AERO FOR ALL ROADS
The SES 4.5 AR is an uncompromising aero wheel designed specifically for disc brake equipped bikes and large volume 27 to 30mm tubeless road tires.
Rebellious, unconventional, and pioneering are words that describe the one of its kind SES 4.5 AR. Conceptualized for the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix through our partnership with Team Dimension Data, the SES 4.5 AR was developed to deliver top shelf aero performance, stability, and comfort for virtually any road surface. The SES 4.5 AR is available as a tubeless clincher and tubular model rim.
The SES 4.5 AR borrows from ENVE M Series carbon mountain wheel tubeless technology and features hookless beads. Hookless beads improve aerodynamic performance by aiding airflow from tire to rim as well as allow for the best tubeless tire performance possible. Like all Smart ENVE System aero wheels, the front and rear rims are specifically designed for the airflow seen at the front and back of the bike. As such, the front rim is more shallow and wider to maximize stability and the rear is deeper and narrower to aid in drag reduction. In addition to dissimilar geometries, the SES 4.5 AR features a disc brake specific construction that saves weight, improves strength, and creates an unprecedented ride quality.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
