ENVE offers the SES 2.3 as front and rear options, this is the rear wheel. Make sure to purchase both if you are seeking a pair of wheels.
The ideal choice for climbers who prioritize peak performance both uphill and downhill is the new SES 2.3. Weighing in at 1222 grams, these wheels stand in a class of their own, offering a tangible advantage in hilly landscapes with their lightweight construction and confidence-inspiring handling.
Contemporary alpinists adhere to the 'Fast and Light' philosophy, opting for gear that doesn't burden them unnecessarily as they ascend quickly and maintain confidence on the descent. The SES 2.3 aligns with this ethos, aiming to efficiently scale mountains while enhancing enjoyment and stability during the descent. It streamlines from the SES 3.4, retaining the proven Smart ENVE System design with dissimilar front and rear rim depths, effectively managing airflow variations from the front to the back of the bike.
With a front depth of 28mm and a rear depth of 32mm, the SES 2.3 ensures stability in crosswinds and enhances aerodynamic efficiency on flat terrain between climbs. Leveraging hookless bead tubeless technology, engineers reduced weight, fine-tuned comfort, maintained strength, and established a precise tubeless interface. This wheelset exclusively supports tubeless and disc brakes. Whether tackling the towering ascents of Grand Tours or navigating the undulating landscapes at your doorstep, the SES 2.3 stands as the epitome of speed.
At the heart of the SES and G Series wheels lies the ENVE Premium Straight Pull hub, a testament to ENVE's commitment to innovation and quality. This hub features oversized steel ratchets positioned over the bearings, reducing axle and bearing stress and ensuring positive engagement. The INNERDRIVE™ Premium hub is notable for its weight savings of 60 grams over previous models, four engagement options (40t, 60t, 80t, 100t), and the use of consistent spoke lengths for ease of maintenance. The hub's anti-twist spoke hole and silent spoke crossings eliminate spoke creak and ensure a flawless build and ride quality.
ENVE's approach revolves around harnessing the capabilities of carbon fiber, and the SES 2.3 exemplifies this philosophy. Through the strategic use of continuously running fibers across the rim, tapered laminates, and the elimination of surplus material, the SES 2.3 achieves a remarkable feat in both weight reduction and advanced composites engineering. Furthermore, the layering of fibers in specific orientations is instrumental in meeting zone-specific performance criteria such as impact toughness, stiffness, and tire retention.Return to Top
