The wheel that first merged aero with high volume tires, designed to make you faster on all road surfaces. Proven on the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix.
• Intended Use: Road, All-Road
• Inner rim width: 25mm
• Aero Optimized Tire Size: 27 – 32c
The SES 4.5 AR is an uncompromising aero wheel designed specifically for disc brake equipped bikes and large volume 27 to 30mm tubeless road tires.
Rebellious, unconventional, and pioneering are words that describe the one of its kind SES 4.5 AR. Conceptualized for the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix through our partnership with Team Dimension Data, the SES 4.5 AR was developed to deliver top shelf aero performance, stability, and comfort for virtually any road surface. The SES 4.5 AR is available as a tubeless clincher and tubular model rim.
The SES 4.5 AR borrows from ENVE M Series carbon mountain wheel tubeless technology and features hookless beads. Hookless beads improve aerodynamic performance by aiding airflow from tire to rim as well as allow for the best tubeless tire performance possible. Like all Smart ENVE System aero wheels, the front and rear rims are specifically designed for the airflow seen at the front and back of the bike. As such, the front rim is more shallow and wider to maximize stability and the rear is deeper and narrower to aid in drag reduction. In addition to dissimilar geometries, the SES 4.5 AR features a disc brake specific construction that saves weight, improves strength, and creates an unprecedented ride quality.
