Back in August we took a close look at ENVE’s overhauled second generation M Series carbon wheels that might just eliminate pinch flats. Thanks to a new generously radius-ed wide hookless bead on their light duty XC & Trail wheels (M5 & M6) and the new protective rim strip on their Enduro & DH wheels (M7 & M9), ENVE has had difficulty even trying to induce pinch flats (even when they smashed their rim to failure…check that link!).

Well, all of those new M series wheels are now available, in seven models – M525, M630, M635, M640, M730, M735 & M930 – and both 27.5″ and 29″ variants.
To celebrate, ENVE just released this video of Luke Strobel running the new M7 wheels through their paces on the Whole Enchilada in Utah. Starting high up in the La Sal mountains the trail descends through several types of technical terrain down to the harsh red rocks of Moab, ending next to the Colorado River. It’s one of ENVE’s favorite places to try to break(in) their new wheels.
