ENVE Composites warranties products for five years

OGDEN, UT (BRAIN) Thursday April 5 2012 10:32 AM MT—ENVE is adopting a five-year warranty program for its rims and components. The warranty complements the company's crash replacement policy.

The company said it is trying to send consumers the message that its rims do not need to be reserved for special occasions.

"After researching our return rate with testing and production, it only made sense for us to show consumers how much we believe in and can stand behind our products," said Ronnie Points, ENVE’s national sales manager.

ENVE’s new program protects the original purchaser of any ENVE rim or component from defect in materials or workmanship for the period of five years from the date of purchase with proof of purchase. ENVE requires that customers register their ENVE product at the time of purchase using ENVE’s online registration form.
