ENVE Bike Wheels
Enve wheels are popular with professional bike racers and casual riders alike. All the wheels are made from carbon fibre. In fact, Enve has established a reputation as a specialist in the manufacture of bike components from carbon fibre. It makes other components as well, but the Enve wheels range is its flagship. Options are available for road, mountain bike, and cyclocross styles of riding, all of which feature industry-leading technology.

ENVE Bike Wheels
Enve is a bike component manufacturer that specializes in using carbon fiber. It started off making tubes for custom frames but today it is best known for its range of carbon wheels. It also makes handle bars, stems, seat posts, forks, and hubs.
The company was founded in 2007 and is based in Utah in the US. It’s owned by Amer Sports, the same company that owns cycling brand Mavic.
Enve has grown considerably since it first started, and regularly experiences situations where its demand outstrips supply. This is because of the focus on pushing carbon fiber wheel technology to its limits to create a range of wheels suitable for any condition, any terrain, and any style of riding.
This isn't just about high performance wheels designed for professional racers, though. Enve does make those, and many professional teams and riders use its wheels. The company also makes good quality but affordable wheels designed for every day riding. That means combining strength, lightweight construction, stiffness, efficiency, and comfort.
The company has developed a number of innovations in wheel design, particularly in regard to making wheels stronger. A good example is Enve's molded holes for spokes and valves. Other wheel manufacturers create the carbon fiber rim and then cut holes in it for spokes and valves to come through. These holes cut through the individual carbon fibers, reducing the rims strength. Enve takes a different approach by molding the carbon fibers to create the hole. There is no cutting involved, the individual carbon fibers are not broken, and the wheel is stronger as a result.
You’ll find a wide range of Enve wheels available on Bike Exchange, including the latest models.
