The definitive mountain wheel. The M6 Series defines the modern, and varied interpretation of the mountain bike. Loaded with traction and acceleration on the climb it’s also backed with precision and control while absorbing vibrations and impacts on the descent. The M6 Series is designed in 2 diameters and 3 widths to ensure your sophisticated preference for tire size and pressure is met with an uncompromising tire to rim interface.
The mountain biker who wonders what is possible, the skeptic afraid of ‘plastic’ wheels, the weight weenie, the Clydesdale, the high mileage guy, the weekend warrior. It would be easier to describe who it is not for…
ENVE showed the world that a mountain bike wheel could be carbon – we’re still immensely proud of that achievement. A mountain bike wheel, however, can be so much more. The M6 Series is not about technical challenges, and we refuse to chase specifications in order to be the widest, tallest, or stiffest. For the M6 Series of wheels, the question was not about carbon, rather, “What is the potential of a mountain bike wheel?”
Each M6 Series wheel model is designed for the broad range of tire widths, hub configurations, and sizes so that – you – the modern trail rider, can choose between them.

ENVE’s patented Molded Spoke Hole Technology offers a variety of benefits that ultimately result in a more durable and reliable carbon fiber rim and wheel. Visit Why ENVE for more details.
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 flow, and an utter buzzkill with a flat tire, regulated to the side of the trail.
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 of the hookless bead. This broad surface creates a more forgiving platform 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.
ENVE Wide Hookless Bead (Patent Pending) delivers:
• 60% 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
Each rim and wheel model in the ENVE M Series is specifically designed for a refined application specific ride experience.
Paying tribute to 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.
