The handbuilt DT 350 / Enve 65 classic wheelset is easilly one of the most versatile and durable wheelsets that we offer. The Enve 65 Classic is among some of the rims that put Enve on the map, and this is no fluke. By addressing all of the issues that come with carbon rims, including aerodynamics, weight, stiffness, and braking performance, Enve was able to create the 65 Classic. Using a proprietary bladderless molding process, each rim is created with the spoke and valve holes as part of the mold, making the rim substantially stronger by avoiding drilling of any kind. By machining the braking surface on each rim, Enve is able to produce a more reliable platform for rim brakes, an issue with lesser carbon rims. The aerodynamic shape of the 65 Classic obviously lends itself to time trial applications, however many hill climbers and cyclocross riders swear by the same rim.
Utilizing the house favorite, and highly respected, Sapim CX-Ray spokes to lace each 65 Classic wheelset. Industry wide use of the CX-Ray spoke is a good testament to Sapim’s reputation. When companies like Enve, Zipp, and Tune all regularly use CX-Rays in their builds you know they’re a safe bet.
Tying the whole build together nicely is the mechanic’s favorite, the DT 350 by DT Swiss. Quickly making a name for themselves with a reputation of extreme durability and simple serviceability, the DT 350 is a fantastic option for those looking for a bomb proof hub for their next wheelset. Utilizing the same internal design as the venerable DT 240, the DT 350 is sure to last many seasons of abuse with little needed service.
