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:

      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

              Comments about Shimano WH-6800 Ultegra Wheelset:

              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.

                    I upgraded from the Bontrager SSR, which is an entry level wheelset. I immediately noticed the difference, the Ultegra is definitely lighter and the bike is more responsive when accelerating and transfers power more efficiently. I can feel the bike accelerate quicker form a stop and feel better response when I am pedaling off the saddle at full power. You can use the rear with a 10-speed cassette with a spacer that comes with it, I didn't even have to tune up the rear derailleur when I swapped the wheels. I'm looking forward when it comes time to change the tires as I'm going for the tubeless.

                    I picked these up after my stock rear wheel was giving me issue. I spent A LONG Time deciding what wheel to get and these fit the bill. Several Hundred miles after having them for 3 weeks and I have hit potholes and jumped bumps and they are still true as day 1. I am 255 lbs and ride aggresive. I believe Shimano makes a great wheel and will back them up if problem arises. They are 11 speed, but will work with 10- adapter included. They will also work tubeless. Maybe try that later...
