Technical Service Bulletin from ENVE on tubeless road tire compatibility with ENVE Road / Gravel and XC Rims:
"To guarantee a safe and enjoyable rider experience with the SES 4.5AR,M50, M525, G23, and G27 it is important that customers select and ride tires that we have tested and identified as reliable and safe to ride.
In both lab and field testing, some tires have failed to remain securely mounted on the SES 4.5AR, M50, M525, G23, and G27 hookless bead designed rims. At standard operating pressures of <80psi/5.5bar, some tires are susceptible to “blow-off which is defined by the tire bead stretching off the rim.

When looking for a low-profile aero rim that's tubeless compatible, light-weight, and made-in-USA, there aren't a whole lot of options, but luckily Velocity USA has a very good one: the Aileron. That's the rim that's featured on this week's Wheel Build of the Week, so check it out!
