The ultimate carbon fiber cross-country and marathon wheelset.

Mountain bikers who ride short-travel bikes, low-volume tires, and long distances.

Because cross-country riding and racing is most fun when your equipment allows you to ride how and what you want to. We believe the best cross-country wheelset should inspire confidence regardless of the terrain or race course. As such, the M50 is equally adept descending as it is ascending. The M50 is light, but not at the expense of strength; stiff but not to the detriment of comfort.

“Racing the World Cup is demanding on wheels and the M50 has exceeded all expectations. If a product is wrong I hear about it, but my racers don’t talk about the M50s because they just perform.”

– Cannondale Factory Racing

“Once again I’’ll say that there really are no better mountain wheels on the market right now than the M-Series, and I’’ve tried a lot of them.”

The ENVE M50 Fifty is a fast, cross-country specific carbon fiber mountain bike rim that plays host to new ENVE technologies and promises a ride experience second to none for XC riding and racing on hard-tails and short-travel suspension mountain bikes.

The ENVE M50 Fifty features ENVE’s patented molded spoke hole technology that allows for much better strength to weight ratio than other rims, as the carbon fibers are not drilled (and subsequently broken) to accommodate spokes. Given that the typical XC racer chooses a 29″ hardtail or short-travel suspension bike as their bike of choice the ENVE M50 features a full unidirectional carbon fiber construction and laminate design that provides more dampening and comfort for long hours spent in the saddle racing and training.

Further, at ENVE we use a removable bladder system and never uses paint or filler on our carbon rims. The result is a weight savings of approximately 120g per wheelset. Because cross-country racers and riders need equal performance on the climb and on the descent, the M50 Fifty is both lightweight and stiff, but strong and durable for uncompromising downhill performance.

The M50 is tubeless compatible and features a hookless design for superior tubeless performance. The ENVE M50 is proudly manufactured in the USA.

Front Axle

ENVE supports standard 100mm and boost 110mm front wheel 15mm thru-axle systems on all wheels except the M90 which uses a 20mm front axle. We can convert thru-axles to accommodate quick releases if your fork requires the use of a quick release. Front axle specifications are provided by your fork manufacturer.

Standard = 15mm x 100mm Thru-axle
Boost = 15mm x 110mm Thru-Axle

Rear Axle

Rear axle configuration is determined by your frame. You can find most in the specs section of the manufacturer website.
