Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Road Wheelset
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.
  • 6061 aluminum alloy rims deliver a super-lightweight and aerodynamic ride without compromising strength and stiffness
  • Wide flange hub and offset 23mm front rim for high rigidity and power transfer
  • Cup and cone bearings ensure low maintenance and best performance
  • Digital adjustment system provides a tool-free means to eliminate bearing play
  • 16/20 stainless steel, bladed spokes for strength and speed
  • Wear indicators on brake surface
  • Includes spacer for 10-speed systems
  • Compatible with tubeless tires and standard clincher tires/tubes
  • Hand-built quality

    Comments about Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Road Wheelset:

    Can use tube tire or tubeless tires.
    Not supposed to use tire levers to remove or install tires. this may be a challenge if I have a flat.
    Not sure how long rim will last because of brake ware indicator on the rim. Good value!

    Great All-Around Wheel for the Price

      Comments about Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Road Wheelset:

      I have a CAAD10 Ultegra. I had a crash and wrecked the Mavic Aksioms that came stock on the bike. I didn't have the budget for a true upgrade into a higher end wheel (frankly for the type of rider I am I'm not sure I ever would choose to spend that much). Rather than do a direct replacement for the Mavics, however, I decided to spend just a hair more and try the Ultegra wheelset.

      It could just be "new toy" fever, but I do feel a difference in the bike. They are a little lighter, but it's a negligible amount. The bike does feel a bit more spry and agile. Braking is very smooth. The smokey black finish with polished logos are also gorgeous. They match the Ultegra group already on my bike, and the 16 spokes front wheel has a nice minimal look. I also like the option of going tubeless in the future, too.

      This is about the best wheel set you can get for the money. Go for it.

        Comments about Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Road Wheelset:

        These wheels replaced an OEM wheel set on my Giant TCR Advanced. There was an immediate and noticeable difference in both feel and ride. Strongly recommended for anyone who trains and races, but doesn't want to spend 800-$1000 on a new wheel set.

          Been using this wheel set since April 2015. The wheels are light and the hubs spin freely but I`m having a problem keeping the rear wheel trued. Have had it trued several times but it keeps going out. Will be returning them to Nashbar for a new set. Otherwise a good wheel set.

            stiff and true, solid shimano quality. i used them to complement a full ultegra build, no problemo. run quiet, run smooth. bit heavy on the grams, but they're built so well, you really cant tell the difference. primo set.

              First, compliments to Nashbar for a very competitive price and quick delivery. As others noted, these wheels came true right out of the box.

              Certainly lightweight and a nice upgrade from my OEMs (Mavic CVP-22). Not enough riding yet to comment on durability, performance, etc.

              My only not-so-great comment is that my tire levers scratched the rim.

                I should have done this years ago. If you want to upgrade from stock wheels these are great. Wish I had done this sooner. Well worth the money money! I am not a small guy @ 194 lbs and these make me feel very safe. I ride 25 miles a day and do 2 Centuries each year. These wheels should last me until I need a recumbent. Looked at many wheelsets and I keep coming back to these.

                    These wheels are extremely strong. I highly recommend them. I use them tubless. They are tubeless ready. I use Hutchinson Fusion 3 Tubeless tires on these wheels. Very satisfied.

                    Fantastic Upgrade

                    Comments about Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 Road Wheelset:

                    Upgraded from a pair of Rol Race SL clinchers to the WH-6800 wheel set. They may weigh ~200g more but I cannot tell the difference (either in endurance of average speed over rides). They are silky quiet in the flats and provide plenty of vertical compliance when it's time to climb.

                    2 year warranty and Nashbar's quality assurance make the decision to purchase quite easy. A fantastic upgrade through and through.
