The amazing speed and stability of the Smart ENVE System continues with the SES 4.5 Carbon Clincher Wheelset. Its 48 mm / 56 mm front and rear depths bridge a middle ground between ENVE's shallower 3.4 and deeper 6.7 models for a wheelset that excels all around. This model has been updated with ENVE’s molded-in textured brake track to give it 30% increased performance that stops equally well in the wet or the dry. Like others in the SES range, the 4.5 was developed independently in the wind tunnel to create an ideal profile that gives the best performance possible. In fact, the 4.5 has the best lateral stiffness of any SES wheelset.

This version includes ENVE’s own full-carbon hubset at the center. Using DT Swiss’s expertly crafted internals and Ceramic Speed bearings, ENVE houses them inside what other manufacturers have struggled to do, that is, hub shells that are carbon from flange to flange. To make them strong enough, the spoke holes are molded-in instead of drilled out to withstand ENVE’s demanding lab and field testing, and at the end of the day, the entire hubset only weighs 232 g.

This wheelset includes titanium quick release skewers, carbon brake pads, and valve extensions.

27 mm wide front rim / 25.5 mm wide rear rim. 20 hole front / 24 hole rear. Claimed wheelset weight is 1479 g.

Made in USA.

Solid Speed and Performance

I have been riding these wheels for over a year. They perform well on ascents of the local canyons in Utah, the low weight and medium dish fly on the uphill. Making up time or drafting on the flats is where I really noticed the the 4.5's were a step above the wheels I was riding previously ( HED Jet 4). Although these wheels can slay it all, where they performed best was on the descents! Having stability you can trust while zooming down a canyon and knowing that when a turn comes you can trust the tracking of the wheels and really get into the turns. The 4.5's have just enough dish to feel the aero effects, but not enough that is catches cross winds. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a performance wheel set that can do it all.

Defective front hub

A very nice looking and aerodynamic wheelset. However, mine had a defective front hub which did not roll smoothly (exhibited notable resistance). Tried to work directly with Enve but they could not offer an acceptable solution in a reasonable time period. BTD was great, as usual, with resolving the problem. I'll continue to use BTD for all my cycling needs but that won't include Enve products.

Great All Around carbon wheels!

Fast wheel on the flats and excellent climbing too. Smooth ceramic bearings. Has little flex left right for a 170 lbs. rider.
