Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 Road Wheelset
If you have Dura-Ace 9000 (you lucky dog, you), then you're going to need some new hoops to throw on your bike. As you probably know, when Shimano turned up the volume on Dura-Ace, it went up to 11. Going to 11 speeds meant that the rear hub had to be narrowed to accommodate the extra cog, so the Dura-Ace 9000 11-speed cassette won't fit on a 10-speed freehub (a 10-speed cassette will fit on an 11-speed freehub--you just need an extra spacer). The Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 road wheelset was created to address this problem, offering a stiff, lightweight and race proven design that's ready to use with your DA 9000 group.

They feature a wider 20.8-inch rim profile for more stability in the corners, and the low-profile 24mm deep rims are stiff, spin-up quickly and handle well in a cross wind. These are amazing wheels for training, racing and getting wild and crazy on your amazing new set up. These wheels were tested under race conditions by Team Sky during the 2012 edition of the Tour de Frame, and we all know how that went for Mr. Wiggins and co. So if you're looking for the optimal set of wheels for your upgrade, you've found your set.

  • Alloy/carbon hybrid rim is lightweight, but offers superior braking performance
  • 24mm deep rims are both aerodynamic and stiff
  • 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

    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.

          Yes, these rims are expensive but they are worth every penny. They are super light and handle bumps in the road very well. Plus look very nice.

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

            I replaced a set of Mavic Ksyrium ES Helium Special Anniversary Edition wheels with this wheel set. The Mavics were an improvement over my previous wheels, but these Dura Ace wheels were a huge improvement over the Mavics! They are a lot smoother in the ride and much quieter as well. I rode on the Dura Ace wheels last week during a very windy day and was pleasantly surprised that I didn't get blown to the side like I would have with the Mavics. My overall average speed has also improved for short and long rides. For the price I don't think one can beat the performance. I noticed that a couple of reviews indicated that the cosmetic appearance of these wheels is lacking, but I disagree. I like the way they look. I highly recommend these wheels.

              I am a 200 pound male rider who averages 150-200 hilly training miles per week on a Specialized Roubaix. These wheels exceed my expectations in two areas: outstanding ride quality in dampening road shock on bad roads, and the strength of the wheels. On a recent ride in the local mountains, an encounter with a LARGE rock resulted only in a blow out, but no damage to the wheel. Very impressive quality. Also, with the Aluminum brake rim, I didn't have to worry about overheating the carbon wheels on the long decent!
