Each offering in Enve’s M series rims is specifically application tuned to maximize the ride experience for the full range of mountain disciplines. This tuning is done through careful selection of carbon laminate and hole count choice for each different rim in the series, which, like the original M series, aligns riders with the appropriate rim based on descent to climb ratios.
The M7 series lands in the Enduro/All-Mountain category, with the M730 designed around 2.3”-2.5” tires and 130mm-180mm suspension travel. Enve found that 32 spokes was the optimal count, needed to survive repeated technical descents at high speed. All M7 series rims share a 100% unidirectional carbon pedigree, however each has a specific laminate to ensure the desired impact resistance, stiffness, and compliance for the given application.
The M730 features Enve’s protective rim strip technology, a rim strip made from specially formulated material that acts as an extremely durable bumper between the carbon fiber of the rim and nasty trail obstacles. This technology results in near-elimination of “pinch” or “snakebite” style flats. Not only does this technology help prevent flats, but in doing so, also minimizes the chance of rim damage. Along with these benefits, the system allows riders to run lower tire pressures (improving traction and rolling resistance), the option to rider lighter weight tires, improved tubeless performance, elimination of the need for tubeless tape, and an independent tubeless seal that can allow air pressure integrity even when the rim is damaged.
Enve’s M730 is available in both 27.5”/650B (530 grams) and 29” (571 grams) versions, with a 32 hole count for either. The rims are backed by a “5 year no hassle warranty” from ENVE, who, at no charge, will replace rims damaged riding or racing.
