Since 2008, when ENVE Composites launched their 25mm ultralight tubular, there's been a lot of interest in a clincher version. ENVE continually mentioned that they were working on an option but the engineering challenges of manufacturing a lightweight shallow carbon clincher with the ability to effectively dissipate braking heat were hard to overcome. Now, after five years of research and development the ENVE 25 carbon clincher is here. The sidewall supports the braking surface and is thicker than other carbon clinchers allowing heat to transfer into the rim preventing premature heat buildup.
As with all their rims ENVE implements a propriatary molding process. Part of this includes molded, not drilled, spoke holes. This creates a ball and socket joint for the spoke which tranfers spoke tension more evenly into the rim. This both allows for higher spoke tension and lower fatigue increasing spoke life.
We're happy to provide you with a selection of custom ENVE Decals exlusively through Fairwheel Bikes. The decals can be ordered separately, with a rim or as a free upgrade with a hand built wheel set. Each sticker is ordered individually and a rim requires six to replace the stock logos.
We recommend that wheels built with Enve rims be assembled by an experienced wheel builder. We are happy to provide this service, and can provide helpful suggestions in hub and spoke selections. Please contact us directly or submit a custom wheel build request here.
All ENVE rims come with nipples and brake pads. Clincher rims do come with ENVE rim strips.
