Description

Every gram that you don't have to push along the road is time added and energy saved (that's why you shaved your legs and didn't drink any beer for 24 hours, right?), but lightening up your wheelset is probably the most efficient way to get a big performance boost by shaving a few grams. Lightness shouldn't come at the cost of stiffness, though; just ask ENVE, which designed its 1.45 Carbon Road Tubular Wheelset from carbon fiber, renowned for its winning combination of weight and rigidity.

With a 45mm rim depth, the 1.45 Carbon falls smack in the "do-it-all" section of the depth spectrum. Fast on climbs, flats, and descents, it weighs just 295g per wheel, so the rotational mass— how hard it is to get your wheels rolling, basically—is extremely low, which makes for efficient riding. Even accounting for hubs and skewers, the 1.45 weighs just 1128g as a set, so it's ready to be ridden hard on race day.

Weight is only half the equation, though. Even the lightest wheel has to be stiff, and, rather than drilling holes or using short fibers to weave gaps into the rim, ENVE's patented construction process creates spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve stem holes by routing continuous carbon fibers around each hole. Accordingly, the rigidity of the carbon structure is maintained and the weight is reduced around the inside of the rim. By keeping the stiffness-to-weight ratio high, ENVE keeps the 1.45 aggressive, capable of being ridden hard anywhere you find yourself.

ENVE hooked the 1.45 up with DT Swiss 240 hubs to keep you rolling free of resistance, and laced it up with DT Swiss Aerolite bladed spokes to keep aerodynamics high and rotational weight low. The tubular design provides a smooth and supple feel that's fully race ready, and the whole package is hand-built in the USA to ensure exceptional quality an attention to detail.

Here's what others have to say...

Are the nipples on these spokes/wheels internal or external?

Responded on

They spoke nipples are internal on these wheels. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order, get in touch me directly at gmcbride@backcountry.com and I can get you taken care of! These wheels rock.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Very very happy with the Enve wheels in general but especially the 1.45's. To get a wheel this light that will hold up over time and abuse is rare so these should definitely be on your race wheel consideration list. If you want a more general race wheel the 1.67's may suit you a little better in my opinion, but if your a weight weenie like me these will out climb anything out there. Just as importantly they are stiff, stable, and comfortable to ride. Braking was solid with the Enve brake pads, make sure you use those for sure. If you have any questions on these or any of the Enve road wheels contact me directly at kylebrown@backcountry.com.

These wheels are the best upgrade you can make to your Road/Cross bike. CF is not only light, but stiff for added efficiency.
