Carbon clinchers a step above the rest.

Rather than use the "wider is better" design that seems to be all the rage, Shimano put the Dura-Ace 9000 C24 Carbon Road Wheelset to wind tunnel testing. The result: the 21mm front and 23mm rear rim depths, coupled with a rim width of a narrow 20.8mm were found to not only create a smoother airflow, they also increased stability in a crosswind. Additionally, compared with its closest relation, the C24 WH-7900, the C24 WH-9000 features greater rigidity and vertical compliance for a comfortable ride. While the wheels are a high modulus carbon fiber, the braking track is aluminum for reliability.

A lightweight, aerodynamic wheel is useless if it doesn’t accelerate quickly. For this reason, Shimano ensured that the bulk of the rims’ weight is at the center. Shimano used a specifically designed bearing that is able to be pushed to the outside of the hub. The hubs also feature wide flanges for torsional and lateral rigidity, A7075 alloy axles, and a titanium freehub body. Sixteen radial-laced spokes are used on the front wheel and 20 double-cross on the rear.

  • High modulus carbon fiber with an aluminum brake track
  • For use with caliper brakes
  • Compatible with Shimano Dura-Ace 11-speed groupset

Is There A Rider Weight Limit Specified on the dura ace c24 wheelset

5 5

Love these wheels - great all around!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love these wheels for climbing and all around performance. They spin up quickly, given the weight at the hubs vs the rims. Makes a huge difference on a 13,000 ft climbing day. They also perform exceptionally well on the flats and provide a ton of confidence descending. Perfect balance of compliance and stiffness with bomb-proof build.

will these run a 10 speed and 11 speed cassette ?

Best Answer Responded on

It is set up with an 11 speed freehub, but these are compatible to run 10 speeds with a spacer behind the cassette

What is the warranty on the Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 CL ?

Responded on

Hey Rvk,
Shimano offers a 3 year warranty on these wheels from the date of purchase.

I've just ordered these and now a buddy is telling me that Shimano advises that you should not use a tire lever with them as it could bend the rim. Is that true??

Also, btw-- there is a type in your description above. You have: "This creates an even smoother airflow then varied front and rear rim depths." Should be "... than varied front and rear..."

Responded on

Hi, I took a look at the Shimano Dealer's Manual for Road Wheelsets, and found the following on page 29, in the section titled "Installing and removing tubeless tires."

"The tires should always be installed and removed by hand. Never use tools such as tire levers, as they can damage the seal between the tires and the rims and cause air to leak out from the tires."

I think this direction is specific to the installation of tubeless tires, and is concerned more over damaging the tubeless bead on the tire than the rim. Additionally, Shimano makes a tubeless-ready version of the c24 wheels, but this one is not, so the advice on tubeless tires does not apply.

I did not find any other reference to tire levers in the manual. Within reason, you should be fine to use a lever or two when installing or removing conventional non-tubeless tires.

It may be a silly question, but I am new to road cycling. I have a good bike, carbon fiber Scott, full Shimano Ultegra. Would these wheels be a compatible upgrade?

Responded on

This wheels would be an excellent upgrade and they will work on that bike as well. Give me a shout and I would love to help you out with an order.

is the freehub compatible with a sram cassette?

Responded on

Yes, I am running a 12-32 sram PG-1070 cassette on this wheelset.

Are there any "issues" using 25 mm tires...

Are there any "issues" using 25 mm tires on these wheels? I recently switched to 25 mm tires and would like to use them on these. Thank you.

Best Answer Responded on

You should have no issues running 25mm tires on these wheels.

Responded on

25mm is the way to go. I use a Scwalbe Marathon Plus 25mm on the back C24 for not flatting out, and a Michelin Pro Service Course 4 25mm on the front.

Responded on

I am running 25mm Continental 4000 S and they can be mounted by hand. Nice ride!

Responded on

I am running 28 mm Continental Gatorskin Hardshell with no problems, have done so for about 500 miles.

Wonderful Wheelset

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been riding a set of these for about 2000 miles. I should have written a review sooner. From my first mile on these I was very impressed. Having shopped around and looked at some expensive wheelsets, one of the local shops recommended these. This was my first set of high end wheels and the performance and feel is outstanding. The Shimano hubs are so smooth. Here in the mountains of Utah, cross winds can have a big affect on handling. These handle very well on long downhills. I did run these the first season as tubeless. They worked well on that set up, but after a number of bad tubeless tire quality issues, I decided to go back to a tube set up. Either way, these are fantastic wheels and a great value.

Does this Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 C24 Carbon Road Wheelset (Clincher) come with the wheel bags?

Responded on

My set just arrived from Competitivecyclist and the non-padded Shimano wheel bags were included. Liking these wheels so far!

Hi, I have a set of WH-9000 C24 wheels...

Hi, I have a set of WH-9000 C24 wheels that are now 9 months old and noticed that the lacquer is peeling on the rim. You can scratch it off using your finger nail. You can also see blisters in the lacquer the size of a pin head. Has anybody else observed this issue? Comments will be appreciated. Thanks Clive

Responded on

Shimano will exchange your flawed wheels for a new set (that they say will not have this problem). This can be done through your LBS.

Fantastic wheels

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these wheels for a few months now and put several hundred miles on them. They are super light, stiff, well made, the hubs are top-notch, and paired with the Open Corsa CX tires they are the best wheel I have ever ridden. I climb/descend for a majority of my riding and the aluminum braking surface was important to me, and performs excellent. Highly recommend.

C-24 Clincher Wheel Set

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these to save my Zipp 202's for races. The only advantage my 202 Tubulars have over these is on a high speed decent. Zipps handle cross winds much better. These obviously brake better with a aluminum brake track. They are much stiffer and corner better, climbing I can not see any difference. May not be scientific, but these feel firmer and safer.

i have campy record electronic 11 speed on my bike can i buy these wheels and find a campy spec cassette that will work?

Responded on

I have read that Shimano and Campy 11-speed cassettes and chains are interchangeable; this means you could buy a wheel with a Shimano freehub, install a 11-speed Shimano cassette and use it with a Campy drivetrain. See the following: http://velonews.competitor.com/2013/09/bikes-and-tech/drivetrain-compatibility-hidden-in-plain-sight_303199

I saw this ad from another sight, Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000 C24 CL . Are these different than Competitive Cyclist 9000 C24 wheels? These were also different color. If they are different, what are their differences?

Can I use those wheels with my 10-speed shift system?

Best Answer Responded on

Yes,
They come supplied with an additional spacer. You'll need to use that spacer, and the existing spacer that you already use with your 10 speed cassette.

Is there a rider weight limit specified for these wheels? I'm 185-190 lbs.

Best Answer Responded on

I've been using the previous generation of these wheels the past several years. The WH-7900-C24-TL. During this period, my weight has varied between 215 and 225 pounds. The wheels have been flawless. No issues at all. I would expect the WH-9000-C24-TL to be every bit as robust. When I go 11 speed, this is the wheelset I'll use.

Responded on

I weigh 190-195, 2k mileage no issues, great wheels....
