ENVE SES 3.4 carbon clinchers

The set we had in hand was built up with DT Swiss 240 hubs, but they are also available in a Chris King version. The front wheel is 26mm wide and 35mm deep and has 20 spokes, while the rear is 24mm wide and 45mm deep with 24 spokes. On our scale the front wheel with the ENVE rim strip weighed 679 grams while the rear with the rim strip in place was 806 grams. We listed them here in the race wheels category, but they would certainly be very fine training wheels too - one of the big advantages of carbon clinchers.

We explore the topic of rim width and tire width, and what it means to you. Should you go wide? Should you go narrow? What are the implications? We discuss these topics, and offer a complete listing of current rims specs. 5.30.12
We review the 2013 Zipp Super-9 Carbon Clincher disc wheel. Claimed to be the “fastest wheel ever”, we take a close look at this new disc to find out for ourselves just how fast it is. 10.20.12
