ENVE wheelset 29 "M525 | Industry Nine Hydra Center Lock hubs | Boost
ENVE products have seen a rapid rise in the world of cycling. They have even been tested on the big tours like the Tour de France or the Vuelta in Spain. The carbon specialists from the USA develop only the uncompromisingly best attachments for professionals and other committed cyclists.
The M525 is the ultimate wheelset for racers and other bikers who like to go for speed. It offers enough space even for wider tires, is pleasantly restrained on the scales, can be precisely controlled and still offers sufficient comfort. Together with the Industry Nine hubs and the Sapim spokes you will have a lot of fun with it.
ENVE M525 rims
The ENVE M525 is a thoroughbred XC rim without restrictions. It is light enough for racing and robust enough for everyday use. With its optimized profile shape, fiber layout and spoke holes, it offers the driver more vertical flexibility and at the same time prevents any material fatigue. In addition, the new M525 relies on the patent-pending wide hookless rim horns, which significantly increase the puncture protection so that it can be driven with the modern, light XC tires with significantly less risk of punctures and other damage.
ENVE carbon rims are developed by ENVE in the USA and manufactured in compliance with the highest quality requirements at the company's headquarters in Utah. The engineers at ENVE have years of experience with the use of carbon in the field of cycling and know what requirements a top product like these carbon rims must meet. At ENVE everything is done to use the advantages of carbon and to eliminate its disadvantages. So stiff and extremely light rims were developed in which all fibers can run without interruption, which corresponds to the best possible use of the material thickness. This principle has been perfected with the spoke holes, in that continuous fiber strands form the mount for the spoke nipples. Aluminum inserts, as are common with other carbon rims, can therefore be dispensed with during production. This reduces the weight and at the same time allows significantly higher spoke tensions which in turn allow the construction of stiffer wheels!
Industry Nine Hydra Classic Center Lock hubs
The Industry Nine Hydra Classic hubs are a real gem on every bike. Developed and produced in Asheville / North Carolina, they set themselves apart from the competition with many small technical refinements. With their externally sealed 4-way bearing on the rear wheel and a stable axle , they are optimally protected against environmental influences and also ideally suited for downhill use. Beveled spoke flanges help to reduce the forces on the sensitive spoke heads and thus prevent spoke breaks. However, the pawl freewheel on the rear hub is revolutionary. It consists of a drive ring with 115 teeth and 6 staggered locking blades. These are designed so that as soon as one of them has a frictional connection, the others can also absorb torque shortly thereafter. This means that a single handle can only carry the power for a very short time. The big plus of this system is an extremely short free travel of 0.52 °, which brings clear advantages in technical passages or when accelerating hard. In addition, the fine grid leads to a unique background noise on the impeller.
The maintenance effort is also relatively low. You can disassemble and clean the hub without tools.
Sapim CX-Ray spokes
Sapim CX-Ray spokes are so-called knife spokes. The middle part is butted to a diameter of 1.5 mm during production and forged flat in the last work step. These processes solidify the structure and produce extremely durable spokes.
