Product Description

General Information

There are few things more beautiful than the perfect pair of the perfectly profiled aerodynamic carbon tubular wheels. The Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C35 Tubular Wheelset gives you a medium-deep dish wheel with an intoxicatingly light weight that will make these your go-to wheels whether you are planning to climb Ventoux or race over an exposed time trial course. 
 
In terms of profile, the Dura-Ace WH-9000-C35 Tubulars hit the bulls eye; you can actually feel the improvement on how the wheels cut through the wind, without also having that precarious premonition of when the next side gust might hit at the wrong time and send you embarrassingly into the next lane. To create the best possible all-around wheel, Shimano has focused on aerodynamics, lateral rigidity and ride quality. 
 
These wheel receive the benefit of the OptBal 2:1 spoke lacing on the rear wheel. What it stands for is “optimal balance” since the 21-spoke rear wheel is laced with fourteen drive side spokes and seven non-drive side spokes. The drive side is laced in a 3 cross pattern, designed to match the hub flange perfectly. The seven non-drive side are then radially laced, which means that they pull twice as hard versus the drive side spokes. Balancing the tension in this way increases lateral stiffness, which makes this 21-spoke wheel as strong as a 28-spoke wheel. Then with sixteen radially-laced spokes on the front, these are very light and responsive wheels. And the nipples are external, which is an oft-over-looked virtue. It means that any tuning they may need in the distant future will be simple to do without having to strip off the glued tire.
 
You’ll also get the benefit of Shimano’s hubs, which use the angular contact ball bearings and are designed to roll as smoothly as possible, thanks to the nature of the design. To improve lateral and torsional stiffness, the rear wheel has an off-set rim mated to a wider flange hub. The oversized A7075 alloy axles are super stiff, increasing the overall rigidity of the wheels. The more rigid, the more responsive they are going to feel. The freehub body is made from lightweight titanium. Compatible with Shimano and SRAM 11-speed systems, Shimano has also included a thin spacer so the wheels can still run with 8/9/10-speed cassettes. These wheels come with a three-year manufacturer warranty. They are also shipped with a set of Shimano carbon specific pads, the R55c4 carbon. You are strongly recommended to use only these carbon-specific brake pads for Shimano carbon wheels. You’ll get much better braking results, and using any other pads will void the warranty.  
 
The Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C35 Carbon Tubular Wheelset gives you the chance to ride pro-level wheels secure in the knowledge that you have a durable pair of hoops that will keep you flying down the road for many seasons.
