Built upon over a decade of carbon wheel crafting experience, the all new Enve Foundation 45 brings their knowledge and technology to the masses. Blended aero properties, tubeless compatibility, and pinch flat protection for the rider looking to test the waters on carbon wheel performance. ENVE Worthy, and priced to provide the foundation for confident riding through performance crafted carbon in the US.
Like all Enve rims, the Foundation Collection and its ENVE 45 are handmade and assembled in their Ogden, Utah based, state-of-the-art carbon wheel manufacturing facility. The ENVE 45 is covered under Enve´s Lifetime Incident Protection Program and 5 Year Factory Warranty.
These road disc wheels feature the latest in hookless rim technology to delivery a tubeless experience that is aerodynamically optimised for 25-28c.
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 ENVE's Tire Compatibility page to see what tires are approved/recommended for use with the ENVE Foundation 45.
