The ENVE 2.2 SES Wheelset is the ultimate climbing wheelset weighing 1360g (for a tubeless set-up) 1200g (tubular) with Chris King hubs and with aerodynamic properties that redefine stability in the most extreme wind and weather conditions.
An SES featured climbing wheel featuring the latest in ENVE brake track technology, available as a tubeless clincher or tubular, designed for climbing specialists seeking a wheelset that inspires confidence regardless of terrain or weather conditions.
The 2.2 SES was created to give you and the climbing specialists on Team Dimension Data Qhubeka every advantage when riding through mountainous terrain and unpredictable weather conditions.
The Smart ENVE System 2.2 is the ultimate climbing wheel with aerodynamic properties that refine stability in the most extreme wind and weather conditions. As such, lightweight trumps drag reduction with the SES 2.2.
The SES 2.2 underwent in-frame development in the Mercedes GP-Petronas wind tunnel in order to define the final shape of the rim. Unlike the other SES wheelsets, the SES 2.2 features the same rim geometry front to rear whereas its SES counterparts have dissimilar rim width and depth front to rear in order to maximize aerodynamic efficiency.
In terms of tire fitment, the SES 2.2 is developed to be used with 25mm tires and the clincher version of the rims is tubeless compatible. Because the SES 2.2 is designed to be ridden through the mountains, the SES 2.2 was the first SES rim to feature ENVE's new moulded in brake track texture. This new brake track texture improves braking performance by as much as 30% over the previous brake track and performs as well in wet conditions as it does in dry.
Each SES 2.2 wheelset includes 2 pairs of ENVE's new black brake pads which have been specially formulated to improve braking power, modulation, and wet weather performance. The combination of the new brake track and black brake pad compound deliver the ultimate in rim brake technology.
