Enve releases flagship SES 5.6 rim brake wheels

New wider wheels are designed for wider tubeless or tubular tyres

Underpinning Team Dimension Data’s performance in the Tour de France, the new Enve SES 5.6 is a medium depth aero wheelset, available as a tubular and a clincher. At 29mm wide by 54mm deep, the front rim is wider and shallower for crosswind stability. Meanwhile, the rear rim is narrower and deeper at 28mm wide by 63mm deep for better drag reduction.
