ENVE's lauded M60 Forty wheelset brought lightweight, bombproof capability that bridged the gap between XC and all-mountain wheelsets with a mix of speed and hard-hit durability. With plus tires bursting on the scene in a big way, ENVE introduces the M60 Forty Plus 27.5in Boost Wheelset so you can have your plus-sized cake with snappy responsiveness and that coveted ENVE ride.
The 27.5in M60 Forty rim weighs in at 480g, which is feathery light considering its mammoth 40mm internal width and its designation as the widest rim of the entire M-series line. Part of this weight savings has been accomplished by trading in traditional bead hooks for a redesigned hookless bead, which is both lighter and more impact resistant. That wide internal platform is designed to pair optimally with 2.8 to 3.0-inch tires and provides a round tire profile, which translates to greater cornering stability and more rubber on the ground at any given time.
By relieving material from the rim, ENVE has taken the M60 Forty’s tuned ride to previously unseen levels. Anyone who’s familiar with ENVE knows the fanatical lengths that its engineers go to in order to achieve a perfect ride feel. As with its narrower siblings, the M60 Forty Plus has been tuned to provide a degree of vertical compliance, thereby reducing rider fatigue, without sacrificing the fantastic lateral rigidity that endows ENVE with the “on rails” feeling for which they’re prized, even with those plush plus tires.
The rim tells the bulk of the story, but it's also worth noting that 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 HG freehub or an XD driver for use with SRAM’s one-by 11 and 12-speed 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.
