Shimano C35 Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher Shimano C35 Carbon Road Wheelset - Clincher
If you want stable, aerodynamic ride quality from Shimano's Dura-Ace wheel lineup, the C35 Carbon Clincher Wheelset is for you. The C35's weight is centered at the hubs to reduce rim and rotational weight. Combined with the aerodynamic 35mm rim depth, this wheelset gets up to speed faster than others and requires less effort to stay there. Shimano's angular contact bearings have a unique shape that allows them to be pushed as far outboard as possible. This makes the wheels capable of holding higher spoke tensions for a more agreeable ride quality. The C35 features Shimano's widest hub flanges ever, drastically increasing torsional and lateral rigidity, and guaranteeing maximum power transfer to your wheels. This Carbon Wheelset gets Shimano's OptBal 2:1 spoke lacing pattern. When examining spoke pull at the rear wheel, you'll notice that, under load, the non-drive side spokes pull twice as hard against the drive side spokes. So, Shimano changed the ratio of spokes between the sides. Now, the rear drive side features 21, three-cross stainless steel spokes, while the non-drive side has 7 radial laced spokes. This shift in the spoke ratio creates a perfect balance while force is being applied. The wheels still use just as many driving spokes as a 28-hole wheel, but with greater efficiency, balance, and weight savings. And to support this new system, the C35 uses an offset rim to reduce severity of the spoke angle on the drive side to increase lateral rigidity. The C35 wheelset uses ultra-stiff, oversized A7075 alloy axles and a quick-engaging titanium freehub body for even more efficiency. For braking, the wheels feature an aluminum brake track for a predictable stopping power that won't overheat the rim. Altogether, each component of the wheel has been designed as a symbiotic system for the ultimate in aerodynamics, efficiency, and pure speed.

Shimano XTR M9000-TL Race 29-inch Clincher Wheelset Shimano XTR M9000-TL Race 29-inch Clincher Wheelset
Shimano's XTR drivetrain has been completely revamped with the introduction of the latest 9000 series, and we're extremely happy to report similar reinvention of the excellent XTR wheelsets. The Shimano XTR M9000-TL Race 29-inch Clincher Wheelset is your new best XTR option for a race-ready cross-country clincher. The new XTR wheels are built with Shimano's new carbon-laminated alloy rim construction. The technique capitalizes on the advantages of both materials while using each to compensate for the other's shortcomings. For example, full-carbon wheels can be prohibitively expensive. Aluminum rims can be cheaper, but often heavier, sometimes weaker, and ride quality can be compromised, as well. Shimano decided to engineer the two in conjunction with each other: a lightweight alloy rim extrusion receives full carbon fiber reinforcement here, the result being a durable, light, and relatively inexpensive rim that is torsionally stiff, vertically forgiving, and doesn't cost a down payment on a car. We love the new look, too. The Race version of the rims are 20mm wide internally, while the Trail versions are wider, at 24mm internally, to accommodate wider tires and create a larger contact patch for greater control in technical situations. Down in the hubs, proprietary bearings keep the precision-machined hubs spinning for years, and a revised axle and bearing configuration saves a bit of weight, as well. The Shimano XTR M9000-TL Race 29-inch Clincher Wheelset comes with a 142x12mm rear axle, and 100x15mm front axle, and a freehub body that can accommodate Shimano 10- or 11-speed XTR drivetrains. Both front and rear wheels have 28 spokes, and both are compatible with CenterLock rotors only.

Shimano XTR WH-M9000-TL 27.5in Wheelset Shimano XTR WH-M9000-TL 27.5in Wheelset
Shimano's benchmark XTR groupset was recently re-engineered from top to bottom, and the wheels received the same treatment. New rim construction shines to make race-ready hoops like the new Shimano XTR M9000-TL Race 27. 5-inch Clincher Wheelset some of the most effective XC weaponry of the new racing season. The new XTR wheels are built with Shimano's new carbon-laminated alloy rim construction.

Shimano XTR WH-M9020-TL 27.5in Wheelset Shimano XTR WH-M9020-TL 27.5in Wheelset
Not too big, not too small, not too heavy, not too fragile, and not too expensive, the Shimano XTR WH-M9020-Tl 27. 5in Wheelset fills the need for a race-inspired MTB wheel that rides at a high level without getting banged up or costing you your firstborn (and it won't even eat your pre-ride porridge). When Shimano redesigned its XTR drivetrains, it figured it needed a new wheel to go with it, so here we are. The M9020 is based off the XC-race-ready M9000, and employs Shimano's carbon-laminated rim construction, which maximizes the advantages and minimizes the disadvantages of both materials. Carbon reinforcements keep the aluminum nice and stiff, while the aluminum keeps the ride relatively smooth and the price relatively affordable. The M9000 is also 4mm wider internally, which accommodates wider tires and creates a larger contact area, so you'll have more traction when your circumstances start getting treacherous. Both wheels are set up with Shimano XTR M9000 hubs, which'll spin until the sun collapses on
