If you're a racer on a budget, the one place you shouldn't skimp is on the rolling stock. Top quality wheels make a huge and noticeable difference in performance and ride quality. And if you are looking for a top flight pair of tubular racing wheels, then consider the Smart Enve System 3.4 Carbon Tubular Wheelset.

Designed to hit all the right numbers for the holy trinity of aerodynamics, stability and lightness, the 3.4 Tubular Wheels are ideal as your everyday and your race day wheels. While deeper-section wheels can be faster, they often get pitched about in heavy crosswinds. These Enve 3.4 wheels are easier to handle and potentially safer on blustery days. Low drag numbers and confidence-inspiring stability mean that you won't have to worry about being swept off the road.

Enve and Simon Smart have managed this by developing a method by which they could measure steering torque in response to crosswinds. You can see the results in the shape and size of each rim, they're optimized for their front or rear applications, the front rim has a depth of 35mm and a width of 26mm to increase stability while the rear rim has a depth of 45mm and a width of 24mm to reduce drag since stability is less of an issue. This combo is fast and predictable in real-wind situations. That you can count on their stability might save your time trial or your life if you happen to be riding on the shoulder of a wind-swept road.

While the 3.4 Wheels are aerodynamically efficient, they're the 'climbing' wheels in the Smart Enve System collection. They're breathtakingly light, the rims are a feathery 367g in the front and 392g in the rear. These wheels together will weigh less than one filled water bottle. You will experience an epiphany on your first foray into the mountains, it will become clear why professionals use wheels like these day after day in the hills. Anyone with wheels this light and predictable will have an immediate advantage over his or her more conventionally equipped opponents.

The spoke count has a lot to do with the light weight. There are only 20 in the front and the 24 in the rear. However, this doesn't mean that the 3.4 Wheels can't handle the abuses of rough roads. That's because Enve employs a patented process by which they mold the spoke hole into the laminate. This reduces the possibility of the spokes pulling through the rim, and they don't have to reinforce the areas with superfluous material. The high pressure molding makes the wheels light and strong.

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.
