Industry Nine PillarCarbon BackCountry 360 Wheels - New Release

Back at Eurobike 2017, Industry Nine released the BackCountry 360 wheelset aimed at the emerging plus tire size market. The BackCountry 360 aluminum rim took off with great success and it didn't take long for Industry Nine to work out a carbon model part of their PillarCarbon series of rims partnered with Reynolds. 

The PillarCarbon BackCountry 360 are Industry Nine's premier wheelset for modern, wide-cased mountain bike tires. Built on the Torch 32 hole chassis, PillarCarbon BC360’s 36mm internal width provides optimal sidewall support for the newest breed of performance rubber. PillarCarbon BC360 raises the performance bar, highlighting the advantages of added traction while shaving weight with carbon execution.

Tire Profile

So why use a wider rim for plus sized tires? "Plus size" tires tend to range from 2.6" to 3.0" in width. Most plus sized tires are designed around a wider rim to give the tire the correct profile, air volume, and riding characteristics. Industry Nine recommends the  BackCountry 360 be paired with a tire anywhere from 2.4" wide to 3.0" wide. This will give the tire the correct shape allowing the cornering knobs to bite in to the turn like they are supposed to. 

Industry Nine Ano Lab

All of Industry Nine Torch series wheels can be configured with any assortment of 11 different anodized colors. The hubs and spokes can each be anodized and arranged in so many different configurations to suit your style and match your bike perfectly.
