The ENVE 65 is a modern speed specialist in every way. Triathletes and road racers seeking PRs in their objectives against the clock will find their efforts rewarded by the ENVE 65.
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.
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 is the future and the future is now. The benefits of road tubeless are as follows:
The ENVE 65 is optimized for use with tubeless tires greater than 25mm wide.
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.
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.
Utilizing ENVE’s core hub technologies the Foundation Road Hub delivers a high performance, maintenance-free ride experience.
It’s no secret that ENVE is proud of their U.S. based manufacturing capabilities. Like all ENVE rims, the Foundation Collection and its ENVE 65 are handmade and assembled in the Ogden, Utah based, state-of-the-art carbon wheel manufacturing facility.
