Enve SES LE MFS

This June, ENVE has partnered up with the crew from Manual For Speed to deliver a unique duo of wheels and riding gear that will distinguish you from the rest. This bundle includes a limited edition ENVE SES 5.6 Disc wheelset, along with a custom designed Castelli kit. The design is based on the concept of light speed itself, turning the rider into a metaphorical blue bullet!

Flash past the break to see what else is included in this unique package…

The elaborate design of the wheelset  is matched with a custom Castelli Kit available in sizes ranging from extra small to extra extra large. Rather than using the white and black color scheme from the wheels, the colors of choice for the kit are blue and black which provide additional contrast. Don’t worry about your head missing out because accompanying the jersey and bibs is a limited edition ENVE 5-panel hat.

The ENVE SES 5.6 Disc wheelset is sporting a Chris King R45 Centerlock wheelset with ceramic bearings and thru axle end caps. All topped off with carbon tubeless ready rims that offer a wider rim profile, provide an excellent choice for those riding roads, triathlons, and gravel. Laced up, the total wheel weight comes in at 1568 grams. For added protection and longevity, the wheelset is shipped with one of ENVE’s Double Wheelbags, and extra Limited Edition wheel decals. Bundled all together, the group is running a total of $3,400.  Quantities are limited, sold on a first come first served basis, so be sure to check this deal out before it gets away.

I’d buy the kit in a heartbeat if it was sold separately.

Wow, Enve has really, and truly, finally jumped the shark 🙁

If you would be so kind to look up the definition of ‘jumping the shark’ it’s safe to say; you don’t know what you’re talking about. Weak attempt at trolling.

“The usage of “jump the shark” has subsequently broadened beyond television, indicating the moment when a brand, design, franchise, or creative effort’s evolution declines”

I don’t necessarily agree that this is the pivotal moment of Enve’s decline, that they’re using a branding gimmick to keep the markets interest as their evolution has stagnated, but if Paul’s believes it the idiom is applicable.

I was speaking specifically about how the graphics are applied to the rim and not Enve graphics on a Zipp wheelset which I think is what you thought I said. Hehe. Zipp’s got that Zipp ImPress process whereas Enve just applies decals.

I have both too. Also got Lightweights and Reynolds but I also prefer my Enve SES 4.5 wheelset over them as my everyday training wheel. However my favourite wheels are my Dura Ace 9000 C50 tubulars. I got a soft spot for the C50 graphics & laser-etched spokes. Hehe.

I really hate that every new ENVE wheel I’ve unboxed has needed truing before hitting the sales floor. I have NEVER trued a new Zipp or HED wheel.

Woah, you may want to let Enve know about that! I have the exact opposite experience, especially with ZIpp. Our shop moves a lot of Enve and for the last few years I’m having to correct 2 maybe 3 Enve wheels out of a hundred on average every year. The rest are custom builds and have yet to see either come back for a true. Zipp on the other hand can’t hold true because their rims are rated to only 90kgf. That’s weak, brother.

That’s an internal rating from the company. I’ve trued many ENVE wheels over and over again for 70kg riders. I would never buy them, even with the great deals they offer. At least they’re wider now but that’s not keeping them tru at all.
They’re localish to me but as a salesperson and mechanic, I’d recommend them last out of the three bigger companies based in the US

Without proof, Veganpotter, your claim is not superior to Flickitov’s. Anecdotal evidence is not evidence.

Never mind the bloody kit, look at the wheels! They are so freaking light that they are floating in the air! Put on Enve wheels on your bike and make it lighter than without wheels!

They look horrible. Like the new guy at the graphics department had his design completed before his boss could see his work. What’s the deal with all these busy graphics these days?
