Product ID: 818694

The fastest of the Smart ENVE System (SES) wheels, the 7.8 NBT Clincher Wheelset with Ceramic Chris King R45 Hubs is designed for speed and stability.

With a 71mm deep front and 80mm deep rear rim depth for enhanced airflow efficiency, you'll slice through the wind whether racing in the bunch or against the clock. The tubeless-ready design allows you to take advantage of a tubeless, lower pressure setup, namely reduced rolling resistance and improved comfort, traction and puncture protection. ENVE's new moulded brake track dramatically enhances braking efficiency in all conditions and the Chris King R45 hubs feature top-end ceramic bearings for smoother, faster rolling.

ENVE SES 7.8 NBT Clincher Wheelset with Ceramic Chris King R45 Hubs

Whether a triathlete, road racer or time triallist, the ENVE SES 7.8 NBT Clincher Wheelset with Ceramic Chris King R45 Hubs will help you perform to your highest level and get onto that podium. These wheels have been designed to go fast whilst remaining stable for confidence no matter how windy the conditions.

An asymmetric rim profile enhances the aerodynamic efficiency with a 71mm deep and 29mm wide front and 80mm deep and 27.5mm wide rear and with the popularity of wider tyres increasing, the wheelset has been optimised for wider tyres, offering more grip and comfort. As well as this, it's easy to convert to a tubeless setup for increased puncture protection and reduced rolling resistance.

The latest moulded brake track technology increases the friction between the rim and the brake pad and dramatically improves braking power for high-speed and descending confidence. A further benefit is the fast clearance of water so performance remains exceptional, even in the wet. The temperature resistant resin eliminates the risk of overheating when braking heavily that is common with carbon rims.

Completing this wheelset are the Chris King R45 hubs, offering outstanding quality, with legendary made-in-house bearings that roll smooth and fast. These hubs engage fast and translate all your power into speed. Also easily serviceable and completely rebuildable, these hubs will last year after year.
