Enve made this rim specifically for the cross country racer who requires a no compromise RACE wheel that won't let you down when you reach the top of the race course.
Based on feedback from Sho-Air and Cannondale Factory Racing Teams, our M50 features a ride quality defined by vertical compliance that improves efficiency over rough terrain and prevents fatigue caused by hard hours in an unsuspended saddle. The M50 won't make the effort hurt less, but we promise your effort will be rewarded more than ever before.
Each model in the ENVE MSERIES is designed with a specific rider profile in mind. In the past we had classified riders into three general categories in a one size fits all XC, AM, and DH designation that worked well for some but left others wondering where they fit. The ENVE MSERIES features four completely new models that classify riders by the ride style that they most closely identify with. Each rim model is designated by a style ratio that represents a rider's inclination towards descending vs. ascending. M50fifty (50 % Descend/ 50% Climb) M60forty (60 % Descend/ 40% Climb) M70thirty (70 % Descend/ 30% Climb) M90ten (90 % Descend/ 10% Climb) Tuning each rim to a specific application meant creating a rim that is fittingly light, stiff, and durable for its intended application. As such, each rim in our next generation MSERIES is lighter and stiffer than its comparable first generation predecessor. Developing laminates that cater to a specific ride application is only part of the story. Each rim is optimized to perform within a range of specific tire widths that are most prevalent for the intended application. By refining the interface between rim and tire we create more precise and predictable handling characteristics and thus a more efficient wheel system.
IMPACT RESISTANT CONSTRUCTION
A no compromise requirement of the MSERIES mountain rims was increased impact toughness. With a reputation built on durability we have worked tirelessly to up the ante in terms of rim durability and are proud to say that we have taken rim strength to the next level. The MSERIES features a proprietary rim shape and construction that mechanically improves durability and impact resistance across the board.
