Disc brake technology offers improved braking per-formance for amateur and professional road cyclists alike. As a wheel manufacturer, carbon fiber rim braking surfaces are a major design constraint that limits weight savings and rim shape. By removing the constraints of a braking surface, we are allowed to completely rethink the shape of the rim and more specifically the brake track area. The SES 5.6 Disc features the patented SES rim curvature but it can now be further optimized for aerodynamics since the braking surface has been eliminated. Additionally, the SES 5.6 Disc carbon fiber clinchers are very light weight because the material used for heat management has been eliminated. This allows us to focus more material into making the rim more structurally efficient and impact resistant. Finally, the SES 5.6 Disc carbon clincher is road tubeless compatible or it can be run with stan-dard inner-tubes and tires. Like the current generation SES carbon clinchers and tubulars, the 5.6 Disc has been aerodynamically optimized around the fast rolling 25mm tires on the market like the Continental GP and Schwalbe One series tires.
