4.5 RIM SHAPE EXPLAINED
Perhaps the ultimate all-round, high performance wheelset, the 4.5 debuted the second generation SES profile. It delivers outright class-leading speed while retaining a very low weight and incredible stability. No wonder it’s the go-to wheel for Team Dimension Data.

The all-new SES rim profile has a significantly revised curvature and increased widths that are optimized for 25mm tires in modern frames with greater clearances. This allows air to flow smoothly over the rim – it remains ‘attached’ – even at high crosswind angles and to reattach quicker after a strong side gust. These important advances make the 4.5 both extremely fast and stable for its depth. In challenging conditions, wind-steer is all but eliminated and side force builds and releases smoothly and predictably, so you can ride and race with complete confidence.

How fast is the 4.5? Compared to the first line of SES wheels, the 4.5 essentially matches the aerodynamics of the older 6.7, which was itself ballistic yet much deeper at 60mm front and 70mm rear, and of course heavier with it. Nothing of a similar depth or weight gets close to the speed of the 4.5.

NEED TO KNOW:
• Class leading aerodynamics and weight
• Incredible stability in gusty conditions
• Second generation SES rim profile
• All-new rim profiles of 48 and 56mm
• Optimized width for 25mm tires

ROAD TUBELESS BY DESIGN
The All-Road version of the 4.5 was designed for the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix and for just about anywhere you care to point it, from gravel to dirt to bad, old roads. While the pros still ride tubulars, for everyone else taking on varied surfaces tubeless is a no-brainer because you can run lower pressures and achieve greater comfort, grip and, with sealant, resistance to pinch and debris punctures, all without sacrificing speed.

Drawing on our experience designing and making the world’s best mountain bike rims, the SES 4.5 AR Disc features a hookless bead profile and tire-bed bead seat lock. This design prevents air loss from impacts or aggressive cornering loads, allows for an exacting tire and rim interface, improves air flow from tire to rim and saves weight. Non-tubeless clincher tires are not recommended but tubeless tires can still be used with tubes.

ENVE recognized early that road tubeless technology is here to stay. With rims going wider and frames giving more tire clearance, the key aspects of bike design were aligned to make tubeless the best choice: wider rims make it easier to mount tubeless tires. Disc brakes add even more benefits for tubeless, typically allowing larger tires as well as removing issues of heat at the rim.

NEED TO KNOW:
• Dedicated hookless rim design for tubeless
• Prevents air loss from impacts or cornering
• Lighter and more aero than traditional carbon rim brake clincher rims
• Can be used with inner tubes, in tubeless tires only
• Faster rolling
• Higher grip
• Greater comfort
• Outstanding puncture resistance

DISC-SPECIFIC CONSTRUCTION
At ENVE, we do a lot more than just slap decals over the brake track and lace the same rim to a disc hub. Drawing on our expertise gained developing the world’s best mountain bike wheels, our disc-specific road rims are fully optimized for the format. Freed from the constraints of a heat-proof carbon braking surface, the optimal construction of a road wheel can be reconsidered. The result is a rim that is even lighter, stronger and faster than our standard-setting, group test-winning rim brake wheels.
Carbon brake tracks dictate a lot of rim design. By taking them away and re-engineering the rim we have improved the lateral stiffness, the impact resistance and the weight by 40-60g per rim. While disc hubs mean that total wheelset weights will remain near identical between rim and disc brake wheelsets, the disc brake wheelset will feel more responsive in acceleration, steering and braking because the mass has been shifted from the rim (higher rotational inertia) to the hub (lower rotational inertia).

Need to know:
• Disc-specific construction with no brake tracks
• Rims are lighter by 40-60g per rim
• Impact resistance increased
• Greater lateral stiffness
