Rebellious, unconventional, and pioneering are words that describe the one of its kind, the Enve SES 4.5 AR Disc Wheelset. Conceptualized for the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix through our partnership with Team Dimension Data, the SES 4.5 AR Disc was developed to deliver top shelf aero performance, stability, and comfort for virtually any road surface. The SES 4.5 AR Disc is available as a tubeless clincher and tubular model rim. The SES 4.5 AR Disc borrows from ENVE M Series carbon mountain wheel tubeless technology and features hookless beads. Hookless beads improve aerodynamic performance by aiding airflow from tire to rim as well as allow for the best tubeless tire performance possible. Like all Smart ENVE System aero wheels, the front and rear rims are specifically designed for the airflow seen at the front and back of the bike. As such, the front rim is more shallow and wider to maximize stability and the rear is deeper and narrower to aid in drag reduction. In addition to dissimilar geometries, the SES 4.5 AR Disc features a disc brake specific construction that saves weight, improves strength, and creates an unprecedented ride quality.
The Enve SES 4.5 AR Disc Wheelset comes in either Tubeless clincher or tubular, with two different hub choices. The DT swiss tubeless clincher wheelset weighs in at 1506 grams and the tubular wheelset weighs in a 1544 grams. The Chris King R45 tubeless clincher weighs in at 1383 grams and the tubular wheelset weighs in at 1421 grams. The Chris King R45 Ceramic hub weighs the same as the R45. Both sets of hubs have center lock disc brake interfaces.
