The ENVE G Series disc-specific wheelset is designed to offer serious gravel riders a performance upgrade to improve the off-road drop bar ride experience with low weight and enhanced puncture protection.
There's a place between road and MTB open to discovery – somewhere beyond the range of your trail bike or the capabilities of your road bike. Terrain littered with challenges and technical demands. Higher tyre volumes and lower pressures require MTB toughness and flat resistance, while big days and long miles need the lightweight and efficiency of a fast-rolling road wheel.
With the G23 and G27, ENVE has created a wheel with the ride quality to make long miles enjoyable and multi-day treks possible while ramping up the fun, speed and ride experience.
The G23 gets its name from its 23mm internal rim width and is optimised for 35 to 45mm tyres with a 40mm tyre hitting the sweet spot maximum versatility, speed and efficiency. It's ideal for riders seeking challenge of drop-bar riding over more technical terrain that is typically frequented by mountain bikes will benefit from the additional air volume, durability, and anti-flat performance.
With a weight of just 330g, the G23 is ENVE's lightest 700c carbon clincher rim meaning it accelerates quickly and ascends with ease. However, it's not designed to be treated delicately – ENVE's G Series wheels have been tested to MTB standards tailored to the demands of gravel riding.
The G27 gets its name from its 27mm internal rim width and is optimised for 27.5/650b XC 2.0 to 2.25 tyres. Riders who frequent rough and loose terrain or who primarily ride dirt, and prioritise traction and stable control over flat-out speed will gravitate towards the G27, benefitting from the additional air volume, durability, and anti-flat performance.
With a weight of just 320g, the G27 accelerates quickly and ascends with ease. However, it's not designed to be treated delicately – ENVE's G Series wheels have been tested to MTB standards tailored to the demands of gravel riding.
The rim has been designed with a bell-shaped profile for more vertical compliance and energy absorption. The result is a more comfortable and confidence-inspiring ride feel with added impact toughness that ultimately makes for faster riding. The G23/27 rims are tough and relentless on road, path or trail whether you're riding hard or going for a week-long adventure.
While the G23/27 has been designed from the ground-up as a dedicated gravel wheelset, it shares the Wide Hookless Bead technology seen across ENVE's M Series MTB wheels. This wide 4.5mm rim bead shape reduces the likelihood of pinch-flatting your tubeless tyre or cracking the rim by working in parallel with the rim's shape and carbon laminate to dissipate impact energy.
The G23/27 is intended for tubeless applications and features a moulded bead-lock to ensure that your tyres will remain secure and sealed to the rim over even the roughest terrain.
Industry leaders in carbon fibre, every ENVE rim is handmade from raw uni-directional carbon at ENVE's headquarters in Utah, USA. The bespoke construction process utilises rim-specific carbon laminates, moulded spoke holes, removable bladders, and a gorgeous paint-free finish to reduce weight while maintaining strength, stiffness and allowing the beautiful handmade quality to shine through.
Every single R45 CL hub is engineered, manufactured and assembled in-house at Chris King’s HQ in Portland, Oregon. Fully serviceable and with a five-year warranty, you can be confident that you’re investing in an elite performance product that has been built to last. R45 CL hubs are synonymous with silky-smoothness, unbeatable quality and of course that distinctive angry bee sound that resounds from the hub body.
R45 CL hubs utilise an innovative 45-tooth RingDrive system for minimal drag and almost instant engagement, translating power from your legs directly into forward propulsion. As engagement systems go, this really is the best of the best. The legendary bearings and heat-treated, surgical grade steel races employed in the R45 CL not only form a super-smooth integrated system but actually become faster as they burnish with use – wearing
Available in a wide variety of colours, R45 CL hubs enable you to give your bike a truly custom flair. Please note that some colours may require bespoke shipment for the USA and may take a little longer to acquire.
