ENVE took a unique approach in their development of the System 4.5 rims, collaborating with aerodynamicist Simon Smart to design a wheelset using front and rear specific rim shapes to optimize the interaction between wheels and frame.  The goal was to create an integrated system, taking into account the fact that front and rear wheels are not affected by wind in the same manner.

The new Smart ENVE System 4.5s are specifically designed as a multi-purpose wheelset that can be used in virtually all weather conditions, terrains and disciplines. The 4.5s offer maximum performance characteristics and are ideal when the wind conditions are too strong for the 6.7s but you want something more aerodynamic than the 3.4 wheel system. The 4.5 is capable of producing very low drag numbers while providing the best lateral stiffness of any Smart ENVE Systems wheel model. Additionally, the SES 4.5 features a refined shape and construction that yields better acceleration, cornering, impact resistance, and weight savings. For road racers and triathletes looking for a perfect balance between aero performance and stability over all terrains and weather conditions, look no further than the SES 4.5.

Due to our international distribution agreement with Enve, we are no longer able to deliver Enve rims to customers outside of the United States or Puerto Rico.

Wheelbuilder hand builds quality handcrafted precision race wheels using the Smart ENVE System 4.5 rims. Now you can configure your custom Smart ENVE System 4.5 wheels exactly the way you want.

All of the ENVE rims are now using the 2nd generation brake track.

The G2 brake track is much better. They have better stopping power in dry and especially wet conditions and we have not seen issues with any overheating at this point.
