Enve has been at the forefront of carbon mountain bike wheels and this new Twenty9 XC rim is their finest work yet. The process starts in the USA, that's right, handmade in Ogden Utah. Using the newest layup technologies, Enve has been able to get more heat and more pressure into their mold which compresses the layers of carbon together even tighter resulting in more strength from less material. This optimized process provides a lighter rim that is even stronger than many other rims. Also, because they mold rather than drill their spoke holes into the wheels they are able to hold substantial spoke tension. In addition they have made these wheels Tubeless, so with their rimstrip and valve stem you can mount up your favorite tubeless tires and hit the trail.
All of this technology basically means you can build up a new 29er wheel that reduces rolling mass so much that it completely changes the feel of your bike. Climbing is a new experience on these rims. Elevation will scroll on your Garmin faster than you have seen before. The best part is, when you turn around and gravity takes over you have the confidence of Tyler Durden with of the precise handling that these rims like to flaunt
