ENVE Wheelset 28 "Road SES 2.2 NBT Clincher | Chris King R45 Ceramic Hubs
ENVE products have experienced a rapid rise in the world of cycling. They have even been tested on the big tours, such as the Tour de France or the Vuelta in Spain. The specialists for carbon from the USA develop for professionals and other dedicated cyclists only the uncompromisingly best attachments.
The SES 2.2 wheelset is designed for riders who feel comfortable in mountainous terrain. He is light, stiff and stable. But the aerodynamics has also received attention. The developers spent many hours in the wind tunnel until the final shape of the rim was firm. Together with the Chris King hubs and the Sapim spokes you will have a lot of fun with him.
ENVE SES 2.2 NBT rims
ENVE carbon rims are engineered by ENVE in the US and manufactured to the highest quality standards at the Utah headquarters. Engineers at ENVE have years of experience using carbon in the field of cycling and know what needs to be met by a top product like these carbon rims. At ENVE, everything is focused on harnessing the benefits of carbon and eliminating its disadvantages. So stiff and extremely light rim were developed in which all fibers can run without interruption which corresponds to the best possible utilization of the material thicknesses. This principle was perfected in the spoke holes by continuous fiber strands form the mount for the spoke nipples. Aluinserts, as they are common with other carbon rims, can therefore be dispensed with during production. This reduces the weight and at the same time allows much higher spoke tensions which in turn allow the construction of stiffer wheels.
The rim features an all-carbon NBT braking surface with a textured surface that provides unbelievably high, consistent braking performance in both wet and dry conditions and reduces leverage on the levers by up to 30%.
Hubs Chris King R45 Ceramic
CHRIS KING hubs depends on a certain myth. They have been almost unchanged on the market for years and yet they do not belong to the old iron. Thanks to the proven technical interior, continuous development in detail and distinctive look, they have become a cult object.
When the engineers of Chris King started to develop the R45, everything started under the motto "light & fast". It was haggled at every detail and the result is impressive. Not only is it lighter than its predecessor, it is also much stiffer thanks to the 17 mm axle .
The unmistakable sound of the freewheel is the hallmark of the rear wheel hub. It is generated by the 45 grid points of the stainless steel toothed disc. Through this 3-part RingDrive ? system, every step, without a large free travel, immediately converted into propulsion.
The heart of the hub are the ceramic ball bearings. They have the ultimate in smooth running and a virtually unlimited life. These are also developed and produced directly by Chris King. Thus, they can be adapted to the specific loads and forces. Due to the multiple seal penetration of water or dirt is almost impossible. The setting of the bearing clearance is very simple and can also be carried out when installed. With the help of the Chris King hub tool kit, which can be purchased as an option, replacing the bearings and maintaining the hub is child's play.
Spokes Sapim CX-Ray
Sapim CX-Ray spokes are so-called knife spokes. The middle part is butted during production to 1.5 mm diameter and flat forged in the last step. These processes provide a solidification of the structure and produce extremely durable spokes.
