With a 31mm depth, an external rim width of 28mm and an internal rim width of 21mm, it’s obvious ENVE wanted to make a cyclocross-specific wheelset for dedicated ‘cross athletes. Available as tubular-only, these made in the USA carbon wheels were designed specifically for the weekend races and are available in a variety of hub, freewheel and axle specifications. Head over to ENVE for more information.
We loved Niner’s RLT9 Steel ‘cross bike but even in its perfectly capable form, Niner felt like “good” wasn’t enough so they took the entire RLT9 line and gave it thru-axles along with a new fork. This new fork takes a 15mm thru axle as well as new-mid mount rack attachments as well for those wanting to run a rack on their race bike in the off-season.
Overall, these new details add to the versatility of these new bikes, which are shipping now in prices ranging from $1,050 for a RLT9 frame, $2,000 for a 2 Star, 105 11-speed build and up to $5,500 for the Di2 Hydro 5 star build. The RLT9 Steel frame is a bit more, starting at $1,500 for a frame, $2,500 for a 2 Star, 105 11-speed build and up to $6,000 for the Di2 Hydro 5 star build.
