A climbing wheel with an aero advantage, designed to be ridden in the mountains.

Road cyclists who require maximum versatility for riding in mountainous terrain and variable weather conditions.

Since the introduction of the original SES 3.4 we’’ve implemented new design concepts across the SES lineup that result in a faster wheel and improved ride experience. The SES 3.4 features road tubeless compatibility, 25mm tire optimization, molded carbon brake track technology, and optimized SES aero rim shaping to ensure maximum efficiencies for a shallow aero wheel. Equally at home in the mountains as in the valleys, the SES 3.4 is the most versatile Smart ENVE System aero wheel.

“The best all-round wheelset I’ve ridden. It’s never the wrong wheel.”

-Bikeradar

“Light, fast, stiff, good braking, unaffected by crosswinds… the new ENVE SES 3.4 wheels are exceptional.”

-BR

Since its introduction in 2009, the Smart ENVE System 3.4 has established itself as ENVE’s most versatile and consequently most popular carbon fiber aero road wheelset amongst road cyclists of all abilities. As such, it’s no surprise that ENVE’s first stage victory at the Tour de France was delivered by Steve Cummings aboard the SES 3.4. The SES 3.4 is wider than its predecessor (29mm wide external, 21mm internal) to improve rolling resistance and improve aerodynamics for use with 25mm tires. In addition to added width, the versatile and reliable nature of the SES 3.4 has been augmented by incorporating road tubeless tire compatibility. Road tubeless compatibility means improved rolling resistance, comfort, traction, and a reduced propensity for flat tires. Like all SES wheel models, the SES 3.4 features dissimilar rim shapes and geometries between front and back wheels to maximize aerodynamic efficiency and rideability in variable wind and weather conditions. The front rim is 38mm deep and shallower than the rear rim to aid in cross wind stability while rear rim is 42mm deep and therefore improves overall airflow attachment. For riding in mountainous terrain where heavy braking is required, the SES 3.4 features a high temperature resistant resin system and ENVE’s molded in brake track technology to ensure rim integrity and precision braking when and where it is needed most, in mountainous terrain.
