Race-ready and ready to rock any road in sight, the Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Road Wheelset is a precision marvel light enough for competition yet durable enough for the rigors of everyday riding. First and foremost among the trickle-down features from rock star big brother Dura-Ace is an 11-speed compatible freehub plus an overall lighter hub design. Its freehub is 10 grams lighter than the previous version and its digital click bearing adjustment system diffuses quick-release tension, reduces bearing load, provides smoother spinning and increases durability. Bladed spokes, just 16 front and 20 rear, plus help you slice through the air while the shallow 23mm rim height ensure utterly predictable, reliable handling no matter how stiff a crosswind you may encounter. There's plenty of versatility regarding tire choice as these wheels are compatible with both tubeless as well as standard clincher tires. And all the home mechanics out there who love to eek every last iota of performance out of their bikes will be pleased to see that the bearings remain the traditional cup and cone variety for easy maintenance and adjustment.
