Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My dad finally replaced the drivetrain on his 2012 Look. Five years of riding 3-4 times a week at 25-50 miles each ride. Not too shabby old man! Yes you a pay premium for Italian steel but it has held up to the Minnesota humidity, rain and sun for five years. No complaints, just time to reinvest.
Best to replace the whole drive at once. Chainrings, chain and cassette.

These cranks are unbeatable if you are looking for something to beat up!
These could be most aptly be described as the Eagle XO1's burlier brother.
It's a bit heavier but the direct mount chainring is identical.
To my understanding, the only difference is that these are solid carbon arms which makes them tougher vs. the XO1s which have a foam core with a carbon chassis making them lighter.
I'm 100% happy with the product and 110% happier with the price.

Big pro is that if you were running a qr skewer of some sort you can easily convert your wheels to 142mm. These will not the solve problem folks are encountering when trying to jump to the new 148mm boost standard. These adapters will work on both 142mm and 148 DT boost hubs but they will not make a 142mm into a 148mm. Your will need to buy a new boost hub for that.

There are a lot of great carbon mtb wheel options out there. But the 5 year warranty is what keeps me loyal to the ENVE brand. It has be my experience in the past that ENVE holds true to their guarantees and honors their warranty if you are the original owner. MAKE SURE TO REGISTER YOUR WHEELS ON ENVE.COM! I bought the M60/forty series to replace some 50/fities that came on my Scalpel Team. The M60s have a slightly wider internal rim profile (2mm wider than the 50s) and are also a bit more robust which should add a little extra backbone when these are blasting around the local Park City trails.
These carbon wheels ride awesome but like ANY product associated with mountain biking, a bad bounce off a boulder or a poorly chosen line can sign the pink slip to one of these super-tough, super premium wheels.
Do yourself a favor, Register your fresh new wheels and shred with confidence!

For the price and weight, these wheels are hard to beat. I've been hammering on mine for 2 seasons. I've only broken 1 spoke due to a branch nub poking out of the trail. After I replaced the spoke, the rear wheel required minimal truing. I've done a variety of trail riding on these and have even taken my 429c on the dirt jumps up at the Canyons in Park City with no sign of fatigue. May not be the lightest wheelset out there but they are strong! I'm about 225 lbs and have barely done anything to them in regards to service. My only gripe is that replacement spokes can be tricky to source from an LBS.
