The barrage of new aero equipment rolls on, with the release of the ENVE SES 7.8, which will see live fire this weekend on the bikes of roughly a dozen pro riders at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. Dubbed its fastest and most advanced wheelset, the 7.8’s front wheel is 72mm deep, 29mm wide external. In back it measures 80mm deep, 27.5mm wide external. Both wheels have a 19mm inner depth. This, claims ENVE, creates more efficient airflow, yet is still easy to control in crosswinds.

In honor of this weekend's Ironman World Championships, ENVE is offering this limited edition graphics package.
