The Mountain Biker's Wheelset.
If you made us pick a wheelset for our next trail build or for our current steed, at the top of a very short list would be the ENVE's M635 27.5in Boost Wheelset. It simply distills everything we want in a modern trail wheelset into a potent and competent package. Ideal for days that see elevation numbers climb towards 5 digits, as well as a confidence inspiring ride that will have you charging those hard earned lines on the way down, this wheelset does it all. This latest version, sees a massive increase of internal width all the way up to 35mm and it will help you get the most out of the latest crop of new rubber in the 2.5 to 2.8-inch range. Boost spacing, front and rear, ensure that the bike has adequate stiffness between the dropouts and that it accurately tracks through any high-speed corner and steamrolls the gnarliest rock gardens on the mountain. The increased tire volume and stiffness granted by the increased width make the M635 the definitive wheelset for all-mountain outings.
The M635 caters to the ever growing segment of riders who prize the increase traction and comfort that comes with riding larger volume tires, without resorting to the heavy and often vague feeling ride that comes from plus tires and wheels. The M635 amazingly comes in at a lower weight than the HV model and is a perfect complement to your 120 to 170mm trail and all-mountain ride. The redesigned, larger hookless bead is both substantially more impact resistant than the outgoing HV and is designed to mitigate pinch flatting tires. Of course, the extra width internally is perhaps the biggest star of the show and we have really come to appreciate the higher tire volume it allows. With it comes an increase in cornering stability and more tread on the trail so you can attack sections with a new found furor.
All ENVE wheels, including the M635, feature ENVE's patented manufacturing techniques that allow the wheels to be light, durable, and impressively stiff. The molded spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve holes are key ingredients responsible for ENVE's reputation of creating wheels that are the lightest weight and stiffest in the industry. ENVE molds the carbon fiber around each hole, rather than drilling which cuts into the fibers, to maintain continuous integrity resulting in increased rigidity and a lower weight at the spoke face.
This advanced method of construction facilitates higher and more uniform spoke tension reducing the risk of nipples pulling through. Additionally, ENVE uses a process that removes the inner bladder after the molding process, resulting in gram savings compared to other wheel manufacturers who leave the rim-shaping, inflatable bladder in the rim after cure. This process takes time and skill but it results in a lighter rim and is better balanced.
ENVE is proud of developing, prototyping, and manufacturing each and every rim under one roof and it of course, doesn't leave any part of the construction to chance including hand building them in Utah to exacting standards for the longevity you’d expect out of a class-leading wheel manufacture. Boost hubs are coming on more and more bikes since they offer better tracking and stiffen things up from stem to stern. These wheels laugh in the face of black diamond trails and promise the holy trinity of lightweight, stiffness, and durability. The simple and very effective DT Swiss star ratchet freehub is simple to maintain and bearings remain very smooth. This wheelset is for 27.5-inch bikes and is available in centerlock and 6-bolt rotor mount versions as well as HG freehubs and XD drivers.
