I am shocked they would make a disc wheel when they have told us over and over that their non disc wheels are fastest.

I think what they said, was, that for your typical triathlete (and their riding speeds), their "regular" deep wheels were nearly as fast as a disc, and had other advantages (or didn't have the disadvantages of a disc). And therefore were a better choice as an all around race wheel for those athletes.

The argument has gone that most triathletes are pretty insecure when a disc wheel takes a surging cross-wind . . . so they slow down. The ENVE deep wheel is more stable in a stiff cross-wind than a full disc, so it is faster for the rider who is "insecure" in a stiff cross-wind.

Except cross winds don't really matter with a disc wheel

A bit off topic - In other pics, it was interesting that Cannondale was the only TT bike with disc brakes. A little surprising. I noticed that there's a nice mix of disc brake bikes on the regular stages.

For people interested in watching TOC and the Giro, check out Fubo.tv. It's pretty good so far.

Bingo. If anything a disc wheel in the rear makes a bike more stable. I ran a 303/disc setup one year that was seemingly immune to cross winds.

I wonder if they'll adopt Mavic's Road UST standard? They're both owned by the same holding company, no? It would be a sensible thing to do considering that adopting Road UST wouldn't preclude the use of other tires and, at the end of the day, it's more of a dimensional tolerance specification than anything else.

I could care less about ENVE and their wheel. After claiming triathletes don't need disc wheels, they won't get any money from me.

Plus, it’s not disc brake compatibility. So, no point in spending money on it.

I expect them to offer it considering Specialized and Zipp have disc brake disc wheels.

Here's a close-up look at the new Disc: Link

It's actually pretty cool. It will be very spendy from what I understand.

Interesting that they came out with a disc so soon after Specialized. I’m guessing both of these companies will stick a price tag of well over 2k on them. People will drink the marketing juice and buy them despite Flo, Hed, Renn, Aerocoach, etc all making discs just as fast (and perhaps faster) for a third the cost

Both they and Specialized can keep their wheels at that price. I will keep my money and train more or go get a bike fit or do any number of other things then pay that price for a disc that probably isn't that much better for a slow athlete like me than run of the mill disc wheels that have great sound. :) Or maybe buy a HED disc? Wait then I have a Zipp 808 front and then a HED Disc.....thats blasphemy....ok I'll stick with my 808's. :P

I just set my PR by 30+ seconds on my little sprint route on 7.8s.. Only 1w more was used versus my PR time last year on the Super9/808, hmmmm. Already sold the 808.. super9 next.

it's not but it's enough for me... I will buy a disc wheel again, dont get me wrong. Probably either Enve's or Roval 321 but will get a disc brake version. The 7.8 is fast enough for me that it will hold me over till I convert Road and TT bikes to disc versions... seems the market is going that way.

LOL

There are tons of other factors that can cause that instead of the wheels. Your "test" goes against all knowledge from wind tunnel studies and CFD. And 1W? Power meters are +/- 1.5% accurate. You have just become ENVE's target customer.
