Description

Classics for the rest of us.

While many riders are still drawn to tubular wheels for racing, the clincher ENVE Classic 65 Carbon Road Wheelset has proven that that doesn’t have to be. Its most versatile rim, the 65, is ideal for everything from triathlon to cyclocross.

What’s most impressive about the 65mm deep rim is that its weight rivals that of top tubular wheelsets, like the Zipp 404 Firecrest. ENVE accomplishes this using its hand-molded, patented process of molding in spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve stem holes. And while this is a time-consuming process, using intact fibers around all of the penetrations means that the strength of the overall wheel is increased exponentially. To further reduce the weight, ENVE also uses a removable bladder when forming the wheel rather than one that stays inside of the final molded structure. This makes for a true, round wheel that can handle high spoke tension.

ENVE hand builds the wheels right here in the USA using DT Swiss 240 hubs laced with 24 DT Swiss Aerolite bladed spokes. It is ideally mated to ENVE’s 45 on the front to give you aerodynamic benefits that rival that of a disc setup, for those races where discs are not legal.

  • DT Swiss 240 hubs
  • DT Swiss Aero bladed spokes
  • Compatible with Shimano/SRAM 9/10/11 or Campagnolo 11-speed

Here's what others have to say...

I noticed that the website suggests I purchase Shimano centerblocks along with the wheel set. Are they necessary to install these wheels on my SuperSix Evo with 11 speed Ultegra?

No, that is only for the disc brake version of these wheels, sorry for the confusion there. Let me know if you would like me to get an order going or have any other questions. gmcbride@backcountry.com

A+ grade wheelset

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I rode a prototype of this wheel several years back and fell in love with them. Subsequently I got another pair that I actually still own and have been using for several years. Comfortable, compliant, quick to wind up, stable, a fantastic wheel all around. I will say that I may personally pick these over the 6.7's by the smallest of margins due to the weight difference. I will admit to being a weight weenie and to get a wheel this aero and stiff at this weight is a real treat. These are definitely in my list of top 5 wheels out there. Super light but deep enough of a dish that you get the aero benefits, and again won't beat you up if the winds kick up. I think my earlier statement attests to the durability which is something you have to consider when spending this kind of money on a wheelset. I have not had to do a thing the the set that I have, highly recommended. If you have specific questions or help with shipping price you can contact me directly here at kylebrown@backcountry.com

What width tire do you use with this rim? I have looked for a 700x22c tire but haven't found any.

HI HIMP658239. You can run a tire wider than the rim width on this clincher rim. For example, a 23 mm (or 25 mm tire) will be fine. If you really want to match the tire width to the rim, some tires run a bit thinning than advertised.
