We are more than riders… We are risk takers, engineers and innovators, driven by our love of cycling. We are a dynamic collection of skilled individuals that create the world’s best carbon fiber products. Partnering with the prominent frame builders of our time and the world’s best athletes, we combine industry leading technology with world-class athlete feedback to provide our customers with the ultimate in lightness, stiffness and durability. Born from a desire for a better ride, we strive to deliver our consumers products without compromise.
ENVE has a strong background in composites design and engineering, specifically in the bicycle industry. We have been building, tinkering and breaking boundaries for years in an effort to satisfy our appetite for high performance bike parts.
We’re not afraid of introducing and investing in new design concepts, processes and technologies that enable us to offer the absolute best products on the market today (not to mention the things we’re working on for tomorrow) because these are the products that we want to ride.
Of major importance to us is that our wheels are proudly made in Ogden, Utah. Yes, we’re an American company committed to American design, engineering and manufacturing. You’ll often find our owners in the R&D lab tinkering on the next product; and that’s the epitome of how we all work together to reach a common goal.
We got our start making tubing and molded parts for the best custom frame builders – Parlee, Independent Fabrications, Calfee, Vanilla, Crumpton and Ruegamer – custom artisans who refuse to adopt the big box mentality.
With ENVE there’s no fluff. No flash. Just quality engineered products that are guaranteed to be the best you’ve ever ridden – a statement we take incredibly seriously.
Over the years, ENVE has had the opportunity to make some of the coolest parts. Here are just a few:
Santa Cruz Carbon Swing Arm
In 2011, the ENVE DH rim rocked the downhill world by being the first full-carbon downhill rim on the World Cup Circuit. In short, the first season was a success and Santa Cruz was impressed with the strength, durability, and performance that our carbon rims offered.
Santa Cruz had the idea to update the V-10 downhill mountain bike model with a carbon swing arm. Previous attempts to produce the challenging part overseas were unsuccessful. Santa Cruz contacted ENVE to find out if we were willing to take the challenge on. We said yes… While this project proved to be quite difficult, it forced us to broaden our horizons and explore new and unique manufacturing processes that have laid the groundwork for other projects we are currently working on. After a year of vigorous testing and prototyping with the Santa Cruz Syndicate, the V-10 Carbon Swing Arm was approved and turned over to Santa Cruz Bicycles for production. The V-10 Swing Arm has been ridden to numerous victories including two World Championships.
Vanilla Seat Post Topper
ENVE is founded upon the principle of providing products that fulfill an unmet or overlooked need. Sacha White of Vanilla Bicycles partnered with ENVE to create a custom seat mast topper complete with the official Vanilla seal molded into the piece. Using our single bolt seatpost design, and composites expertise, we succeeded in creating a functional mast topper that is also beautiful.
