WHAT IT IS?
The SES 4.5 AR Disc is an uncompromising aero wheel designed specifically for disc brake equipped bikes and large volume 28 to 30mm road tires.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Cyclists looking for more speed, comfort, and traction on all road surfaces will find the SES 4.5 AR Disc a game-changer.
WHY WE MADE IT?
The introduction of road frames with disc brakes and increased tire clearance has allowed us to take an unconventional approach to wheel design. The result is a wheel that brings new levels of confidence and performance to the road cycling experience.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
Rebellious, unconventional, and pioneering are words that describe the one of its kind SES 4.5 AR Disc. Conceptualized for the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix through our partnership with Team Dimension Data, the SES 4.5 AR Disc was developed to deliver top shelf aero performance, stability, and comfort for virtually any road surface. The SES 4.5 AR Disc is available as a tubeless clincher and tubular model rim. The SES 4.5 AR Disc 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 Disc features a disc brake specific construction that saves weight, improves strength, and creates an unprecedented ride quality.

Use tires listed as “Approved/Recommended” only with SES AR road wheelsets. For tires listed as “Not Approved/Incompatible” we are working with the tire manufacturers so changes can be made to move tires on to the “Approved/Recommended” list. If a tire you would like to run is not listed, it does not mean that it is incompatible. Rather, we have not tested it yet. In the situation that you choose to run a tire that is not on the “Approved/Recommended” list, you do so at your own risk.
Please refer to our tire pressure recommendation chart for SES 3.4 AR and SES 4.5 AR (25mm Internal Rim Width) wheelsets and never exceed air pressure of 80psi/5.5bar for 28c, and 67psi/4.6bar for 32c.
