Quite possibly the best riding aluminum road wheel on the planet!
i25TL Disc – Adding even more versatility to our popular road wheel, we now offer our exceptional i25 road tubeless rim paired to Torch Road system disc hubs laced with 24 Sapim CX Ray straight pull spokes. This has been a hot set-up for CX and gravel racing given the impressive 19mm inner rim width, tubeless compatibility and low weight of 1485g. Go for that “disc-specific” look with the black i25TL rim which foregoes machined rim brake tracks.
The I25 utilizes a 23.2mm wide rim extrusion instead of the traditional 19-19.5mm industry standard. This offers a huge leap in lateral stiffness and strength. Even more important though, is the added sidewall support this rim provides. It allows the use of 10-15 psi lower tire pressures which provides exceptional, tubular-like ride quality and improved cornering grip as well. Add the ability of going Tubeless and you've got the best rim characteristics available. As a bonus the wider rim improves aerodynamics, by allowing a smoother transition for airflow from tire to rim - when coupled with the industry standard 23 and 25c tires.
All Torch series disc road wheels feature our 24 hole 2/1 lacing pattern. This lacing pattern reduces wheel weight and promotes even spoke tensions, while maintaining excellent durability. Wheels feature 16 spokes on the rear drive side rear/disc side front flange, paired with 8 opposing spokes. Due to the dish caused by the cassette and front disc rotor mount, this orientation evens out spoke tension. This reduces peak stress loads on the spokes and rim, as well as the fatigue cycle incurred in a traditional 24 spoke wheel - allowing a lower spoke count and lighter weight, without the durability issues and increased rim weights commonly associated with low spoke count wheels.
Our road wheels use the same drivering and pawls as the new Torch Moutain hubs, rated to withstand 700 ft/lbs of torque! However, we reduced the pawl count to 3 instead of 6, for lower drag and weight, while still achieving and industry leading (for road hubs) 6 degree engagement.
As a final measure, Torch hubs feature custom Teflon contact seals for the endcaps, which we manufacture in house. They fully seal the hubs from mud and water - tight enough for a muddy CX season, but smooth enough for drag-free road miles.
