Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 CL Road Wheelset
Shimano has redefined excellence in carbon fiber road wheels with their superb WH-9000 C24 CL edition. This flagship set of road wheels provides a perfect marriage between carbon fiber and aluminum with the structural elements of the rim created out of carbon fiber for stiffness and reduced rotational mass while the aluminum brake track delivers superb stopping power. The rim is wider (20.8mm) than previous Dura-Ace editions for more stability during cornering while its low-profile height (21mm front/23mm rear) means it's stiff, spins-up quickly, and handles well in crosswinds. The 16-spoke front wheel features radial lacing while the 20-spoke rear wheel utilizes a 2x pattern for increased strength. Both wheels, however, have bladed spokes for optimal aerodynamics. The rear wheel is 11-speed compatible and includes a titanium freehub body to keep the weight to a minimum.

These wheels are incredibly versatile and perfectly suited for training, racing, or just spirited riding on a daily basis. These wheels were tested under race conditions by Team Sky during the Tour de France - and Sky's recent record in La Grande Boucle certainly attests to their capacity to excel under the most demanding situations. So if you're looking for the optimal set of wheels for your upgrade, you've found your set.
  • Carbon fiber/aluminum hybrid rim is lightweight, but offers superior braking performance
  • 8/9/10/11-speed compatible freehub
  • Labyrinth double contact sealing keeps grease in and dirt out
  • Borozon-treated bearing races spin up quickly and keep rolling with minimal friction
  • Cold-forged and machined aluminum hub shell is lightweight and durable
  • Oversized A7075 alloy axle for extra rigidity and stiffness
  • Clincher version (not tubeless compatible)

    Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 Road Wheelset:

    I had wanted these wheels for a long time but they're not cheap. So I finally took the plunge. My situation - my bike cost about $1,800, all Ultegra parts, live in south Fla, ride 40-50 miles a week, weigh 170 lbs. Bought these to replace Mavic Aksium. These are noticeably lighter, stiffer, less jittery, 1-2 mph faster, much quieter on the road surface and in the freehub. True out of the box. Why did I wait so long to buy these?!!! Best upgrade every, by far.

    C24's are an upgrade to an Emonda SL6. These rims bought for daily use. Shod with Conti 4000s II & Bonti tubes (130g) the ride is noticeably smoother, F-23mm, R-25mm. Added benefit to me is noticeably reduced road noise, plus a slightly quieter freewheel.

      Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 Road Wheelset:

      This wheelset is the best I've ever owned. I bought these to replace a pair of Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels. The Dura Ace WH-9000 feels more responsive, approaching 1/2 pound lighter. I experience a noticeable improvement while climbing and out of the saddle (pushng hard). They are also quieter while free-wheeling. I would say, about half as loud compared to my old Mavics. Wheels have gotten more loud these days, I don't know why. I really like having wheels that are silent. These are the closest I've gotten in a few years. My only complaint about these wheels is the aesthetics. They could have put more decoration. In this respect, the Mavics have the upper hand. These wheels come with covers for transporting. I've yet to use them, but they look sturdy and compact. I would recommend them to anyone.

        Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 Road Wheelset:

        Updated review from first ride. The first word that comes to mind describing this set is sublime. This is a lively wheel set that is very responsive. One difference I immediately noticed is when I was riding in my normal endurance gear was I was one gear higher with the same effort. It's weird they seem to have a feel like a deeper wheel set when pushing on flats. These hubs are superb and roll so incredibly easy. The big place I noticed a difference was on those long grinds of 2% - 4% that I would normally click down a gear after the approach but stayed in the same gear and was 'on it' for double and triple' the distance with a small amount of power increase. In that essence, I would say these are excellent climbing wheels. Especially for punchy rollers. Hit a hard sprint to test and zero flex and it seems they roll so easy you can keep your wattage up for slightly longer duration most likely from the hubs. This is with GPS-4000S II tires and standard Specialized inner-tube.

            Just received from Nashbar, boxed and shipped perfectly, everything intact. Spacer, spoke wrenches, quick release skewers, 2 single wheel bags. No damage and wheels are true and spin forever. Boxed great! This is just an initial quality review and the carbon laminate, rim tape, spokes and hubs are all high quality with no flaws. Further review will be updated after riding.

            I replaced the standard wheel set on my Trek Domane 5.2 and knocked off over a pound in weight. I easily coast by others on the road. More power to moving me and not the equipment. I have about 150 miles on the wheels and I am very pleased.

              Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 Road Wheelset:

              Although they weren't perfectly true when received, after adjustment they exhibit very comfortable ride quality and feel secure in the corners. I have noticed no flex and the slightly wider width probably improves the handling. My carbon bike came with syncros rp2 wheels which are high quality but heavier @ 1720 grams. They are now used as trainers because the Shimanos are noticeably quicker to accelerate and give the bike a more lively and responsive feel. In my opinion, other than a good seat, light wheels make the biggest improvement in a given bike. This is a great set. Catch them on sale and they are hard to beat as an all around road wheel - light weight carbon with aluminum braking surface. You will smile.

                  Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 Road Wheelset:

                  Bought these wheels to upgrade the stock wheels that came with my Trek Domane 5.2. Needsless to say, these wheels were a huge upgrade. Compared to the stock wheels, these wheels seem to transfer more power into forward momentum when starting off from a dead stop (such as a traffic light). They also climb considerably better than the stock Trek Bontranger wheels. I'm a fairly heavy rider at 185 lbs. and not only did these wheels arrive almost perfectly true, they have stayed that way through Atlanta's many potholed roads. The wheels are mostly stable in cross winds. The only con is that were not cheap, but as they say, you get what you pay for.
