Gravel riding and racing has come into its own with more and more cyclists adding gravel bikes to their stable, or trading in their pure road bikes for the versatility of an all-road drop bar bike. As such, the creation for components designed exclusively for riding over mixed terrain has blossomed and whether it's a multi-week bikepacking trip or just exploring some seldom used B-roads that's an easy bike ride from the house, all-road riding provides new riding opportunities and an escape from traffic. Just like other cycling disciplines, wider tire widths are dictating rim sizes and influencing wheel design. We've reached a point in gravel riding where, just as in mountain biking, some riders are opting for "plus" tires which in short, use a smaller diameter wheel (650b) with a wide, larger volume tire that make up almost the circumference of a 700c tire. What's achieved is the ability to run lower tire pressure, more floatation over loose terrain, and better traction and comfort over chunky gravel.

As part of ENVE's first gravel specific rim offering, these 650b tubeless hoops are extremely light at 320-grams per rim making short work of climbs and improving the overall handling of your bike. Factor in ENVE's Wide Hookless Bead technology for improved tire and rim durability and its optimized width for 650b tires between 2 and 2. 2-inches wide and you have a premium setup that's more than strong enoug...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
