ENVE SES 4.5 Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher - ENVE Carbon Ceramic Hubs

ENVE's wheels occasionally give us mortals the chance to feel like we're riding like higher powers, and with the advent of the SES 4. 5 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset, complete with ENVE's Carbon Ceramic Hubs, ENVE blends powerful, competent internals with its rims' ethereal, functional exterior. In fact, the SES 4. 5 rims have already earned fabled status as they carried MTN Qhubeka's Cummings to victory in Stage 14 of the 2015 Tour; however, the ENVE carbon hubs included here are actually lighter and smoother than the ones Mr. Cummings himself races on. For the SES line, ENVE's engineers use wheel depth requirements to determine the ideal width dimensions and rim shape, allowing them to reduce lateral forces and increase aerodynamic benefits across a diverse range of yaw angles. ENVE also anticipates the different behaviors of front and rear wheels, shaping the front rim to 48mm deep and 27mm wide, and applying a slimmer, deeper shape to the rear, which measures 56mm deep and 25. 5mm wide. As the wheels spin, this design caters to stability in the front and aerodynamic gains in back without impacting the stability of the system as a whole. For you, all of these measurements result in a wheelset that won't quake at the first gusty crosswind, behaving much like wheelsets far shallower than it. ENVE has successfully proven this claim by subjecting its wheels to a Stability Index borrowed from the Formula One industry. The rigorous testing involves subjecting the wheels to rapidly changing wind speeds at a variety of yaw angles, ensuring the wheels are able respond calmly to sharp turns in windy conditions. Stable is a word we continue to associate with this wheelset, and it's no exaggeration. ENVE being ENVE, the actual construction process is just as meticulous and time consuming as the meta work of designing the rim. It entails wrapping the carbon fibers continuously around each spoke hole in a 100% intact design, allowing for less material, more structural i...

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
