Shimano Ultegra 6800 Wheelset

In the wake of the success of the 11 Speed Dura Ace 9000 group, this year Shimano revealed that the 11 Speed sensation was moving down the line to the more affordable Ultegra 6800 group. The new Ultegra 6800 wheelset is a tubeless-ready design and employs a wide flange hub and offset rim to ensure optimal stiffness and efficiency. Upgrades on the Ultegra 6800 Hubs go beyond the addition of an extra speed! In order to bring the Ultegra tubeless wheels up to date with the new 11 speed suit, the 6800 hubs have been updated with a new freehub that features a new cone digital adjustment system designed to diffuse quick release tension, reducing the load on the bearings to enable smoother spinning and increased durability. In place of the double lock system normally found on most cup and cone hubs is a ratcheting ring hidden under an end cap. To adjust it you simply remove the end cap with a 5mm allen, and rotate the ring to eliminate any play in the bearings. No more messing with cone spanners! Hubs weigh 10 grams less than previous version, allowing the wheelset to weigh in at 1,640 grams (claimed).

          Checked spoke tension and trueness out of box and no changes needed. Road MS 150 after installing and performed very well.

              Comments about Shimano WH-6800 Ultegra Wheelset:

              I upgraded from the Bontrager SSR, which is an entry level wheelset. I immediately noticed the difference, the Ultegra is definitely lighter and the bike is more responsive when accelerating and transfers power more efficiently. I can feel the bike accelerate quicker form a stop and feel better response when I am pedaling off the saddle at full power. You can use the rear with a 10-speed cassette with a spacer that comes with it, I didn't even have to tune up the rear derailleur when I swapped the wheels. I'm looking forward when it comes time to change the tires as I'm going for the tubeless.

              Comments about Shimano WH-6800 Ultegra Wheelset:

              I picked these up after my stock rear wheel was giving me issue. I spent A LONG Time deciding what wheel to get and these fit the bill. Several Hundred miles after having them for 3 weeks and I have hit potholes and jumped bumps and they are still true as day 1. I am 255 lbs and ride aggresive. I believe Shimano makes a great wheel and will back them up if problem arises. They are 11 speed, but will work with 10- adapter included. They will also work tubeless. Maybe try that later...
