“The stability continued to impress every ride, but the highlight for me was the braking. Compared to my own carbon clinchers, it’s a night and day difference. They even out-perform my aluminum wheels, for smooth progression as well as sheer power. The wet braking is impressive, too. It still feels ‘wet’, but it’s really predictable and vastly superior to what I’m used to.” – Ben Skinner | SES 3.4 Demo

SES 3.4

What it is
Who it's for
Why we made it

A climbing wheel with an aero advantage, designed to be ridden in the mountains.

Road cyclists who require maximum versatility for riding in mountainous terrain and variable weather conditions.

Since the introduction of the original SES 3.4 we’’ve implemented new design concepts across the SES lineup that result in a faster wheel and improved ride experience. The SES 3.4 features road tubeless compatibility, 25mm tire optimization, molded carbon brake track technology, and optimized SES aero rim shaping to ensure maximum efficiencies for a shallow aero wheel. Equally at home in the mountains as in the valleys, the SES 3.4 is the most versatile Smart ENVE System aero wheel.

    3.4 SES for a Titanium Dream

    Voltaire Cao

    How many hours/week do you ride? 6-15

    What is your age bracket? 36-45

    I had the opportunity to build a custom built Titanium Vassago Roadie. With that the 3.4 SES was a must. I paired it with a set of White Industry high polish hubs and Vitoria Corsa 28mm (tan sidewalls). The wheels chosen are a perfect combination for this build. Balanced, light, nimble and fast is how I can describe the wheels. The bike climbs and descends well. Stoked to have this steed as my Sunday Slayer to the coffee shop but don’t let it fool you. It performs as well as it looks complimenting that Titanium frame. Giving that vintage vibe but with a race ready Etap drivetrain the wheels definitely flies!!!! Compared to some of the wheels I’ve tried (Mavic, Roval, Industry nine, Giant SLR -O) I feel these are an absolute dream. The fit, the finish, and performance are top notch. Finally, the craftsmanship backed by a solid warranty give me that piece of mind. Thank you

    I was riding my bike for a year in the canyons surrounding SLC and I truly believed that it was dialed, until an unfortunate incident occurred that required me to purchase a new set of wheels. I went with the Enve 3.4s/CK and everything changed. Suddenly I’m watching minutes drop from Strava times, both on the ascent and descent. The improved brake track is light years ahead of other carbon hoops that I’ve ridden, and I’m confident braking far later leading into turns. With the movement towards larger, more aero wheels I was on the fence about the 3.4s, but they roll faster than my 65mm wheels from another popular brand and are completely invisible to the wind. To top all of this off, the wheels are stunningly beautiful… do yourself a favor and stop searching, you’ve found the cheat code.

    SES 3.4 = Perfection

    These wheels are incredible. The profile is excellent for smaller riders or if you are wanting to scream up any hill. They spin up super fast, have the straight line feeling of deeper wheels, all while having the cross wind affects of an even shallower wheelset. The fit and finish of them are top notch as well.
