They are so stiff and direct that they are not the sort of wheel
you take if you are going for a pootle…..they are way too direct
for that. On really steep stuff, they also feel heavier,
unsurprisingly, than real climbing wheels such as the ENVE 2.2's
which I am also lucky enough to have.
As a consequence sometimes they don't 'feel' that quick - but the
results (and by that I mean Strava
!) don't lie. These are very, very fast.
Personally I still feel that for most people the ENVE 3.4 is the
best compromise of them all - almost as light as the 2.2 and almost
as aero as the 4.5s. We certainly sell miles more 3.4s than the
other variants combined.
But if you are a strong rider and can push big watts and are
looking for the quickest road wheels on the market I would highly
recommend the 4.5s.
