Whether you're racing a time trial, triathlon or a criterium, the huge aerodynamic benefits of Enve's SES 8.9 rims will have you rocketing around the course faster than ever. To give you the ultimate advantage, Enve developed these lighting-fast rims in collaboration with Formula One aerodynamics expert Simon Smart. Smart's wind tunnel-optimized rim profile works in tandem with Enve's class-leading carbon layup to set a new standard in speed, strength and light weight. Handling is kept stable and predictable by using a wider and more shallow front rim, which optimizes airflow in crosswinds and during cornering. And, a special textured braking surfaces boosts stopping power and modulation in both the wet and dry.
Special tooling was developed to manufacture the molds for ENVE's SES wheels, which align the surface of the brake track flush with the side of the rim. Formula 1 aerodynamicist and ENVE consultant, Simon Smart mandated this feature as essential to creating bicycle wheels with unsurpassed aerodynamics. The SES 8.9 Tubular wheel shown, price listed is for rim.
