Product Details

While we haven't yet found a fault with any of ENVE's SES wheels, we have always been aware of a glaring absence when compared to other manufacturers' lines.

ENVE's SES rims jump from the climb-happy 3.4s to the cruise-missile aerodynamics of the 6.7s. That's a big leap, and if you're as particular about matching your kit to a given task as we are, then you've no doubt felt the lack of an intermediate depth. With the all-new SES 4.5 Carbon Road Wheelset, though, ENVE effectively accomplishes two things. First, it smooths the transition from climbing efficiency to speed across the flats, second and more importantly it offers what may be the single best all-around wheel in the world. Like the rest of the SES line, the 4.5s' rims aren't subjected to static, arbitrary widths and shapes. Instead, the engineers let each wheel's depth requirements dictate the ideal dimensions in order to reduce lateral forces and increase aerodynamic benefits across a wide range of yaw angles. 

Knowing that carbon gains strength from continuously wrapped fibres, we're happy to report that ENVE routes the fibres around each hole in a 100% intact design, which adds strength, boosts rigidity, and allows for less material and a lighter rim. The use of a removable bladder also keeps weight down compared to other wheels. This means the SES series boasts the highest claimed strength-to-weight ratio on the market.

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.
