Over a decade ago, ENVE (then EDGE) released the AM, a first-of-its-kind hand-built carbon mountain bike rim, strong enough to be ridden every day, on any trail.
The AM30 pays tribute to the past, while ushering in a new era of carbon rim performance developed on the back of 13 years crafting carbon for the demands of the modern all-mountain rider. With a modern rim shape, compliant-yet-snappy carbon laminate, tubeless optimization, anti-pinch flat technology, a 30mm internal width, lifetime guarantee, and a balanced all-mountain ride-tune, the AM30 is ready for anything you can throw at it.
ALL-MOUNTAIN RIDE TUNE
BUILT FOR SPEED, BUILT FOR COMFORT
With a unique shape and ride-tune, the AM30 balances compliance and vibration damping for all-day comfort, while retaining quick cornering, acceleration, and gravity-rated strength. Offset spoke holes balance spoke tensions to help preserve the wheels’ quickness and the spoke’s integrity – despite the rim’s additional compliance.
PINCH FLAT PROTECTED
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 tire. This means you can pick the tires, 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 our proven, patent-pending Wide Hookless Bead.
Run the tires you want

Save weight - go faster
EXTERNAL MOLDED SPOKE HOLES & EXTERNAL NIPPLES
RELIABILITY FIRST, SERVICEABILITY ALSO FIRST
Molded Spoke Holes (Patent #US 8,313,155) for more reliable wheel builds
Molded 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
We’ve expanded our patented process of molding spoke and valve stem holes to include external spoke holes and nipples. Because carbon fiber gets its strength from continuous fibers, we route the fibers around the holes without cutting them which increases the strength of each spoke hole and reduces the likelihood of frequent truing. Additionally, by molding the spoke and valve stem holes, our rims achieve a greater strength to weight ratio. Strong, light, and maintenance free.
USA MADE, PROTECTED FOR LIFE
It’s no secret that we at ENVE are proud of our U.S. based manufacturing capabilities. Like all our rims, the Foundation Collection and its AM30 are handmade and assembled in our Ogden, Utah based, state-of-the-art carbon wheel manufacturing facility.
