In the short history of Enve Composites, their constant innovation has taken them from a behind-the-scenes carbon manufacturer to a leader in many component categories. Although they're a relatively new company, their familiarity with all aspects of the manufacturing process, from tooling and machining to design and production, has resulted in some cutting-edge fabrication methods. Add a healthy passion for cycling and the result is a growing line of acclaimed components that have quickly risen to the top of many cyclists' wish lists.
Specifically, their rims feature molded spoke holes which require no removal of structurally important carbon. Retaining necessary material allows the wheel to be built with higher spoke tension for a stronger and stiffer wheel. This isn't a negligible improvement, either. Real-world "testing" on the bikes of World Champion Steve Peat and his Santa Cruz—Syndicate teammates confirms that the wheels not only survive, but offer an advantage in run after run of world cup downhill racing.
The story's the same with their road rims. Triathletes love Enve's deep-section carbon clinchers, while gram-counting climbers are building up sub 1,000-gram wheelsets to cheat the laws of gravity. And pro Jonathan Page has been using their featherweight 2.25 rim in European cyclocross races and finds the specially machined braking surface super advantageous.
Now, Enve is pushing wheel design even further with the introduction of their Smart Enve Wheel System. Input from genius aerodynamicist Simon Smart combined with countless hours of wind-tunnel testing, prototyping, strength testing and feedback from professional riders has resulted in their fastest wheelset to date.
Heaps of data backs up the fact that the Smart Enve System is extremely aerodynamic on road and tri bikes from all manufacturers. Out on the road, Enve took into consideration varying wind conditions and made these wheels ultra stable in crosswinds for predictable handling, too.
You may have seen Enve's components on many custom-built bikes. These boutique builders know that choosing to finish their handcrafted creations with an Enve product enhances the ride and increases the appeal of their bike. Plus, from start to finish, every Enve product is made in Ogden, Utah.
Come by and see how you can benefit from the low weight, outstanding ride quality, stunning looks and superior durability of all of Enve's components—forks, handlebars, rims, seatposts, stems, wheels and more!
