This versatile wheelset is engineered to handle all the abuse that's associated with off-road riding, from ripping through endless single-track to sled racing enduros. It features a hard-wearing carbon fibre construction with a unique shape that's tuned for gravity-orientated riding. Its shape gives it exceptional balance and assists with vibration dampening when diving into corners and accelerating. This makes it a great all-rounder for tackling every aspect of the mountain.
Patented moulded spoke holes maximise this carbon wheelset's ability to support loads under tension by running continuous fibres around each spoke hole. Because the spoke holes are moulded and not drilled, the continuity of the fibres create a rim that is lighter without compromising strength.
Featuring ENVE’s Wide Hookless Bead technology, the AM30 disperses any impact on the trails, reducing the likelihood of pinch flats. The AM30 rim is paired with Industry Nine’s 1/1 hub set. The hub set is a fitting pairing to the Foundation Collection given its balance of high performance and function-first design. The dual phased-pawl drive mechanism and 45 tooth drive-ring means the 1/1 takes a no-nonsense approach in welcoming riders to Industry Nine.
The AM30 is ENVE’s flagship all-carbon mountain bike wheel for its Foundation Collection line up. The US made wheelset pays tribute to ENVE’s roots and the all-mountain durable ENVE AM30 helps bring ENVE’s industry-leading expertise to even more riders.
The Foundation AM30 Wheelset comes with ENVE’s leading Lifetime Incident Protection and 5 Year warranty. The 5 Year Warranty protects buyers from defects in material and workmanship. The Lifetime Incident Protection program protects owners from damage caused to their wheels while riding, crashing, or transporting their bikes, meaning you can ride your carbon wheels every day without worry.

No Inserts Required. The AM30 helps to prevent pinch flats and ruined rides with our patent-pending Wide Hookless Bead. The Wide Hookless Bead dissipates impact energy preventing the rim from slicing the tyre. This means you can pick the tyres, casings, and pressures you want to run, instead of letting the fear of flats dictate these important decisions for you. The AM30 helps to prevent pinch-flats and ruined rides with ENVE's proven, patent-pending Wide Hookless Bead.

EXTERNAL MOLDED SPOKE HOLES & EXTERNAL NIPPLES
• Moulded Spoke Holes (Patent #US 8,313,155) for more reliable wheel builds
• Moulded conical seats allow the nipples and spokes to articulate, preventing premature fatigue and failure
• Asymmetric spoke holes for more balanced spoke tensions
• External nipples for on-the-fly truing
ENVE expanded their patented process of moulding spoke and valve stem holes to include external spoke holes and nipples. Because carbon fibre gets its strength from continuous fibers, ENVE route the fibres around the holes without cutting them which increases the strength of each spoke hole and reduces the likelihood of frequent truing. Additionally, by moulding the spoke and valve stem holes, ENVE's rims achieve a greater strength to weight ratio. Strong, light, and maintenance-free.
