Enve Partners With BikePark Wales

by 5

Curious about carbon? BikePark Wales has teamed up with Enve to become the only European demo centre for their wheels. For £70 a day, you can book one of a few sets of Enve wheels, later refundable if you decide they’re the wheels for you and purchase some. If anything’s going to prove their durability, it’s probably rolling down the reds and blacks at BPW attached to a hire bike As well as that, they’ve updated their range of Fox forks and shocks available for demos. They’ve even got wheels and forks for 26ers. All can be booked in advance via www.bikeparkwales.com/demo-centre

BPW is the only place in Europe you can try before you buy.

David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly.

Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.

    Interesting. Does it only apply to hire bikes, or can you swap out the wheels on your own steed? Seems this would be more valid as you can then do a like for like comparison..

    They will fit them to your bike so you can see how your actual steed feels with carbon wheels. Costs £70 for the pleasure refundable off price of a new set of rims.

    Looking forward to some deals on some demo wheels in a few months

    £70 is too much just to try but i guess they are charging so much because the majority of people who will buy them have money to burn ?

    Pretty sure if you turn up with £70 in your pocket just to try these, you’ve already made the decision to buy them…

    If only I had £70, let alone the kind of wedge needed to afford a set of Enves. Still, I noticed a tangible difference when I swapped out my stock wheels for some Hope Hoops a while back. Would love to find out if the same applies for the jump from Hoops to Enves.
