(54mm front/63mm rear rim depth)
Enve has cemented its position at the top of the high-end wheel pile via an attention to detail and an uncompromising product. The SES 5.6 is the culmination of that for triathletes. This new tubeless-ready combo, a 54mm front and 63mm rear, is ideal for pretty much all courses—windy, hilly, or flat. The Chris King hubs on this configuration help make this wheelset one of the best tested for slicing through corners, and the textured braking surface—when used with proper pads—gives even-braking confidence on descents. A fairly wide and well-positioned rim (29mm front, 28mm rear) means that aero is still king without getting so big it won’t fit most frames/forks. For furious descenders who want an all-rounder, look no further.
