2014 Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C50 CarbClincher Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

The Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C50 Carbon Clincher Wheelset focuses on aerodynamics and stability. They combine pro-level performance with the everyman convenience of clinchers. Similarly to the other carbon clinchers in the 9000 series, the C50s have an alloy breaking surface with carbon flaring to provide them with the best carbon aero qualities while giving you the security of a super reliable braking surface.
With the C50 Carbon Clincher, you’ll be getting a wheelset that will be useful in every situation from training to racing. Though the sex appeal of wheels often does not revolve around durability and versatility, you’ll get those virtues along with the hardcore aerodynamics that we all want from a deep-section profile. Shimano has invested in a lot of wind tunnel research to design the C50 as aero and stable in cross-winds. To create the best possible all-around wheel, Shimano has focused on aerodynamics, lateral rigidity and ride quality. 
These wheel receive the benefit of the OptBal 2:1 spoke lacing on the rear wheel. What it stands for is “optimal balance” since the 21-spoke rear wheel is laced with fourteen drive side spokes and 7 non-drive side spokes. The drive side is laced in a 3 cross pattern, designed to match the hub flange perfectly. The seven non-drive side are then radially laced, which means that they pull twice as hard versus the drive side spokes. Balancing the tension in this way increases lateral stiffness, which makes this 21-spoke wheel as strong as a 28-spoke wheel. Then with sixteen radially-laced spokes on the front, these are very light and responsive wheels. And the nipples are embedded below the rim that not only makes the rims look amazing, it keeps the wheel as aerodynamic as possible.
You’ll also get the benefit of Shimano’s hubs, which use the angular contact ball bearings and are designed to roll as smoothly as possible, as angular contacts create less friction than cartridges. The oversized A7075 alloy axles are super stiff, increasing the overall rigidity of the wheels. The more rigid the axles, the more responsive the wheels are going to feel. The freehub body is made from lightweight titanium. Compatible with Shimano and SRAM 11-speed systems, Shimano has also included a thin spacer so the wheels can still run with 8/9/10-speed cassettes. There is a three-year manufacturer warranty for these wheels.
If you want to fall in love all over again with your bike, treat it to a nice juicy upgrade like a sleek pair of wheels. The Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C50 Carbon Clincher Wheelset would make any bike a high performance machine, and every ride just got that much more fun.
