2014 Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C35 CarbClincher Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

Serious cyclists can, within reason, be put into two categories: those who care about saving weight and those who care about aerodynamics. With the Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C35 Carbon Clincher Wheelset you no longer have to identify yourself as a leg man or a breast man; you can get the best of both worlds.
 
In terms of profile, the Dura-Ace WH-9000-C35 clinchers hit that sweet spot where you can actually feel the improvement on how the wheels cut through the wind, without also having that precarious premonition of when the side gust might hit at the wrong time and send you embarrassingly into the next lane. To create the best possible all-around wheel, Shimano has focused on aerodynamics, lateral rigidity and ride quality. 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, enhancing the aerodynamics and providing the silky ride quality we all want in a carbon rim. 
 
These wheel also 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 seven non-drive side spokes. The drive side is laced in a three-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. 
 
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, a design feature that cartridges can't quite match. To improve lateral and torsional stiffness, the rear wheel has a wider flange rear hub to more-rigidly brace the spokes. 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. The freehub body is made from lightweight titanium. And the nipples are external, which is an oft-overlooked virtue, which means that any tuning they may need in the distant future will be simple. 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. All Dura Ace level wheels come with a three-year manufacturer warranty. 
 
The ease of care is often why we keep coming back to clincher wheels. The Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C35 Carbon Clincher Wheelset gives you pro-level quality while ensuring that you won’t feel like you need a full-time mechanic to help you service them.
