Ride without limitations
The M Series Reinvented
Starts with Ride Quality
Since the original M Series launched in 2014, we’ve been listening to feedback from you and our professional athletes. As such, we’ve crafted the new M Series for a more refined and lively ride that delivers control without harshness. A smooth ride with great lateral stiffness preserves your energy and allows you to ride faster, longer.
Takes a Beating
Each new M Series rim is more impact resistant. Starting with an energy absorbing rim section and culminating with patented impact and anti-flat sidewall construction, these are some seriously tough wheels. Consider now, the majority of broken carbon rims happen after you’ve flatted your tire. Through elimination of pinch flats, we’ve further reduced the likelihood of damaging your rims.
Delivers True Confidence
By employing two unique rim and tire protection technologies you can now ride the lines you want, at speed, with full confidence. Without the fear of flats or damaged rims, you will find focus and flow in demanding situations. Removing tire pressure limitations, you’ll find maximum traction, rolling efficiency, and even more speed.
Rim and Tire Protection Only from ENVE
Specifically designed to unlock the performance of modern light-weight and high-volume tires, the all new M Series continues the evolution of the mountain bike wheel.
Dynamic Impact Design was born to solve the problems associated with traditional hookless carbon rim designs. Traditional hookless rims are strong, stiff, reliably tubeless and light, but require more material for strength, ride harsh, and are very susceptible to pinch flatting tires. Once the tire has flatted, there is nothing but the rubber itself to absorb impact energy from the trail. Unfortunately, a pinch flat is often the precursor to a damaged carbon rim. Dynamic Impact Design by ENVE aims to solve this problem.
- Improvement in pinch flat resistance over other hookless rims
- Ability to run lower tire pressure and improve traction and rolling resistance
- The option to run lighter weight tires if desired
- A more forgiving buffer between rim and trail
- Greater impact resistance
As carbon rims have become hookless and increasingly more durable, we have transitioned from rim failures to tire failures. Wearing a tire tread down to the casing is a thing of the past as most tires are lucky if they survive 50 miles of aggressive riding over obstacle laden terrain. While destroying an expensive tire on a weekly basis isn’t affordable, it’s a complete interruption of how to be relegated to the side of the trail with a flat tire.
ENVE’s Wide Hookless Bead is the result of 2 years of carbon mountain bike rim development to address this above scenario. The result is a rim shape that features a wider leading edge. This broad surface creates a more forgiving platform M525 on which the tire can bottom out, and proves extremely effective in reducing the likelihood of “pinch” or “snake-bite” style flat.
In addition to greatly improving tire performance and reliability, the Wide Hookless Bead design beefs up the leading edge of the rim and allows for greater impact resistance.
- Unprecedented pinch/snake-bite flat resistance
- Ability to run lower pressure and improve traction and rolling resistance
- The option to run lighter weight tires if desired
- A protective buffer between rim and trail
- Improved tubeless performance and durability by eliminating the need to tape rims for a tubeless seal
- Independent tubeless seal that can allow air pressure integrity in the instance the carbon is damaged or cracked
- Weight neutral compared to traditional carbon enduro class rims
Say goodbye to heavy, expensive, challenging to install, ride compromising tire inserts that are designed to help eliminate pinch flats and rim damage but ultimately fail to deliver on the promise. ENVE’s protective rim strip is made using a specially formulated material that acts as an extremely durable bumper between unforgiving obstacles in the trail and durable carbon bumper.
The result is near elimination of “pinch” or “snake-bite” style flat tires. Consequently, most carbon rims are broken and damaged after the tire has lost air pressure and the tire’s air pressure is no longer offering protection to the rim. Our promise is that our patent pending rim strip technology will result in less flat tires, fewer damaged rims and more time riding how you want. That is, with no limitations…
Paying tribute the original M Series the M5, M6, M7, and M9 Series follow the original M Series descent to climb ratios that are used to help you the rider align your ride preferences with the appropriate M Series wheel for you.We tune each M series wheel model to the intended application by tuning everything from hole count to the very carbon laminate used to create the rim’s structure.
Backed by ENVE
Our Lifetime Protection Plan – At ENVE, we believe you should ride our products as hard as our professional athletes do. If you’re the original owner of an M Series wheelset, and damage a rim while riding or racing, we’ll replace that rim at no charge as quick as we possibly can.
Handmade in the USA
US Made is about more than making the best products in the world. Building our products here, in our Ogden, Utah factory, means that every design, process, and wheelbuild is crafted and cared for by passionate cyclists like yourselves. Our obsession with performance required over a 1000 prototype wheels be evaluated in order to bring you the new M Series. We take our position as the best carbon rim manufacturer in the world very seriously and know that you expect only the best from ENVE.
