2014 Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Tubeless Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

Shimano Ultegra wheels have a well-earned reputation for being bomb-proof. High-performance and practicality go hand in hand with the Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Tubeless Wheelset. As a tubeless and clincher compatible wheelset, the WH-6800 is ready to answer all your riding needs, whether you prefer the user-friendly clincher/tube set up, or you want to slap on a pair of tubeless tires and find that sweet-spot between the clincher and the tubular world.
 
Once you’ve decided on your tire arrangement, you’ll be amazed at how smoothly these wheels handle the road vibrations. The straight-pull spokes are specially butted according to which side of the drive train they run to allow for the fine-tuning of ride comfort versus lateral stiffness. You’ll be able to glide over even the roughest roads without having to give up any of the responsive snap we’ve all come to expect from a pair of Shimano road wheels. Adding to their overall versatility, the Ultegra WH-6800 Tubeless are durable, so you can even roll them as cyclocross wheels if you head in that direction once the weather turns sour. With 16 radial spokes in the front and 20 two cross spokes in the back, the wheels keep their weight down, making them either an elite pair of training wheels or the most affordable race day wheelset in your quiver. Shimano discovered that when using such a low-spoke count, they get much better results in terms of rigidity and durability when they use their T-nut technology. It is a threaded rim and nipple interface that increases the overall rigidity while still being able to use fewer and lighter spokes.
 
The alloy rim is light and provides the best possible braking surface. As ubiquitous as carbon has become in cycling, there is no denying that a well-made alloy wheel can provide the ideal solution when the goal is a light, durable and not-cost-prohibitive wheelset. And with the WH-6800 you’ll get the benefit of Shimano’s über-reliable hubs that use the angular contact ball bearings. They are designed to roll as smoothly as possible, largely by virtue of the interface with the quick release mechanism. Shimano makes use of an internal ratcheting ring under the end cap, which effectively distributes the compression, allowing for the bearings to roll smoothly, increasing durability and lifespan. 
 
The Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Tubeless Wheelset has a 23mm rim width and recently underwent an upgrade to make it compatible with Shimano Ultegra and SRAM 11-speed systems. Shimano also includes a thin spacer, so the WH-6800 retains the ability to run with 8, 9 and 10-speed cassettes. The Ultegra WH-6800 Tubeless Wheelset will quickly win you over with their versatility, durability and exceptional quality.
