Enve Composites

  • The Good:

    Super light. Ti hardware. Pimp daddy status.

    The Bad:

    Inserts in stem for bolts at slightly awkward angle. Price.

    Overall Review: One of those parts that everyone struggles with wrapping your mind around the price. I bought this because it was in line with my "balls out" build on my bike and did not regret it. Nice and light, did not break, and I love bike parts... lol Only thing I did not like is how the angle of the st...

  • The Good:

    Have stayed true, round, have had zero maintenance since 2013, spin up well and stiff. Oh and i have never had to touch the spoke tension, just give them an oiling, once!

    The Bad:

    Nowt. There is nothing i bad about them, other than having to rob a bank to buy them.

    Overall Review: I have been running as set of 29" AMs, own my old Tall Boy since late 2013. These wheels have been awesome. I have not had to touch them, I have be used on river side trails, The Pisgah Stage race, the forests in Indiana and Dallas, and are now being hammered through, roots, rock gardens and dow...

  • There is no doubt that $3000 is a lot of money to spend on a carbon wheelset, especially for a mountain bike. First, because you can easily find a perfectly good ENTIRE BIKE for that kind of money, and second, because on a mountain bike you know the wheels are going to have a tough life. That ha...

  • The Good:

    This wheel gives confidence wherever you point it, and pops out of the corners.

    The Bad:

    Cracked on a wimpy trail

    Overall Review: I had these wheels on my yeti sb6c and found myself more confident and pushing myself to go faster. If you are looking for a stiff rim that does it exactly what you expect it to, then this is a great choice, however it is an expensive one! I had zero complaints with the enve wheels and found t...

  • The Good:

    They really do help cut down on trail buzz. This reduces fatigue significantly on long, 3hr plus rides. Matched with big chunky oury grips, very comfy.

    The Bad:

    Price, but these are the best

    Overall Review: Tried other carbon bars, these are so nice. You get what you pay for. My favourite XC bar. One minor crash in their life, no concerns over integrity.

  • By A.J. Barlas // Photography A.J. Barlas & Brandon Turman There is no shortage of wheels for mountain bikers to choose from and we've tested a number of them over the past couple of years - some we've been pleased with while others have been less than ideal.A large number of these are foc...

  • Review by A.J. Barlas // Photography Jon Anthony & A.J. Barlas Technology in mountain biking has been progressing at an alarming rate the last 5 or so years. 10 years ago carbon on a mountain bike was often thought of as a scary, testing-fate kind of scenario to enter into, but now it's al...

  • by Steve Wentz I love chocolate chip cookies. The butter, the sugar, the chocolate chips, I don't know how it could get any better. I think one thing I really appreciate is the fact that the best ones tend to be homemade. There is a certain amount of care and love that goes into the best homem...

  • The Good:

    strong and light, good/simple graphics

    The Bad:

    a bit spendy, but not much more than similar options

    Overall Review: About a year ago I gouged my Easton Havoc carbon bar in a crash at bootleg canyon and afterward I was a bit nervous riding it with such a deep scratch and so decided to get a new bar. I mixed it up and bought a buddy's nearly new ENVE DH bar to see what I thought.  In many regards it i...

  • The Good:

    Everythyng.

    The Bad:

    Hard to find in Belgium.

    Overall Review: Incredybly strong bars and a perfect shape , matches perfect on my v10

  • The Good:

    Looks, finish, weight, strength, durability, etc, etc, etc.

    The Bad:

    Sticker price. The best isn't usually cheap.

    Overall Review: I rode the Enve DH bars for over a season and a half on my SC Nomad. XC, trail, a few chair lift service days and two Enduro events. I had a few good crashes here and there (albeit nothing horrible) and these bars never showed any signs of failure or fatigue, just one good scratch on the front. ...

  • The Good:

    Super stiff and relatively the lightest among all hardcore handlebars. Its looks, strength and stiffness provide you with confidence.

    The Bad:

    The only bad thing about this handlebar is the check out price....

    Overall Review: So far it is the chosen handlebar for DH, Freeride,Aggressive AM and Gravity Enduro type of rides for its stiff, light, strength and certainly its looks.
