2017, Enve , SES 7.8 Disc



Though it took a few years for aero and triathlon bike designers to get their heads around using disc brakes on their beautifully aerodynamic frames, disc brakes have definitely begun to be super common, and amazingly efficient even on the most aerodynamically oriented bikes. And since the Enve SES 7.8 wheels for disc brakes have to be considered among the most amazingly fantastic aero wheels on the market, you’ll definitely want to scope these out when purchasing your next pair of wheels.

Where Enve has been very clever is taking a look at how they could completely redesign the carbon rim layup since they no longer had a brake track to worry about. Eliminating the braking surface opens up tons of opportunities for innovations both in an aerodynamic sense and in a weight distribution and stiffness. That means that the SES 7.8 Disc rims are actually 40 to 60g lighter than the rim brake version, though the disc hub pretty much cancels out any weight savings you could measure on a scale. Nevertheless, it still means that in terms of rotational weight, these wheels have their rim brake twins beat since the disc weight will be centered much closer to the hub, keeping the rotational weight lower and increasing the responsive feeling of the wheels.

The SES 7.8 Disc features patented SES rim curvature that has been optimized for disc brakes. When applying their SES design technology, they were able to take into account that there was no need for a brake track anymore. That means they were able to focus on optimizing the rim shaping to ensure a maximum of aerodynamic performance no matter the direction of the wind. So the SES 7.8 makes use of the asymmetric rim geometries in the front to back that have come to define the SES designs. That means the front rim is 71mm deep and 29mm wide while the rear rims is 78mm deep and 27.5 mm wide. The dissimilar rim geometries improve the efficiency of the airflow when taking into account how the frame and wheels interact in the air. Enve has made both front and back with an internal rim width of 19mm best paired with a 25mm tires. The rim is also tubeless compatible, which will allow you to get all the benefits of a tubular with none of the gluing hassle.

Whether you are looking to professionalize your triathlon setup, or have some serious Strava PR goals on your local rides, the Enve SES 7.8 wheels for disc brakes are fast, responsive, stable and, at around 1650g, surprisingly light for how deep they are. They are pro quality wheels that can be equally enjoyed by those of us who simply love to go fast.
