Shimano WH-R501 Wheelset

Shimano WH-R501-A Wheelset

The WH-R501 clincher wheelset is thoroughly designed in all the right places to supply an impressive amount of aerodynamics, resilience, and versatility, while keeping the price point exceptionally friendly. The shallow 24mm rims coupled with the aero bladed spokes, cut through the wind without catching any side winds, while also shaving the extra material used on deeper profiles to reduce rotational weight. The WH-R501’s hub design employs angular contact bearings for longevity and easier maintenance, while the rim wear indicator takes the guess work out of knowing when it’s time for replacement.

Shimano WH-R501-A Wheelset Features:

  • 24mm profile allow wheels for training and everyday riding
  • 20 radial front and 24 cross laced rear spokes
  • Shimano angular contact bearings
  • 8, 9, 10 speed compatible
  • Aero bladed spokes
  • Rim wear indicator allows safe detection of worn rim
  • Spoke Count: Front – 20, Rear – 24
  • Size: 700c
  • Compatibility: Shimano/SRAM 8/9/10 speed
  • Weight: Front - 830g, Rear - 1,090g, Set - 1,920g
  • Includes QR skewers

So far, so good.
Okay, the R500 wheels set is brand new to me and I've done literally one ride on them, but I'm impressed with the quality and weight of the wheels for the money.
They're replacing an older set of Forte/Performance Titan wheels that I've had for almost 10 years. Those things were $150 for the pair and were excellent for a couple thousand miles before the rear rim started to split.
If I get as much use out of the Shimanos, I will not be disappointed.

A candidate for best deal of year
I was looking for quality wheels that were inexpensive (not to be confused with "cheap"). I wasn't concerned about being a weight weenie since I was outfitting my 21 pound chromoly steel training road bike. And actually these wheels are comparatively lightweight especially considering factors of quality, value & price. Wow!! These wheels fit the bill perfectly. Shimano reliability, improved hub/bearing technology, quality workmanship and attractive design. Noticeably less rolling resistance than my previous wheels. Pleasantly quiet rear hub when coasting. Added bonus: they match my red 1989 Schwinn Circuit road bike perfectly especially with my Michelin Pro 3 Race red sidewalls. In fact these wheels look so good that they inspired me to completely refurbish and detail my bike back to a level that takes advantage of the beauty of the wheels. Now I can't do a ride without getting compliments about the bike and the wheels. I'm ordering a 2nd set to keep on ice for the future because you never know when a deal like this will be back.

I have 27" x 1 1/4" wheels currently and would like to upgrade to these. I think the rear spacing is 126 mm. Is it possible to convert to these wheels?
Chris C on Feb 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these should fit your bicycle's rear spacing. I use this wheelset on both my 1986 Guerciotti frame as well as my 2006 Ciocc frame - both frames from different era's. If your frame is a modern frame purchased within the last 10-15 years, this wheelset should fit it. The only thing you might need to purchase additionally is a new cassette to fit this hub. I would first purchase this wheelset, then see if your cassette can work with it.
what width 700c tires can this set handle?
Dmb on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This wheel set, Shimano R501,in my opinion, is the best deal out there.  It looks like a much more expensive wheel set.  Perfectly trued out of the box.  I'm 225# and after 600+miles ...no problems.  I'll keep you posted as I accumulate miles. I would definitely buy these again.

Is this wheelset compatible with a Giant bike, 8 speed?
Pepo on Jul 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, as long as the bike accepts a 700c, rim brake, quick release wheel with 130 rear and 100mm axle spacing.
