First Ride: Roval's Control SL Team Wheels Use Carbon Spokes & Weigh 1190 Grams
@trellis-opportunity-red: I have a set as well - the first set was recalled and replaced. I raced cx on the new set for 3 years including several huck-to-sand moments, still running true. I think they're a cool bit of tech, ride rather stiff, but the 'exploding spokes' visual turned everyone off. Mavic followed that up with the fully molded CF wheel: two halves bonded in the center of the hub. Definitely road race whippet use only.

Velo Digest: Haro's Drop Bar Bikes, 'Revolutionizing' Helmet Straps, Baking Soda Performance-Boosters, & More
Pretty sure it’s a throwback or version of a mid 80’s BMX freestyle bike that I desperately wanted.

Amer Sports Sells ENVE to Utah-Based Private Investment Firm
@foggnm: you gotta remember that when Amer picked up Enve, they still owned Mavic, which was part of the Salomon group. No doubt there was some strategerry talk about synergies (as with Arc and Salomon + Atomic) on how to address different market segments. But Mavic is long gone. They were the class act for a long time; continued acquisitions were their doom. Just too much disruption. How do you run a viable customer service through that, let alone sponsor top riders and teams? Yellow rims used to be The Sh*t, anyone recall?

Amer Sports Sells ENVE to Utah-Based Private Investment Firm
@cloverleaf: Suunto couldn’t keep up with the established players (Garmin) nor the newcomers (Apple, Google) to the space. They had to attempt competition rather than sticking with their decent range of HR monitors and specialized wrist computers. I owned a Spartan GPS watch and it never really lived up to promises nor into a viable exercise flow.

Amer Sports Sells ENVE to Utah-Based Private Investment Firm
Ex-Amer subsidiary employee here. This is a good thing, if for no other reason than they aren't owned by Amer anymore, which in turn is owned by the Anta conglomerate. Anta is interested in growing adventure apparel and seasonal gear (e.g. skiing) brands globally but notably across Asia. Hardware companies like Enve will never have those velocities, those margins, and year after year of looking at results and seeing your otherwise-solid hardware or equipment company be the 'dog' of the corporate report gets really fkn old. Look at the commensurate expansion that Amer/Anta is putting into Arcteryx. "Amer Sports has experienced success with its portfolio brands in the Greater China region, with Arc’teryx and Salomon leading the way. In the nine months to September 30, 2023, Amer Sports reported a striking 67.6 percent increase in revenue from the Greater China region, totaling $593 million, up from $353.8 million the previous year. Salomon’s revenue in Greater China hit $91.2 million between January and September 2023, a 63 percent YoY rise." (data from March 2024). If Hancock runs Enve as a reasonable business, expecting reasonable margins, and supports its people, that's the best case scenario.
