Modern all-road riding has definitely had an influence on today's equipment. Take for instance the SES 3. 4 AR Disc Brake Wheelset from ENVE. Its tubeless rim is constructed of carbon fiber and laced to the firm's all-new alloy hubs. As a sign of the times, it's only available for disc-specific bikes and is aero-optimized for tires in the 28 to 32mm range. Built in the same vein as its popular 4. 5 AR, the 3. 4 AR promises excellent aerodynamics for higher volume tires and is even lighter for those long days in the mountains.The SES 3. 4 AR is only possible in part to a cosmic shift in the type of riding and racing "road" cyclists are embarking on these days along with frame manufacturers and tire makers providing the proper equipment to exploit this high volume desire. Once it was discovered that wider and lower pressure can be faster, the industry and riders have quickly taken note and now there's plenty of equipment that boosts aerodynamics, comfort, and performance.Where the SES 3. 4 AR shines is in its ability to reduce drag when paired with high volume 28 to 32mm tubeless compatible road tires. And while the frontal area is increased slightly with wider tires, the level of rolling resistance is reduced to a level that counteracts the losses. This is especially true since the 3. 4 AR is built for real-world performance and optimized at speeds as low as 20mph. Like the rest of the SES lineup, the front and rear rims are designed specifically for their respective positions on the bike. The front rim is shallower to maximize stability while the rear is deeper to maximize airflow reduction.The SES 3. 4 AR's disc specific laminates and construction help it maximize weight savings, making it an excellent climbing partner when the road, be it paved or gravel, turns up. While disc brakes are relatively new to road cycling, they're standard issue on mountain bikes and ENVE's been making disc brake specific mountain bike rims since its beginning. This experience ga...

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.
