When you ride a pair of wheels like the Enve SES 3.4 for disc brakes, it’s hard to imagine anyone would still hold out against disc brakes on road bikes. Light, responsive, durable, these are wheels that can open up a world of opportunities.

Enve does sponsor a WorldTour team, so they know a thing or two about creating great wheelsets for racing situations. And though disc wheels are slowly making an appearance in the professional peloton, they are becoming more and more common for the rest of us because they are so practical, and because the SES 3.4 are amazingly well designed and crafted wheels. As a member of the SES rubric, these disc brake wheels offer many of the same benefits that the rim brake version has. So you’ll enjoy lightweight climbing capabilities with exceptional aerodynamic performance. They can do that inspite of the fact that these wheels have a fairly low profile – with a 38mm depth in the front and a slightly deeper 42mm in the rear, you can count on keeping control on the gusty descents. Yet they remain superiorly aero thanks to the optimized rim shaping.

That means if you have a new Colnago or Pinarello racing bike with disc brakes, then you can stick a pair of these on and experience all the thrills of a lightweight racing bike with the added benefit of the exceptional braking power disc brakes guarantee. But since these are also seriously durable road wheels, you can stick them on your new gravel or endurance oriented bike and use them to cross continents. The rims have an internal width of 21mm and external of 27.5, which Enve says makes the perfect aero storm when paired with 25mm tires. Now, if you want to go bigger than that for your tires, then Enve recommends you consider their SES 4.5 AR disc that have been optimized for 28-30mm tires. It’s best to keep in mind that these SES 3.4 are wheels for people who want it all – lightweight performance with versatile capabilities – but value the weight savings over any rough road or gravel potential. And remember, the Strade Bianche race in Italy is routinely won on 25mm tires.

Though the SES 3.4 rim brake version is a great wheel, Enve went back to the drawing board when making the disc brake version. Without having to worry about the braking track, they could tear up the rulebook and ended up making a rim that is even lighter. It’s a good thing Enve already had a ton of experience designing their mountain bike wheels, so they knew what they were doing when taking on this challenge. That means that the lateral stiffness of the Enve SES 3.4 for disc brakes is insane. Accelerations, which can be a bit of a chore on a heavier, ponderous disc wheel, are so fast and responsive with this wheelset. And since both front and rear have 24 spoke count, you can count on the wheels being more than up to any braking forces the discs will introduce.

The Enve SES 3.4 for disc brakes come in a clincher version that is tubeless compatible. And really, Enve doesn’t know why anyone would roll with anything but a tubeless set up. With the wider rims, tubeless tires are no longer impossible to mount, and you will get the benefit of the lower rolling resistance, better cornering, tubular road feel, greater comfort and exceptional puncture resistance. If that all just sounds great, but seems like you’d be stuck in the middle of no where once you do flat, just remember to carry a little bottle of sealant and a tiny valve wrench in your saddle bag or back pocket, and all but some enormous sidewall gashes can be closed up lickety-split.

The Enve SES 3.4 for disc brakes will be the perfect wheelset for any rider who values lightweight, high performance wheels, and wants to have the added benefit and practicality of disc brakes.
