The UAE Team Emirates and ENVE partnership will provide the team with a full range of SES tubeless wheels for the upcoming races, i.e. SES 2.3, 3.4, 4.5 and 6.7, as well as Foundation wheels for training.
As for the handlebars, riders will be able to choose between three models: SES Aero Road, SES AR and Compact Road, as well as stems with the In-Route system, also from the American brand, which allows internal cable routing.
The team explained that the decision comes after a thorough study in which they examined wheels from different brands in wind tunnel and driving tests. The choice of the SES range was due to the "performance philosophy (...) that balances aerodynamics, rolling resistance and weight".
ENVE emphasizes the benefits that the partnership with a team that has in its ranks cyclists of the quality of Tadej Pogacar, Adam Yates, Juan Ayuso or Marc Soler can bring them.
The U.S. brand will be able to receive a lot of information about its products. Valuable information, "which helps inspire the direction of future products and technologies," said Jeremy Venz, ENVE's CEO.
