Brake Track wear presents itself as visible smooth patches or grooves on the brake track over time. It is not considered a defect in manufacturing, nor is it considered incidental damage. It is a result of wear and tear and a product being past its useful life. Many factors can contribute to how quickly this may happen including but not limited to the climate, terrain conditions, rider weight, and more. These factors cause brake track wear to vary depending on the user. Unfortunately, unlike a disc brake where you can replace your braking surface in the way of a new brake rotor, your braking surface (aka brake rotor) here is your rim. Therefore, once your brake track is worn out, you will need to replace your rims with your local ENVE dealer, or purchase a new wheelset.
Below are some examples of worn out brake tracks with our gen 1 smooth brake track and our gen 2 textured brake track:
