When asked about the material used for the DH bar, Schiers adds, “Carbon on dirt still presents a formidable challenge to overcome, but as with all of the products we make, we expect that durability in addition to ride quality is a given.”

On what is in store for Enve in the years to come, Schiers further says, “2010…
