Sector Wheels Announce Lightweight 9i Carbon Wheelset with a Suit of Armour
Thanks for the input! We tried to put the advantages of a.) The Innegra fibre and b.) The spread tow orientation of those fibres into easy to read terms, and hopefully avoid making unjustified marketing claims. We didn't invent Innegra, and a quick bit of research should back up the claims!

Other manufacturers might claim that, but in reality lots of carbon wheels are horribly stiff. With these wheels you can get the weight saving of carbon wheels, with a much greater impact resistance, and more compliance. And we back up these claims with testing and data! You pay for these qualities, but we like to think the price is justified and we place value high on our priorities!

For the time being, there is an aftermarket free hub from Reynolds that fits but we are working hard on a Microspline freehub license of our own.

Come on @cristian-peper21 - considering your involvement with trust you should know better than to burn brands online!

Thanks guys. We want to lead a change in the industry and be very open with our impact and compliance data. If other manufacturers did this you would understand why so many crack! We know this product is awesome, we wouldn't bother if it wasn't, as frankly the world doesn't need another 'me too' carbon wheel brand. If the worst thing people can say about us is the name then we are happy with that!

Thanks for the comment. We like to provide data rather than pure marketing superlative. What would you consider substantiation of these claims? A graph? A photo from the factory? Video of Danny mac riding down the stairs? We can provide those (maybe not Danny mac) but really the problem is a lack of trust because companies don't usually give you any data. In truth, all mtb rims must meet an impact test measured in Joules (set by ISO) to be sold. The UCI standard of 80J is required by the UCI for products racing in UCI events and is much higher than the ISO. But other than meeting the ISO standard, who knows how strong most carbon rims are. We have provided some data to demonstrate we meet and exceed the recommended UCI impact resistance, by a long way. If other manufacturers provided this data too you would see just how well we stack up. For some comparison we also made the rim in standard T700 carbon fibre to demonstrated just how much difference Innegra makes. Hope that helps!

We put our hands up here, totally should have checked the redirect from the blog! As we mentioned, we are a new product from the same people as kinesis uk and dmr. So the website lives there for the time being. This doesn't affect the quality of the product though!

The hub and spokes are important, and we have carefully selected these. But for the purpose of a press release and the technology we are focussing on, it's all about the Innegra equipped rim. :)

We understand the reservations but we guarantee you can feel this on the trail. We'll aim to get a set to pinkbike for testing. For the time being: https://singletrackworld.com/2019/09/sector-9i-carbon-wheelset-first-ride-review/
