Shimano Ultegra 6800 Tubeless Wheelset

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).

  • Alloy construction
  • Wide flange hub

  • Cup and cone bearing system
  • Tool-less adjustment
  • Tubeless ready
  • 11-Speed
  • Spoke count: Rear (20 straight pull), Front (16 straight pull)

  • Claimed weight: 1,640 grams (set)

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.

Nothing wrong with the wheels but you can't find spokes for them if they break. Broke a spoke and it will be three months until I can get a spoke. So unless you can...Read complete review

Nothing wrong with the wheels but you can't find spokes for them if they break. Broke a spoke and it will be three months until I can get a spoke. So unless you can let your bike sit for three months, buy from someone who can offer replacement parts.

Great Wheelset!

By Miles

from Tumwater, WA

Comments about Shimano Ultegra 6800 Tubeless Wheelset:

I bought this wheel set as an upgrade. I was a little nervous about some of the comments I read from others on how challenging it was to change tires. I had also purchased a new set of S-Works Turbo tires and at first couldn't get them onto the rims and was worried that I was going to damage the rims. I then went online and found that I was doing it all wrong, as all of my life I had started with the tire at the valve and the worked them on from there. I then tried it the other way, ending at the valve and pushing the tire down into the valley in the center. I had the new tires on in less than five minutes, using no tools. I'm now much more confident that I can change a flat on the road, and do it quickly.

The new wheels are great, run smooth and are everything I hoped they would be. My average speed has increased by about 2mph since installing them.

Great solid wheels for the money.

Comments about Shimano Ultegra 6800 Tubeless Wheelset:

True, solid and spin well. Lower rating because: Run clinchers and way to hard to get tires on or lever off when flats occur.

Comments about Shimano Ultegra 6800 Tubeless Wheelset:

Not the lightest set of wheels out there but they are ligher than what I was used too and they hold up well. My first ride on these wheels ended in a crash and there was no damage to the wheels.

Really nice and tough wheelset.

Comments about Shimano Ultegra 6800 Tubeless Wheelset:

I totally recommend these wheels. I rode a 100 mile hilly gravel race on them. I converted them to tubeless, I had to replace the valves though since the ones that came with the wheels don't have a removable core. But after I did this they sealed great. I totally recommend these for folks on a budget and want to convert to tubeless.

    Comments about Shimano Ultegra 6800 Tubeless Wheelset:

    These wheels are a great value. I Flatted after several months of happy riding and while these are not the easiest tires to replace with a tube I took some time to learn the correct technique described on some bike forums and with a little bit of practice I can now install my tires by hand with no lever.

    Comments about Shimano Ultegra 6800 Tubeless Wheelset:

    The wheels are functionally great - reasonably light weight, great upgrade at a moderate price point. Getting the tires and tubes on was shockingly difficult. Continental GP 4000 fit so tightly I could not avoid a lever. Road great for 2 months and flatted at the end of my last ride near my house so I was able to make the change in my basement. The tire was so tightly bound to the wheel that the clincher was as if it had been glued to the rim. Literally there was no way to separate the sidewall from the rim. Ultimately it took a screw driver to peel the tire away from the rim and it tore. I have read others with the same issue on road bike review forums and I have tried the techniques described for changing one of these tires - it did not make any difference. I now have no confidence going out on these rims and flatting so it is back to my old heavy rims and to the dust bin for these.
