Ride smarter, not harder.
When the humble appearance of the Handspun Shimano Ultegra / Mavic Open Pro Rear Wheel rolls up to the ride, it's is a good indication that a seasoned rider is at the helm. This classic combination provides bombproof durability that lets you power through the winter in a light-enough package that still lets you give the KOM a run for its money come race season.
Shimano's Ultegra 6800 hub features ultra-smooth cup-and-cone bearings with a simplified Digital Click Adjustment that uses two 5 mm hex-keys and prevents the tension of your quick-release from adding additional tightness when mounted in the bike for perfect bearing adjustment that stays that way. The hub is laced with double-butted DT Competition spokes to Mavic's benchmark Open Pro rim. At 435 g, this welded, double-eyelet rim has been the trusted hoop of casual riders and elite-level racers alike thanks to its steadfast reliability and surprising stiffness and spin-up for an alloy box-section clincher.
9/10/11-speed compatible freehub. 32 spoke count. 130 mm rear spacing. Claimed weight is 1006 g.
