ENVE M70 THIRTY HV
Enduro, Park & Big Mountain riding is what’s on the menu when it comes to these ENVE M70 THIRTY HV rims in 27.5 and 29″. These build up a wheelset for the rider who considers climbing to be nothing more than a means to an aggressive, gravity-fuelled end. If you rarely have access to trails with a chairlift or shuttle and you love to destroy a descent these rims were designed with you in mind, comfortably light enough to ascend whilst being sturdy enough to throw down a world cup level downhill trail.
Strada Says: This is where ENVE truly sets itself apart from the pack, no-one can build an aggressive trail friendly carbon rim like them. We love to build the ENVE M70 Thirty HV up with the Strada favourite; DT Swiss’ 240 hubs but a flash of Chris King doesn’t look half bad when laced into them either.
WHY HV? In short, the higher the volume tyre you run, the larger your surface area is for grip and the more you can play around with lower tyre pressures. This means that when it comes to staying rubber side down through technical rock & root sections, off-camber corners and loose gravel, HV will always perform better than standard volume. That being said, if you’re rarely pushing the limits of your grip and prefer a less aggressive riding style then standard volume would be the better choice due to a larger volume tyre generating increased rolling resistance over the standard volume option.

RIDE TUNED: Each model in the ENVE M SERIES 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 M SERIES 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 M SERIES 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 optimised to perform within a range of specific tyre widths that are most prevalent for the intended application. By refining the interface between rim and tyre we create more precise and predictable handling characteristics and thus a more efficient wheel system.
IMPACT RESISTANT CONSTRUCTION: A no compromise requirement of the M SERIES 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 M SERIES features a proprietary rim shape and construction that mechanically improves durability and impact resistance across the board.
