The ENVE 2.2 is optimised to conquer the steepest mountain passes. It was developed for Team MTN-Qhubeka’s Tour de France and designed to withstand the demands of the Tour’s above category cols. With a rim weight of 281g, sub 1000g wheelset configurations become a reality. The low and wide profile (25mm deep x 27mm wide) pairs perfectly with wider tyres and provides greater lateral stiffness when combined with a quality hub and spoke combination.
The ENVE 2.2 also features a new and improved brake track; the brake track is moulded with a slight tooth that promises equal braking performance in wet and dry conditions. Newly designed brake pads are included with the rim as well.
The ENVE 2.2 wheelset was developed like other wheels of the series in conjunction with British aerodynamics expert Simon Smart. The team worked to optimise the rim profile within the context of bicycle frames and using speed sweeps to ensure predictable performance in gusty conditions. Unlike the rest of the SES family, it is unique in that it was aerodynamically optimised to be matched with 25c tyres for lower rolling resistance. Due to rim depth, the front and rear rims are the same profile.
These wheels also stand out within the SES line in that they feature an innovative in-mould brake track to improve stopping power over long descents. It features a nail file texture and is used in conjunction with new and improved brake pads. Combined, ENVE claims the braketrack has better longevity than its current style in-mold track, functions dramatically better in wet conditions, and requires 30% less force at the brake lever to use.
