I'm new here but I'm hoping to get some insight from folks on a big decision I'm making. I'm finally breaking down and getting a power meter. My buddy has been bugging me to do it for a few years now and I've decided I want to take that next step to improve in my riding. So I'm getting a powertap put in a new set of Enve wheels. I current ride the Enve 65 tubular model and I love them...most of the time. The braking is really good, even in wet descents but the bigger issue I have with them is their stability on descents basically 9 percent or higher. They are not very stable if there is the slightest crosswind. If it's a big one, then forget it, I'm all over the road. Since I'm married with two small children, I'd like to not die on one of my weekend rides.
Any way, I love the stiffness of the wheels and on the flats and rolling terrain they're exceptional. I've read everywhere that Enve has really corrected the crosswind issue for descending on the 6.7s while maintaining the stiffness of the current wheelset I love so much. But the last thing I want to do is drop some major coin on a new wheelset and have the same issue. But again I love the aero advantage and feeling on the 65s I own. Does anyone have experience with both? I don't mind a little push on the descents. I rode the Zipp 404 this past weekend to test them out and while they were incredible on the descents, then didn't have Enve's stiffness and incredible feeling of speed on the flats (I felt like I was struggling to get them up to speed). I'm really leaning towards the 6.7 since the claim is that they truly fixed the descending issue but I'd rather hear that from unbiased riders rather than the company who makes the wheel.
Thanks in advance. This forum is great.
