The G23 is the definition of a true gravel wheelset. At 330 grams, ENVE’s lightest 700c tubeless rim accelerates quickly and ascends with ease. Armed against pinch flats with the patent pending Wide Hookless Bead, the G23 is tough and relentless on road, path or trail. The G23 is a 700c tubeless carbon clincher wheelset, with a generous 23mm internal width, specifically conceived to meet the performance and ride quality demands of serious mixed surface cyclists.

Created for those seeking to discover new experiences, new terrain, and new challenges. Built to reflect the versatility of today’s gravel and mixed surface riders, these wheels will excite ambitious, daring and indomitable riders everywhere. If your path leads to classics like Dirty Kanza, Landrun, Crusher in the Tushar, or a new wave of events like Grinduro, or Lost and Found, the G23 is your wheel.

There is a place between road and mountain open to discovery. Beyond the range of your trail bike or the capabilities of your road bike. Terrain littered with contradicting challenges and demanding requirements are at odds with the bikes and products available today. We built the new G23 to thrive in this new environment because insight gained through building the world’s best road and mountain bike rims told us that the perfect combination did not exist in our stable, or in our opinion, anywhere at all. The higher volume and lower pressures would demand MTB toughness and flat resistance, while big days and long miles would require the lightweight and efficiency of a road machine. Above all, the combination of rough and rigid would require a wheel with the ride quality to make those long miles enjoyable and multi-day treks possible.

We want people to have as much fun riding gravel as we do, and for that reason, we’ve targeted rim geometries that favor the tire treads and volumes that have proven to be the most fun. With an inner rim width of 23mm the G23, is designed to be paired with gravel treads between 35mm and 45mm. While 35mm-45mm tires provide ample control and traction, for most gravel riding endeavors, they do not offer much by way of pinch-flat protection. Despite ‘minimum PSI’ markings to the contrary, many riders are experimenting with pressure setting in the 20s. The forward-looking G23 is ahead of the trend using our Wide Hookless Bead anti-flat technology, which provides a larger, more forgiving surface during bottom outs, protecting the tire from the dreaded pinch-flat. This technology means you can ride the tire pressures you want, confidently, without limitations. The G Series are intended for tubeless applications and features a molded bead-lock to ensure that your tires will remain secure and sealed to the rim over even the roughest terrain.

SES G Series wheelsets feature a straight sidewall/hookless bead design to ensure best in class tubeless tire performance and are qualified for use with “Tubeless, Tubeless Ready (TLR)” tires, with a labeled width of 28c or greater ONLY. One may safely run inner-tubes as long as the tire itself is of a tubeless or tubeless ready construction.

Please note that the internal rim width of the G23 is 23mm and intended for use with tubeless ready tires between 32-45mm with 40mm tires being the primary focus of the design. The G27 features a 27mm internal width that is intended for pairing with tires between 42-60mm with 55mm/2.0” tires being the target tire width for this rim.

Due to the straight sidewall/hookless design of this rim and inherent high volume design, it is important to understand that not all tires are created equal and for that reason one should pay special attention to the pressure ratings of both the tire and the rim.

G23 – MAX PRESSURE FOR A 32MM TIRE = 60psi/4.1bar

G27 – MAX PRESSURE FOR A 42MM TIRE = 40psi/2.75bar

IN THE CASE THAT TIRE AND RIM MAX PRESSURES ARE DIFFERENT. THE LOWER OF THE TWO PRESSURES BECOMES THE DEFAULT MAX PRESSURE FOR THE SYSTEM.

THE MAX PRESSURE RATING FOR EACH RIM WILL DECREASE AS YOUR TIRE VOLUME/SIZE INCREASES. REFER TO RECOMMENDED TIRE PRESSURE CHART.

ENVE Tip: Trust our tire pressure recommendation chart. The maximum tire pressure ratings on tires are not recommended operating pressures. Running the max pressure will not make you faster, rather, it will actually increase rolling resistance (making you slower) and discomfort (making you slower), jeopardizing the ride experience.

    Bombproof

    How many hours/week do you ride? 6-15

    What is your age bracket? 46-55

    I have ridden these on both the CX bike and the gravel bike, for the past six months. I have ridden them on some of the roughest terrain I’ve ever ridden, and they are simply bombproof. Having super light wheels which ride really well, while never having to think twice about their durability…they are just amazing.

    Great Gravel Wheelset

    I judge wheelsets on four levels. First, are they tubeless and easy to set up. Two, do I get pinch flats, three can they take a beating and four comfort and weight. I’ve had lots of other wheelsets, but the G23 and G27 wheelsets are by far my best. Over 18 gravel races/rides in 2019 using the G23s, including The Rift, DK200, Landrun100 (now MidSouth), Unpaved PA, Overland, Barry Roubaix, to name but a few, using the Maxxis Rambler on my Open Upper, I didn’t have a single flat tire, and they never failed even though I put them through hell on MTB like downhills at full tilt. At 1300+ grams, they are the lightest wheelset for that type of pubishment and very easy, with the middle groove to set up. I liked them so much that I got a set built with Berd spokes, and they are amazing! Loving life, loving my wheels.

    The ideal gravel (and beyond) wheelset

    I’ve been rocking these wheels for months on multiple bikes and multiple surfaces, and they are unbeatable. They are nice and wide to suit various gravel tire sizes, and smoking fast! The claims of being the true gravel wheelset are spot on, but I’ve found they also excel on any other surface. Need tubeless cyclocross wheels? Check. Need some fast wheels that will see the road? Check. Just excellent all around and crazy light.

    Super light; super strong; super sexy. I’ve ridden these wheels hard both on- and off-road and have never found an environment in which they don’t excel.

    This wheelset is second to none. It feels as stiff as the description says while still being light as a feather. I’ve put this wheelset through hell – both rocky terrain and climbing 10k+ climbs. I wouldn’t choose another wheelset if I had to do it over.
