Industry Nine Hydra and 101 MTB Hubs
Hydra: The rules of engagement have changed.
The new phase of Industry Nine is the culmination of innumerable miles on the bike and hours in the shop. An evolution from previous drive systems, the new Hydra drive is a project over two and a half years in the making.
Hydra rewrites the rules with a monstrous leap to 690 points of engagement, or .52 degrees between each engagement. The new Hydra drive system raises the bar on hub technology using an independently-phased six pawl, 115 tooth drivering.
The innovative new design utilizes a continually phased system, creating a procession of engagement points between pawl and drivering. The design utilizes the inherent flex of the axle to accomplish positive second, third, or fourth pawl contact. Hydra also tempers uncontrolled axle and bearing movements conventional designs can't mechanically limit, thus improving bearing life and decreasing resistance. Hydra offers consistent, reliable engagement without overloaded bearings, axles, or hub shells.
Hydra hubs are offered in 11 custom anodized colors on our XCM and NEO wheelsets for $1575.

Confident and capable of cleaning the A-line yet budget friendly to save up for a season of bucket list rides, the 101 hub stays true to the Industry Nine performance heritage. Featuring a dual phased-pawl drive mechanism accomplishing 90 POE and 4 degree engagement by way of a six pawl driver and 45 tooth drivering, 101 takes a no-nonsense approach in welcoming riders to Industry Nine. Pairing them Maple carbon rims makes them unbeatable for the price.
