A high performance wheelset from the American cycling experts, the ENVE 7.8 SES Clincher Wheelset with Chris King R45 Hubs lends itself perfectly to the role of giving the maximum aero performance possible whilst also being stable and reliable.

Each 7.8 SES Clincher Wheelset is handmade in Utah, from 100% raw, uni-directional carbon. This keeps the wheels as lightweight but as strong as possible, weighing in at an impressive 1552 grams for the pair, including titanium skewers. Plus, being hand-built in their own factory, ENVE are able to keep a close eye on the production which ensures you always get the very highest quality - guaranteed.
ENVE have gone to the next level to increase this wheelset's rolling speed, aerodynamic performance and reduce its overall weight by using Chris King's renowned R45 hubs.
Featuring ENVE’s latest moulded in carbon brake track texture, the ENVE 7.8 SES Clincher Wheelset's brake surface provides a substantial improvement in stopping power by as much as 30% and performs equally in the wet as in the dry. Perfect for those race days when the weather can’t make its mind up.
The SES Clincher Wheelset features asymmetric rim geometries front to back, with a rear that’s 80mm deep and 27.5mm wide, whilst the front is shaved back to 71mm deep and 29mm wide - done to create a more aerodynamic shape. Optimised for 25mm tyres, you’re sure to see dramatic gains when riding with the ENVE 7.8 Clinchers.
