The ENVE's M60 Forty 27. 5in Wheelset is an ideal match for the latest generation of lightweight, shockingly capable trail bikes. This rim was designed to sit between the previous XC and AM rim, making it perfect for the way that most of us actually ride our mountain bikes. And with a completely redesigned profile that was six years in the making, you're looking at a wheelset that's stable and tough. Oh, and don't forget, it's XC-race light. Welcome to the future. When ENVE set about designing the M60 Forty, the goal was to build a rim that occupied the space between the previous XC and AM rims, with the understanding that the aforementioned midpoint represented the ultimate rim for the way that most people ride off-road. Unsurprisingly, the team in Ogden, UT delivered in spades. The 27. 5in M60 Forty rim weighs a claimed 374g, making it 40g lighter than the previous AM rim and nearly the same weight as the XC.

The rim tells most of the story, but these wheels are hand built in northern Utah to exacting standards, which produces the longevity you'd expect out of a class-leading w...
