This tubular rim offering from Enve Composites is an extremely lightweight yet durable option for cross country 29ers. For riders looking to gain every last advantage in XC racing, or desperately seeking to shed that last bit of excess weight off their already insanely light mountain rigs, this rim will provide an excellent foundation for a lightweight, yet nimble wheelset.
At Fair Wheel Bikes, we'll be the first to admit that mountain tubulars aren't for everyone. The expense and hassle of obtaining and gluing tires would have most riders aching to just get out and ride. However, the benefits of running a tubular tire in the dirt are definitely worth considering. Beyond the most obvious weight advantage (this rim is over 100 grams lighter than Enve's clincher version), there are performance benefits as well. Compared to clinchers, lower tire pressures can be used to increase traction and cornering performance while eliminating the possibility of pinch flats.
