For hard chargers.

The ENVE M70 Thirty 27.5in Wheelset is the even burlier replacement to the AM-series rim. Taking lessons learned from ENVE’s World Cup DH program, the M70 Thirty has been designed specifically for hard-charging riders who earn their runs by pedaling back up to the top. With a generous internal width, and an even stronger redesigned profile, this wheelset is ready to take whatever you can throw at it, and come back begging for more.

When ENVE set about designing the M70 Thirty, the goal was to build a rim that was stronger and more capable than the AM rim. Unsurprisingly, the team in Ogden delivered in spades. The 27.5in M70 Thirty rim now weighs 453g, making it slightly heavier than the AM rim, but the payoff is increased width, to better accommodate today’s larger tires, and astounding strength. Part of the strength increase comes from trading in traditional bead hooks for a redesigned beadless hook bead, which is both lighter and more impact resistant. The width is a whopping 25mm internally, which provides a round tire profile, for greater cornering stability, and more rubber on the ground at any given time. Anyone who’s familiar with ENVE knows the fanatical lengths that its engineers go to in order to achieve a perfect ride feel. Accordingly, the M70 Thirty has been tuned to provide a degree of vertical compliance, enhancing both grip and rider comfort, without sacrificing the fantastic lateral rigidity that endows ENVE with the “on rails” feeling for which they’re prized.

The rim tells most of the story, but these wheels are hand built in Utah, to exacting standards, which provides the longevity you’d expect out of a class-leading wheel system. They’re laced to DT Swiss 240 hubs, with your choice of either a Centerlock or standard 6-bolt rotor interface. Additionally, you can choose between a standard freehub or an XD driver, for use with SRAM’s one-by-eleven drivetrains. The 240s have become a staple for their lightweight construction, remarkable durability, and tool-free service, which makes them a perfect match for an ENVE wheelset, which might very well outlast your next bike, or two.

The ENVE M70 Thirty 27.5in Wheelset is available with either an XD or standard freehub, with Centerlock or 6-bolt hubs, and in the color Black.

I can't figure out what the spokes are. I just recently broke a spoke and can't find it anywhere. Please help!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

With the wider profile, tubeless capablilities and Sapim XRay spokes, these may seem like any other carbon wheel on the market, but one ride reminded me why I choose ENVE. From less flats (yes, really, and I cannot explain why) during a ride to improved STRAVA times (if that's your thing), the benefits of the M70 are far reaching... But none so much as the sheer strength, like having an 800 pound pet gorilla back you up. There's one thing every rider looks for in a carbon wheel, and ENVE clearly has a crystal ball; the M70 27.5 wheels are light, fast and most importantly, strong. The hand-built wheels are built to be tough under extreme conditions... And Utah provides the best testing ground on the planet. As a downhill racer, I have a tendency to pick the lines that will get me from point A to point B the quickest (even on trail rides), but those lines are not necessarily the cleanest. That's where a rider's wheel choice comes in. Whether it's shark-toothed rock during leg-shattering climbs or flat hucks when you've miscalculated a landing, these wheels are up to any task you can throw at them. Why? The new M70 is the hybrid child of ENVE's previous AM and DH wheels and uses their system of ratios to determine the best wheel for the job. In this case, it's a 70/thirty ratio: seventy percent descent, thirty percent climbing. I was shocked at how well these wheels climb (well, not totally shocked), and delighted with the descent. They make 'endurolizing' more fun.

I mounted them on a 2015 Knolly Warden after using a different brand of wheels, and I was blown away at the stiffness, the maneuverability and the responsiveness of the ENVE trail/ enduro race wheel. Technical climbs, hammering descents, any corner, roots, drops and even wayward squirrels: these wheels are up to the task.

I am curious to know if these wheels have been tested by riders outside of the 'norm' (eg over 175lbs). I'm at 230lbs ride ready and wonder if I'd end up destroying these like everything else.

Great great question. These wheels like all other modern carbon products are pretty damn stout. ENVE wouldn't make a downhill carbon wheel if they didn't believe it was better than alloy. We have a pro downhill racer Amanda Batty who works here who loves these wheels. Highly, Highly recommended. Let me know if I can help get an order going, gmcbride@backcountry.com or you can reach me at extension 4769

I weigh about 225 and have been abusing my M70s for about 7 months now. I've hit drops, jumps, logs, rocks, and everything else, and I don't always land clean. The M70s have required ZERO maintenance or truing. None. I can't recommend these enough. I've felt your pain with trashing all kinds of wheels, and the ENVE's just laugh at everything.

Light & Fast

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Without a doubt these are some light & stiff wheels as all would expect them to be.

The wheels also look amazing & they roll fast.

Obviously these wheels are expensive but that's nothing to harp on. There's other options out there.

Overall I believe these wheels will last the test of time & keep my bike rolling fast.
