Since its introduction in 2009, the Smart ENVE System 3.4 has established itself as ENVEs most versatile and consequently most popular carbon fiber aero road rim amongst road cyclists of all abilities. As such, its no surprise that ENVEs first stage victory at the Tour de France was delivered by Steve Cummings aboard the SES 3.4. This new SES 3.4 is wider than its predecessor to improve aerodynamics for use with wider tubulars. Like all SES wheel models, the SES 3.4 features dissimilar rim shapes and geometries between front and back rims to maximize aerodynamic efficiency and rideability in variable wind and weather conditions. The front rim is 38mm deep and shallower than the rear rim to aid in cross wind stability while rear rim is 42mm deep and therefore improves overall airflow attachment. For riding in mountainous terrain where heavy braking is required, the SES 3.4 features a high temperature resistant resin system and ENVEs molded in brake track technology to ensure rim integrity and precision braking when and where it is needed most, in mountainous terrain.
