Sea Otter 2014: ENVE Composites M-Series Rims

Utah’s ENVE Composites, creators of the most lust-worthy components in cycling, have unveiled their new M-Series rims. Identified for the amount of time you spend climbing compared to descending, and available in XC, Trail, All-Mountain, and DH editions, ENVE M-Series rims will be carrying riders to podium spots everywhere you look.

Historically, ENVE rims have been revered for their stiffness and strength, two characteristics that only see improvement in the refined design and construction techniques featured in the M-Series rims. Rim depth and width, both internal and external, have been optimized for each rim’s intended discipline. Following Specialized’s lead, M-Series rims feature a hookless design, bead hooks having been deemed unnecessary in todays age of precision tire construction. Eliminating bead hooks reduces weight and allows for improved tire profiles as well.

ENVE M-Series rims will be available as part of complete wheelsets and by themselves at Art’s Cyclery.
