Enve Composites

Based in Ogden, UT, ENVE Composites designs and manufactures the best bicycle wheels in the world. ENVE Composites’ patented process of molding in spoke holes is just one example of their many proprietary technologies. Because carbon fiber gets its strength from continuous, unbroken fibers, ENVE routes the fibers around the hole which increases the strength of each spoke hole. This technique pays large dividends in the final product by allowing for a lighter spoke face in the rim without compromising strength. Because of this process, ENVE’s spoke holes are capable of resisting higher spoke tensions which greatly reduces the risk of spoke pull-through during wheel-build and on the road. In 2010, ENVE won a TCG grant from USTAR that prevented 10 jobs from being moved overseas. Since then, they have continued to use their technology to innovate the bicycle wheel and component industries.
