ENVE M525, Industry Nine Torch Centerlock 650b
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.
The Torch road hubs use the same drivering and pawls as the mountain hubs. However, I9 reduced the pawl count to 3 instead of 6 for lower drag and weight while still achieving an industry leading (for road hubs) 6 degree engagement. Relocated bearings, and a new freehub seal reduce freehub drag while coasting.
The Torch road hubs now feature custom Teflon contact seals for the endcaps, which are manufactured in-house. They fully seal the hubs from mud and water - tight enough for a muddy CX season, but smooth enough for drag-free road miles. And in the coolest colors you'll ever see.
Built with black CX Ray spokes and Enve’s brass internal nipples. Tubeless tape and color matched valves included.
