Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Let's face it. When it comes to high end XC bike parts, the bottom line is the WEIGHT. Period. It's a never ending battle which manufacturer makes the most ultralight bike parts each year. Why is Enve parts so expensive? I always wondered about that. Supposedly these are the lightest XC carbon wheelset they make? $2718??? For a pair of wheelset? What the hell they've been smoking?
I own a Specialized S-Works Epic World Cup, which is one of the lightest full suspension XC bike ever made(tick over 20lbs) and it comes with Roval Control SL Wheelset. And this wheelset alone costs $1800 retail. And wow, Enve weighs 9 grams less. That's equivalent to 2 packets of sugar, but costs almost a grand more? Save yourself almost a thousand bucks and get the Roval SL. And yes they are "stiff", the most popular word in bike universe.
