ENVE 3.4 SES
£ 2,900 ||| $ 3,200
The irst of Enve’s game-changing SES generation, launched in 2011, has been redesigned. This new version is wider (29.75/29mm f/r), has less di ferentiated depths (38/42mm instead of 35/45mm), gains tubeless compatibility and the new moulded brake track irst seen on the 7.8. On Chris King R45 hubs, the rim brake clincher weighs 1,416g. You can upgrade to Enve’s own carbon hubs, saving 85g in return for more of your savings (£600/$300) and taking the tubular version (£200/$200 less) down to a claimed 1,271g. Disc-speci ic versions are also available. We’ve already tested this set and found the rim-braking and stability to be exceptional. They’re fast, too, and optimised for 25mm tyres. This is a wheel for the mountains that won’t hang you out to dry in the valleys.
