Made by Xentis in Austria.
As I understand there were financial issues and I think they are now owned by Tune.
Great wheels, and the Tune hubs really nice of course.
I've stil got the 42 mm wheels but they get love and care.
As you say the more expensive wheels are great but it's a pain as they are usually non-repairable and in the case of the Lightweights have to be shipped back to Germany, not an overnight service.
I was there this year (2012), not too hot though which was nice.. it's a big day out.
Zipp say they haven't had any claims with their wheels.
It's more a generic issue because of the nature of carbon clincher construction techniques, they are getting better though.
Unfortunately disc brakes on road bikes, eg new Colnago will negate all this effort. Probably the future IMHO.

I've been toying with the idea of buying either the 3.4 SES or the 303 firecrests for a few months now, unfortunatley i don't have the option for both pairs, i currently run r-sys sl's and some basic roval sl45's which are nice enough.
I'm still awaiting some form of an update after THREE pages we're still not there...
Confirm SES or original ENVE wheels
Update on where the warranty side of things is going
That would be MOST helpful. Cheers!
I'm asking my friend who isn't a technical wizz on the subject so i'm passing on what i get told.
as for "the update" as i posted 2 or 3 posts ago he was picking up his warranty replacement today as he mentioned to me. so it sounds like Enve have excellent customer service.
i am yet to hear from him since/if he picked them up.
My friend isn't up to speed on tech info so I've only been able to pass on info. I need to say when i said the rims were 23mm wide i now need to clarify that they were of the new wider rim technology. 3.4 rim technology appears to fall in to the wide rim technology as stated on their site so i am sticking with what he said that they are the 3.4 model as they are all black with black enve deals and appear to have the rim depth of around the 40mm that is also stated on the site.
Once again apologies for being vague and lacking info but i can only pass on what i'm told. I haven't seen my friend in a while, his bike included. He is not a tech head so info isn't great.
