I don't know if Enve has addressed this issue with the 4.5 but I certainly hope so. The Aeolus is far less prone to brake rub by comparison.

1m93 and max 75kg => 165lbs???
Power output doesn’t really matter. I can get Rub without power just by letting the bike go the left and right in a certain angle while riding.

Yup. My first Enve wheels were stock Enve builds with 240 hubs and CX-Ray spokes.
I have a few new sets with White T11 hubs and DT Race db spokes - much better.
Good stuff. Thanks for sharing.
I’ve had a pair of enve 4.5s for the past 2 seasons and never had an issue with brake rub that I’ve noticed. Stock build with dtswiss 240s.
- Parlee Altum + DA9150 + Enve SES 4.5 carbon hubs
- Parlee ESX + DA9150 + THM SRM PM + Enve SES 6.7 CK hubs
- Independent Fabrication Ti FLW + DA9100 + Enve 3.4 CK hubs
Question for ergott or stradajon: Would the CX-Sprint be strong enough or do I need to switch to a non aero spoke for the DS?

Nothing beats the Wheels Mfg hub for this. Better bracing angles and also better bearing placement so there's less unsupported axle. It's like going from a square taper crank/BB to outboard BB setup.
I agree but with the carbon hub investment already made, I would prefer to make this setup work and keep the Alchemy or Carbon-Ti X-Hub Road SP option for the next build. Thank you for your valued input, I will likely go with CX-Sprints for the DS on the 7.8 rear.

Any thoughts on berd polymer spokes? http://www.berdspokes.com/
