The ENVE Foundation AG28 Gravel Wheelset is designed for everything from bike packing to gravel racing.
“AG” stands for “Adventure Gravel” and this is the guiding principle behind the AG28. Part of ENVE’s new Foundation collection, the AG28 brings ENVE’s core technologies and trickle-down features from the ENVE G Series to riders seeking out adventure and ultimately looking to ride for the fun of it.
The AG28 is a 650b gravel wheel that can take tyres up to 57mm, making it ideal for adventure riders seeking the most comfortable ride. The rim shape was developed by ENVE that would smooth out the ride while still delivering a confidence-inspiring feel when it comes to handling.
The AG28 uses ENVE’s Wide Hookless Bead to minimise the chance of pinch flats. The wider leading edge of the rim disperses any impact from debris or potholes over a wider area. This leads to a 60+% improvement in pinch flat resistance as well as a 30+% improvement in impact strength.
Drilled spoke and valve holes mean the carbon fibres in the AG28 run through the wheel uninterrupted as opposed to being cut. This makes for a stronger, lighter rim structure. Another benefit is that ENVE can control the shape of the rim at the spoke/nipple interface with greater precision. ENVE rims feature a conical nipple seat that prevents premature spoke fatigue while also ensuring wheel-build reliability.
The AG28 uses the ENVE Foundation Road Hub, which uses ENVE’s core hub technologies. The hub shell uses simplified machining without compromising flange geometry and wheel build stiffness. The drive mechanism uses Instant Drive 360 technology and a 40t ratchet to deliver responsive engagement, minimal drag, and low maintenance performance. The bearings are premium full contact sealed NTN steel bearings. The Rotor attachment is center lock. The AG28 is also available with the Industry 1/1 hub.
The AG28 come with ENVE’s Lifetime Incident Protection. This means that if any mishaps lead to damaged wheels, ENVE will replace your AG’s to keep you rolling on your best set of hoops. The 5 Year Warranty protects you against any defects in materials and craftsmanship.
