M630 27.5in Wheelset
While some of us may be equipped with a full-blown quiver of steeds in our garage, its bit more common to opt for one fully versatile bike, and we see no better way to treat yourself, and your ride, than by upgrading it with hoops that match its do-it-all demeanor. ENVE's M-series wheels meet the marks for versatility and have been revamped to supercharge your bike with lightweight stiffness, and durability. The M630 27.5in Wheelset uses ENVE's mastery of carbon fiber construction for unwavering performance on the trail. This wheelset is poised for all day rides that carry you beyond the last cell tower, weaving up steep switchbacks to urn untamed miles of descents, laced with drops, tight trees, and root lattices. The internal width sits at 30mm and is ideal for 27.5-inch tires ranging from 2.3 through 2.5-inches. The most exciting feature on the rims is a wider hookless bead that gives a better buffer against the trail, thus improving durability and reducing the likelihood of a pinch flat so you can run lower pressure for better traction and rolling resistance.
Trail tires have certainly gotten wider and rims have grown too in an effort to add better sidewall support. For trail use, our personal experience has been very favorable with 30mm internal widths, so we are glad to see that on the M630. What is remarkable is ENVE managed to shed some 40 grams of rim weight versus the M60HV while increasing the internal width from 26 to 30mm. We aren't exactly sure how ENVE managed to achieve this but the ride is simply amazing. The redesigned, wider hookless bead provides more material on a vulnerable portion of the rim and the edge isn't as sharp as the outgoing M-Series line so tire pinch flats are virtually eliminated. The increased traction and ride comfort from running higher volume tires is something that we doubt we could ever stray from, and the M630 lets us wring out every drop of performance from these wider tires. New lines are opened up and cornering and braking have never been so responsive.
All of ENVE rims, including this M630, feature its patented manufacturing techniques building wheels that are light, durable, and renowned for being extremely stiff. The spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve holes are all molded from carbon fiber rather than drilling after cure which cuts into the fibers. This maintains continuous integrity and results in increased rigidity and lower rim weight.
This method of construction allows for higher and more uniform spoke tension building a more durable and better-preforming wheel that reduces the risk of nipples pulling through the rim. ENVE also utilizes a process that removes the bladder, post-molding, resulting in additional weight savings compared to other wheel manufacturers who leave the rim-shaping, inflatable bladder in the rim after curing. This process takes more time and skill but it results in a lighter rim that is better balanced.
ENVE is extremely proud of developing, prototyping, and manufacturing each and every rim under one roof in its Ogden, UT facility. It doesn't leave any part of the construction to chance, including hand building them in-house to exacting standards that in the end results in the finest wheelset you can put on your bike. These wheels are durable enough to charge down any line on the mountain and light enough that climbing back up to do it again isn't a chore. The simple and effective DT Swiss hubs utilize a star ratchet freehub mechanism that is easy to maintain and bearings are both super reliable and smooth rolling. This wheelset is for 27.5-inch bikes and is available in both centerlock and 6-bolt rotor mounting versions as well as HG freehubs and XD drivers. Mount up your favorite treads and own the trails.
