Enve SES 3.4 versus Mavic R-Sys SLR

Postby ianeverton » Mon Jan 07, 2013 15:57 pm

Looking for some new clincher wheels for the summer, are the Enve SES 3.4 worth paying approx £800 more than the Mavic R-Sys SLR's ?

It depends on what you want them for, the r-sys are much lighter 200g or so. If you do your riding in the mountains of wales then get the r-sys if you can describe it more as rolling then consider the enves. However is that worth an extra £800.

Well i wouldnt swap my Enve 6.7s for any other wheelset, they are amazing. Am i considering a pair of 3.4s... maybe

Ian

I am also interested in trying these - are you looking to purchase the standard "factory" build or a custom set?

Rich,

I was looking at the SES 3.4 with Chris King hubs, was you looking to go for a custom set ?

Cheers,
Ian

ian, how is that a custom set? i have chris kings on my 6.7s and that was how they came from my shop.

i dont think you'll be disappointed with either set. But like i said in my previous post it completely depends where you are riding and what type of riding you are doing

Hi Ian

I have asked for a price on a custom build from two sources although the spec will be the same as that available from dealers via the distributor, Saddleback i.e. Chris King hubs and Sapim CX-Rays.

Just interested to see to see if there is any difference in price......

For price and performance look the the new DT Swiss 240 straight pull hubs.
