The first and only UCI World Cup-winning downhill carbon fiber wheelset.

Downhill riders and racers that have a no-holds-barred approach to their race equipment.

To raise the bar on our former World Championship winning ENVE DH wheelset and to provide the Santa Cruz Syndicate riders with the latest carbon fiber rim technology on the market. By saving weight, increasing strength and adding the utility of tubeless compatibility, the M90 is the wheelset of choice for today’s most discerning World Cup racers and mechanics.

“They will knock your socks off from the moment you drop into that first, aggressive run.”

Vital MTB

“The performance advantages of the M90 are real. The riders claim It allows them to take unique lines and ultimately go faster. For me, the durability is my favorite aspect; we replace only a small fraction of the rims we used to when we rode alloy.”

– Doug Hatfield – Syndicate Mechanic

The ENVE M90 Ten is unique as it is the only carbon fiber mountain bike rim that is fully optimized for downhill riding and racing. Consequently, the M90 Ten is the only carbon fiber wheelset that is actively being raced on the UCI Downhill World Cup Circuit. As such, the M90 has been ridden to the World Cup Downhill Overall Title under Santa Cruz Syndicate as well as numerous other World Cup podium finishes. The M90 saw success almost instantly on the World Cup circuit thanks to performance enhancing features such has hookless bead tubeless technology and ENVE’s patented molded spoke hole technology. Tubeless technology brings real time savings to downhill racing by eliminating the additional weight of inner tubes and reducing rolling resistance. Molded spoke holes increase the efficiency of the full unidirectional carbon fiber construction by ensuring that fibers run around the rim continuously and uncut thus saving weight and increasing strength. It goes without saying that a carbon fiber downhill rim needs to be strong. The M90’s geometry is the most robust of all the M Series wheels to ensure that the wheel can withstand the rigors of downhill racing and daily bike park laps. While the M90 is optimized and co-developed by World Cup downhill racers, it is equally at home on long, big-mountain shuttle descents that include either lift or helicopter accessed terrain. Given that the M90 is still lighter than some brands’ all-mountain rims, it is not unreasonable to consider pedaling the M90 up hill for very short intervals of time. As such, the M90 is optimized for downhill mountain bikes with travel ranging between 6.5-10″ (170 and 210mm). Each ENVE M90 Ten is manufactured in the USA.
