Video: up close with Enve's new gravel-specific G Series wheelset

Enve recently launched their first gravel-specific wheelset, and we got to ogle them up close when Jamie Wilkins from Enve paid us a visit...

Last week Enve launched their first gravel-specific wheels, the G Series, which includes the G23 700C and G27 650b options... and this week we got to see the G23's up close when Jamie Wilkins from Enve paid us a visit.

Is 650b right for you?

The wheels we saw in the video are the G23 700c versions, and the weight is a featherlight 1,342g for the set which is actually lighter than most road wheels built for climbing. Enve are recommending low tyre pressures of between 25 and 35psi for the 650b versions, with the unique bell shape of the rim protecting against pinch flats or your tyres bottoming out over rough terrain. The G23 and G27 will be available to buy in the UK from next month, and we'll be hoping to get a set in for review soon...

Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
