6.7

What happens when the aero-engineering legend Simon Smart, and ENVE Composites team up? Well, the ENVE Smart System line of wheels, of course. Simply put, the SES lineup plays host to some of the highest levels of strength-to-weight ratios, race-ready stiffness, and watts-saving aerodynamics that we've ever seen. And of course, the ENVE SES 6.7 Carbon Clincher Wheelset is a shiny apple in this family tree.

As part of the ENVE Smart System, SES series, the 6.7 carbon clincher uses ENVE's most sophisticated technology and engineering techniques in order to ensure a fast, stiff, and aerodynamic wheelset. The 6.7's aerodynamic design starts with the size differential of the wheels. ENVE accounted for the different behaviours of front and rear wheels, and designed the 6.7s with the front wheel that's 60mm deep and 26mm wide, while the rear wheel is 70mm deep and 24mm wide. The front wheel's shallow profile and wide stance helps decrease drag in windy conditions. On the other hand, the rear wheel's depth decreases drag, because stability is less affected at the aft position of the bike. According to ENVE, the 6.7s create a low drag number rivalling many competitors' 60mm wheels. In fact, when comparing the necessary power required to hold 40kph at yaw angles ranging from 0 to 16 degrees, the 6.7 goes toe-to-toe with the Zipp 808 Firecrest Clincher and is leaps and bounds ahead of the 404 Firecrest Clincher even more so at yaw angles 11 degrees and above.

Outside of consistent aerodynamic performance, the most noticeable advantage of the 6.7 carbon clincher wheelset is its enhanced stability. The 6.7 demonstrates stellar results under the ENVE Stability Index, a series of tests that incorporate the measurement of transient aerodynamics. In the wind tunnel, the front wheel is subjected to quick changes in wind degree at set yaw angles, and the steering torque of user-correction is then measured. The test represents real-world conditions, and surprisingly, ENVE is one of the only non-Formula One manufacturers to conduct it. The 6.7 shape was developed as a result of these tests, and it ensures predictable airflow attachment over the rim, regardless of crosswind. In fact, the linear steering response trumps even the Zipp Firecrest series. In a crosswind, the 6.7 experiences a build-up of side-force equal to the changing angle of the wind, and the predictability prevents the need for rider over-correction.

The Smart System 6.7 clincher is not only aero, but it's also lightweight, stiff, and strong. The ENVE SES series boasts the highest strength-to-weight ratio on the market, and this is due in part to ENVE's patented process of molding in-spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve stem holes. Knowing that carbon fibre gains strength from continuous fibres, ENVE routes the fibres around each hole in a 100% intact design. This design allows a lower weight at the spoke face, and adds overall rigidity to the rim. When built, the molded design promotes both higher spoke tension and tension uniformity than the industry standard of bladder molding. Another aspect of the 6.7's light weight is due to ENVE's use of removal bladders during the molding process. While most composite rim manufacturers leave the rim-shaping, inflatable bladder within the rim, ENVE spends the time and money to remove it. This time-consuming process reduces rim weight, and makes for a perfectly tensioned wheel build.

The R45 Chris King hubs are 10/11spd compatible and available in Shimano/SRAM or Campagnolo versions. Like all Chris King hubsets the R45s are designed to be easily upgradeable and convertible. Changing one version to another is simple, only requiring the use of version specific driveshell assemblies and axles.

As with every Chris King bearing, the stainless steel sealed bearings featured on the R45 hub are made in-house in Portland, Oregon and individually hand-checked for precision and smoothness. The proprietary bearing design allows placement of more rolling elements per bearing meaning greater durability and precision. R45 bearings also feature lightweight, low-friction seals for fast rolling and can be easily serviced at regular intervals using only a single 2.5 mm hex wrench and penknife.
