    650b Carbon rim choices

    Iím deciding on which rim to use for a 650b wheelset on my gravel rig.
    The ENVE G27 https://www.enve.com/en/products/g27/
    Are obviously top on my list lím not sure if they sell as a rim only.
    The i27mm #widerisbetter rim can easily fit lots of wider and more aggressive tires, so thatís a big plus.
    The STANS Arch cb7 https://www.notubes.com/arch-cb7-rim Is another one that clicks the boxes. The i26mm rim is combined with the sleek low profile design and their BST that really holds tubeless tires well.
    Iíve never built up a carbon rim wheel set for my gravel bikes because I like the suppleness that alloy rims provide when paired with 3x laced thin db spokes and high volume tires on i24mm rims. But since Iím interested in more aggressive and wider tires for more mixed to dirt only riding, Iím interested in wider carbon rims.
    Let me know what rims you guys like?

    Pretty sure the Enve
    Gravel is wheel set only but in any case I didn't consider them due to cost I went with these https://www.lightbicycle.com/XC-650B...ompatible.html

    Running with 2.25 rubber liking them a lot

    Inner i22mm width, too narrow, i26 or wider rims is what Iím after.
