If the Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24-TL wheelset was good enough for Team Sky in the 2012 edition of the Tour de France (and it was, BTW), you can be darn sure it’s good to go for any kind of riding you and I are likely to subject it to. With a totally new design, a new hub and a tubeless-compatible rim, Shimano’s 9000-series wheels feature a hybrid carbon/aluminum rim that sets new standards for stiffness and light weight. Whether you run tubeless-ready tires or standard clinchers and tubes, you’ll find that the wider 20.8-inch rim profile with its larger contact patch gives you a lot more control in the corners. Yeah, we know deep profile wheels are cool, but the low-profile 24mm deep rims of the 9000 TL have a whole lot going for them, including incredible stiffness, fast spin-up, great handling in cross winds and a lighter weight that you’ll really appreciate when the road turns upwards.
Shimano’s 9000 Dura-Ace hub feature oversized alloy axles for extra rigidity, a stiffness-enhancing, wide flange rear hub, smooth-rolling angular contact ball bearings and a tool-free adjustment system that makes dialing in optimal performance easier than ever. The Dura-Ace WH-9000-C24-TL wheelset is laced with 16 spokes in the front (radially laced), and 20 rear (laced 2x).
