Industry Nine Introduces State Of The Art, Cutting Edge, Ground-Breaking Wheel Testing Campus with Optimized, Best In Class, Vertically Stiff, Laterally Compliant, Cloud-Based Data-Acquisition Metric Analytics that Leverages Social Media Platforms for Speed and Slop.  

(Asheville, NC) – Industry Nine, an innovative company in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, unveils its new industry leading wheel testing facility and lab. As the Bicycle Industry moves towards increased quantified testing to advance and refine the sport, Industry Nine has taken the lead to push development to the brink of sanity and cleanliness. With the introduction of this new facility, Industry Nine plans to prove that “Mud is Everything.”

The “Mud Tunnel”

After months of consulting with the World’s leading bugs, insects and root systems, Industry Nine Componentry has developed the planet’s first and only equipment suite specifically engineered to mimic real world riding conditions in the most demanding environments – The “Mud Tunnel.” Beyond performance simulations and data collection capabilities, the “Mud Tunnel” can also flush spent test conditions and regenerate new, entirely different test parameters.

Industry Nine commenced perfectly controlled wheel tests in secret as early as January 2015, and the project has been a huge draw on resources. “All the sacrifice, long hours and hardship our staff, customers and riders have endured while we’ve ‘Ripped Mud’ and introduced the Mud Tunnel will surely be wiped from memory as riders know they’re using the best possible product to shred brown,” said an I9 employee requesting anonymity due to the clandestine nature of the operation.

Many different types of mud, loam and dirt from all over the world have been imported to observe and measure each material’s properties, characteristics, symptoms, sounds, tastes tones, astral and spectral auras. Working with their vast network of international and domestic dealers Industry Nine has been importing dirt, sand and clay for the past year to get the largest sample size possible. Employing such an enormous range of the “brown stuff” has given Industry Nine superior insight on dirt, sand and clay allowing them to push the possibilities to the utmost maddening limits of the brink-riding crest of existence.

They should also import the water from the various regions to make sure that their research is most accurate and they need to also have to drink the local brew form said region as part of the white paper.

This is stupid! Everyone knows the most critical moment of your trail ride is when you come to the cow pasture and suddenly hit a giant cow patty. The tires lose traction, semi digested vegatation flies everywhere, it’s a real danger point. They need to add that to their silly testing. And snakes! They should do the “Take your feet off the pedals and ride through snakes test”
