Shimano RS81-C24 Carbon Wheelset

The Shimano WH-RS81 C24 is a brilliant example of trickle down technology at its finest. The carbon lamination/ alloy-construction paired with double butted, straight-pull spokes enhance durability and stiffness for the most efficient transferring of power. The carbon laminate profile keeps weight to a bare minimum, while the alloy brake track offers better braking performance and stopping power than one would get from a carbon brake track. Weighing at a mere 1,520 grams, the minimal weight alone makes the RS81 a sweet climbing wheel. Pair its lightweight with its low profile and power transfer, and you have an even sweeter wheel for pedaling uphill. However, the RS81 doesn’t stop at climbing, and is a reliable, do-it-all wheel that won’t shy away in the sprints or solo attacks.

    This is a great wheelset if you're on a budget. Fantastic build and ride quality. Good alternative to Dura-Ace if you can't afford those.

          Comments about Shimano RS81-C24 Carbon Wheelset:

          I only have ~200 miles on them but so far, these wheels are definitely 5-star at this price point. You can really feel the surge when you climb or accelerate. I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger on these. It's a great package of features at $500. They're not particularly flashy, but are subtly beautiful when you study the construction a bit.

              Comments about Shimano RS81-C24 Carbon Wheelset:

              Bought the wheels to replace a very old set on girlfriends bike and the price was right. Wheels look great and are really light for a production wheel. No clue as to the durability since they were just purchased. Either the bearings are rough or the little plastic cover causes resistance when wheel is turning. Overall a good deal for a carbon/alum wheelset.
