Wheels Road Disc Wheels - Carbon

When you require a wheelset that offers the best balance of aerodynamic speed, low weight, incredible stability and control in crosswinds as well as on a bumpy road, Enve has the ideal choice- the SES 4.5 New for 2022, Enve's engineers have taken all the best features of the SES 4.5 AR, such as the high-volume tire optimized rim design and shaping that gives it class-leading aerodynamics and stability, and updated it to include anti pinch-flat technology along with a lighter more refined laminate to reduce weight and improve the ride feel. The re-design gives the new SES 4.5 greater versatility through pinch-flat resistance and a reduction in weight with zero compromises to speed.

Falling between the true hilly, allroad-racing optimized SES 3.4, and the pure sprint stage road ace ready SES 6.7 the SES 4.5 is a clear choice for the rider seeking a the one wheel to rule them for any terrain, on any road. With an internal width of 25mm, the confidence in handling that comes with the rim and tire volume makes it a game-changer on technical descents and rough pavement. Like the rest of the SES wheel line, the SES 4.5 has been optimized for road tubeless performance and features a hookless bead design that allows for the precise rim dimensions required to achieve the best tubeless performance. To further tubeless tire and rim reliability, the full carbon wheelset features Enve’s patent-pending Wide Hookless Bead, which is a design element at the leading edge of the rim that provides a surface that, when impacted, will reduce the likelihood of pinch flatting a tubeless tire.

The new SES 4.5 disc front and rear specific rims are lighter, stronger, and have tested faster than the previous versions, with less rolling resistance depending on tire/pressure variables. The tubeless ready rim bed adds strength closer to the outer rim surface, and Enve employs the Wide Hookless bead profile, tire-bed bead seat lock system that make compatible tubeless tires work so well. The straight, short bed adds incredible stiffness and tubeless ready tire retention. You can use a tube or not with a tubeless tire, but Enve says you cannot run standard clincher tires on these rims. Enve supplies tubeless rim tapes and valves to seal the deal, if you will. Enve calls 80 psi the max pressure allowed for 29mm Width as Measured tires, so choose your tire appropriately for your needs.

Enve's Alloy Road Disc Hubset hubs feature the Perfect PreloadTM waved-washer system, which means no more hub slop, frustrating adjustments, or prematurely worn bearings. Stainless steel bearings and races keep corrosion at bay, while premium external seals prevent contamination. Cold-forged then machined 6061 aluminum alloy is light, strong, and stout with j-bend flanges The optimized flange spacing and geometry for responsive and optimally stiff wheel builds that inspire confidence when accelerating and cornering. Additionally, the freehub body can be removed without tools and switching between Campagnolo, Shimano, and SRAM can be accomplished without re-dishing the wheel. Housed behind the freehub body is the Instant Drive 360 40T ratchet style drive system that delivers efficient and responsive power transmission in a highly reliable, virtually maintenance free package with optimized flange spacing and geometry for responsive and optimally stiff wheel builds that inspire confidence when accelerating and cornering. The Enve Alloy hubset option for the SES 4.5 Wheelset feature 24 spokes, and are laced 2x/2x. Enve uses Sapim's famed CX-Ray on all their wheels. The nipples are an Enve-specific inverted brass design, the only option rated for the rims.
