Industry Nine has just updated their coverage to add a limited lifetime warranty to all of their carbon wheelsets. Whether road or mountain bike, if you’ve purchased them from an authorized dealer or directly from I9, they’ve got you covered. As long as you’re using them within the scope of their designated use, that is. Their disclaimer: “If you hit a tree at 30mph or come up short on a double while riding your road bike at the bike park and break a wheel – we have a great crash replacement program.”
That means their all-new disc brake carbon road wheels and any carbon mountain bike set will now give you a little more peace of mind when it’s time to plunk down the coin. Combine a line up of carbon rims that are almost all proprietary designs with their bullet proof hubs and we don’t suspect they’ll see a lot of claims. But, it’s still nice to have that protection as a backup. The new lifetime limited warranty backdates to cover all new wheels purchased on or after January 1, 2018.
