In the near future, disc brakes will appear on the most aerodynamic bikes in the world, and the SES 7.8 is here for when that happens. While most wheel manufactur-ers simply repurpose their rim brake optimized wheel models into disc brake wheels by covering brake tracks with decals and adding spokes, this leaves substantial amounts of performance on the table. By removing the constraints of a braking surface on the rim, we are allowed to completely rethink the shape of the rim and more specifically the brake track area itself. The SES 7.8 Disc features our patented SES rim curvature that has been optimized for disc brakes. Additionally, the SES 7.8 Disc carbon fiber clinchers and tubulars are much lighter because the material used for heat management has been eliminated. With no braking surface, the rim can be made more aerodynamically efficient and impact resistant. Finally, the SES 7.8 carbon clincher is road tubeless compatible or it can be run with standard inner-tubes and tires. Like the current generation SES carbon clinchers and tubulars, the SES 7.8 Disc has been aerodynamically optimized around the fast rolling 25mm tires.
