Boyd Updates Ridgeline All-Around MTB Wheelsets

Enduro strong and Cross Country light is what Boyd chose to highlight on its refreshed Ridgeline carbon mountain bike wheels, but there’s obviously more to it than strength and weight on the flagship mtb-wheels from a family-run wheel company.

Here’s what you’ll get for a competitive $1,700:

  • New rims with an increased internal rim width from 26mm to 30mm for improved traction and handling. Optimized for 2.3-2.7” tires, the new asymmetric (three millimeters offset) hookless rims also feature a three millimeter wall thickness for better impact protection. Tubeless ready, of course. The new rims carry a 36mm external width and 26mm depth.
  • Available in 27.5 (440 grams per rim) and 29″ (475 grams)
  • The wheels will be built with 28 spokes, two cross up front and 32 spokes, 3 three cross for the rear with aero stainless Pillar Wing 21 spokes and external brass nipples.
  • In the center is Boyd’s new trick Tripel hubset. Forged 6061 aluminum shells, six simultaneously engaging pawls with three teeth each. That equates to a 102 teeth drive-ring with quick 3.5 degree engagement that is also low-drag during coasting. 
  • As for hub spacing, the Ridgelines are available in traditional QRs, 15×100/12×142, boost, and super boost. The tool-free rear freehub can also be quickly swapped between standard Shimano, SRAM XD, as well as the new Shimano Micro Spline that are slowly gaining traction.
  • The Ridgeline 29 weighs at a claimed 1,825g per set (825g front, 1000g rear). The 27.5 version is 1,755g (790g front, 965g rear). Both are weighed with standard Boost hub. 
  • Both are available today along with lifetime warranties and lifetime crash replacement.

The ENVE Wheel Upgrade Program Is Back, Better Than Ever

Last fall ENVE offered its first ever trade-in/trade up program, and the popular program is back and better than ever.

While this year’s program remains largely the same where one will receive a $900 credit for trading in existing Enve wheels, or $600 for other brand’s carbon offerings from November 19, 2019 through January 3, 2020, ENVE is extending the offer to alloy wheels for a limited time. 

That’s right. Starting Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2019 through Dec. 2, 2019, your old tired aluminum wheels are now eligible for a $600 credit towards your next set of Enve hoops. More info here.

Always wanted to upgrade to ENVE hoops? Well, ENVE just made it easier thanks to its new trade-in/trade-up your existing carbon wheels for their latest offerings, a first for the Utah-based composite specialist since its founding in 2007.

ENVE Trade In Trade Up program

With the new upgrade program, current ENVE owners will get a $1,000 trade-in credit for their ENVE wheels while non-ENVE branded carbon wheelsets will get a $700 credit towards a new set of ENVE wheels. Be it the M Series for mountain bikes, the SES line for the road, or the G series for gravel/cross, the choice is yours.

Also worth noting, the wheels will come with full factory warranty for incident protection at no additional charge, as well as impact damage to original owners.

The offer begins today and will run until December 31st, 2018
