What's Included

The SES 3.4 AR is the embodiment of the modern disc brake only road wheelset. Aerodynamically optimized for high volume tires (28-32mm), lightweight for long days in the mountains, high volume for all roads, and arguably the most versatile wheelset we’ve ever made.

In 2016 we launched the SES 4.5 AR a wheelset ahead of its time. Since then, road riders, frame manufacturers, and tire makers have all caught the high volume vision which has propelled the one of its kind 4.5 AR to be our most popular selling wheel in North America where the high volume all road movement has gained the most traction. As more bikes are created that can accommodate tire clearances up to 32mm, we saw the need to create a more versatile, climber friendly SES AR wheelset and the SES 3.4 AR was born.

• Real world aerodynamics, optimized around 28mm to 32mm tubeless tires
• Wide Hookless Bead Anti-Pinch Flat Technology
• Disc brake specific materials and construction
• Low weight leader in category
• Tubeless only design – Hookless beads

The SES 3.4 AR is the definitive modern road wheelset and is aerodynamically optimized to maximize drag reduction when paired with high volume 28mm to 32mm tubeless compatible road tires. While frontal area is increased slightly with these wider tires, the coefficient of rolling resistance is reduced to a level that more than counteracts the losses in aero efficiency due to the dimensions of the wheel and tire combination. Like all SES wheelsets, the SES 3.4 AR is developed on a foundation of real world performance and was optimized at speeds as low as 20mph/32kph to ensure aero efficiencies are attained by riders of all abilities. The SES 3.4 AR features a full carbon fiber disc brake specific construction to maximize weight savings, making it an excellent choice for riders seeking an adept climbing wheel. Consequently, the SES 3.4 AR is the lightest road wheel on the market in its category. Given the wheel’s intent for mountain and mixed surface riding on high volume tires, riders who seek more confidence when descending technical mountain descents will find their solution in the SES 3.4 AR. The additional tire volume means more traction that inspires confidence over the most variable road surfaces. To further ensure mixed and allroad performance, the SES 3.4 AR has been optimized for road tubeless performance and features a hookless bead design that allows for the precise rim dimensions required to achieve the best tubeless performance. To further tubeless tire and rim reliability, the full carbon wheelset features ENVE’s patent pending Wide Hookless Bead which is a design element at the leading edge of the rim that provides a surface that when impacted, will reduce the likelihood of pinch flatting a tubeless tire. With these features, and an internal rim width of 25mm the SES 3.4 AR may also be used with tires greater than 32mm and ridden in mixed surface road events like the Belgian Waffle Ride or even gravel events such as Dirty Kanza when aerodynamics are prioritized.

SES AR wheelsets feature a straight sidewall/hookless bead design and are qualified for use with “Tubeless, Tubeless Ready (TLR)” tires, with a labeled width of 28c or greater ONLY. One may safely run inner-tubes as long as the tire itself is of a tubeless or tubeless ready construction. SES AR aerodynamics and stability are optimized when the wheelset is paired with a tire that is labeled as being 28c. Below is a list of approved/recommended tires as well as tires that have been proven incompatible and cannot be recommended at this time.

For tires listed as “incompatible/not recommended,” we are working with the tire manufacturers so changes can be made to move tires on to the “Approved” list. If a tire you would like to run is not listed, it does not mean that it is incompatible. Rather, we have not tested it yet. In the situation that you choose to run a tire that is not on the “Approved” list, you do so at your own risk. Please refer to our tire pressure recommendation chart for SES AR wheels (25mm Internal Width) and never exceed air pressure of 80psi/5.5bar for 28c, and 67psi/4.6bar for 32c.

Pressure Reminder
MAX PRESSURE FOR A 28MM TIRE = 80psi/5.5bar.

MAX PRESSURE FOR A 32MM TIRE = 67psi/4.6bar

These tires sizes are compatible, but will eliminate aerodynamic advantage of the rim profile. If your intention is to run these tire sizes on a regular basis, the G Series G23 is better suited for these tires and applications. Please refer to tire pressure chart for recommendation and max pressure rating. Max tire pressures for tires in this size range will be between 35-60psi/2.4-4.1bar.
