Logic prevailing, you'd assume that a lightweight wheelset would sacrifice its durability and ruggedness for weight savings. Well, the Shimano Dura Ace WH 9000 C24 TL Carbon Tubeless Road Wheelset is here to throw that notion by the wayside. Shimano's proprietary Carbon Lamination technology reduces the rim's aluminum to only 0. 6 millimeters thick without sacrificing strength or stability, courtesy of its fused carbon layers for added lateral stiffness and strength. Although deep dish rims are all the rage these days, this wheelset sticks to a lower profile 24 millimeter depth for fast spin up, as well as nimble handling in tricky crosswinds. Its 20. 8mm width adds a bit larger contact patch for greater traction, also allowing you to run a lower pressure for increased shock absorption, especially considering its tubeless ready design. Additional performance enhancing features include an offset design that takes into consideration the stress exerted by drive and non drive sides, further reinforced by sturdy T nut construction at the junction of the spoke and rim. The lightweight titanium freehub is housed within a wide flange hub for maximum efficiency and power transfer. Moreover, its cup and cone bearings resist undue stress from straightaways and hard corners. Please note that this wheelset works with tubes and tubeless setups, as well as 11 speed and 10 speed cassettes with additional spacer.
