The Ultimate High-Volume Aero Wheelset
When speed across most any terrain is priority number one, look no further than the ENVE SES 4.5 Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset. Originally designed for the cobbles and crosswinds of Paris-Roubaix to provide an aero benefit with high volume tires, the SES 4.5 was the first of its kind and is now re-designed to deliver more speed in a lighter package.
Real-world aero performance to ENVE means developing wheels and components that perform not just in the wind tunnel, but on the open road, on any bike at any speed. To deliver on this promise, the SES wheel lineup continues to feature front and rear wheels that are developed for the specific flow field for which they are intended. Front wheels are designed to maximize stability and handling while rear wheels are optimized for drag reduction.
New for 2024, re-designed ENVE Premium Road Hubs are now made in-house, lighter and more reliable with an improved pre-load and ratchet system.
Go Fast, Everywhere
The ENVE house favorite for its outright speed and confidence-inspiring ride, the SES 4.5 has been re-engineered to reduce weight, increase aero efficiency and further expand its capabilities when the going gets fast. Whether you're pinning on the number for race day or seeking the fastest road wheelset across undulating terrain, the SES 4.5 is in the sweet spot for speed.
ENVE have taken all the best features of the SES 4.5 AR, such as the high-volume tire optimized rim design and shaping that gives it class-leading aerodynamics and stability, and updated it to include anti pinch-flat technology along with a lighter more refined laminate to reduce weight and improve the ride feel. The re-design gives the new SES 4.5 greater versatility through pinch-flat resistance and a reduction in weight with zero compromises to speed.
With an internal rim width of 25mm, confident handling results, making the SES 4.5 a game-changer on technical courses with imperfect pavement. Like the rest of the SES wheel line, the SES 4.5 has been optimized for road tubeless performance and features a hookless bead design that allows for the precise rim dimensions required to achieve the best tubeless performance. To further improve tubeless tire and rim reliability, this aerodynamic carbon fiber wheelset features ENVE's patent pending Wide Hookless Bead, a design element at the leading edge of the rim that provides a more forgiving surface, that when impacted, will reduce the likelihood of pinch-flatting a tubeless tire.
