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.

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.

12x142
The most common current rear axle configuration for all-mountain bikes.
12x148
This is boost. Frames 2015 model year and newer will most likely have a "boost" rear axle configuration.
12x150
