Steven had previously purchased a set of custom hand built ENVE SES 8.9 clinchers with red Chris King R45 hubs. He uses them for Ironman and triathlon competitions. This fall, he ordered this set. Sticking with the same red CK R45 hubs, he chose the very balance all-rounder ENVE SES 4.5 clincher rim, a new model for 2015. This rim is a great balance between aero and weight and this build, with Sapim CX-Ray spokes comes in at a hair over 1500 grams. For an aero clincher set with Chris King hubs this is a very good weight.
Steven said his 8.9s have been great. I’m always happy when I hear about satisfied customers. That never gets old. I hope Steven enjoys this wheel set as much as he’s enjoyed the ENVE 8.9s.
