If you're looking for a do-it-all disc brake carbon wheelset, few excel in as many areas as the SES 3. 4 Disc Brake Wheelset from ENVE. It simply hits every spec we're after including centerlock disc mounting, tubeless compatibility, aerodynamics, lightweight, stability, and stiffness. It's an in-house favorite here in the office as well as at ENVE's headquarters, who happens to be our neighbor to the north. What makes it so beloved is its ability to inject speed in almost every riding situation imaginable. We've put them through the wringer and for flat fast group rides, racing, or hilly solo missions, there aren't too many other wheelsets we'd rather be on. Honed from hours spent in the wind tunnel and benefiting from the patented Smart ENVE System design, this wheelset is aerodynamic, however, it doesn't sacrifice stability when swirling canyon crosswinds test your nerve and handling skill. Now laced up to fast rolling and durable ENVE Alloy hubs, if you're shopping for an excellent upgrade or building up a new bike, this is an excellent option. Just like with the rest of the Smart ENVE System lineup, rim profiles are specifically designed for the application and with this particular wheelset, ENVE sought out a shape that created a light wheelset for climbing in the mountains, without neglecting an aerodynamic shape that saves watts elsewhere. Its solution was to create a front hoop that's four millimeters shallower than the rear, which helps mitigate the instability often experienced with deeper carbon wheels, especially as the front wheel is attached to your steering axis. The slightly deeper rear improves aerodynamic efficiency by helping the passing airflow stay attached for longer, therefore, creating less turbulence, and thus less drag, and stiffness, as the spokes are shorter. Depth is one part of the aero equation and overall width is also crucial in reducing energy lost to rolling resistance. As such, ENVE aerodynamically optimized the SES 3. 4 for ...

Maine ocean islands provide the only nesting sites for Atlantic puffins in the United States. Eastern Egg Rock in the midcoast region, Seal Island and Matinicus Rock at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, and Machias Seal Island and Petit Manan Island off the downeast coast provide habitat for more than 4,000 puffins each summer.
