ENVE Wheelset 28 "Road SES 2.2 NBT Clincher | ENVE Carbon 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 ENVE carbon hub and the Sapim spokes you will have a lot of fun with it.
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 such as these carbon rims. At ENVE, everything is focused on harnessing the benefits of carbon and eliminating its disadvantages. Thus, 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%.
Hub ENVE Carbon
A racing bike hub made of 100% carbon, which increases agility, saves weight and increases the wheel stiffness thanks to sophisticated hub flange geometry and the same Einspeichmusters.
Although the new ENVE Carbon Road Hub is based on the first generation, it does not have its constructive weaknesses.
Thus, a new hub body was designed, which provides 16% higher lateral stiffness compared to the predecessor model, thus equaling the best competitors. The newly developed hub flanges avoid premature fatigue of the spokes. Added to this is the special insert for greater rigidity and simultaneous weight savings.
To ensure a smooth, fast rolling action in the Carbon Road hub, it has special, high-quality stainless steel bearing shells and balls that guarantee optimum corrosion protection under all conditions or intended use . The outer bearings are completely sealed to keep out any dirt. In the hub interior, non-contact seals are used to reduce rolling resistance.
The maintenance effort is further minimized thanks to Perfect Preload technology and the service life of the bearings is noticeably longer. Thus, the bearing clearance must be neither adjusted nor readjusted.
The new toothed disc freewheel is now 40 teeth toothed, the predecessor there were only 18 teeth. The toothed disc technology offers compared to the pawl freewheel faster traction, lower weight and ease of maintenance.
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.
ENVE are convinced of the quality of their products and offer the first-time buyer a 5-year warranty from the date of purchase. You only have to register on their website.
