For the better part of a decade, Enve Composites and Simon Smart have been an unstoppable team of innovators, paving the way for the future of cycling. By utilizing an immense amount of real-world and wind tunnel data, Enve’s SMART system is designed to be the absolute pinnacle of aerodynamic performance, and few can argue against it.

Since the end of 2010, ENVE’s collaboration with Simon Smart has produced a lot of buzz in the cycling community, and the new 2.2 rim is no different. Unlike previous generations of Smart System wheels, the new 2.2 rims feature the same profile front and rear in an effort to make the wheelset as lightweight as possible, while still maintaining an aerodynamic profile and confidence inspiring stability. Designed to be the absolute pinnacle of climbing wheelsets, the ENVE 2.2 has been sculpted into a new profile, while simultaneously utilizing a proprietary molded brake track that boasts an improved braking performance of 30% over previous generations in both dry and wet weather conditions. With a boost in braking performance and predictability, the ENVE 2.2 rims give any rider the confidence they need to descend aggressively. The rim bed has been strengthened with a 3k carbon weave which will resist delamination when removing tires. This change is purely structural as it will be hidden under the tire. The rims maintain the classic ENVE unidirectional carbon style and minimalist decals that exude the subtle elegance ENVE is known for.

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 who also require the performance benefits of tubulars. 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 textured brake track, the SES 7.8 boasts impressive increases to stopping power in both dry and wet conditions.


Each Enve Rim comes with internal brass nipples, a pair of Silca appropriate sized valve extenders, and two pairs of Enve's black brake pads; a 10mm set, and an 8mm set for bicycles with brake clearance problems.

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