Shimano RS81-C24 Carbon Wheelset

Shimano RS81-C24 Carbon Wheelset

The Shimano WH-RS81 C24 is a brilliant example of trickle down technology at its finest. The carbon lamination/ alloy-construction paired with double butted, straight-pull spokes enhance durability and stiffness for the most efficient transferring of power. The carbon laminate profile keeps weight to a bare minimum, while the alloy brake track offers better braking performance and stopping power than one would get from a carbon brake track. Weighing at a mere 1,520 grams, the minimal weight alone makes the RS81 a sweet climbing wheel. Pair its lightweight with its low profile and power transfer, and you have an even sweeter wheel for pedaling uphill. However, the RS81 doesn’t stop at climbing, and is a reliable, do-it-all wheel that won’t shy away in the sprints or solo attacks.

good wheel great service
One of the wheels had a depression in the breaking area that caused issues when breaking. They took care of it immediately by allowing us to ride the wheel and sent a wheel out to replace with a return ticket so we did not have to swap wheel back and forth when it arrived or incur down time. Great customer service from Lee.

Hi
Can anyone tell me how much noise the hubs make when you are coasting?
A.P. on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The RS81's barely make any noise when coasting. Compared to some hubs they are quiet. Now, mind you, I
do wear hearing aids, but not when riding. In my opinion there's nothing like hearing the sweet sound of
nice road tires on smooth tarmac especially with a bit of 'carbon' noise/hum.
Hope this helps, they are great wheels and do everything well, especially climbing.
