ENVE 7.8 Disc Carbon Clincher Rim
|Availability:||Out of stock|
As the cycling industry embraces road disc brake technology, component manufacturers are challenged to stay ahead of the curve. In this regard, Enve Composites is no slouch. With the release of these 7.8 disc rims, their model line features five matched rim sets optimized for use with road disc brake technology. These rims are not simply rehashed versions of their rim brake counterparts; a complete reconsideration of the 7.8 platform allowed Enve's engineers to tweak the rim shape and carbon layup schedule to suit the increased torsional forces and changed aerodynamics these rims will encounter on modern road or TT/Triathlon disc bikes. As with all rims in Enve's SES line, the 7.8s have been designed for maximum aerodynamic efficiency in real-world conditions, with unique staggered profiles for the front and rear rims. Enve draws upon their in-house design experience and extensive wind tunnel testing to ensure that their wheels are the fastest in the world. As Enve's deepest option, 7.8 Disc rims are most likely to be found on time trial and triathlon "super bikes," but could also be a viable option for powerful road cyclists who desire the ultimate weapon in the fight against the wind.
7.8 Disc rims are equipped with a tubeless-ready rim bed profile, allowing for the use of either standard tire-and-tube combinations, or the increasingly popular road tubeless tire designs. Silca valve extenders and a complete tubeless upgrade kit are included to accommodate either of these options. Both rims are aerodynamically optimized for use with 700x25c tires.
All Enve rims are proudly manufactured in Ogden, Utah, U.S.A.
