For the better part of a decade, Enve Composites and Simon Smart have been an unstoppable team of innovators, paving the way for the future of cycling. By utilizing an immense amount of real-world and wind tunnel data, Enve’s SMART system is designed to be the absolute pinnacle of aerodynamic performance, and little can argue against it. In an attempt to create the ideal aerodynamic road race and triathlon clincher wheelset, Enve Composites has created the SES 7.8 rimset.
Designed to seamlessly integrate with aerodynamic framesets, and ideally paired with larger 25c tires, the SES 7.8 is touted by Enve as their finest aerodynamic rim option for race day roadies, and die-hard triathletes. Utilizing Enve’s venerable asymmetric rim profile, the SES 7.8 features a 71mm x 27mm front rim, coupled with an 80mm x 27.5mm rear rim, producing exceptional results on both flat, and hilly terrain. Additionally equipped with Enve’s redesigned brake track, the SES 7.8 boasts impressive increases to stopping power in both dry and wet conditions, while simultaneously being 100% tubeless compatible. Like all Enve rims, the 7.8 features proprietary molded spoke holes, resulting in a drastic increase in wheel strength.
Each Enve SES 7.8 comes with internal brass nipples, Enve rim tape, Enve Valve extenders, and proprietary Enve brake pads.
All Enve rims are proudly manufactured in Ogden, Utah, U.S.A.
