Shimano Dura-Ace WH-R9100-C24 Wheelset
The Shimano Dura-Ace WH-R9100-C24 Wheelset receives minor tweaks and improvements on this already reliable line of wheels. It features improved drive rigidity and responsive acceleration thanks to its offset rim and wide flange hubs. The C-24 is the most lightweight clincher wheelset in the Dura Ace 9100 offering, coming in at a feather weight of 1412 it makes itself well at home when the roads tilt upwards. Shimano's lust-worthy 9100 series hubs boast a buttery smooth spin quality based on Shimano's cup and cone design. The cup and cone ball-bearing design is easy to maintain and offers some the best road hub performance around. Ascend with ease and descend with confidence knowing that these wheels offer superior braking performance thanks to the aluminum brake track.
I am a converted mountain biker who has recently fallen in love with cranking out miles on country roads. As such, I have a "heavy" style of riding that probably isn't the most conducive to super light bikes and wheels. I weigh about 195lbs (ice climbing doesn't burn too many calories and I put on some weight this winter, OK?), and I am a strong rider.
I was a little worried with how relatively light these wheels are I'd get flex when cranking up hills. Nope. I was a little bit worried they might be delicate when it came to bad roads, railroad crossings, potholes, gravel, whatever. Nope.
I decided to go bombing down a 60 year old sidewalk on my morning ride today, bunny hopping and jumping my way along like an idiot. I ended up catching a 2 inch square edge with my full weight on my rear wheel at a decent clip. Amazed that I didn't flat, I stopped to inspect my wheel and learned 3 things in the process.
1- Bunny hopping a 16lb bike is surprisingly easy and fun.
2-Bunny hopping a 16lb bike is really not very smart.
3-These wheels are TOUGH! No Pacman bite, no cracks. Spun it, perfectly true. A full carbon wheel probably would have died a very dumb death. Having the aluminum backbone in these things is great.
So far, I couldn't be happier with these wheels. A great value from Shimano, with legendary hub quality, superb construction, and amazing function.
