Close Up: ENVE Composites Carbon DH Handlebar and UST Mountain Bike Rims

enve composites carbon fiber tubeless ready mountain bike rim

ENVE Composites showed off their new stuff at Interbike last fall, but it’s always nice to snap a few close up photos as some of the items have progressed to (or close to) production. Above is their upcoming UST tubeless ready carbon fiber mountain bike rim. Looks like it’s keeping the spoke holes in the bed, likely for ease of manufacturing reasons, so you’ll need tape, but ENVE says common sealants won’t affect the carbon in any way.

They also had their new carbon downhill riser bar, close up photos after the break…

Check the specs on the new DH bar in this post. Nice that they mark them with cut guides.

Oooh, nice. Wonder what weights are… and if the rims are offered in a 29’er model.
