ENVE Composites has grown into one of the cycling world’s premier parts brands over the past few years, thanks in large part to keep the bulk of their carbon fiber production in-house in Ogden, Utah. The company (formerly known as Edge Composites) moved into its current space in the beginning of 2011, and its complete with a wheel production facility, machine shop and test lab. ENVE’s founder, Jason Schiers, sums up his company’s mission best: “Our brand is all about why we all started riding bikes in the first place, because it’s fun. That’s the one commonality of all disciplines of cycling, that we all had the same feeling of getting onto a bike and thinking, ‘This is awesome!'” ENVE invited Road Bike Action on a private tour of its facility, and we came away thoroughly impressed with the company’s operation.
