelset remains almost unchanged. The 27.5″ wheel set weighs 1,880 grams while the 29″ version stops the weighing needle exactly to 2,000 grams.
Grade300 wheelsets come built with Grade spokes, which are thicker than our normal trail spokes for added stiffness and durability. All wheelsets are available in any or our 11 anodized colors and in any pattern you can think of using our AnoLab page.
