GX24 650b Disc, Industry Nine Torch Center Lock XD drive, 650b
GX24 (Gravel X whatever the heck else you might want to use them for, they're awesome) 650b carbon rims are 24mm wide internal, 30mm wide external, 24mm deep, have a 2.5mm offset, and weigh 380g/rim. Tubeless ready, of course, they are ideal for 650b gravel tires from 45 to 50mm wide, and mountain bike tires from 2.25 to 2.5" wide. Hookless for ultimate impact resistance, we strongly recommend using tubeless ready tires at a maximum of 50psi for 45mm tires (and less for bigger tires, but these pressures are all much higher than you'll want to run anyhow). Tubeless + hookless + weigh less + cost way less = way more.
Industry Nine Torch Road/CX disc hubs are amazing. Built by hippies in Asheville, NC, they have lightning fast engagement, are incredibly durable and maintenance free, and have supermodel good looks. Available in all the popular axle formats, switching between formats is straightforward with an (optional) end cap swap. Turquoise, lime, orange, green, and purple are also available. XD driver also available (this order page is for SRAM/Shimano drive).
Laced with black Sapim CX Rays and black brass nipples (other options available as custom orders), 2x crossing throughout for 24 and 28, 3x for 32. Includes tubeless ready rim tape (the best for tubes, too).
1400g in 28/28, 1440g in 32/32
