The next level.

ENVE has quickly established itself as the industry standard. Its passion for perfection and innovation is unmatched. The SES 6.7 Carbon Road Wheelset is a perfect example of this obsession. ENVE could have taken the easy road with its aero road rims and just sold them as a pair of rims. Instead, it built a front-specific and rear-specific rim to account for the role that the wind plays on each wheel. In the end, what ENVE created was an extremely aerodynamic wheelset that maintains incredible stability in real-world wind conditions, so you can slice through the air without having to compensate on gusty days to maintain a steady line.

As you might have guessed, ENVE’s front rim is a bit shallower than the rear rim to reduce the effects of crosswinds on your straight-line stability. The front and rear rims are 60mm and 70mm deep, respectively. The front rim is also slightly wider than the rear rim to improve aerodynamics. At 26mm and 24mm, both rims take advantage of the new trend toward wider, more aerodynamic wheels. Spoke count is also different, with 20 in the front and 24 in the rear, where more force is applied to the wheel during riding.

What about the hub? You have your choice between two industry legends—the DT Swiss 240s or the Chris King D45. While the DT Swiss will save you a few bucks, either hub will provide incredible performance for years of riding.

  • Front-specific rim (60mm deep, 26mm wide)
  • Rear-specific rim (70mm deep, 24mm wide)
  • Enhanced wind stability
  • Industry’s highest strength-to-weight ratio
  • Textured braking surface

Indestructible! I live by this stuff.

I own a pair of these and have raced, trained, and even commuted on them for some time now. I crashed on these pretty bad last year during a crit. A fellow sprinter and I came together at the finish and his foot went through my wheel, breaking half or more the spokes and my leaving my wheel seemingly destroyed. After some photos shared to enve and a quick chat, Enve made it known to my shop / mechanic that these wheels are known to come back from some major "out of true" situations. My wheel was more than 5" out from end to end. No one thought twice about them being repairable. A handful of new spokes and whalaaa. I been racing on them all season since..

superb race wheels

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used these wheel just on race days, and in a few hillier Tri's. After riding Zipps for many years the Enve have taken over as my favorite race wheels. Safe to race for even a smaller rider in crosswinds, one of the few deeper race wheels I would feel comfortable on in the winds. For me personally on some races that had a lot of climbing I preferred the 3.4's but rode the 6.7's in more races overall. They are very stiff and will get up to speed quickly which I think can be an issue as you get to a deeper dished wheel. They absorb the road chatter you get on poor pavement and are solid on high speed descents. The Enve 6.7 is definitely on my top 5 list of wheels and probably in the top 2, if I had to own one wheel set for racing-training, I would run with these in a clincher. I'm happy to answer any other questions on these or help out with shipping discounts, kylebrown@backcountry.com

Does the Chris King R45 option come with ceramic bearings?

Responded on

The Chris King hubs don?t come Ceramic and we actually find the ceramic bearings wear much faster (and Kings have much more drag than DT) so I?d suggest looking at the DT 240 wheels if you want lower rolling resistance or even special ordering the wheels with DT 180 hubs if you want ceramic. Give me a shout directly if you want to place an order or have other questions.

Amazing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have made several upgrades in the past decade, but nothing has given me the "Steve Jobs" child-like sense of wonder like these wheels. They fly on the flats, obviously, they are more susceptible to cross winds than the marketing would suggest, but what nobody seems to tell you is that they climb like 140 pound PRO tour specialist. They are so stiff, so responsive, and so adept at converting your effort into speed on the road. The cost is for one of those rare products still made with special care and with integrity. Their warranty is unmatched, and for me, it means that they are willing to stand by their product. Enjoy friends!

Simply Fantastic!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used ZIPP 404 Tubular Firecrest, which BTW were great wheels, but got tired of gluing and dishing out $100+ when sealer wouldn't hold after a flat.

After reading numerous reviews and talking with guys who have raced on them I decided to take the plunge. Since I already have a 1200g set of light all-around wheels I opted for the 6.7 instead of the 3.4 to deal with fast flat & rolling rides here in North Texas.

My first set arrived with molding imperfections in the lip of the side wall which anchors the bead of the clincher. Of course this kind of thing can happen during the molding/layup process, and CC (like always) took care of it, by sending me a replacement ASAP.

I paired them with Vittoria Open Corsa EVO CX III tires and their latex tubes. First ride impressions...WOW! The DFW area is quite windy and this day was no exception, 15-20mph winds with 30mph gusts. Honestly I was a bit concerned that these were too deep for the conditions.

I was amazed at how stable these wheels were given all the wind. It seems like they were trying to self correct in the crosswinds. I know that sounds crazy, but they just wanted to stay straight with little input...very, very stable!

Speed, these things are fast and feel much faster than their spec weight. I expected them to be slower on take-off, but was pleasantly surprised. In my opinion, they far surpass the 404's in this department. Out of the saddle, they gain speed with lightening quickness (no loss of power). You'll cruise at 25mph effortlessly while your buddies are struggling to keep up. The 6.7s hold their speed Very Well!

They're no slouch when climbing short, punchy hills either, and eat up rolling terrain with ease. Braking in dry is better than any other carbon wheel I've ridden.

I have been using them exclusively for the past year, all conditions including rain, and can honestly say that they are a masterpiece. I was skeptical at first, but now realize that they are "Worth the Hype"

Simply Fantastic!

Abosoluty Bullet Proof

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A+ I use these as an "All-Around" solution. Daily commutes and daily training as well as Century rides. Not only are they tough as nails but once you get them spinning they give you that feeling that they want to just keep on going faster & faster..

As for wind, I ride them in Austin Tx. It's windy here in the winter months and I haven't noticed any problems riding them in 10-20mph X-winds.

Did I mention someone actually fell down onto my bike and landed on the back wheel with full body force (Butt first onto the spokes and rim-wall) and it didn't even phase them.

Great job ENVE

made me a believer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought the wheels for the simple reason that I wanted them. I did not expect them to make me faster, etc. Having said that, they do seem to be faster than my older (non-aero) wheels. It's hard to quantify, but the PR's are coming steadily on routes I've ridden for multiple years and many times.

I had no experience with carbon or aero wheels, and these wheels do feel different. The ride is slightly more harsh due to the deep section, but not overly so. I've read that people feel the 6.7s are easier to maintain speed with. That's subjective at this point but I would have to agree.

I haven't noticed any issues climbing, but even at 1500 plus grams these wheels are lighter than what I'm used to by 200-300 grams so that's not surprising.

Very happy with the purchase!

**I have the wheels built with Chris King R45 hubs.
