Osama is a Brit living in Dubai and recently ordered a new pair of wheels for his bike. We built a pair of ENVE Smart 6.7 carbon clinchers with DT Swiss 180 hubs and Sapim CX Ray spokes. We opted for 2 white CX Rays per wheel to tie with the minimal decals on the Cervelo. Overall we are really pleased with the way it looks. Osama sent and photo and a quick review below –
The wheelset is just absolutely gorgeous and look amazing on my Cervélo RCa… great suggestion to have the white spray! Most importantly, they ride terrifically. Build quality is first class, super stiff and fast. I love the whir and the DT180s are awesome and have such a gentle sound…
I took them out for a 50k spin across a desert cycle path in Dubai at sunset. Aside from a scary confrontation with an Oryx, the ride was exceptional despite the painfully strong wind. I have to thank you for convincing me to go for the 6.7s instead of 3.4s.
Attached is an iPhone pic with them fitted on my new Cervelo RCa. I’ll send something a little more artistic once my dura-ace pedals arrive (massive shortage in Dubai!).
Thanks a million to you and all the team!
