Cody’s Enve 65 + Alchemy ORC rear wheel – 842 grams!

Cody recently purchased two new Cervélo race bikes: an R3 for road racing and a P2 for Time Trials. When Cody bought these two bikes, the R3 came with Easton EC90SL 38mm carbon clinchers. The P2 came with basic Fulcrum wheels knowing he’d be finding some aero carbon wheels before the race season begins.

It’s often windy where he lives, so Cody didn’t want a very deep rim.  He opted for this custom built 65 mm Enve Composites carbon clincher rim laced using Sapim CX-Ray spokes to a black Alchemy ORC 24 hole hub. Standard two-cross lacing both sides, using Pillar Internal nipples.  This wheel is quite light for a deep dish clincher – at just 842 grams!

Cody hopes to win the TT and maybe take the overall in an upcoming stage race  this spring.
