      I've put hundreds of miles on these wheels and have enjoyed the durability and very smooth rolling characteristics. I use tubes and have not tried tubeless tires yet due to the limited selection and higher price for them.

        These wheels are stiff, but not uncomfortable. They're light, but could be slightly lighter since there are many other lighter wheels on the market. For the price, the Ultegra wheels are a good buy and perform well. They offer good energy transfer and feel solid when you're pushing hard on the pedals. They also offer nice braking efficiency.

        Ultegra Tubless Experience

        Comments about Shimano WH6700 Ultegra Tubeless Wheelset:

        I bought these so I could try out tubeless wheels on my Specialized Tarmac. I use it for fitness rides and some commuting.
        I have had great luck so far from a tubeless standpoint. Wheels hold air and tires mounted easily. I am not running sealant since it voids the warranty and the web is full of photos of holes that sealant has eaten in these rims.
        I am 235 lbs so I put a lot of stress on my rims (but am putting less with every pound I drop) and have had some issues with the rear wheel not staying true. I know this is partially because of my weight but have also heard similar comments from other riders in the 150-170 lb range. Also be aware that the spokes take non-standard wrench so do your self a favor and buy the excellent Park wrench they make specifically for Shimano wheels and don't forget their tool to keep the bladed spokes oriented correctly.
        I would defiantly recommend these to anyone looking to try out tubeless wheels. I am running the 25mm Specialized Robeix tubless tires on them.

        Comments about Shimano WH6700 Ultegra Tubeless Wheelset:

        I was very impressed with the overall package as well as the fit & finish of the wheelset. They lightened up my bike and because they can be ridden tubeless without modifications they are a better choice over other similar brands. Mainly I am into riding longer distances and climbing hills for fun. No problems with truing and really they are just great wheels. Seriously I would buy them again I like them that much.

            Comments about Shimano WH6700 Ultegra Tubeless Wheelset:

            My super six came with Ksyrium Elites, which is a great wheel for heavy riders, but with their wide blade spokes they sure push one around in the wind, and since I ride coastal California this was a problem for me. These Shimano WH6700 are the perfect replacement as they cut the wind much better, and even in extreme crosswinds the push is quite gentle. Also the lighter weight is apparent in acceleration & climbing. If you're riding propeller wheels these babies will make it feel like you just got a new bike. They did require a slight truing after the first 100 miles, but I've come to expect as much from factory wheels, so should you.

              Comments about Shimano WH6700 Ultegra Tubeless Wheelset:

              I have come to love tubeless tires and this wheelset accommodates them well. This is a very economical yet high performance set of wheels. Once you have mastered the art of installing tubeless tires (upgrade to removable core valve stems and it makes the injection of sealant much cleaner and easier), they ride like a dream and flats diminish (in my case) but 50%. Puncture? Not a problem! Simply throw a tube on and continue your ride. Only downside is that you have to have a compressor to seat the tire the first time! But the wheelset is great! Jenson's price beating strategy allowed me to find them cheaper than my first set!

                Shimano put a great set of wheels out there with these Ultegras. I just recently converted my Scott frame to all Ultegra components including these wheels. What a great decision. Taught, smooth and light, these wheels look right at home amongst competitive riders. They whistle down the road and came well trued out of the box. I am glad I got these at a great price. Do yourself a favor and buy a set!

                    Comments about Shimano WH6700 Ultegra Tubeless Wheelset:

                    My last set of wheels, Mavic Akysium came on my 2008 Giant TCR which was very strong and durable. I am a 220 lbs. rider and just last August I snapped a spoke. I've always had problems snapping spokes because my leg strength is pretty good and my torque weight ration can easily rip a wheel apart. Most of the time I've broken spokes have been coming out of the saddle to hammer an ascent. Being an avid cyclist I also know that once they start popping it's just going to continue until either you re-lace or buy a new wheel set. That said I did baby my Akysium by staying in the saddle most of the time. So I debated about upgrading from Akysium to SLS and all entry level carbon wheels from all the makers out there. Well just about everything was pushing me to about 1k. Knowing it was bike closeout time I knew I could get myself into another full Ultegra carbon bike just over 2k and invest that 1k into that. Well I got the bug for a Madone 5.2. Bontrager wheel set was there entry level weighing in around 2200 grams, almost the same weight as my Aksium's. Just above the 5.2 was the Madone 5.9 on it had the new Ultegra di2 groupo and a set of Ultegra Wheels weighing in around 1600 grams. The wheels are designed much like the Mavic SLS. Let's be straight Shimano does it right. The 2012 5.9 closeout was only 1200 bucks more than the bike I was wanting, yeah only 1200 because it had been demo'd. Straight I've had my Madone 5.9 now for better than a month and the wheels are a dream. yes they are faster. From hours of research you want your rims to be light to reduce centrifugal drag. These wheels are snappy and hug the road. Now the bike I'm riding might be adding to the performance but I'm telling you these wheel s are night and day above the Akysium and from what I read the SLS have proven cracking problem and I could not find that issue in research about the Ultegra Wheels. My average MPH has gone from 15.1 to 15.4 MPH…usual ride is a 40 mile loop with 2500 feet of climbing. The wheels are also tubeless ready but my bike came with tubes. Once I wear them don I'm going to convert. Now, I wanted asset of carbon, mostly because they look cool, but realty, watching the tours, a lot of riders have standard wheels in climbing stages and I love to climb. Hey look at Bob Roll's commentary on Ultegra wheels via YouTube. These wheels rock and by the way, the spokes are supposed to be made of some superior alloy. My group ride Saturday mornings, now I'm about ready to move into the A group. These wheels coupled with my new bike have brought me to a new level. It's true invest in a light wheel set, but don't leave out quality and you know that's what Shimano is all about.

                    I ordered the ultegra wheelset to replace my American Classic 420. I had 6000 miles on the 420s. I ordered the wh6700 online and received the wheelset in four days with no damage. The bearings are a little tight but a small adjustment was all that they needed. I used tubes for right now. The tires popped right on using only my hands. The beads gave a loud snap when locked in. I have only 300 miles on them right now. The wheels feel solid and wind up fairly fast. Wheels still true. I am 5'08 at 185 lbs.. Wheels are on my Cervelo S1.
