ENVE SES 3.4 NBT Tubular Wheelset Chris King R45 Hub
Supreme ride feel, a lightweight construction and improved responsiveness when accelerating, climbing, cornering and braking are all reasons riders choose a tubular setup and ENVE's SES 3.4 NBT Tubular Wheelset with Chris King R45 Hubs fulfils these requirements perfectly. Weighing an exceptionally low 1357 grams for the wheelset, the ENVE 3.4 is ideal for climbing and mountainous terrain.
Utilising ENVE's newest and most advanced brake track technology increases friction between the brake track and pad resulting in the need for 30% less lever force for same stopping power of other carbon brake tracks. This construction sets new standards in carbon braking and the fast dispersal of water off the surface means that braking in the wet is almost equal to that in the dry. Carbon rims can overheat far quicker than an aluminium braking surface but the high-temp resin system eliminates this issue so you can take long descents and brake heavily without any worries.
Chris King's R45 hub has been designed as a lightweight road racing hub, engages almost instantly and offers exceptional power transfer. The made-in-house steel bearings are legendary and ensure that you'll roll smooth and fast.
This versatile wheelset not only performs well on the climbs, it also offers an aerodynamic advantage and excellent stability in all conditions. The front rim is shallower, with a 38mm depth, and the rear is 42mm deep to enhance aerodynamics. The external rim width of 27.5mm has been optimised for use with 25mm tyres for lower rolling resistance and enhanced comfort and traction.
