“Not only were the Enve wheels faster, they also made for a much livelier ride feel, really bringing out the quality of the Wilier frame, hidden by the slow stock wheels.”

SES 5.6 RIM SHAPE

fast AND STABLE

Building upon the legacy of the SES 4.5 by delivering more speed via next gen SES rim shaping, the SES 5.6 sees increased depth without a decrease in stability.

The all-new SES rim profile has revised curvature and increased widths that are optimized for 25mm tires in modern frames with greater clearances. Adding tubeless compatibility for decreased rolling resistance, along with our bar-setting carbon braking surface makes this the ultimate road-racing wheelset for everyday use.

At 54mm depth in the front, and 63mm depth in the rear, the SES 5.6 was painstakingly refined to achieve the optimal combination of strength, stiffness, and lightweight for the application for which it was designed. In the case of the SES 5.6 – Road Racing.


DISC BRAKE CONSTRUCTION

go FAST; STOP FAST

The SES 5.6 Disc is optimized aerodynamically and structurally for disc use. Road cyclists and triathletes on disc brake bikes will benefit from the SES 5.6 Disc’s reduced drag, lightweight design, and rim shape optimized for larger volume road tires.

Most “disc brake” wheelsets are simply repurposed rim brake wheels with disc hubs. The elimination of a braking surface opens up the realm of aerodynamic and structural possibilities. When you don’t have to engineer a flat braking surface and manage high temperatures from braking, you can reduce the rim’s weight, adjust shape for improved aerodynamics and provide better tubeless performance.

MOLDED CARBON BRAKE TRACK

KEEPING RIM BRAKES COOL

With near equal wet and dry performance, 30% less lever force required for the same stopping power and exceptional heat management, it’s no wonder that BikeRadar.com said our latest brake track “sets new standards for carbon wheels”. Your rim brake bike will be given a huge braking performance boost.

There are three elements, all the product of relentless research and development. First is the molded-in brake surface texture which provides more friction and allows water to be cleared almost instantly. Second is the advanced high-temp resin system which eliminates the heat build-up issues that other carbon clinchers can suffer, so you can ride long descents with total confidence. Third is our unique ENVE Black pad compound which is designed to work with the molded texture to pro
