ENVE’s SES 7.8
The latest in ENVE’s SES line, the 7.8, is the fastest wheel ENVE has ever made. At the heart of the SES line is the simple acknowledgment that the demands placed upon the front wheel are very different from those placed upon the rear. SES wheels use a shallower and wider front wheel, where stability is as important as aerodynamics, and a deeper, narrower rear wheel, to focus on reducing drag.

There is only two days left in Le Tour, but new goods are still flooding our doorstep. From the Peloton Paddock this week is a Tour de France inspired watch from the official timekeepers of the race, Tissot, a teaser video from Sidi displaying a new closure system and a limited edition Rio inspired Olympic collection from Oakley.
