PRODUCT DETAILS

The ENVE SES 5.6 Disc is the ultimate disc-specific wheelset for road racers or triathletes seeking a peerless combination of aerodynamic performance, lightweight design, crosswind stability and increased comfort for every event distance.

ENVE’s medium-depth aero wheelset, the SES 5.6 disc is built upon the foundational principles of the Smart ENVE System. This patented technology, designed by renowned aerodynamicist Simon Smart, features dissimilar rim geometries to favour the airflow at the front and back of the bike respectively.

Like the rest of the ENVE SES range, the 5.6 gets its name from its rim depths – 54mm at the front and 63mm at the rear. The wider front rim aids crosswind stability while the narrower rear rim improves overall airflow attachment for better aerodynamics.

For the SES 5.6 Disc, ENVE has removed the constraints and weight created by the need for a brake track, opening up a realm of aerodynamic and structural possibilities. This has allowed ENVE to use a completely different rim construction and laminate for a lighter wheel without sacrificing stiffness or strength while also improving aerodynamics.

This design has also allowed ENVE to utilise advances in road tyre and frame technologies to add user-friendly tubeless compatibility optimised for 25mm tyres. This means real-world gains in rolling resistance, comfort, traction and reduced chances of pinch punctures.

Industry leaders in carbon fibre, every ENVE rim is handmade from raw uni-directional carbon at ENVE’s headquarters in Utah, USA. The bespoke construction process utilises rim-specific carbon laminates, moulded spoke holes, removable bladders, and a gorgeous paint-free finish to reduce weight while maintaining strength, stiffness and allowing the beautiful handmade quality to shine through.

Every single R45 CL hub is engineered, manufactured and assembled in-house at Chris King’s HQ in Portland, Oregon. Fully serviceable and with a five-year warranty, you can be confident that you’re investing in an elite performance product that has been built to last. R45 CL hubs are synonymous with silky-smoothness, unbeatable quality and of course that distinctive angry bee sound that resounds from the hub body.

R45 CL hubs utilise an innovative 45-tooth RingDrive system for minimal drag and almost instant engagement, translating power from your legs directly into forward propulsion. As engagement systems go, this really is the best of the best. The legendary bearings and heat-treated, surgical grade steel races employed in the R45 CL not only form a super-smooth integrated system but actually become faster as they burnish with use – wearing in, rather than wearing out. Because every R45 CL is fully serviceable, you can enjoy peak performance for years to come.

Available in a wide variety of colours, R45 CL hubs enable you to give your bike a truly custom flair. Please note that some colours may require bespoke shipment for the USA and may take a little longer to acquire.
