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.
The wheels are also tubeless ready, have a molded break track texture for optimal stopping power, and are optimized for aero frames and 25mm tires, which are more comfortable and have lower rolling resistance. Claimed wheelset weight is 1562 grams. Price starts at $2700
ENVE has also launched a special limited edition graphics package for the occasion. These wheelsets are first come, first serve and once they are gone, ENVE will not be producing any more. Price is $3500. Learn more at enve.com.
