ENVE 7.8 SES Carbon Road Clincher Wheelset with Chris King Hubs
ENVE's SES 7.8 NBT Clincher Wheelset with Chris King R45 Hubs is their fastest SES aero wheelset yet, and will give you that edge in road races and triathlons, whether that's sprinting for the line or racing against the clock for your best bike segment time.
The rims have been optimised for 25mm tyres, a now common choice among road riders for their reduced rolling resistance and increased grip and comfort. A wider profile, front rim depth of 71mm and rear of 80mm make this wheelset extremely aerodynamic but also incredibly stable so you'll still be able to take advantage of the benefits in the strongest crosswinds.
Chris King components are world renowned for their precision engineering and high-quality construction and the R45 hubs are no exception. Super fast engagement and efficient power transfer, combined with a lightweight build and made-in-house bearings, makes for a smooth, fast and responsive ride, every time. You'll get years of quality riding out of these hubs as they are easy to service and can be completely rebuilt when the time comes.
Setting new standards for carbon braking surfaces, the moulded brake track will give you 30% improved stopping power thanks to increased friction and, with fast clearance of water, you need not worry about poor performance in the wet. Carbon wheels can be troublesome when it comes to heavy braking, especially in hot conditions on long descents. A temperature-resistant resin eliminates this issue and prevents excessive build-up of heat.
