The M525 is a lightweight, full carbon tubeless compatible clincher that has been developed specifically for the demands of world cup cross country racing. Consequently, many of the same attributes that make for a great XC race wheel also deliver a ride quality that inspires confidence for off-road drop bar endeavors.
Gravel riders, cyclocross racers, road plus riders, and adventurers looking for a high performance, high volume tubeless rim in either 700c or 650b diameter.
There’s something about the road less traveled that beckons us to explore beyond the confines of the pavement. As we’ve spent more time off-road we’ve compiled a list of a qualities that make for a superior ride experience when riding unsuspended off-road. Qualities such as a lightweight design, strength, vertical compliance, and anti-flat technology. The M525 encapsulates these features, making it the best option in the ENVE wheel lineup for riders seeking the best gravel riding experience.

The M525 takes on an all new construction with additional features that replace the beloved ENVE M50. When designing the M525, the primary goal was to reset the consideration set for ride quality from a lightweight cross-country race wheel. The result is a wheel that strikes a fine balance between weight savings, vertical compliance, and strength. The M525 is available in both 700c (29”) and 650b (27.5”) diameters and an inner rim width of 25mm. The M525 performs extremely well with modern tubeless tires that have been designed for activities ranging from gravel riding to cross country mountain bike racing. As such, if you’re tire preference falls on the small end of the spectrum or 32c or larger, then the M525 should be your wheelset of choice. In addition to a lightweight, high volume construction, the M525 features ENVE’s light weight anti-pinch flat technology referred to as Wide Hookless Beads. This technology is valuable considering that the number one cause of a mechanical on gravel roads is a flat tire. Lack of suspension and lower volume tires mean that your tires must perform above and beyond to ensure you make it back home after a long day on the dusty road. The Wide Hookless Bead technology featured on the M525 provides a compliant bumper for the tire in the instance of the tire bottoming out on the rim – ultimately preventing a pinch flat.

ENVE’s patented Molded Spoke Hole Technology offers a variety of benefits that ultimately result in a more durable and reliable carbon fiber rim and wheel. Visit Why ENVE for more details.
As carbon rims have become hookless and increasingly more durable, we have transitioned from rim failures to tire failures. Wearing a tire tread down to the casing is a thing of the past as most tires are lucky if they survive 50 miles of aggressive riding over obstacle laden terrain. While destroying an expensive tire on a weekly basis isn’t affordable, it’s a complete interruption of flow, and an utter buzzkill with a flat tire, regulated to the side of the trail.
ENVE’s wide hookless bead is the result of 2 years of carbon mountain bike rim development to address this above scenario. The result is a rim shape that features a wider leading edge of the hookless bead. This broad surface creates a more forgiving platform on which the tire can bottom out, and proves extremely effective in reducing the likelihood of “pinch” or “snake-bite” style flat.
In addition to greatly improving tire performance and reliability, the wide hookless bead design beefs up the leading edge of the rim and allows for greater impact resistance.
ENVE Wide Hookless Bead (Patent Pending) delivers:
• 60% improvement in pinch flat resistance over other hookless rims
• Ability to run lower tire pressure and improve traction and rolling resistance
• The option to run lighter weight tires if desired
• A more forgiving buffer between rim and trail
• Greater impact resistance
Each rim and wheel model in the ENVE M Series is specifically designed for a refined application specific ride experience.
Paying tribute to the original M Series, the M5, M6, M7, and M9 Series follow the original M Series descent to climb ratios that are used to help you the rider align your ride preferences with the appropriate M Series wheel for you.
We tune each M series wheel model to the intended application by tuning everything from hole count to the very carbon laminate used to create the rim’s structure.
