Tire Compatibility
What's Included

From ENVE’s core technologies we bring to you the ENVE 65, with proven best-in-class aerodynamics, and confidence inspiring cross-wind stability to assist you in your hardest efforts. Additionally, the ENVE 65 features tubeless compatibility, pot-hole protection, and like all ENVE wheels, the ENVE 65 is handmade in Ogden, Utah. The ENVE 65 is part of the all-function,  easy-on-the-wallet Foundation Collection.

Foundation Aero Technology

Wind-Tunnel Tested, Real-World Proven

Aerodynamics are an unalienable right for road cyclists and triathletes that allows for greater efficiency and confidence inspiring handling, regardless of wind conditions. With more than a decade’s experience in developing some of the world’s fastest wheels, we are uniquely qualified to deliver best-in-class aerodynamics to the Foundation customer.

Like our SES wheel family, the Foundation Collection and its ENVE 65 were tested and developed at the Mercedes Benz Formula One wind-tunnel to deliver best-in-class real world aero performance. Unlike other wheel brands who only test isolated wheels at elite speeds of 30mph/48kph, ENVE develops and tests wheels in-frame at multiple speeds ranging from 20mph/32kph to 30mph/48kph. This testing, while more time consuming and expensive, ensures that the ENVE 65 delivers performance advantages to riders of all abilities.

Tubeless for the Win

Roll Fast, Flat Less

Tubeless is the future and the future is now. The benefits of road tubeless are as follows:

• Lower rolling resistance – By eliminating the inner-tube, the friction between tire and tube is also eliminated, allowing the tire roll, flex, and conform to the road with greater efficiency.

• Flat less, ride more – Flat tires are a buzz-kill. With a little sealant you can eliminate nearly all flats that would have been caused by an intrusive thorn or piece of debris.

• Run the Best Pressure – Tubeless means you can run the pressure you want to maximize comfort, traction, and rolling efficiency. (Visit our tire pressure page to dial in your best tire pressure)

• Hookless/Straight-Sidewall Design -Tubeless performance depends on the tire maintaining a light press-fit with the rim on the bead seat diameter. ENVE chooses a hookless tubeless rim profile as it allows the rim’s critical tolerance at the bead seat diameter to be both consistent and accurate. In short, hookless is chosen to deliver a more safe, reliable, and ultimately proper tire fitment.

The ENVE 65 is optimized for use with tubeless tires greater than 25mm wide. Please refer to our Tire Compatibility page to see what tires are approved/recommended for use with the ENVE 65.

 

Wide Hookless Bead

Pot-Hole and Impact Protection

Potholes and unforeseen impacts are part of life, but that doesn’t mean they need to ruin your ride. The ENVE 65 features ENVE’s patent pending Wide Hookless Bead which is a design element at the leading edge of the rim that dissipates impact energy and reduces the likelihood of pinch flatting your tubed or tubeless tire.

Molded Spoke Hole Patent #US 8,313,155

ENVE’s 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 hole without cutting them, increasing the strength of each spoke hole. This technique pays large dividends in the final product by allowing for a lighter spoke face while improving rim strength. Because of this process, our spoke holes are capable of maintaining higher spoke tensions, greatly reducing the risk of spoke pull-through and the need to constantly true your wheels. Strong, light and maintenance free.

ENVE Foundation Road Hub

More Speed, Less Maintenance

Utilizing ENVE’s core hub technologies the Foundation Road Hub delivers a high performance, maintenance-free ride experience.

• Flange spacing and hub shell geometry designed to maximize performance metrics such as wheel and drive stiffness

USA Made, Protected for Life

It’s no secret that we at ENVE are proud of our U.S. based manufacturing capabilities.  Like all our rims, the Foundation Collection and its ENVE 65 are handmade and assembled in our Ogden, Utah based, state-of-the-art carbon wheel manufacturing facility. The ENVE 65 is covered under ENVE’s Lifetime Incident Protection program and 5 Year Factory Warranty.

      Yes, they come with tubeless tape that is intended to be used as the rim strip for tubed setups.

    What is the maximum tire pressure the Foundation 45 & 65 can take? Also, can I use tubes for these with a regular tire?

      Please refer to our Tire Pressure Recommendation page for optimal psi. Yes, you can run tubes as long as the tire is a tubeless tire approved on our Tire Compatibility page.

    Superb wheelset at an awesome price point!

    How many hours/week do you ride? 6-15

    What is your age bracket? 18-25

    I was super exited to finally be able to get ahold of some Enve wheels at a competitive price. While these are a more “budget” wheelset, they perform extremely well. I opted to try Schwalbe’s Pro One Tubeless tires on these wheels and they seated with minimal hassle. At 80 psi, the 25c tire measures up to 27.4mm at the widest point. The extra volume makes for a nicer ride and an areo dynamic setup. On the road, the wheels roll extremely fast. Between the tubeless tires and carbon wheels, they offer some additional vertical compliance/ comfort, which makes for a smoother ride. These wheels also have very little side to side flex, which allows you to pick your line and corner hard without any unpredictable vagueness or flex that other wheels have. Overall, this is a great wheel set and to top everything off, they are made in the USA!
