Enve has introduced a new M Series carbon mountain bike wheelset and fork designed specifically for fat bikes.
The M685 features an 85mm internal rim width in both 26 inch and 27.5 inch diameters, and was designed and developed from the ground up to meet application specific ride quality and performance metrics.
The new fat bike wheel features Enve’s patented Wide Hookless Bead anti pinch-flat technology.
The Enve Fat Fork features five inch of tyre clearance and utilises a reversible drop-out chip that adjusts the rake of the fork allowing for optimised handling with either a 26 inch or 27.5 inch wheel.
Jake Pantone, Enve VP of product and consumer experience, said: “We developed the new M685 rim and Fat Fork to deliver a better ride experience for performance oriented fat bike riders.
“In the discovery phase of this project, we identified the need to keep the rim weight as low as possible without compromising terrain applications, and for a shape that helps shed snow and mud.
“When we rode the lightest weight rims on the market, their shallow and flat surfaces led to snow and mud accumulation that often added pounds of weight to each wheel.
“This insight led us to the M685’s rim shape which features steep sidewall angles and a deeper cross section.
“This rim shape sheds snow more easily keeping the weight low in all trail conditions.”
The new M685 wheelset and Fat Fork are now available for pre-order, and will ship globally to consumers and retail partners by the end of November.
