In an attempt to create the ideal aerodynamic road race and triathlon clincher wheelset, Enve Composites has created the SES 7.8 rimset.

Designed to seamlessly integrate with aerodynamic framesets, and ideally paired with larger 25c tires, the SES 7.8 is touted by Enve as their finest aerodynamic rim option for race day roadies, and die-hard triathletes. Utilizing Enve’s venerable asymmetric rim profile, the SES 7.8 features a 71mm x 27mm front rim, coupled with an 80mm x 27.5mm rear rim, producing exceptional results on both flat, and hilly terrain. Additionally equipped with Enve’s redesigned brake track, the SES 7.8 boasts impressive increases to stopping power in both dry and wet conditions, while simultaneously being 100% tubeless compatible. Like all Enve rims, the 7.8 features proprietary molded spoke holes, resulting in a drastic increase in wheel strength.

All Enve rims are proudly manufactured in Ogden, Utah, U.S.A.
