Find Your PR with the all-function, handmade — ENVE 65
Leading the industry in handmade carbon rims, ENVE brings their trusted craft to the all-new Foundation Collection.
Alongside the ENVE 45, we welcome the ENVE 65, with proven best-in-class aerodynamics, and confidence-inspiring crosswind stability to assist you in your hardest efforts. Additionally, the ENVE 65 features tubeless compatibility, pothole protection, and like all ENVE wheels, the ENVE 65 is made by hand in Ogden, Utah. The ENVE 65 is part of the all-function, easy-on-the-wallet Foundation Collection.
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 decade of experience in developing some of the world's fastest wheels, ENVE is uniquely qualified to deliver best-in-class aerodynamics to the Foundation rider.
Like the 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.
Roll Fast, Flat Less
Tubeless is the future and the future is now. The benefits of road tubeless are as follows:
Lower rolling resistance - By removing the inner-tube, the friction between tire and tube is eliminated, allowing the tire to 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 correct pressure - Tubeless means you can run the pressure you want to maximize comfort, traction, and rolling efficiency.
Hookless/straight-sidewall design - Tubeless performance depends on the tire maintaining alight 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 45 & 65 are 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.
More Speed, Less Maintenance.
Utilizing ENVE's core hub technologies the Foundation Road Hub delivers a high-performance, maintenance-free ride experience.
- Flange spacing and hub shell geometry designed to maximize performance metrics such as wheel and drive stiffness
- Maintenance-free premium full-contact sealed NTN steel bearings
- ID360 40t drive mechanism delivers efficient and responsive power transmission

Great value for Enve reliability and performance
I have 3 other sets of Enve wheels and wanted a set of deeper wheels for long rides, these became available and they were exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price. I've taken them on a half dozen century rides and a couple double metrics and they perform very well. They are manageable in fairly substantial cross winds although they wouldn't be my wheelset of choice in high winds of course. All tubeless wheels are a bit more challenging to mount tires on, however with some soapy water on the tire bead and rim I was able to mount Schwalbe Pro one tires on these by hand without too much effort. I was also able to get them to seat first time with a Joe Blow booster pump. I don't think I could have got them seated with a non-booster style pump. They are definitely tighter than my Enve 4.5s (not tubeless) with Continental 4000s II tires. I was also able to break the bead and by hand without too much difficulty when I realized I had the front mounted backwards and had to flip it, so hopefully a roadside repair where sealant and tire plugs won't fix a big hole forcing the use of a tube and/or boot will be possible. The center channel is deep enough regular tire tools will get the tire off the rim without huge effort for tire changes once they are off the beads. For their depth, they are not very heavy and mine were spot on at the Enve Claimed weight with Enve hubs. The hubs seem nice, not too noisy, quieter than my DT 240 hubs which need lube on the engagement parts frequently to keep them reasonably quite. Swapping wheels with the DT240 hub Enve 3.4s requires no movement of the calipers or adjustment to the rear DR for proper alignment, so using them as an alternate set is really simple, takes a few minutes and done. You will need to have the newer disc lockrings (Shimano M8010) and a tool to torque them if you don't already have them as the old style won't give enough engagement with a standard Shimano cassette lockring tool to tighten the discs to 40nm. No Problems with trueing etc- I've never had any issues on my other Enve wheel and don't expect issues with these. Great lifetime warranty if I do have any problems.
