All-function, US-made Foundation Collection — ENVE 45

Leading the industry in handmade carbon rims, ENVE brings their trusted craft to their all-new Foundation Collection.

We are pleased to welcome the ENVE 45, a versatile workhorse of a wheelset equally at home racing a fast four-corner crit and exploring the road-less-traveled — all at ENVE's most accessible price point ever.

With proven aerodynamics, tubeless compatibility, and pothole protection, the ENVE 45 is ready for wherever you want to take it.

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 decades of experience in developing some of the world's fastest wheels, Enve is uniquely qualified to deliver best-in-class aerodynamics to the Foundation series. Like the top-rated SES wheel family, the Foundation Collection and its ENVE 45 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 that 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 45 delivers performance advantages to riders of all abilities.

Pothole and impact protection.

Potholes and unforeseen impacts are part of life, but that doesn't mean they need to ruin your ride.

The ENVE 45 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.

Strong, light and maintenance-free spokes.

ENVE's patented process of molding spoke and valve stem holes result 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, the 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.

More Speed, Less Maintenance.

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

  • Perfect Preload ™
  • Maintenance-free premium full-contact sealed NTN steel bearings
  • ID360 40t drive mechanism delivers efficient and responsive power transmission

  • Roll Fast, Flat Less

    Tubeless is the future and the future is now.

  • Lower rolling resistance
  • Flat less, ride more: With a little sealant, you can eliminate nearly all flats that would have been caused by an intrusive thorn or debris.
  • Tubeless means you can run the pressure you want to maximize comfort, traction, and rolling efficiency.

  • Features:

  • Real-World Foundation Aero Technology
  • Wide Hookless Bead provides pothole protection
  • Tubeless Optimized for rolling fast and fewer flats
  • Lifetime Incident Protection and 5 Year Factory Warranty
  • Handmade in Utah
  • Note: ENVE Foundation wheelsets have strict tire compatibility guidelines. Please see product manual or ENVE's website for a list of compatible tires

    Amazing wheels for the price

    For $1600 it�s no wonder shops can�t keep these in stock. Noticeable aero benefits, great weight, fast acceleration, holds momentum. Incredible hub design for this price point, much better than the Zipp 3 pawl hubs on their 303s wheels, which I also considered. It is hard getting new tubeless tires on but with patience and technique it�s doable. They also hold pressure really well. I have historically been a Zipp guy, but I am so happy with these wheels. Made in the USA too!

    Great wheels

    Awesome wheels, great service from BTD. Wheels looks great, roll very well and the hubs engage quickly. These were my first set of tubeless wheels, and set up wasn't too difficult. Cleaned the inside and taped (I do wish they came pre taped) installed with Enve SES tires (25)

    These wheels were an upgrade to my aluminum stock ones. They roll fast and smooth. Very good choice.

    light and responsive

    Super light, swapped these out with the stock wheels that came on my cervelo aspero gravel bike. Found they were great for both road and some light gravel tires.
