Review: Enve’s M735E Wheelset Fails Our Test
Definitely a bummer to hear these wheels faired so poorly and that the replacements that were sent out were in that kind of condition. I have ridden ENVE's for over 5 years through the different rim designs, have had multiple sets with only 1 cracked rim during that entire time. When it happened I realized I would have destroyed ANY carbon or alloy rim due to the large sharp rock I hit at speed coming off of the spine on the Crest Trail in Park City with WAY too low of air pressure. Totally my own fault. I contacted ENVE that day and they were awesome about getting my rim replaced quickly and even gave me a loaner rear wheel to use being I was not far from their headquarters in Ogden. I can't think of many companies that would have offered that up? The other thing that's funny about this reviewers feedback is he tested the new GT Fury a few weeks back and broke the main pivot on that bike twice. I have been riding a pre production Fury (the same one he was testing) through several days (6) in the Whistler Bike Park last season with no issues. In fact looking at Paul Astons stats I weigh WAY more than him and still have a perfectly in tact Fury. Sure it can be argued "I may not ride as fast" or "go as big" as him but I highly doubt it? Sounds to me like this reviewer likes to ride off the bike of the bike and just plow through stuff? Maybe? Maybe not? Just an opinion but if you try.....no matter how expensive or cheap a part or bike is you can break anything.
