ENVE is a carbon manufacturer dedicated to evolving and expanding its full product line (including their SES aerodynamic rim series) to include options for the emerging road disc market. This SES 5.6 rim set features a disc-brake specific design with deep 54 and 63mm profiles. As disc-specific rims, these were designed from the ground up without having to account for the heat management issues that rim brakes create. This mean the rim bed itself is lighter, allowing for a really snappier ride quality with quicker accelerations. The 5.6 disc is a excellent choice for triathlons, aggressive road riding and criterium Racing. As with all of ENVE's SES rims, the front and back rims feature different profiles designed to optimize airflow around the separate wheels. The front rim is .75mm wider and 9mm shallower, improving handling and cutting wind more efficiently. The rear rim, with its slightly narrower profile and 63mm depth, decreases pressure drag and smooths out air coming off of the trailing edge of the bike.
