Trail-tough, quick-mannered, and completely innovative, the M7 is the trail wheel on steroids that protects you from flat tyres and lets you toss your tubeless tape in the bin. Hard-charging trail riding runs on two things – confidence and control. Nothing ruins a good shred fest like a flat tyre or broken rim, and nothing spooks you on a dusty trail like an unexpected drift. With this in mind we have been hard at work to develop a carbon wheel system that will allow ourselves, our athletes, and most importantly – you – to push yourself to the next level. We set out to solve two issues with the M7: pinch flats and tubeless setup. Using our patented Protective Rim Strip, we eliminated pinch flats, while also making tire inserts unnecessary. This means saying goodbye to foam hoops, heavy DH casing tires, 30+ psi pressures, and dated rim designs. We also took tubeless tape out of the equation, making tubeless setup as simple as sliding a strip onto the rim and setting the tire with a floor pump. Say goodbye to the frustration of tiny bubbles or creases in tape hidden under a freshly-set tire. PROTECTIVE RIM STRIP - GOODBYE TO PINCH FLATS AND INSERTS The ENVE Protective Rim Strip delivers: Unprecedented pinch/snake-bite flat resistance Ability to run lower pressure and improve traction and rolling resistance (Visit our tire pressure page to dial in your best pressure) The option to run lighter weight tires if desired A protective buffer between rim and trail Improved tubeless performance and durability by eliminating the need to tape rims for a tubeless seal Independent tubeless seal that can allow air pressure integrity in the instance the carbon is damaged or cracked Increased width at leading edge dissipates impact energy and prevent pinch flats. Strip material absorbs energy protecting the ultra-lightweight carbon rim structure. Strip completely seals the air chamber, removes the need for tape and maintains pressure should the carbon be damaged. Full carbon laminate tuned for energy absorption and a smooth ride without sacrificing straight line tracking and lateral stiffness performance.
