2014 Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24 CarbClincher Tubeless Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

If you’ve ridden clinchers all your life, but are interested in increasing performance without taking on the headaches that can accompany tubular wheels, then the Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24 Carbon Clincher Tubeless Wheelset will be a high-quality method of dipping your toes in both the easy maintenance clincher stream and the performance minded tubular ocean.
 
Since tubeless tire do not have to deal with either the issues of tubes or glue, and they have the added benefit of being able to function well at lower tire pressures, tubeless can often seem like the way to go when you’re looking to have a comfortable, efficient riding experience. Recognizing these benefits, Shimano has designed a member of their WH-9000-C24 Carbon Clincher family to work with tubeless tires.
 
For these wheels, as with all the wheels in their WH-9000 line, Shimano has focused on aerodynamics, lateral rigidity and ride quality. Most of the time it seems that only two of the three are possible at any one time, but Shimano has proved that such an advanced design is indeed possible and affordable. First, to get the weight and performance advantages associated with carbon wheels, while not submitting to the telltale carbon drawbacks, Shimano engineered a rim where the braking surface remains alloy while a thin layer of carbon is laid over the alloy base, for an optimal balance of weight, rigidity and ride quality. Road vibrations are dampened without losing any of your torsional rigidity. What you get is essentially a climbing wheel that performs extremely well in the wind without having to dive into a deep dish profile. They have managed to make this possible by designing the front wheel to have a 21mm depth while the rear wheel has a 23mm depth. Airflow is improved when you are slicing through a head wind, but the fact that the rims themselves do not have a dramatic profile means that you will feel completely secure in a stiff cross-wind, and especially on a gusty mountain decent where one ill-timed blast of wind could blow you around like yesterday’s newspaper.
 
The sixteen radially-laced spokes on the front keep the wheel light and responsive and 20 two-cross laced spokes in the rear enhance torsional rigidity. With the WH-9000-C24 Carbon Clincher Tubeless you’ll get the benefit of Shimano’s hubs which use the angular contact ball bearings and are designed to roll as smoothly as possible, largely by virtue of the interface with the quick release mechanism. To improve lateral and torsional stiffness, the wheels have an off-set rim wider flange hub construction. The oversized A7075 alloy axles are super stiff, increasing the overall rigidity of the wheels. The more rigid, the more responsive they are going to feel. 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. These wheels are both tube and tubeless ready. So you can have the choice whether you want to go with your usual inner tube/tire set up, or spring for the tubeless option. You’ll find having the choice is really a luxury since you will be able to stay flexible. 
 
Now you won’t need to worry about which wheels to take out; no matter the terrain, no matter the weather, the Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24 Carbon Clincher Tubeless Wheelset will be able to address and overcome any climatic or territorial challenge. And to sweeten the deal, all Dura-Ace level wheels come with a three-year manufacturer warranty.
