E*THIRTEEN LG1 Race All-Terrain 29in Tire
Variety is the spice of life, and if you’re like us, that saying doesn’t only apply to our post-ride snacks. We’re happiest when trail days offer a mix of different conditions, terrain, and adventure. Sometimes its XC hot laps, gravity shuttles, or backcountry trail days where we’re pushing to ascend higher than we ever have before. The trick is to find equipment that’s ready to take on a mix, too. E*Thirteen’s LG1 Race All-Terrain 29in Tire makes a strong argument for itself, and while we won’t try to tell you it’s built for XC and DH at the same time, we will say it plays a pretty great role at covering just about everything.

ENVE M730 29in Boost Wheelset
ENVE’s designers utilize their Smart system to create tough, stable wheels for all riding conditions. Using a patented process of molding in-spoke holes, valve stem holes, and nipple seats they earn ENVE’s reputation for incredible strength-to-weight ratios. ENVE’s carbon fiber is meticulously laid around each hole to maintain continuous fiber integrity, resulting in increased rim rigidity while keeping weight lower at the spoke face. When you lace this system up to a hub the result is a system that facilitates more uniform, and higher spoke tension than standard molding. In addition to their meticulous layup, ENVE uses a process that removes the inner bladder from the carbon fiber molding, which results in lower weight compared to other composite manufacturers who leave the rim-molding inner bladder inside the rim when the wheel is complete. The tedious process of removing the bladder adds expense but lands you with a lighter rim with superior weight distribution and perfect tension.
