Improved Rigidity, Reduced Drag, & Less Weight
Introducing The Shimano WH-R9270 C50-TL Dura-Ace Disc Wheelset.
Built with aerodynamics, weight, and rigidity in mind, the tubeless-ready, full carbon WH-R9270 C50-TL Dura-Ace Disc Wheelset features a 12-speed freehub body specifically designed for the new 12-Speed Dura-Ace groupset.
The completely redesigned Dura-Ace R9200 wheel line-up blends low rolling weight with optimal rigidity for sprinting or breakaway efforts.
The full-carbon, tubeless wheel lineup features wider 21mm internal rim widths suited for modern road tires, and the 50mm rim depth is designed to optimize aerodynamic performance across a diverse range of conditions.
Shimano's new 'Direct Engagement' freehub structure provides increased driving rigidity for a more direct pedaling feeling, especially when accelerating. Despite the improved rigidity, the new Dura-Ace wheels and hubs do not compromise when it comes to weight.
The 'Direct Engagement' freehub shaves an impressive 45 grams while the full carbon rims and new spokes and nipples drop the overall weight of the new C50-TL wheels by over 161 grams compared to the current, shallower C40-TL wheels.
- All-around wheels for crits, stage races, time-trials, & all-day efforts
- The perfect balance of aerodynamics, rigidity, and lightweight construction
- 5-watt reduction in drag compared to current C40-TL wheels
- Front 1:1 standard spoke lacing & rear 2:1 Optbal spoke lacing
- Weight: 1461g
