The ENVE SES 4.5 AR Disc is an uncompromising aero wheelset that's perfect if you're seeking more speed, comfort, and traction over poor road surfaces and even the occasional gravel track.

Designed as the ultimate race wheel for the Spring Classics, the SES 4.5 AR brings aerodynamics to all-road performance, giving pro riders the superior grip, rolling resistance and comfort of 30mm tyres over cobbled sections and an aero boost between them.

As with the rest of the SES range, the 4.5 AR derives its name from its rim depths: 49mm front and 55mm rear, each with patented dissimilar SES rim geometries.

With the SES 4.5 AR, the introduction of road-disc frames with increased tyre clearance has allowed ENVE to take an unconventional approach to wheel design. ENVE has created front and rear rim shapes that better manage airflow around wider tyres, significantly reducing flow separation.

Industry leaders in carbon fibre, every ENVE rim is handmade from raw uni-directional carbon at ENVE's headquarters in Utah, USA. The bespoke construction process utilises rim-specific carbon laminates, moulded spoke holes, and removable bladders. The paint-free finish reduces weight while maintaining strength, stiffness and allowing the beautiful handmade quality to shine through.

Saddleback hand builds its ENVE wheels in-house, ensuring superb build quality and oversight from the moment components arrive at our in-house wheel building facilities to when the completed wheels are sent out for delivery.

For SES wheels, our number one choice for hubs is Chris King R45s. The Chris King R45 rear hub combines a redesigned RingDrive™ system with 45 teeth for lower drag and near instant engagement. It has a lightweight hub body and Chris King’s legendary made-in-house bearings, in either steel or ceramic. Fully serviceable and with a five-year warranty, you can be confident that you’re investing in an elite performance product that has been built to last.

Saddleback also offers bespoke wheel builds with a variety of hubs. These include DT Swiss and Industry Nine. Contact our wheel builders to find out more about bespoke builds.
