ENVE 7.8 | THE NEXT GENERATION

ENVE in conjunction with Simon Smart made the SES 7.8 to achieve two things: more speed and more stability. The SES 7.8 embodies the latest SES technologies and includes our newest moulded in brake track and tubeless clincher tyre compatibility. The SES 7.8 is wider and specifically optimised to perform best when used with a modern aero frame and large 25mm tyres. Available in tubular and clincher versions from mid November from Strada the ENVE experts.

Note – price shown is per rim only, contact Strada for a quote using top quality hubs from Chris King, DT Swiss and Tune.

Description

WHAT IS IT? – The ENVE 7.8 is the fastest carbon fibre Smart ENVE System aero wheel yet.

WHO IS IT FOR? – Experienced triathletes, road racers and time trialers seeking maximum aero performance and stability.

WHY DID WE MAKE IT? – We made the SES 7.8 to achieve two things: more speed and more stability. The ENVE 7.8 embodies the latest SES technologies and includes our newest moulded in brake track and tubeless clincher tyre compatibility. The SES 7.8 is wider and specifically optimised to perform best when used with a modern aero frame and large 25mm tyres.

When the race is against the wind and the clock the ENVE 7.8 is optimised for the task. By reducing the tradeoffs between aerodynamics, stability, weight, and stiffness, the SES 7.8 carbon fibre aero wheel is the perfect tool for road racing and triathlon alike. The SES 7.8 features asymmetric rim geometries front to back. The front rim is 71mm deep and 29mm wide while the rear rims is 80mm deep and 27.5 mm wide. The dissimilar rim geometries improve the efficiency of the airflow in the system of bike frame and wheels. Because running 25mm tyres is now standard, the ENVE 7.8 was designed with larger tyres in mind. Additionally, frame manufacturers are now producing frames that have more clearance between wheels and frames which has opened up the design scope for a wheelset. The SES 7.8 is optimised for these frames. In addition to changes in shape and structure, the SES 7.8 features the latest molded in carbon fiber brake track texture and is compatible with road tubeless tyres. The SES 7.8 when built with the ENVE Carbon Road Hub comes in at a weight of 1562 grams making it a viable choice for courses that feature flat to hilly terrain.
