 What a crazy video for Enve to post up.
It appears to show that the Enve rim cracked at a force that dented/flat spotted a competitor where you could but 50 rims for the price of the Enve rim.
I am a fan of carbon and testing, but this just appears to be a silly video for Enve to put on Pinkbike.

I guess they tested with the weight dropped from 10 at the fracture point, then rotated the wheel and tested at 16 at the point shown.

Poor video.

 this is NOT the video ENVE should show, if they want to promote their product. its basic science. If you want a control for your experiment, it should have the same parameters, except for the variable which you want to test for. in other words, if you want to test this "top of the line" carbon wheel and claim it may be better than an aluminum counterpart, you should choose the top of the line aluminum wheel for comparison. on top of that, the ENVE wheel cracked following testing, where as the 50 dollar mtx rim had a "not so bad" dent.
