Enve SES 5.6 Carbon Clincher Road Wheelset - Chris King R45 Ceramic Hubs
What t is
The SES 5.6 is the evolution of the proven SES 4.5. By implementing the latest SES technologies, the SES 5.6 is not only faster than its predecessor, but also more stable and confidence inspiring in challenging wind conditions. Other changes include tubeless tire compatibility for improved traction, rolling efficiency, and fewer flat tires.
Who it’s for
Road racers and triathletes looking to maximize speed and efficiency through class leading aerodynamics paired with rolling resistance defying road tubeless technology.
Why we made it?
The SES 4.5 has been a staple in the Smart ENVE System family of wheels since its launch in 2014. Since then, nearly everything in road racing has changed; among them, the realization that more volume can equate to more speed and efficiency on the road. The SES 5.6 is road tubeless compatible and embodies the spirit of the SES 4.5 by taking its position in the SES lineup as the best road racing wheelset on the market. While disc brakes are commonplace on the road, we acknowledge that they’re not necessary or desired by everyone. For the rim brake rider looking for uncompromised braking performance, our textured full carbon brake track features industry leading heat resistance, uncontested stopping power, and modulation in wet or dry weather conditions. By employing the latest Smart ENVE System aero technologies, the SES 5.6 is faster, more stable, and designed to seamlessly pair with modern road bikes to improve your performance and ride experience.

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.
