Sector DH9i - 29” MTB Rim

The Downhill Rim with a Suit of Armour.


The Downhill Rim with a Suit of Armour.

The DHi mountain bike rim is our our strongest rim. Based on the same Innegra construction as our 9i trail and enduro rims, we’ve created a downhill rim that is even stronger to cope with the toughest downhill courses. The combination of strength and low weight also makes the DHi rim ideal for hard hitting enduro applications.

The DHi rim is waiting to be built into a world class wheelset, ready to shrug off hits on the most technical trails around. Thanks to the addition of Innegra, the DHi rim is incredibly strong, compliant and lightweight.

The DHi rim is available in both 29” and 27.5”.

Redefining Carbon Wheels.

By using TeXtreme® Innegra in the layup of our rims, we've developed a range of rims that have 75% higher impact resistance than standard carbon rims of the same profile*. The DHi rims are significantly more resistant to wear and tear and less prone to catastrophic failure. In rim only impact tests, these rims are able to withstand impacts up to a whopping 180 Joules!

Our Innegra™ equipped rims also have 50% more vertical compliance than standard carbon rims**. As a result they exhibit high energy absorption and superior vibration damping, with none of harsh stiffness associated with carbon. These are carbon rims that have the sought-after ride characteristic of a premium alloy wheelset.

*When compared with same rim shape manufactured with 100% T700 Unidirectional carbon fibre.

**In rim only vertical deflection tests compared to the same rim shape manufactured with 100% T700 Unidirectional carbon fibre, the DHi rim deflected 50% more, without failure.

Please Note:

These Rims are front and rear specific. Due to different spoke bracing angles of front and rear wheels, the drilling angle differs between front and rear rims. If buying a set please order one Front and one Rear Rim.
