  • This 1.65 tubular wheel is deep, aero, and surprisingly light.
  • We paired the ENVE rims with unbranded hubs that are supplied as OEM hubs in other wheelsets.  They are lighter than DT Swiss 190's, but every bit as usable.
  • Formerly called Edge, ENVE keeps most of the same graphics, but an updated logo.
  • We used a shallower 1.45 front wheel (left), and a deeper 1.65 rear (right) to help with handling in crosswinds, and keep the weight down.

  • The pair looks stunning together.
  • The tubular rims are a good match with the 22mm Continental Sprinter tires we put on.  We picked those wheels for their balanced specs - they have respectable rolling resistance and ride quality, are moderately narrow, quite puncture resistant, and have a great ride quality.
  • You can be forgiven for spelling these E-N-V-Y, because we know you want them.
