Has anyone gotten their hand's on or used the new AR25's from Industry nine? I'm back and fourth on getting a pair vs their ultralight 29's or even trails.
Would by my set for stuff like DK and such.

Thanks!

Those look really cool, and very light.  Never seen in person, but something to think about - custom wheels could be done for less, like as much as $450, with I9 or DT 240 hubs.

Yeah really light weight. As in I don't fully understand how this weighs less than a lot of carbon fiber wheelsets. Comparatively I'm looking at a a Nox Composites Citico Disc w/I9 hubs weight, or a Reynold ATR

With the new Hydra rims, we will be able to hit 1500g with a 24/28h build with conventional J bend spokes.  The carbon rims I am seeing are lighter but not substantially than similar alum rims.  An exception is the LB RM29C06 technically an XC rim but works really well with gravel tires 32 and up.  I would be able to go sub 1400g with that rim.

I just ordered the AR25's for a gravel bike I'm building out.  I'm planning to use them in Dirty Kanza.
