Trail245 – The Evolution of the Original.

Industry Nine is pleased to announce the Trail245. The Trail rim has been our best-selling model in the Torch lineup, so we knew we needed to set the bar high with its evolution. Trail245 delivers – boasting a wider 24.5mm internal width, 1mm wider bead seat per side, and .5mm shorter bead wall from the original Trail for improved tire performance and increased “burp” resistance at low pressures. We have also improved impact resistance with a thicker bead wall and tapered downwall construction that puts more material in the “impact” zone where it’s needed most. Trail245 features an attractive graphic package that’ll meld with any build, and is available with black rims. Trail 245 comes in 27.5” and 29″ versions using our 32 hole or 24 hole Torch Mountain System Chassis. Weights: 27.5” 24h – 1480g, 32h – 1570g. 29” 24h – 1580g, 32h – 1670g.
