SMART ENVE SYSTEM
WORLD-CLASS SPEED MEETS PREMIUM RIDE QUALITY
Our Real-World Fast philosophy means developing wheels and components that perform not just in the wind tunnel, but on the open road, on your bike, at the speeds you ride. New for 2022, is a refined SES wheel lineup that delivers SES aero excellence, and a premium ride feel for a more efficient, confidence-inspiring ride experience.
FOR THE LOVE OF SPEED
AERO JUST GOT LIGHTER
Weight isn’t everything, but you can breathe easy knowing that whichever SES wheelset you’re on will be a lightweight category leader. Through our Material Optimized Design process, all excess materials are eliminated, so that only the bare necessities remain. Thus, every piece of carbon in an SES wheel plays a specific and critical role in delivering the ENVE promise of a Real-World Fast ride experience.
TURN UP THE VOLUME
GO TUBELESS, GO FAST
ENVE has led the road tubeless evolution since 2016 when the first-of-its-kind SES 4.5 AR, with its high-volume tire optimized design, was introduced. Additionally, features like ENVE’s Wide Hookless Bead have been scaled for each wheel model to strike a balance between weight savings and pinch-flat mitigation. All tubeless compatible ENVE rims, including the all-new SES line, are in conformance with the latest ETRTO bead seat diameter standard for straight sidewall (TSS) hookless rims.
A wheel for every OBJECTIVE

Climb Faster, Descend Confidently
The outright lightweight market leader, the all-new SES 2.3 is the quickest way to the top of the mountain – period. For the climber who values performance up and down the mountain, there’s no better option than the SES 2.3. At sub-1200 grams, they’re in a league of their own and deliver a real-world advantage in mountainous terrain.
swiss army versatility
From the cruel terrain of Unbound Gravel to the summit of the Stelvio, there is nothing more versatile than the SES 3.4 – nothing. The Swiss Army knife of wheels, the SES 3.4 is adept over any terrain, through any weather condition. Just enough depth to be aero, and light – it’s the closest wheel to a one wheelset quiver that exists.
go everYwhere, fast
Simply put, the SES 4.5 is the ENVE house favorite for its outright stability at speed and confidence-inspiring ride. Renowned for being the original high-volume optimized aerodynamic road wheelset, the SES 4.5 is re-engineered to reduce weight and further expand its capabilities when the going gets fast.
speed without compromise
Striking the ultimate balance between aero efficiency, stability, rolling resistance, and weight savings, the SES 6.7 defines Real-World Fast. Through a purpose-built design philosophy that pairs aerodynamics with high-volume tires for reduced rolling resistance, the SES 6.7 is the new benchmark for speed.
FIND THE WHEEL THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU
WE KNOW AERO
IN-FRAME DEVELOPMENT. REAL-WORLD FAST.
Sound aerodynamic testing is a pillar of SES design. While the wind tunnel is not the “real-world,” it is a valuable tool that provides a controlled environment within which we can test prototype concepts, and benchmark our progress. Each wheel model in the SES lineup has undergone extensive wind tunnel testing, in a complete bicycle, at multiple speeds and wind angles to ensure that when you ride ENVE, you’re riding the fastest wheels in the world.
THE SES DIFFERENCE
There’s a simple reason why SES wheels consistently score “best in test” in nearly any third-party aero test. We’re committed to sweating the small stuff and chasing the marginal gains that others will not.
IN FRAME DEVELOPMENT
- In-frame development and ride testing have taught us that unique rim shapes and constructions between the front and back wheels optimize efficiency and the ride experience.
- Front wheels are designed to maximize crosswind stability. A rider’s stability on the bike, especially in time trial and triathlon, is critical for aero efficiency and overall performance.
- Rear wheels are designed to recapture air flow as it passes from the front of the bike to the back, which maximizes drag reduction.
- Aerodynamically optimized around modern high-volume ENVE SES 27mm tubeless tires
- Tested at 20 mph (32 kph) and 30 mph (48 kph). Our SES promise of Real-World Fast isn’t limited only to cycling’s elite.
- Weighted Average Drag – All wind angles are not created equally. Anemometer data shows that most of your ride time will be spent in wind at less than 12 degrees yaw. Weighted average drag is a tool that helps a rider understand the aero efficiency of a wheelset in real-world wind and riding conditions.
THE SES tire
LIGHT, FAST, AERO
Our pursuit of incremental gains and an improved tubeless experience led us to tires. The tire, its shape, and construction play a critical role in your speed, efficiency, and ultimately ride experience.
The years and data have proven that increasing tire volume increases speed over most surfaces for the vast majority of people.
The all-new SES wheel line was aerodynamically optimized around our own high-volume SES 27 Tire. If maximizing efficiency is your aim, the SES 27 is your tire. For those wishing to run another tire, no problem. Please reference our Tire Compatibility page for more options.
at the core
What could be considered the nucleus of an SES wheel, the ENVE Premium Road Hub brings efficiency, longevity, and simplicity to every wheelset. From hub flange geometry to bearing longevity to Perfect PreloadTM, every design detail comes from more than a decade of pairing ENVE carbon rims with the leading hubs on the market. If you’re riding ENVE, you’re riding the best.
MADE IN THE USA
Every single ENVE rim is handmade in our Ogden, Utah, headquarters and manufacturing facility. For over 15 years, our in-house development and manufacturing have resulted in being leaders in modern rim technology.
