The 942 rim by Ibis is a light and dependable hoop, built upon the foundations of their popular 941 rim. Like its predecessor, the 942 has a wide body making it perfect for plus sized tires, and ideal for ultra-low pressures. The rims also feature a lower cross section height, which provides improved impact resistance. Ibis also made changes to the carbon layup, incorporating new layers of carbon/ epoxy pre-preg into their original composite. The 942's asymmetric design allows for higher spoke tension, providing increased stiffness and power transfer. By combining these improvements, Ibis made the 942 30% and 7.5% lighter than the previous generation.
Industry Nine's Torche hubs make a perfect centrepiece for these wheels. The front hub has dual bearings that each have external o-ring seals and precision spoke drilling. The rear utilizes four bearings, external Teflon seals, and a silicone freehub seal. Driven by 120 points of engagement and a dual 3 pawl system, they deliver three degrees of excellent engagement.
