WH-9000 CL carbon clincher wheels, designed to meet pro road race criteria. The design concepts of the new generation Dura-Ace 9000 wheels created products specifically engineered with attributes that are required by specific racing disciplines. The BLADE concept development is Shimano’s first fully committed effort to develop an aerodynamically superior wheel; the new rim profile is the result of countless hours in the wind tunnel and real world time trial and triathlete professionals’ feedback and validation. The accelerating SPEED concept is an evolution of one of Shimano’s original Dura-Ace guiding principles of delivering the most efficient power transfer systems in the racing world, by constructing ultra-lightweight, stiff and durable rims.
Lightweight full carbon 35 mm deep 20.8 mm wide rim with alloy braking surface for improved aerodynamics and increased rigidity for sprinters and TT specialists
Alloy clincher rim maintains high braking performance with standard brake pads in all conditions
21 rear and 16 front stainless steel butted and bladed straight pull spokes for optimal balance and rigidity (OPTBAL)
Elbow-less spokes make for a strong yet compliant wheel
High lateral rigidity is produced with a 3 mm offset asymmetric rear rim and wide flange spacing
Freehub uses quick pawl engagement every 10 degrees
Labyrinth double-contact sealing effectively shuts out water and dirt
