In ENVE's own words here's the detail on the AM30:
MOLDED SPOKE AND VALVE-STEM HOLES
We’ve been molding spoke holes into our rims since day one. Molding vs. drilling the spoke hole protects the fibers from being cut and allows fibers to remain intact for a lighter, stronger rim structure. Another benefit is that we can control the shape of the rim at the spoke/nipple interface. ENVE rims feature a conical nipple seat that prevents premature spoke fatigue and failure while also ensuring wheel-build reliability. This is a foundational technology because our customer’s wheels require very little spoke tension maintenance while also experiencing fewer broken spokes.
ANTI-PINCH FLAT PROTECTION
ENVE is the only wheel brand with anti-pinch flat protection that is built into our rims. This means no inserts are required, fewer tires will be destroyed, and more time will be spent riding.Every wheel in the Foundation Collection has a Wide Hookless Bead (Patent Pending).
Tubeless improves performance, period. Each Foundation wheel model features a hookless, straight sidewall design which ensures; Precise bead seat diameters, Improved tire-to-rim interface, Greater strength and reliability.
CRAFTED CARBON –BY THE CARBON EXPERTS
At ENVE, we have been honing the craft of carbon rim design and manufacturing for nearly 15 years. With our facility and expertise, we are able to prototype and test more rim concepts and designs than anyone else in the industry. We are the carbon rim experts. Each wheel is purpose-built to be best in class, delivering the ideal balance between weight savings, stiffness, and impact toughness.
WARRANTY AND LIFETIME INCIDENT PROTECTION
ENVE products are designed for performance and longevity. This is priority number one. When we fail to deliver on this expectation, or a customer exceeds the product’s limits (riding or otherwise), we want them to know that ENVE has their back. Foundation wheels are covered by our Lifetime Incident Protection and 5 Year Factory Warranty
LIFETIME INCIDENT PROTECTION. This protects the original owner from incidents that the rider is responsible for such as impact damage, crashes, and other unlucky mishaps.
5 YEAR WARRANTY. This protects ENVE customers from deficiencies in materials and/or workmanship.
