The ENVE SES 5.6 Disc is the ultimate disc-specific wheelset for road racers or triathletes seeking a peerless combination of aerodynamic performance, lightweight design, crosswind stability and increased comfort for every event distance.
ENVE’s medium-depth aero wheelset, the SES 5.6 disc is built upon the foundational principles of the Smart ENVE System. This patented technology, designed by renowned aerodynamicist Simon Smart, features dissimilar rim geometries to favour the airflow at the front and back of the bike respectively.
Like the rest of the ENVE SES range, the 5.6 gets its name from its rim depths – 54mm at the front and 63mm at the rear. The wider front rim aids crosswind stability while the narrower rear rim improves overall airflow attachment for better aerodynamics.
For the SES 5.6 Disc, ENVE has removed the constraints and weight created by the need for a brake track, opening up a realm of aerodynamic and structural possibilities. This has allowed ENVE to use a completely different rim construction and laminate for a lighter wheel without sacrificing stiffness or strength while also improving aerodynamics.
This design has also allowed ENVE to utilise advances in road tyre and frame technologies to add user-friendly tubeless compatibility optimised for 25mm tyres. This means real-world gains in rolling resistance, comfort, traction and reduced chances of pinch punctures.
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 gorgeous 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.
