ENVE Foundation AM30 29″ Carbon Wheelset - i9 - Centerlock - FW: 15x110mm | RW: 12x148mm - Shimano HG


The meaning of the term “All-Mountain Bike” is changing every day. To some it’s a sled racing enduros on the weekends, while to others it’s a hardtail ripping through endless singletrack. No matter how you define it, the AM30 is a best-in-class wheel for all over the mountain.

Features & Benefits of the AM30 Foundation wheels:

Balanced All-Mountain Ride-Tune - Built for Speed, Built for Comfort

With a unique shape and ride-tune, the AM30 balances compliance and vibration damping for all-day comfort, while retaining quick cornering, acceleration, and gravity-rated strength. Offset spoke holes balance spoke tensions to help preserve the wheels’ quickness and the spoke’s integrity – despite the rim’s additional compliance.

Pinch-Flat Protected - No Inserts Required

The AM30 helps to prevent pinch flats and ruined rides with ENVE's patent-pending Wide Hookless Bead.

The Wide Hookless Bead dissipates impact energy preventing the rim from slicing the tire. This means you can pick the tires, casings, and pressures you want to run, instead of letting the fear of flats dictate these important decisions for you. The AM30 helps to prevent pinch-flats and ruined rides with their proven, patent-pending Wide Hookless Bead.



External Molded Spoke Holes & External Nipples - 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
  • Asymmetric spoke holes for more balanced spoke tensions
  • External nipples for on-the-fly truing

ENVE has expanded their patented process of molding spoke and valve stem holes to include external spoke holes and nipples. Because carbon fiber gets its strength from continuous fibers, they route the fibers around the holes without cutting them which increases the strength of each spoke hole and reduces the likelihood of frequent truing. Additionally, by molding the spoke and valve stem holes, the rims achieve a greater strength to weight ratio. Strong, light, and maintenance free.


USA Made, Protected for Life

It’s no secret that ENVE is proud of their U.S. based manufacturing capabilities. Like all ENVE rims, the Foundation Collection and its AM30 are handmade and assembled in their Ogden, Utah based, state-of-the-art carbon wheel manufacturing facility.
