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

Product Description

General Information

Remembering your first pair of carbon wheels can often feel like remembering your first kiss: you may have been a little embarrassed and maybe you didn’t have the best form yet, but you can point to it as a defining event. The Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24 Carbon Clincher Wheelset is the perfect upgrade to your wheel collection by being a light, durable option for both training and racing days.
 
Back in the early days – six or seven years ago – of carbon clinchers, it wasn’t unusual to feel like we were getting all of the drawbacks and none of the benefits of each. They were heavy and in very bad situations, the carbon braking walls could not withstand the heat that extended heavy braking that could be generated on mountain descents. Shimano has neutralized this issue by designing a rim where the braking surface remains alloy while a thin layer of carbon is laid over the alloy base, enhancing the aerodynamics and providing the silky ride quality we all want in a carbon rim. 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.
 
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 you’ll get the benefit of Shimano’s wide flange hub with offset rim for maximum rigidity and power transmission. They use the angular contact ball bearings, which are designed to roll as smoothly as possible thanks to the design. The oversized A7075 alloy axles are super stiff, increasing the overall rigidity of the wheels. Shimano has given this wheelset their high strength and lightweight titanium freehub body, per its Dura-Ace status. 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. 
 
Keep in mind that these are called the C24 Carbon Clinchers for a reason. They are not, in fact, compatible with a tubeless tire. If you want to go that route, then you should be looking at the C24 Carbon Tubeless Wheelset. But what you lose in choice you gain in weight savings. The clinchers are lighter than the tubeless wheelset because their inner rim beading did not have to be made as robust. All Dura-Ace level wheels come with a three-year manufacturer warranty.
 
To have the racing pedigree of the Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24 Carbon Clincher while still being able to stick to the practicality a clincher wheel provides will give you the confidence and motivation to head out on that Sunday morning century ride.
