Not just here for a fast time - it’s here for a good time. As a one-wheelset quiver for park laps, lunch laps, and backcountry epics, the durable-yet-comfortable ride tune of the Foundation Collection’s AM30 makes it the perfect fit for your 29” or 27.5” all-mountain ride.
The All-New AM30 Any Trail , Any Time
Built for Speed;
Built for Comfort.
NEW RIM SHAPE, NEW RIDE FEEL
As the experts in crafting and tuning carbon, ENVE carbon wheels have always been fast: they accelerate quickly, blast out of corners, and instill confidence. The AM30 with its unique rim shape and tuned carbon construction retains this DNA by balancing dynamic attributes like stability, compliance, and impact toughness when the going gets rowdy.
FOR WHEN THE “STRONGEST WHEEL ON THE MARKET” ISN’T
No Inserts Required
Wide hookless bead technology
- RUN THE TIRES YOU WANT
- RUN THE PRESSURES YOU WANT
- SAVE WEIGHT - GO FASTER
- THE PATENT PENDING WIDE HOOKLESS BEAD IS PROVEN TO REDUCE PINCH-FLATS AND RUINED RIDES
RELIABILITY FIRST, SERVICEABILITY ALSO FIRST
- Molded Spoke Holes (Patent #US 8,313,155) for more reliable wheel builds
- Molded conical seats allow the nipples and spokes to articulate, preventing premature fatigue and failure
- External nipples for on-the-fly truing
- Asymmetric spoke holes for balanced spoke tensions
Our patented process of molding spoke and valve stem holes results in rims that are stronger and lighter. Because carbon fiber gets its strength from continuous fibers, ENVE routes the fibers around the holes without cutting them which increases the strength of each spoke hole and reduces the likelihood of frequent truing. Strong, light, and maintenance free.
THE FOUNDATION COLLECTION
THE MISSION OF THE FOUNDATION COLLECTION IS TO DELIVER A BEST-IN-CLASS RIDE EXPERIENCE THROUGH CRAFTED CARBON AND CORE ENVE TECHNOLOGIES.
When ENVE moved into its new state-of-the-art carbon manufacturing and testing facility, a major milestone towards becoming the carbon wheel manufacturing powerhouse was realized. Over three years later, the additional learnings, capacity, and efficiency this new facility has delivered has allowed us to create the Foundation Collection, a completely new wheel line that holds true to ENVE’s mission of creating a better rider experience for rider’s outside the highest echelon of the wheel aftermarket.
