Ultegra RS700 C30 Wheelset

Ultegra RS700 C30

The Shimano WH-RS700-C30-TL is a tubeless wheelset that is very adaptive and reliable. Featuring a lightweight carbon inner rim with different rim profiles front and rear, it offers efficient acceleration and direct rider to road power transfer. The hubs feature high-quality contact seals combined with cup and cone bearings that provide smooth rolling and consistent performance. The rear wheel features Shimano OPTBAL 2:1 spoke lacing, where the drive side has twice as many spokes as the non-drive side. This 2:1 spoke lacing increases stiffness and rigidity, and is especially noticeable when putting the power down.

Shimano Ultegra 6800 Wheelset

Shimano Ultegra 6800

The Shimano Ultegra 6800 Tubeless/Clincher wheelset, slightly heavier than the Dura Ace model, offers technology that delivers excellent performance. Rolling nicely and smoothly across the tarmac, these are ideal for racing and/or everyday riding. Low-friction seals effectively shut out water, mud and dirt without affecting rotational smoothness. Also, with different rim shapes for front and rear wheels (optimised lacing and reduce weight) makes this wheelset both lightweight and strong.
