The Tubular version of the carbon wheels are most certainly one of the most commonly used deep section wheelsets within the pro peleton and thus you can be sure that Dura-Ace Wheels are not only race tested, but refined to meet the demands of the pro cyclist.
Whilst heavier, this WH-9000 CL clincher version with it’s aluminium breaking surface offers the same aero benefits, but with the convenience and better breaking surface that most amateur cyclists are looking for.
Their new rim design has enabled Shimano to reduce weight, but without sacrificing any of their aero qualities.
Main Highlights & Features:
Lightweight full carbon 50mm deep 22.4mm wide (D2) rim with alloy braking surface for improved aerodynamics and increased rigidity for sprinters and TT specialists
Alloy clincher rim maintains high braking performance with standard brake pads in all conditions
21 rear and 16 front stainless steel butted and bladed straight pull spokes for optimal balance and rigidity (OPTBAL)
