For road racers and triathletes looking to maximize speed and efficiency through class-leading aerodynamics paired with rolling resistance defying road tubeless technology.

The SES 5.6 is the evolution of the proven SES 4.5. By implementing the latest SES technologies, the SES 5.6 is not only faster than its predecessor, but also more stable and confidence inspiring in challenging wind conditions. Other changes include tubeless tire compatibility for improved traction, rolling efficiency, and less flat tires. 

The SES 4.5 has been a staple in the Smart ENVE System family of wheels since its launch in 2014. Since then, nearly everything in road racing has changed; among them, the realization that more volume can equate to more speed and efficiency on the road. The SES 5.6 is road tubeless compatible (tubular version available too) and embodies the spirit of the SES 4.5 by taking its position in the SES lineup as the best road racing wheelset on the market. While disc brakes are commonplace on the road, ENVE acknowledges that they’re not necessary or desired by everyone.

For the rim brake rider looking for uncompromised braking performance, the ENVE textured full carbon brake track features industry leading heat resistance, uncontested stopping power, and modulation in wet or dry weather conditions. By employing the latest Smart ENVE System aero technologies, the SES 5.6 is faster, more stable, and designed to seamlessly pair with modern road bikes to improve your performance and ride experience.
