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.

Love these Wheels
Best bang for your wheel buck. have purchased a total of 4 3sets after i tried out my first set- 3000 miles on my first set and they are flawless fast great climbers and just as importantly great descender. I love the AL brake track as i live in big canyon country and have watched people melt pure carbon wheels from braking heat on big descents. I retired (sold) all my Mavics and DT 240 wheelsets There is nothing to dislike on this wheelset.

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.

Great Upgrade! Don't look further!
My wife and I each upgraded our wheel sets to these. We couldn't be more pleased. Our first effort was putting them to the roads of Moab,UT. 110 miles and 6,000' of climbing. Wheels stayed true, rolled fast, and are definitely lighter than the stock wheels. Wheels are one of the best upgrades to a bike to make it "new" again (that and fresh bar tape and cables/housings). These wheels are a great balance of price and performance. Just say yes!

needed wheels
I needed wheels to replace a set I wore out on my Fuji SL1 . They ride very well and comfortable . I purchased them after reading all the positive reviews on various web sites . I would of gave them a 5 if I had a couple of seasons on them but now I only have 5 or 6 hundred miles on them .

High quality, no surprises
Bought these for my newer bike. I already own RS-80s (10sp) on the other machine which have 12000km still true. Thats what I expect from these, and the only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is that I only have 500km on the RS-81s. Out-of-the-box true, and I weighed them (w/o QR) 1520g. Good price at Jenson, and probably can add another star after 6 months, let's see.

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.
