WHAT IS IT? A climbing wheel with an aero advantage, designed to be ridden in the mountains.
WHO IS IT FOR? Road cyclists who require maximum versatility for riding in mountainous terrain and variable weather conditions.
WHY DID WE MAKE IT? Since the introduction of the original SES 3.4 we've implemented new design concepts across the SES lineup that result in a faster wheel and improved ride experience. The SES 3.4 features road tubeless compatibility, 25mm tire optimization, molded carbon brake track technology, and optimized SES aero rim shaping to ensure maximum efficiencies for a shallow aero wheel. Equally at home in the mountains as in the valleys, the SES 3.4 is the most versatile Smart ENVE System aero wheel.

ENVE is located in Ogden, Utah which features the Wasatch Mountain Range to the East and Western Desert to the West. This geographic location is diverse and we wanted to make a wheelset that provides aero performance and stability over all types of terrains and through all weather conditions. The 3.4 is light weight and relatively shallow which makes managing big mountain passes and gusty canyon winds a breeze. Over rolling and flat terrain the Smart ENVE System aero technologies come into play reducing drag and improving efficiencies.
