Smart as the Enve 6.7 wheelset only lighter and shallower. The Enve Smart System 3.4 takes the lightweight carbon all purpose race wheel to another level. Stiffness, weight and aerodynamics are all addressed by the new design as well as one of the biggest issues with carbon rims finally put to rest with the new Enve carbon brake surface.
The DT Swiss 180 Ceramic hubs take this wheelset to a whole new level with the lightest smoothest hubs on the market.
The new Smart ENVE System 3.4s are specifically designed as a multi-purpose wheelset that can be used in virtually all weather conditions, terrains and disciplines. The 3.4s, being shallower, offer maximum performance characteristics for professional and novice riders alike in mountainous terrain, or when the wind conditions are too strong for the 6.7s. The 3.4 wheel system is capable of producing very low drag numbers while creating a higher stability index given its shallower depth. The front rim is 26mm wide and 35mm deep while the rear is 24mm wide and 45mm deep.
This is by far the most important variable, and it has taken extensive research to define a wheel shape that is both fast and stable. All three wheel systems have a very similar level of stability, and are optimized for speed and ride ability... Read more
