Look stunning, I'm getting some of the 3.4 SES rims on Mig70.Mag170 hubs on my new build. I've contacted David @ DCR to get a quote (he built a set of AL33's on Tune for me last year).

What are you expecting these to come in at, Enve claim about 1550 for DT240's, so around the 1490g mark with Tune?

I think rim weight wise the 5.6's are similar to my AL33's, so climbing wise they should still be pretty sharp

Are you going to run them tubeless?

Yes Steven , going to run tubeless on Schwabe Pro one's
Weight wise I think you are about on the money , I will see if Dave will weigh them before mounting the tyres (If he hasn't already )

Been waiting since they announced them to suppliers back in April ! We hoped they might appear in the summer but alas it didn't happen .
Dimension Data seemed to run the only sets around at TDF.

Will be interesting to compare braking to my Mavic Exalith rims as I wonder if any of that knowledge has gone over to Enve under the joint ownership.

I have bontragers and mavics cosmic Exalith rims

The bontragers are heavy , the mavics I think are around 1595g and fully set up like for like as a pair the enve's are 200g lighter

My madone 9.0 was built up with the aerobars and full di2 so it is effectively a 9.5 but I didn't want a silver bike and saved money building the way I did as I paid £500 For a full di2 setup

Well ride out today , how do they ride , much stiffer at the rear climbing out the saddle, lovely comfortable ride , had them at 90psi but I am 86kgs

Kerbside appeal awesome, much admiration from my club mates

Felt fast on the flat so the pseudo effect is good Image

Also should add , braking surface is excellent .
Once pads had bedded in almost as good as my Exalith rims
