Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C50 Wheel Set (Clincher)
This is the Shimano Dura-Ace C50 Clincher Wheelset. 50mm Wheel depth provides an aerodynamic profile while the unique Dura-Ace shaping reduces cross wind drag. Carbon wrapped around an aluminum ring gives lightweight advantage of full carbon rims without the risk of wheel failure from brake heating.Some of the best hubs of any comparable wheelset and the optimized spoke layout are among many of the features that make these wheels amongst the best in the peleton. Precision: bearing durability in all conditions
For increased performance in real-world conditions, Shimano exclusively uses angular contact bearings, which better enable the hub to support lateral loading of the wheel.
At the Dura-Ace level, these high quality ball bearings and races, already ground to amazing precision are further laser-measured and matched.
Strength: Off-center rims mean more rear wheel strength
Off-center rim technology decreases spoke angle on cassette side,
enabling more even spoke tension and a stronger wheel.
Quality, durability and lightweight.
There’s no question that Shimano builds wheels for the most performance-minded customers.
All Dura-Ace level wheels come with a 3-year warranty.
