Description

Tubular tires are great for racing, as long as someone else is paying, but clincher tires are about 1000 times more practical for most of us. That doesn't mean they're slow, though. For proof, just check out the ENVE 25 Classic Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset, a rocket-powered package that performs nearly as well as tubulars for not much more than half the price.

With a 25mm rim depth, the 25 Classic is all about one thing—pure speed. Fast on climbs, flats, and descents, it weighs just 1376g per wheelset, so the rotational mass—how hard it is to get your wheels rolling, basically—is extremely low, which makes for efficient riding no matter where you are.

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. Longer fibers have more strength, so 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 25 Classic highly aggressive, capable of being ridden hard on roads or cyclocross courses.

As far as boosting speed goes, the build is as important as the construction. ENVE hooked the 25 Classic 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. This wheelset comes with either a Campagnolo- or Shimano-compatible freehub, both of which are 11-speed compatible, and the whole package is hand-built in the USA to ensure exceptional quality and attention to detail.

Here's what others have to say...

have you set these up tubeless?

Responded on

These wheels could be set up for tubeless cross use if you were keeping the pressure lower. I wouldn’t suggest setting them up tubeless for full 120psi use as they aren’t designed to hold a loose bead at that pressure. If you wanted to use them for cross, I would suggest some gorilla tape or the stan’s tubeless road kit.

Can anyone comment on the ride quality of these compared to Zipp 202s?
I love the buttery smoothness of the 202s - even with narrow tires, the Zipps seem to soak up lousy, cracked chip & seal roads in a way that alloy clinchers I've tried just don't, and all without leaving me feeling disconnected. I'd love to duplicate that comfortable & connected feeling in a low-profile wheel...
Any input is much appreciated!

MCM,

I have several customer's that own both and have reported back. The 202s seem to be the choice for raceday use- pure speed. The ENVE wheels are very very close, but slightly heavier/ more consistent rolling feel and much better hubs with bearings that will last multiple seasons. If you're looking for something race day only, its hard to beat a Zipp. If you want race day wheels for every day use, ENVE is a pretty clear choice.

Hey Adam - thanks for the feedback. My issue isn't so much "race day/every day" use. It's more that as a very light rider in a pretty windy region, the 202's were a bit of a sail in cross winds...
I actually ended up going with a set of DT Swiss RC 28 Splines. Haven't had a chance to put many miles on 'em yet, but so far I'm liking them a lot. Never any complaints on DT Swiss hubs, great road feel, and just enough lower profile that I'm not getting blown all over the road. A win, all around!

What a wheel

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What more can you say about Enve. This is the climbers dream wheel. Its light and super stiff, and the clincher version was a real surprise. I was always of the mindset that a tubular is faster and better on the road, but with the right tire and right tube the difference is unrecognizable. This now completes my Parlee Z5i with Enve cockpit and now wheels.

Is there a maximum rider limit on these...

Is there a maximum rider limit on these wheels?

Best Answer Responded on

Enve does not publish a rider weight limit for these wheels, so you should be good to go.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
