EXTERNAL MOLDED NIPPLES
By employing ENVE’s patented molded spoke hole technology and configuring it for external nipples, you can rest assured that you’re riding a wheel that’s been built for reliability and serviceability when you need it most.
WIDE HOOKLESS BEAD FOR PINCH FLAT RESISTANCE
The cringe-inducing impact between rock and rim is something we’ve all experienced when the desire to shred trail overwhelms our better judgment. Unless you’re running too much tire pressure, that impact will typically result in a pinch flatted tire.
The AG25 and AG28 feature our patent pending wide hookless bead technology which has proven to shrug off pinch flats to the tune of a 60% improvement over a traditionally more narrow hookless bead.
BUILT TO SHRUG OFF YOUR BAD IDEAS
So, you’ve decided to descend that mountain bike trail on your gravel rig. Or maybe you didn’t have a choice, it was the only way to get from point A to point B. No worries, we encourage it. This is why we’ve designed and tested the Foundation AG wheels using our proven M Series impact testing protocol. The result is a wheel that inspires confidence when you need it the most, even when you aren’t looking for it.
BIG TIRES FOR BIG RIDES
Wheel performance is only as good as the tires and setup you employ for your next adventure.
The AG25 and AG28 each feature an inner rim width optimized to accommodate the latest trends in high-volume tubeless tires.
