Pedal up, scream down, repeat.
The ENVE M70 Thirty 27.5in Wheelset is hand-built for riders who love to charge down the mountain and pedal back up for more. Learning from its World Cup DH program, ENVE built a rim that was stronger than its AM rim and capable of taking a bigger beating without batting an eye.
These 27.5in rims each weigh roughly 453g, only slightly heavier than the AM rims, and they have more width, can take larger tires, and are much stronger—not a bad trade-off. One way the team in Ogden, Utah, increased strength was trading in traditional bead hooks for redesigned beadles hook beads that are lighter and have higher impact resistance.
ENVE achieved an internal width of 25mm to deliver a round tire profile that stays stable around corners by keeping more rubber on the ground at all times. ENVE’s engineers don’t settle for anything less than the best ride feel, and the M70 Thirty Wheelset is tuned to give you a degree if vertical compliance without sacrificing lateral rigidity.
The wheels are laced with DT Swiss 240 hubs that you can find in Centerlock or standard 6-bolt rotor interfaces, and you can choose between standard freehubs or an XD driver (works with SRAM’S one-by-eleven drivetrains).

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
With the wider profile, tubeless capablilities and Sapim XRay spokes, these may seem like any other carbon wheel on the market, but one ride reminded me why I choose ENVE. From less flats (yes, really, and I cannot explain why) during a ride to improved STRAVA times (if that's your thing), the benefits of the M70 are far reaching... But none so much as the sheer strength, like having an 800 pound pet gorilla back you up. There's one thing every rider looks for in a carbon wheel, and ENVE clearly has a crystal ball; the M70 27.5 wheels are light, fast and most importantly, strong. The hand-built wheels are built to be tough under extreme conditions... And Utah provides the best testing ground on the planet. As a downhill racer, I have a tendency to pick the lines that will get me from point A to point B the quickest (even on trail rides), but those lines are not necessarily the cleanest. That's where a rider's wheel choice comes in. Whether it's shark-toothed rock during leg-shattering climbs or flat hucks when you've miscalculated a landing, these wheels are up to any task you can throw at them. Why? The new M70 is the hybrid child of ENVE's previous AM and DH wheels and uses their system of ratios to determine the best wheel for the job. In this case, it's a 70/thirty ratio: seventy percent descent, thirty percent climbing. I was shocked at how well these wheels climb (well, not totally shocked), and delighted with the descent. They make 'endurolizing' more fun.
I mounted them on a 2015 Knolly Warden after using a different brand of wheels, and I was blown away at the stiffness, the maneuverability and the responsiveness of the ENVE trail/ enduro race wheel. Technical climbs, hammering descents, any corner, roots, drops and even wayward squirrels: these wheels are up to the task.

Light & Fast
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Without a doubt these are some light & stiff wheels as all would expect them to be.
The wheels also look amazing & they roll fast.
Obviously these wheels are expensive but that's nothing to harp on. There's other options out there.
Overall I believe these wheels will last the test of time & keep my bike rolling fast.
I can't figure out what the spokes are. I just recently broke a spoke and can't find it anywhere. Please help!!
I am curious to know if these wheels have been tested by riders outside of the 'norm' (eg over 175lbs). I'm at 230lbs ride ready and wonder if I'd end up destroying these like everything else.
Great great question. These wheels like all other modern carbon products are pretty damn stout. ENVE wouldn't make a downhill carbon wheel if they didn't believe it was better than alloy. We have a pro downhill racer Amanda Batty who works here who loves these wheels. Highly, Highly recommended. Let me know if I can help get an order going, email@example.com or you can reach me at extension 4769
I weigh about 225 and have been abusing my M70s for about 7 months now. I've hit drops, jumps, logs, rocks, and everything else, and I don't always land clean. The M70s have required ZERO maintenance or truing. None. I can't recommend these enough. I've felt your pain with trashing all kinds of wheels, and the ENVE's just laugh at everything.
