Rent ENVE wheels at the Ironman World Championships
By Tom Ballard – 8 October 2019
ENVE wheels will now be available to rent at all Ironman and Ironman 70.3 triathlons in the US.
ENVE, the Official Wheel Partner of the Ironman World Championships has teamed up with Race Day Wheels to provide rentals as all US-based Ironman and Ironman 70.3 events including Kona this weekend.
The new programme gives triathletes racing on US soil the opportunity to try ENVE’s SES wheel range and experience the difference in both speed and stability that come from the brand’s handmade carbon rims thanks to expertly crafted rim shapes, curvature and widths.
Founded in 2005 and the official wheel rental partner for Ironman US events, Race Day Wheels will offer ENVE’s SES 5.6 and 7.8 wheelsets, both in disc and rim-brake models – the latter complete with ENVE’s exclusive moulded brake track for superior wet and dry performance. All rental wheels are set up with tubeless tyres to further reduce rolling resistance and protect against punctures.
The wheels are also covered by ENVE’s Lifetime Incident Protection programme, which offers ENVE owners free replacement wheels however they become damaged – and means that those renting wheels don’t need additional insurance.
“We’ve had ENVE wheel rentals on the mind for many years, but for a variety of reasons have never been able to bring the concept to life. Our partnership with Race Day Wheels allows us to move our vision from concept to reality, and as a result, more triathletes will now have access to ENVE’s SES technologies that deliver the best ride experience,” stated VP of Product and Consumer Experience for ENVE, Jake Pantone.
If you’re heading to Kona or any US Ironman or Ironman 70.3, you can reserve your wheelset of choice through racedaywheels.com, then meet up with the Race Day Wheels team at the Ironman expo for collection and professional installation.
