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).

    Comments about Shimano WH-6800 Ultegra Wheelset:

    Looked for a wheel upgrade on my new Pinarello Rokh with Ultegra 6800. I used Road Tubeless with my last bike, also Shimano Ultegra wheels, but those were older 10-speed types. These 6800s look nicer, better than their price point for sure, and are a low enough weight difference to be noticeable. Hutchinson tires still go on with a great deal of effort, making the "no tire lever" stickers on the rim a joke. I also tried Schwalbe One road tubeless tires and will likely use nothing else--much easier to put on, giving me a fighting chance of dealing with a flat on the road. That said, in three years of road tubeless riding with Caffelatex sealant, I only had one flat--and that one was so nasty nothing could have saved it from deflating. Also, road tubeless ride quality is amazing, a huge difference to me and can make a big difference on a 50+ mile ride in comfort alone. Highly recommended wheel upgrade!

        Comments about Shimano WH-6800 Ultegra Wheelset:

        I got these at a great price and they've been one of the better wheelsets I've had so far. The tubeless conversion was fairly simply and the wheels feel great. Light enough to race and strong enough to train on. My only qualm would be the front wheel is a little flexy, but nothing too bad. Maybe I need to cut down on the burritos.

          Comments about Shimano WH-6800 Ultegra Wheelset:

          I upgraded from a set of Mavics. I felt the difference immediately. Wheels are more responsive, and power transfer is more efficient. Climbing and acceleration have improved. Overall ride quality has improved. I have heard from other riders about breaking spokes, however I in the Clydedale club. Im 5'9 at 215 pounds. I do a bit bodybuilding and focus a lot of my strength in my legs. With that being said I can easily pedal up to 35mph on straightaways, I have yet to have problems. I dont recommend braking on descents though.

            $420 is a great deal for these wheels.
            Only have few hundred miles on them but so far a solid wheel.
            Like the easy maintenance aspect on the rear hub.

            Have not gone tubeless yet but it comes with the valve stems and is tubeless ready.

              There's controversy whether nicer wheels make a difference or not. All i know is i ride faster
              And longer now. Maybe im just getting better. Upgraded from stock bontrager selects. Perhaps its the tubeless feature that makes the difference

                I bought the wheelset to replace the original wheel which came with the Giant Defy Comp 0. The weight is lighter and it is more responsive when I sprint or accelerate. Tubeless ready so you don't need any rim tape. Well build. You cannot use any tire level to open so putting in new tire does take some times without the tire level.
