Few manufacturers live up to their names like ENVE, whose rims not only redefined race wheel aesthetics but inspire envious glances the world over. This is taken up another rung when the hoops are laced to its very own carbon rims and the SES 3. 4 Carbon Hub Wheelset is the result. Carbon rims on smooth spinning carbon hubs create a wheelset that'll turn heads on race day, and the fact that the hubs feature Mavic's ID 360 star ratchet internals means those heads may get whiplash trying to keep up. Add to that its impressive brake track that brings a powerful boost to stopping in a wheelset that we associate primarily with going. We've spent enough time on the SES 3. 4 to state definitively that the SES wheel design successfully improves the quality of our rides. And while disc brakes seem to be getting all of the praise, with its Gen 2 brake track, it offers braking so exceptional it has us questioning if rotors are needed. The brake track's molded-in texture pattern and specially designed pads achieve a claimed 30% increase in stopping power that manifests in both wet and dry conditions. Enough about braking, the thing that really sets our hearts aflutter is all of the aerodynamic black magic that has inspired so much starting line envy in competitors the world over. The SES 3. 4's rims aren't subjected to static, arbitrary widths and shapes. Instead, the engineers let each wheel's depth requirements dictate the ideal dimensions in order to reduce lateral forces and increase aerodynamic benefits across a wide range of yaw angles. The 3. 4's design also accounts for the different behaviors of front and rear wheels. The front wheel is 38mm deep while the rear wheel is deeper at 42mm. This decreases drag with a focus on increased stability up front while taking advantage of the fact that the aft position has less of an effect on steering stability to focus on aerodynamic gains in the rear. The result is that the 3. 4 handles crosswinds and gusts with the confi...

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
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.
