ENVE Composites' 1.45 carbon clincher is a lightweight, wind tunnel proven, and race ready rim. A wheelset built with the reasonably deep section 1.45 rims is suitable for almost any riding condition, whether the road goes up or down, whether the wind tosses you around or flies with you at your back. For the independently self-supported racer or discerning cyclist, the 1.45 is an excellent choice for a multi-purpose wheelset.
Using a proprietary molding process in which the spoke holes are molded and not drilled, Enve has created a spoke interface that permits the use of higher spoke tensions without compromising the integrity of the rim. And not only does the spoke interface allow for higher tension, it is designed to enhance the durability of the wheel as a whole by limiting spoke fatigue. The result is a low maintenance, long lasting, and highly durable wheel. Other features of Enve's unique molding process include an elevated brake surface for optimized braking performance and longer rim life, and impact resistant sidewall construction for overall durability.
Each 1.45 rim includes an Enve 39 mm valve extender, internal Enve brass nipples , and a pair of Enve's proprietary brake pads - please indicate upon purchase whether Shimano or Campagnolo style pads are required.
Available exclusively through Fair Wheel Bikes - custom colored Enve decals! To order your custom decal set, simply purchase a decal upgrade for each rim purchased. Decals are not available separate from rim purchases. Rims are shipped with decals applied. Standard rims include the stock Enve decal: silver outline, white logo.

We're happy to provide you with a selection of custom ENVE Decals exlusively through Fairwheel Bikes. The decals can be ordered separately, with a rim or as a free upgrade with a hand built wheel set. Each set comes with six decals, enough for one wheel.
