In 2012 ENVE
launched a full-carbon downhill rim and the Syndicate's Greg Minnaar rode it to a World Championship victory. Now, ENVE announces their first full-carbon 27.5-inch downhill rim.
The ENVE DH
is designed to perform at the top levels of downhill racing. The high performance nature of this rim is attributed to a proprietary manufacturing process, targeted laminate, and a purpose driven design. The ENVE DH rim is 31-millimeters deep, weighs a claimed 1 pound, 3 ounces, and features a 21-millimeter inner bead to bead width making it the ideal platform for wide downhill tires. ENVE's 27.5 DH Rims retail for $999/rim and $2750 as complete wheel sets built using DT Swiss or Chris King hubs and will begin shipping in June 2013.
