Built to Ride

Industry Nine hubs are machined, anodized and assembled entirely in their Asheville, NC manufacturing facility. You can fully service the hubs with standard bearing tools, no proprietary tools required.

With 690 points of engagement, increased durability and bearing life, decreased rolling resistance and weight, the Hydra is I9’s premium hub. The Hydra features a 115 tooth drive-ring and a six phase engagement system, that achieves 2nd, 3rd and 4th pawl contact to distribute the load. Learn more about the Hydra by visiting our blog.

Grease or Oil Your Industry Nine Hubs

Grease Vs Oil

Dumonde produces a line of resilient and effective oils and greases, as a result, Industry Nine suggests Dumonde as a lubricant for their hubs. The Hydra hub has the option of using either Dumonde’s thicker grease or their lower viscosity oil.  Each one affects how the hub behaves and the level of maintenance required.​ Check out our blog post to learn more.
